My seat in the back folds down flat. It squeaks like mad when it's up in the full seat position. I rarely put it down, almost never. When someone sits back there it doesn't squeak. It's driving me mad!

I have a replacement gas tank that we're taking off of a parts truck, and it has residue in it. How do I remove said residue without harming the new gas that will be put into it or the tank itself?

I was told it something to do with theft warning signal

It was recommended I just buy a new engine for the truck, but is there any alternative?

I was told I only have two options. I have no idea which would be the better investment.

The last mechanic I'd taken the truck to gave up after hours of attempting to remove it.

I paid only five hundred dollars for the vehicle. I love the thing but I've been told it's in need of a new engine. How much should I expect to pay for both the engine and the work to replace it?

It seems like every time I turn on or change over to AC or the heater, there is a lot of creaking going on. Is this a problem?

I clean this often, but in no time, there is a huge blue pile of corrosion on top of the negative battery terminal. Why?

i.e. the steering wheel wiggles a little bit back and forth, like a strong vibration.

I detect a sound from rear end while driving over 20 MPH but more pronounced while cornering.

Also, my brights won't go off no matter how much I push or pull on the paddle. They won't reset after the truck has been turned off. I suspect the two issues are connected. Anyone else have this problem?

i replaced the belt and the tension wheel it is still making the noise. the noise is coming from around the alternator and smog pump area. could it be a bearing going out on one of them. how do i determine which one it is

Well yup I have to fix it. What. Is best have the tranny shop rebuild it and 1 year warranty or one from ford with a 3 year warranty. Difference in price is $800.

Can't shift out of park have to pump the brake pedal to shift into a gear

Started out going dead but would crank right up. Then I had to switch from rear to front tank and it would fire right up and go dead when I put it into gear but when I switched back to the rear tank it ran fine for a while. Replaced fuel tank and pump. No change. Kept getting worse having to turn it over and over and over before it would crank. Finally died and had towed to mechanic. Replaced distributor and ran fine for about three weeks and started again. Replaced distributor again. Immediately went dead. Then it bucks as if though losing fire. Fuel pressure remains constant when it dies. After it has a bucking fit and I make it home, it cranks and runs fine for about 70 miles and starts bucking. Sometimes I can disconnect the positive cable for a minute then put it back on and it cranks up and runs fine for a while. Things that I have replaced, battery cable ends, fuel tank selector switch, ignition control module, computer, idle air control valve, batter cable ends. Still intermittently and violently bucks and dies. I have the dash board completely torn apart looking for a short in the wiring on the firewall. I would appreciate any suggestions as I the truck has spent more than ten weeks several different shops and I simply cannot get it figured out. I have only managed to get it to act up in front of a mechanic one time who said he was going to run some tests in the morning but again, it cranks right up and drives fine when it is cold so no dice. The truck is not throwing any codes either. Thanks in advance.

Trying to locate the temperature coolant sensor on a 2004 F 150

Occurs when first cranked after sitting. After it's in gear, it pulses, vibrates. At takeoff, it sputters like there's a blockage of fuel to the engine. After some warm-up, it's a bit better. Hopefully, just a fuel filter? Some say a vacuum leak? I added fuel injector cleaner, no change. HELP!

truck starts but dies when i put it in gear

Truck won't start. Just clicks. New starter relay switch didn't help. What else could it be?
