Ford F-150 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My 1997 F-150 271,500 mi.ment condition, makes a bump noise in the rear when turning right or left from level pavement onto a sudden hill at 5 mile an hour. Note: This winter I'm carrying 480 lbs. of sandbags. I never heard this sound last year. What should a technition be looking for when inspecting.
After about 15 minutes of driving and engine is warmed up, when I stop at a light,I have no oil pressure until I drive again. I have enough oil, so does this sound like my oil pump is going out?
I was at a tire dealer to get a front end alignment. He told me I couldn't get an alignment because the ball joints were worn out.

The technician told me I had to replace the upper and lower ball joints and the "frames" that came with them all at the same time. I am skeptical about this. Is all of this replacement necessary?
