I have an '83 F100 and the stone shield that protects the front brakes on
the left front wheel is rattling. The question is do I need it and if so,
how do I replace it? Is the part expensive?

UPDATE: My local Ford dealer says the stone shield is no longer available.
Anyone know where I can get one new or used?

I've got an intermittent problem with my '88 F150 w/ 300 I-6. For the last
few
weeks, the turn signals and heater/AC fan have quit working. Every once in
a
while (maybe once every other day or so for a minute or two), they will
resume
working. Any ideas?
Thanks,

I'm thinkin that it turns on your "check engine" light at some certain
interval, like every 60K or 90K so that a dutiful person such as your-
self can take it to a dealer and make sure that said dealer installs
new smog sensor stuff and runs up a bill in the neighborhood of
1000 bux or so.... :-)

Hey Guys,
I know that about a month ago, I saw a listing where one of the Ford
gentlemen had a problem with a popping sound whenever he would turn his
steering wheel. My problem is, I am getting that same popping sound when I
make turns. I just can't remember what the remedy was, let alone what the
actuall problem turned out to be. Leaving myself in the lists cabale hands.
And for some additional information, I just had new tires put on, the
alignment adjusted, and the brakes on the front redone, over a month ago.
New rotors at the time that the brakes were done. I also had a new bushing
put on the right side when I had the alignment done. The vehicle is a 94'
F-150, 2 wheel drive, I-6, 300.

Hi John,
You NEED the shield!
Sounds to me like one of the bolts that secure it to the
spindle assembly is loose. You'll have to remove the rotor
to re-tighten the bolts. Make sure the shield is 'straight'
and nothing's rubbing before you button everything up.

In the case you are referring to, the cause turned out to be a loose rivet
in the front crossmember. The fix was to hammer it tighter, I think (or to
remove it and replace it with a bolt/nut). I forget which.

In my truck (not my ford..Dodge 1/2ton 1985 2wd) When i get under a little
acceration such as cruising at 60 or going up a hill at any speed there seems
to be almost an electrical clicking sound from around or near the engine..
ofcourse i can spot it because it is only when the engine is under some
load.. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

My truck doesn't have a Check Engine light but it does have an Emissions
light. Does anybody know how to turn it off, aside from taking of the
instrument panel and pulling the bulb?

Same thing, different name. Reset the module that is under the dash...What
year is your truck?

My information only goes back to 85 but may be the same....bottom of dash, left
of steering column, back of dash there should be a modle about the size of
a pack
of cigarettes. There should be a re-set button to push...if so, push it
and light should
go out.
Phred, you got any more info for Chris here and his 84 Truck?

Subject: Re: choke heater tube (HELP)

Dale,

You can just drill out the rusted off piece of the of the choke tube out of
your exhaust manifold, and replace if with a piece of steel or copper line
that you can get from you local auto parts store. Just make sure you have
the correct fitting to screw onto you you choke housing.

The EGR tube connects from the EGR mouting plate to the exhaust manifold.
You will probably have to get the replace part from Ford or a junkyard. The
trick is getting the old one disconnected from the Exhaust manifold. You
will proably have to remove the exhaust manilfold and get it hot with a
torch, and then twist the old piece out, so that it doesn't break off and
leave an old piece in the exhaust manifold. Then I have seen some people
just remove the tube and put pipe plugs in both ends if you don't have to
worry about emissions testing.

<< Hi,

The heater tube that controls the choke is rusted right off of my manifold.
How does it connect and how can I fix it?

EGR tube is also rusted off and missing. Where does it connect and
how can I fix it?

I checked the Hanes manual but it didn't show it.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hail to the list.

thanx

On the 87 I had the module was to the right of the steering column behind
another module and the rest button was inside of a small hole on the box
with a piece of tape covering the hole. It did light up the emission light
and that truck had both a check engine light and the emission light.
