1994 Ford F-350 Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1994 Ford F-350 based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
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 FIPL (fuel injection pump lever) sensor may fail. When this sensor goes bad, shifting is erratic and the Check Engine Light should illuminate. Proper adjustment of this sensor (when replacing it) is a must or the problem will continue. See service manuals for proper adjustment of the FIPL sensor.
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.
Catalytic converters can go bad and potentially plug the exhaust, hurting engine efficiency and performance.
Failure to change the power steering fluid can cause the fluid to become gray with metal particles. The contaminated fluid can damage the power steering pump resulting in a growling noise when the wheel is turned; the damaged pump will require replacement to eliminate the noise.. Life of the power steering gearbox and pump will be shortened if the fluid is not serviced regularly.
The tachometer sensor may fail; if the tachometer needle jumps around and the transmission has harsh shifts or does not upshift, this sensor should be checked. This sensor is mounted in a cover at the front of the motor.
