its not the gears Jerry

check the window channel rubber for excessive wear

new channel replacement will not hurt your tint, spray silicon into the new
channel rubber, not on your tinted window, and the channel rubber will
slide nicely down into the channels and into place, mine no longer does the
high pitch screech noise.


> (rather than a farm truck used on dusty roads

I use to thing that dust was my problem because I fish a lot and travel
many dirt roads and after I washed the truck, the noise would go away for
about a day or two and then it would start all over again, so I replaced
the channel rubber and all was fine

I have the same problem and silicon spray will work for about a day or two,
and it washes out.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - E4OD and shifting problem

1st to 2nd gear appears to be fine, 3rd gear shift is around 30-35 mph, but
if it shifts into 3rd and I have to let off the gas for whatever reason and
then take off again (it drops below 30 mph because of the coasting) it will
start off in 2nd, which is good, however, it immediately slams into 3rd
about 2 seconds thereafter. I have the feeling that the range of 2nd gear
did not finish before it goes into 3rd. It will do this on just about any
occasion and it doesn't appear to be going fast enough to even shift into 3rd.

its a '92 F150, 302, E4OD
Changed fluid and filter recently

Any ideas, thoughts or suggestions?

Hey!
I would love to have it!
In return I have a cylinder head cc program originally for air cooled mot=
ors (.ie Porsche) but could be used to for water cooled as well. (on exc=
el)
If you like... let me know.

Thanks!

Subject: FTE 80-96 - coolant flushing

I just purchased a used F-250 PS :) to replace my F-150 w/ 300 and I'm in
the process of doing everything that should be done on a regular basis now
since I don't know when it was done last.
Normally I just flush the radiator w/ garden hose. What is the scoop w/ the
"flush 'n fill" systems that use a T in the hose and flush the entire
system. Is there an advantage/possible harm to cooling system?
(I know about the whole FW-15 additive thing when it comes to refilling)
Thanks,

Subject: Re: FTE 80-96 - Fuel gauge sticking

I agree that the gauge would probably read empty w/a broken wire. I
was just suggesting that it could be a short or there could be high
resistance from the sending unit. This is, of course, based on the
fact that my memory actually serves me correctly here that the unit
sends out low ohms when full. Keep us abreast on that gauge problem
(hehe he said abreast.....hehehe hehe).
Later,
