I own a 1986 F150 351W, 4bbl. I am currently trying to find what is causing
hard starting when it is cold. I had to replace the ignition module earlier
but now it seems like the starter. My question is would the engine temp
have anything to do with the starter? Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

Hi Scott:

Other than a junkyard, you can order online. There are a number of places
that'll do
parts searches for you. The prices are OK and they are hooked into a
sattelite search
network (then, so are most junkyards these days).
You can e-mail me privately, if you want to check out these links,

Subject: RE: FTE 80-96 - After market remote cont

I installed the Designtech Autocommand remote system in my '96 F-150 one
year ago. (It was a Christmas '97 gift from my wife.) They have 3
models. One only starts the car, one starts, opens/locks doors (if you
already have power door locks) and one starts/locks and has an alarm.

I installed the start/door lock unit with the 3 button transmitter. It
will start the truck (it can be set to run for 10 or 15 minutes unless
you put the key in) It also locks & unlocks the doors. The 3rd button is
used to turn the headlights on (like when I'm going out to the garage at
night & need to find my way) You can also hook up the horn so it
"chirps" when any of the other functions work, and can be used in a
"panic mode" which will flash the lights & blow the horn if you push &
hold the button.

There are a number of other options you can set, including one that will
turn on the dome light when the doors are unlocked or the headlight
switch is pushed. I think there is also one that will power a remote
trunk opener.

My father and I spent about a 6 hours (over 2 days) to install the unit.
It can probably be done in less time, but this was the first time we had
done any work on the truck and we were taking lots of time, especially
around the airbag wires in the steering column. The kit came with
instructions, wiring charts and an instructional video. Their tech
support was also excellent, even calling back rather than keeping me on
hold when they were busy.

To me, it's a toss up whether the remote starter or the Loadhandler was
the best thing I ever got for my truck. With AM temps in the teens the
last 2 weeks, having a warm truck is GREAT!
And this Christmas, I got one for my wife's car.

Contact me directly if you want more info.

I think Warn makes Ford's automatic hubs and you may be able to get them by
contacting Warn. I doubt if they will fit but just yesterday there was a
post on the Ford Diesel Website where a guy had a pair of automatics from a
F-250 HD that he offered to sell to anyone wanting spares.

It's a '95 F-150 with the 302. I would hope that they would have worked
out any cooling system bugs by that time, but stranger things have happened.
I know the system is air-free (or at least I'm pretty gosh darn positive of
it).

Mike,

I forgot what truck and engine you have. Refresh my memory. Cycling is
generally a cooling system design problem. Air in the system can also
cause it, but that is not likely in your case with multiple thermostat
changes. Sometimes it can be controlled the thermostat, but not always.

Your moisture theory is probably right. It might be a good idea to blow some
hot air on it with a hair dryer to dry up the moisture so it won't happen
again (and it will; at the most inconvenient time possible -- Murphey's

Subject: FTE 80-96 - 4WD Manual Hubs

I'm new to using the 4WD mode of my wife's '86 BII. After reading the
owner's manuals in detail, it seems that you lock the front wheel hubs if
you anticipate you're going to need 4WD mode and switch between 2WD and 4WD
at will.

At what speed should you unlock the hubs? Does vehicle speed cause
premature wear on components if you leave the hubs locked?

I would appreciate some comments regarding other people's experiences with
using manual hubs and any tips.

It is great to be able to switch into 4WD in this snow.

Thanks.

Subject: Re: FTE 80-96 - 4WD Manual Hubs

You can run your vehicle with the hubs locked and the shifter in 2WD at just
about any speed, I frequently lock the hubs on my Bronco before taking the
Interstate over the mountain pass. When the hubs are locked you are turning
the front axles and drive line, but this will not cause any significant
additional wear on the drive train. In fact by turning the front
differential you are keeping the moving parts in it better lubricated than
if the hubs were unlocked. As far as shifting from 2WD to 4HI will driving
you can usually do it at any speed as there is no gear reduction going on
and the front axle will be spinning at about the same speed as the rear due
to the hubs being locked. Hope this helps.

*snip*

I'd recommend stopping the truck before getting out and trying to turn
the locking mechanism on the hubs. It makes life a lot easier. :)
The '84 Bronco I had had the manual hubs and I used the fourd wheel
drive up to around 55 mph without any problems. Going above that wasn't an
issue of whether or not the drivetrain could handle it. I just felt that if
I needed to use the four wheel drive, the conditions weren't good enough to
justify going any faster.
When I sold the truck it had around 120,000 mile on it, most of which
were put on before I purchased it. At no point did I notice any problems
pointing towards abnormal wear on the drivetrain. Let common sense dictate
how fast you go with the hubs engaged and you shouldn't have much to worry
about.

Steve,

I had a '90 Grand Prix with the 3.1L V6. This was a great car for exactly
five years--no problems. Then in one year I had the head gasket problem,
numerous electrical problems (2 ignition modules, 2 alternators, 1 engine
control module), and an oil hemorrhage so bad I had a river of oil flowing
out from under it. Doing the head gasket on these must be a royal pain,
since I went to two places, and neither one wanted to do it. Insisted that
it was something else. Gee, why does it look like someone's hosing
compressed air into my coolant recovery tank? I'm not talking about a few
bubbles here--I'm talking foam! That bad boy had a head of foam in there to
rival any beer I've ever seen!

Then I went to work for Ford for a few years, and have owned Fords ever
since. The GP was the first and only GM product I have ever owned. It may
be my last.

Dave brings up a lot of good points. The gauge comments are correct.
The practice of using gauges with wide "dead-bands" is pretty universal,
especially with Japanese cars. GM gauges are more accurate. GM
engineers have tried very hard to get the marketing people to let them
dampen the gauges and remove the numbers.

Dave, did your Pontiac have a 3800 V-6? THAT one was a bear to correct.

Dave, For 4Low you need to be stopped. For 4Hi revert to what Rade said.
Although my perference has always been that I have brought my bronco
to complete stop whether 4Low or HI. And never engage the xfercase
unless the hubs are locked.


> At what speed should you unlock the hubs?

0 mph. is the optimum speed but it can also depend on how
fast you can run to catch up to the tires to unlock them. :-)

Larry,

I'm not the 250 HD auto hubs will fit on my '95 F-150 but I will ask around.
From the comments I've heard about auto hubs, it would be cool if the hubs
from a 250 HD would fit. They might just be stronger than the standard auto
hubs that have a tendency to release and/or blow up from what I've heard
from people on the list.

Yeah, since I moved, we are both on the list and the subject is always
trucks, we will have to talk on the list from now on. I normally would have
just stuck my head in your door and asked where the heck do I get auto hubs
and I would not need to bother everyone on the list. I expect I will be
posting more now that I can't just ask you.

I think you told me you have auto hubs on one of your Fords but I don't
remember if you have had problems with them or not. I have had them on my
International Scout and they would just wear out, esp. if you did not take
them apart once a year and lube them up good. Most of the time I could just
get by with locking them up during the summer to move the grease around. The
Scout II had strange auto hubs. They were auto only for going forward. To
get them to work in reverse you had to get out and lock them. They don't
have a name on them or I would look them up and see what they had for my
Ford because I really liked them. I replaced them when I first got the
truck. I got a used set from the junk yard that looked just like the ones I
had.

I would be driving around in the summer and hear them start squeaking and
that meant it was time to pull them and grease them up again. I never had to
replace them again in the 5 years I had the truck though. Maybe because they
only auto locked in forward it allowed them to go longer without any stress
to make them blow up. next time I see the local Scout expert I will ask if
such a thing is available for the Ford. I have asked on the list several
times and got no answers. I guess no one has ever heard of them.

I am sorry Rick but I am going to have to disagree with you on this
one. It might be possible to climb out on the hood and lean down to lock
them in at just about any speed you choose. Although I prefer to come to a
complete stop before I lock my hubs, one should not underestimate the
ingenuity of truck owners like myself.

email you, off list, and generally bother you intensely to get this info.
Thanks,

Subject: FTE 80-96 - A wheel question. 92 F-150

After much thought, I'm going to keep my F-150 indefinitely!
(I pick it up at McCree Ford in League City for $949.99 in am)

I'm going to boost my rear springs, add a Koenig or Knapheide bed.

Is there some sort of 16" wheel that I can use, to get Rough Tough
"E-rated" tires under my will certainly be at least 500-600 pounds heavier
F-150????

Does per chance...a 97-99 F-150 2wd have the same 5 bolt pattern as mine?

Thanks in Advance!

Sending a list to our server is a lot of email, especially since
not everyone will want it. If someone has a large list they want
distributed, the best way is to email it to me and I'll add it
to the "Misc. Member Contributions" section of the web site.
