When I shut off the air and slow down, the roar stops and air works. This is only at lower rpm. Last time the roar began, the temp gage peaked, but the engine was not hot. When I restarted, the roar stopped and the gage went to normal. Can anyone give me some advice as to where to begin?
rattling sound as well but giving gas up to 1.4 rpm picks up pressure. What next??
I bought the truck new in MAY 2010. I had all the scheduled dealer maintenance completed as scheduled and the vehicle has never been off road. The four wheel drive has been engaged twice, and the majority of the miles have been on the highway. Thirty miles from FT Leonard Wood the transmission began slipping. The vehicle was sluggish when accelerating from a stopped position causing a hazard in city driving or merging onto the interstate. The vibration increased on the highway at speeds above 50 MPH making it difficult to steer. When I arrived at my destination, I dropped it at the dealership the next day for service. The service representative called and informed 2 maintenance lights were on for engine and transmission service. I agreed to move forward with the scheduled maintenance. The dealership called later that day and informed me I needed a new transmission but could not explain what the codes meant or the cost of repair. I asked for clarification, but no one ever got back to me with an update. I received a text my truck was ready for pick up, but the staff could not explain the problem. I am now at day seven and after countless phone calls to the dealership and Ford customer service line. No one can explain the issue or offer assistance because the vehicle is not under warranty! My questions. Why is the transmission shot after only 37,000 miles? If it is replaced, what reassurance do I have this problem will not reoccur in another 37,000 miles? Is there assistance for a drive train component replacement that is supposed to last 100,000 miles and likely defective? Why is this a warranty issue and not a quality issue? The staff at the Ford customer service center try to keep bouncing back to the dealership and refuse to put me in contact with the regional manager or supervision staff.
I've replaced the washer/wiper/turn signal assembly on the column and checked fuses and relays. The turn signals work, the wiper and washer do not. Any ideas?
I have had recent electrical done work under steering wheel in the where the electrical system is. For the anti theft device it kept my truck from starting randomly. It stopped but was never fixed just stopped however when it' did stop now the blinkers won't turn off automatically.
Could it be a fuel pressure problems
I don't know I just bought the truck
This happened before and I took off the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and reconnected. It worked just fine after that. This happened again, but when I did the battery deal again it didn't work. I already spent a ton of money getting work done on my truck and can't more. I am not car savvy, but I can google and youtube my way around. Any suggestions?
