1990 Ford f-150 lariat 5.0 efi motor 107,000 original miles
Its an '84 (not '90) F150. OK on short drives but beyond 20 mi. it begins pulling very hard to the left, shudders hard & won't go above 35-40mph; very hard to keep it steering straight. After stopping the front left wheel is very hot to the touch, a metallic smell from the wheel well and a loud, fast metallic 'tinging' sound that slows down as it cools. After a 1-2 hour stop its usually OK, not pulling left or shuddering for short drives home but comes back if needing to drive another +20 miles. The problem might be brought on by having to brake hard at higher speeds, but lately its happening even when I drive slower, downshift into stop lights, stay off freeways etc.
The coil isn't putting fire to the distributor. The test I ran told me it was the"pip" sensor mounted on the distributor. This is the 4th distributor and I have replaced almost every other part related to the system ( throttle position sensor,egr valve,fuel filter and pump,plugs and wires,alternator,coil etc..). What is goig on?????
This is the 4th new distributor, and all new related parts. New egr valve, throttle position sensor,fuel pump and filter,alternator,plugs and wires, and a few others. PLEASE HELP ME OUT
I buy a new battery new fuel pump then it did good but it started to do it again so I buy a new fuel filter thought it was getting good gas stuff but that didn't fix the problem
First off the truck is an 88 but there was no option for that. The problem... It was running fine then died while sitting. I had it towed home to work on it. I check for spark and no air blockage. I tested fuel pressure. So I changed the map sensor and the fuel filter. It will fire first try then die then you canfy get it to fire agian unless you let is sit for a few hours. What am I missing?
This vehicle is actually a 1987 Ford F150. Sounds as though it was a gas problem when it stopped (gradually died down, I pumped the gas. Would not run or start). Replaced the fuel pump and filter. It still cranks and will not start. Checked for fire to plugs (ok), replaced rotor and cap (new), no back fire or kick back.

Gauges or tach. speedo good. fuses checked. Is there an IVR like in before computer vehicles? would that affect tach?
I added power brakes to my '41 Ford truck and with the engine running, there is a vacuum leak at the pedal rod. Moving the brake pedal stops the leak for a few seconds and then it returns. Do I have the pedal adjusted badly or is the booster bad?
uck Iam sure it needs a modular also.
My 1990 f150 starts when I crank and step on gas. Release gas pedal then it shuts off. Help
