    I was reading your post found on this page:

    http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/77...-motors-8.html

    I have the "ticking" noise and live in Ada, OK. After reading this post and others, it seems like you have a fix for most of the issues with 5.4. Is bringing in my 2007 F-150 an option? You can reach me at jakedeeweaver@gmail.com

    Thank you for your time,

    Jake

    the oil pressure switch has a tendency to fail on these vehicles.the switch is located on the oil filter housing.it should fix your problem.sorry for the delay in answering your question i have been snowed in and my home computer is in the shop.

    Happy Holidays. Sorry to trouble you with this, but I didn't find an answer in the articles files, so I thought I'd ask someone who'd know. My '01 F-150 w/100k miles has suddenly, about 1 week before oil change, started indicating low oil pressure. After the change the problem went away for about a week. Then during a bout of extreme snow/cold (for central virginia, that is) the problem returned. Someone on the forum suggested it might simply be the pressure switch and, since they are relatively inexpensive and I'm 30 miles from a mechanic, I thought I might try that before paying for a 30 mile tow. So, to my question: where is the switch located and can a tyro with tools change it? Thanks for listening to my plea. regards, michael

    Hi l-m tech, Im having trouble figuring out a short/electrical gremlin in my 96 f-350 (7.3 power everything factory alarm) and was hoping you can point me in the right direction. It acts like a GEM failure as all of the accesories affect each other, but I understand this truck doesnt have one. Examples are windshield wipers work their way up if you use the power windows, AC, door locks etc. Tach drops off and blinkers light dimly. I have checked all wiring, ground straps etc. I have tried isolating it pulling fuses etc with no luck...any ideas?
