Subject: FTE 97up - transmission noises

We just bought a used 1997 Ford F-150 with 16,000 miles and we now find that
there is a hum now and then, not always, from the transmission. It occurs
when it is in the final gear and we have heard it at 35 MPH and at 55 MPH.
Is this normal or is it an indication of tranny problems to come?
>>
Have the dealer check for proper torque converter lockup, and I would have
them pull the tranny pan and look for metal bits or bits of clutch & brake
band facings. If the fluid is clean and pink, you shoul be O.K.

OK, I know there is a lot of very good car detailers out there, so I thought
I'd ask about this before I was suckered into it. I was watching an
"infomercial" on this product which basically described this wax as
something you hook up to your hose, spray on to to the vehicle, then dry it
off. Of course then they show the "frustrated waxer" waxing his vehicle,
putting about a whole bottle of wax onto one small =
applicator, then pounding his hood in frustration about how long his wax job
is taken. Then the bikini clad woman simply sprays her ferrari down, dries
it fof, and drives off. I am sceptical of course, but I thought I'd see if
anyone else had tried it and could recommend one way or another. I'm always
looking for a good wax job like that! :)

I have a question for any 99' PSD Owner with the 4R100 and a 4.10 LS
rear differential: What engine RPM are you turning when you are in
Overdrive, have the original tires and are driving 70 mph? I ask because
I'm considering getting a Gear Vendors Overdrive to drop the RPM down
since I'm getting the the 4.10 LS on my new F350. I don't want to see
2500 RPM driving down the highway in Overdrive, and I certainly don't
want to have to see 2500 RPM driving in 3rd when towing a heavy load.
Does anyone else out there have the Gear Vendors overdrive installed?

I think I'm ready to lift my '99 F150 4x4 ORP. This stuff is all new to
me, so all comments welcome! I was looking at the Pro-Comp setup. It seems
to be the most popular. What kind of price would I be looking at with
their 4" lift kit?

Thanks.

That would be like mixing water with oil! Also since it is only sprayed on
it means that it provides no cleaning or polishing action. Many good waxes
like McGuiar's Gold Class have polishing oils and cleaners that leave your
paint free of blemishes and provides a deep glossy shine that only rubbed on
wax can provide.

thats what I figured, I just thought I'd see if it was an infomercial that
was actually true! (I have yet to find one). I actually just got finished
waxing my truck with Meguiars Gold Class, yikes what a shine! Of course it
rained right after I waxed it, but the stuff that didn't slide right off
came right off, ando nce the dust settled in, just blew on it and off the
dust flew. That's some good stuff!
