I have an '88 F-150 4X4 with the 5.0 V8 and the C4 auto tranny. I have a
trailmaster 3" body lift and i'm running 33x12.50 Thornbirds. Everything on
the truck has been very tough! Mine has 137,000 miles and the engine and
tranny have yet to be rebuilt. The transfer case and rearend and the
majority of the drivetrain is tough. The only recurring problem I've had so
far is with the engine, and that's bad fuel injectors. But thats easy to
fix.

Can someone please explain why my truck wouldn't stop dinging on the way
home from the mall? It's the ignition off/key in ignition/lights on
dinger that will constantly ding when ever the ignition is in the on
position. I had to blast my sterio all the way home just so it wasn't so
bad. It didn't to it on the way there, just on the way back. Anyone
know what would cause this? Oh, no lights on the dash were on, nor were
there any signs of anything malfunctioning.

And I'm a digester so please respond to me directly. Thanks!

Subject: Power steering "catch"

Hi All,

Made it from Washington state to Ohio with my "new" 94 F350 SC dually sucking
gas though those 460 cylinders for 3000 miles (now up to 17000 on the truck)
hauling a 3100 pound camper in the bed with only one or two problems. One
being a blowout on the inside dually the second day. Very glad there was
another tire there.

The other problem that arose was that the steering acts a little funny on
mostly right turns it seems. I first noticed it in Yellowstone on those long
curves. I'd start to turn the wheel back to the left and had to use a tiny
bit of force to break it off the turn. Now that I'm home and the camper is
off I have still noticed it. Just today on a gradual right curve, in the
plat, when I started to straighten the wheel it was like there was a catch,
or a sticking, to get out off the turn.
The first time it happened in Yellowstone it could have been a hazardous
situation if I had overreacted and there had been oncoming traffic.

Is the power steering pump failing or what?

BTW, I didn't pay more than $1.75 for Premium all the from WA to SD. Chicago
Turnpike price was as high as $2.37 or $2.47. (I didn't buy any`) OH was
$2.05. What a RIPOFF!
$2.00 per gallon = quarter a mile practically. But the Great White Buffalo
can handle the camper and pull a 20 foot Four Winns without blinking an eye.

Sounds like you had a great trip, all things considered. (The Great American
Gas Station Tour 2000?!?) As for the "catch" in the steering, I would give
the power steering pump a 5% probability of being the culprit, the steering
gear a 75% probability and a tie-rod end or ball joint a 20% probability.
Just out of curiosity, if you don't mind sharing, what was you MPG (if you
know)?

Alex

BTW, was that 17,000 or 170,000 miles in the truck?

Hi to the list,
I've been here for over a year and have shared some truck
news and problems with you all. Just wanted to say how well the 302 e/w Crane
rv cam pulled our 6500 lb. 5th wheel over the Chattanooga TN "rock". We went
down to Florida via Alabama and returned thru Georgia and over the mts. of
Tennessee on to KY. We averaged 9.5 mpg round trip. Didn't think that was too
bad at 65-70 mph most of the way.

The computer is located under the passenger side kick panel (to the right of
the passengers feet, forward of the door).
For aftermarket ECM suppliers, I have had decent luck in using GP Sorenson
and NAPA (the better of their lineup) electronic parts including ECM's. If
you give me some specifics or the original #, I could probably find some
aftermarket part #'s for you.

For the PCM, like I said, if you can give me the part number of it I can
check on the price of a re-build or you can call John yourself...
Let me know

I'd cry except this is getting to funny for words.

I brought the truck home Wednesday and didn't use it till this morning.
(Sat.). When I turned the key I got an engine check light. It also started
right up. Hadn't seen this for a while so it got my attention. I figured
maybe I don't need a PCM after all. Maybe just a bad connection.

When I got to the airport I popped the hood to see the plug Marv told me
about and low and behold there's a jumper set, a PCM, and two multi-pin test
leads for diagnostic equipment.

Now all I have to do is get this stuff back to the dealer W/O getting anyone
in dutch :-)

Most of those filters require a tool that can be purchased from Autozone or
any other parts store. The tool cost about $1.50 to $2.00, it can also be
used on various years also.

it more than likely has the FORD fuel line connectors, most parts stores
have these in house.
