Will a 1997 Ford F150 4 wheel drive transmission fit my 99 F150 4-wheel drive 4.6 motor

Noticed it was losing power going up a steep hill on freeway. It runs, not freeway safe. Had all the fluids topped off, oil changed, new oil filter and air filter, could it be the fuel filter>

Especially noticeable on the freeway. Truck drives normally until you lift your foot off the accelerator to slow down (like in traffic). When you accelerate again, you can feel the truck missing or slightly hesitating.

1st time it was running fine check the rest of fuses related to the air cond and they're ok

Had to put in thread repair kit .

Trouble with rpm sticking. If I take off slow its runs great. If I have to push pedal fast or hard the rooms get stuck very high. And than trans won't shift. I have to let engine cool than all is good again help please

Advance auto checked my alternator and battery. Told that alternator was bad so I purchased a new alternator. my battery then went dead so I purchased a new battery. When I went back to have the new alternator and battery checked I was told the new alternator was not charging the battery and that it could be an electrical problem. I changed the solenoid switch, voltage regulator and replaced the alternator again. Same problem alternator not charing the battery. I did noticed that the switch to starter cable had a melted burnt spot on it where the cable fits into it. Could this be my problem. Vehicle is 1984 Ford f-150 pickup 302 5.0 liter engine. Please help?

My engine light stays on.

Husband is searching for an F160. Our mechanic has told him he needs a V8 because on the V6 the cab would have to be removed for repairs. So... we are trying to find out if this is true before we by something that would be costly to repair in the future. We are searching for a 2011 thru current due to the engine... Thank you.

I'm want to know if the transmission
tube from a 1989 F150 2 wheel drive will work in my 1995 F150 4 when drive

Truck's display, gauges went out and truck lost all power. Diagnostic machine said alternator. Took to a local repair shop who said wiring harness needs to be replaced ( including battery cables and a new battery). Cannot rule out alternator but "believes" alternator is good at the power source.

acts like it's not getting fuel?Changed fuel filter,air filter,plugs,wires,distributor cap,ignition coil and it still won't crank?Runs great once you get it started!Can't understand what the problem could be!!

most of the time it turns over just fine. flywheel? Ignition switch? new starter but still does it. anything else electrical?

I've replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, battery starter, crank sensor, 2 PCM, engine wiring harness with fuse and relay box all in one, it will fire when spray starting fluid in the throttle body and it will try to start and if put enough it start for a second. It's spark and compression but the injectors are not working I put noid lights on and the lights never flash I have purchased two cam sensors and not replaced them yet because it's showing an electric pulse so it just want start anyone know anything about it.

The PCM twice and the fuel pump and fuel filter and crankshaft sensor the engine wiring harness with fuse and relay box. Starter and battery alternator and. But it's been sitting for over a year the steering column antenna for the PATS security system. And it will try to start if you spray starting fluid in the throttle body. I got 2 camshaft sensors. I haven't put on yet. It's firing and compression but I think the fuel injectors are not firing. I need help I'm just doing the shade tree mechanic I've been just replaced piece after piece and the locksmith has been out 3 times.

I have a 1992 f150 v8 and the transmission sometimes shifts very hard or bangs 1st and 2nd gear any ideas welcome thank you cardman

Oil pressure all of a sudden not registering full on oil runs fine

Hi there, I am a novice, I had trouble with my truck. It turned out to be the PCM. I had it replaced at an auto shop. They said that the PCM was flashed to my VIN, (whatever that entails) The problem now, it thinks it is being stolen. The only reason I know this is due to forums and advice from other mechanics online. I went to pick up my truck and it was fine, Until I drove home for the day and activated the alarm. I turned on the alarm with my key fob. Went back out, no start. the anti theft light is flashing rapidly..... the mechanics say there is nothing more that they can do. Or should I say they are refusing to help. They say I need to take to ford dealer. Considering I just spent two paychecks on the replacement of the PCM, I am broken hearted that they have taken advantage of me. I can only start my truck if I never ever use the alarm/ the fob (which is brand new because I thought it was the issue) or the keyless entry. Once any of those are used the truck thinks it is being stolen. That anti theft light starts flashing rapidly and it kills the start. I am asking What I should ask for? I can not afford to be bled to death of money, that I quite frankly do not have.
I can get it to start again by taking the negative off the battery and waiting for 10 minutes. Reattaching it, and it starts and runs soundly.

Please advise
Do I need to replace egnition? Would that circumvent the problem or introduce even more.
Do I need new keys? (I replaced the fob and had it done by a lock smith that deals with these things) Please keep in mind that I am a little older and had back surgery and I am limited. Takes me a while but I get it done. I am going to have to try to do it myself.

I just bought a 2013 f150. The truck was t-boned on the drivers side. The truck does not have the Keyless pad on the door to open it. The drivers door I did buy to replace the damaged door does have it. Is it possible to hook this up? I have that on my Explorer, and really like it.

Works great half the time. Turn engine on and fan works half the time. Other times it does not run. Any thought?

2012 f150 5.0l

Battery light came on when driving. Turned the truck off, it would turn over but no crank. Tested battery, battery is new and is fine. Truck would not start with a jump. Checked all fuses and they were fine. I sprayed a squirt of starting fluid into the throttle body and got it to start and run for an hour and a half until i turned it off. After turning it off it went back to turning over with no crank.

took off and replaced the fuel pump control module. Truck still wont turn over.

Took off the fuel line to the fuel rails. When trying to start the truck no fuel is coming out.

Bought a new fuel pump but haven't installed it because the fact that the battery light came on is throwing me for a loop. Any suggestions?

Truck needed a new computer so mechanic put in a used one and couldn't program it/re-key it(?). So it set in his yard while he tried to find someone to re-key it. During this time, mice ate any wiring they could. Mechanic never found someone to re-key truck and couldnt get truck started to make sure new (old) computer is working. Had it towed to a dealership. Was told it would cost more to re-wire it then its worth. It's now sitting in my front yard. Could I rewire it myself? I'm not a mechanic, have never worked on vehicles but just wondering... how much would re-wiring it cost? (If I could find anyone to do it!) Thanks for any advice or help
