Love my '96 F150 supercab 4x4 except it keeps acting like we're driving
over a section of ridged highway similar to what warns you about an
impending stop sign. The dealership has changed the transmission oil twice
and seems to have no clue. I don't know if this is coming from the hubs,
driveshafts, or transmission. Has anyone else faced this and if so what was
the culprit? I want to make sure we get this solved before the warranty is
history. Thanks much.

Check your wheels/tires for balance,bent rims,or shifted belts in
tires.Also check U-Joints for binding or out of phase yokes, binding
splines on shafts.

Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

I've got a curious problem in my truck -- the poor darling seems to have
the A/C on when I turn it onto floor/dash mix with the blower on. I can
turn it onto floor only and the A/C shuts off. The A/C switch is NOT on!!
I could understand it if I was going into defrost mode . .. but it's not!
Any one have a similar experience or something I can start tracking down
the problem on?

Thanks in advance~!

You might want to take them off yourself and have them measured. New
rotors can usually be turned 2-3 times, (Depending on who is doing the
turning), so it would not hurt. Pep boys charges 5.00 each to turn loose
rotors. It's a good time to replace the wheel bearings also. I had a
wheel bearing go bad on me on my 1993 ranger with only 14,000 miles on it
and it basically welded itself to the spindle assembly. Thank goodness for
warranties!

Good Luck

I have a 93 Ranger XLT Super Cab with 30x9.5x15 BFG At's on Custom Rims and
they will only rub if you bottom out on a large speed bump going way to
fast. They do not rub at the extreme limits of the steering.

Hope this helps,

Joe

This seems to be true on most vehicles today. They claim that they are
using the A/C to remove moisture from the interior of the vehicle. At
least that is what my Chrysler dealer told me. I would much rather have
full control of my heater and A/C myself. Paul in Portland OR

Message-ID:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Gentlemen,

I have a 1995 F-250 Powerstroke with an E4OD transmission. Normally
during the first acceleration of the day, there is a delay of about 3-5
minutes before the torque converter will lock in(longer if colder).
Three weeks ago when the lock tried to occur, the transmission sounded
mushy and the overdrive light began flashing. At the next stop, the
transmission shifted harshly for the remainder of the trip.
At the dealer, they said I had a " excessive slip" fault and cleared it.
It ran and shifted fine.
Now, occasionaly after making a short trip (1-3 miles), stopping, and
then restarting after 5-10 minutes, the transmission will not lock the
torque converter. The first time I drove it 25 miles and it would never
lock. The next time I tried stopping and turning engine off, and
restarting. It would then shift properly. This has happened 5-6 times
and clears every time on restart.

The truck drives and pulls fine, but has 50K miles(no warranty). It
seems like symptoms of a bad sensor or the like as mechanics feel fine.

Planned on keeping this thing about ten years, but this worries me.

Any experiences or help would be appreciated.
