2009 Ford F-150 ProblemsWater 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.
A ticking noise may develop from the engine due to a warped exhaust manifold. Damaged exhaust manifolds will require replacement to correct this issue.
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 RecallsOne 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.
Ford has recalled certain 2009 F150 trucks for a concern with the brake stop lamp switch. On some vehicles, the stop lamp switch may be maladjusted, which can cause a delay in illumination of the brake lights. This could pose a safety concern and increase the risk of an accident. Dealers will remove and reinstall the brake stop lamp switch, adjusting the position.
