4 low

First the obvious. You have to stop, put it in neutral, and then shift out of 4 low. It would be pretty noticeable on pavement if you were still in 4 wheel drive, especially low range. Is it...

About a year ago or so I experienced the "fail safe" mode. This was coming off a long interstate run and slowing down for the city. Doing some research I decided to clean the Throttle body. Which was...

Similar on mine as well

2004 101000 miles. Whined since I bought it around 4 years ago. 30,000 miles. Starts around 50 MPH and quiets a bit, but always there over 50. Had a mechanic, albeit biased, tell me the rear end was...

My experience with the 04' 5.4

To paraphrase another person's post. A forum brings out mostly the bad feedback on vehicles. People with no issues generally aren't here looking for solutions. With that said, I own an 04 that had...

It is a math equation, and never buy new.

Calculate what a new vehicle will cost. I will use theoretical numbers.
40,000 if you have cash. Probably more like 50,000 these days for pickups. (Most never do and finance vehicles for...

howl bad or not so bad, or really bad?? :)

Varsity, what if you just keep driving it?? Mine has howled for 20,000 miles probably. Or can this nut be loosened? Or re-torqued? Or is it too late when it is in "howling" mode?

My 2004 F150 experience

I also had the "shudder" when I purchased the pickup two years ago. I changed to royal purple 75-140 and added the ford limited slip additive. Problem gone. I also have the "howl" issue at around 50...
