2009 Ford F-150 Problems

Water leak at high mount stop light

Water leaks that appear at the headliner and rear seat area have been known to be coming from the rear high mount stop light. The gasket that seals the light becomes warped over time and allows water to enter through the stop light into the cab area. A revised stop light is available, but I have found that properly placed caulk or foam tape will work also.

Ticking Type Noise Due to Warped Exhaust Manifold

A ticking noise may develop from the engine due to a warped exhaust manifold. Damaged exhaust manifolds will require replacement to correct this issue.

Engine Oil Pan Gasket May Leak

The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.

2009 Ford F-150 Recalls

One or More Interior Door Handles May Break

The door handle spring retainer may break, which can prevent the door handle from returning to the stowed position. In the event of a side impact crash, the door latch could release, resulting in unexpected opening of the door. Dealers will first inspect and repair door handles that are loose. Once parts are available, all interior door handles will be inspected and repaired or replaced as necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on February 14, 2011. The Ford recall number is 11S15.
