I went to bed and woke up in the middle of the night with the answer. If you answered yes to any of those questions then again I'll say you better pass on that truck. I had the very bad shudder and miss problem with cylinder 4 on my wifes 99 f150 4. Why start insulting the truck without even knowing much about it? I hear worst case scenario is your piston rings are gone and its leaking from the oil pan up. Oil was clean and smelled good even though it was new. Are you planning on towing with it? It seemed to run fine yesterday when I got done, but today I have the same problem.
Do you demand to get to 60mph as fast as possible? I swapped the coils packs, that didn't help. Also it is the 2001 4x4 offroad package. I have a 2001 f150 with a miss in the engine. One time I had a ford mustang that had a plug wire touching the block that burnt up. Hopefully someone can figure this out for me?? V10 is better because of the power and a diesel is just a diesel. And before anyone says anything i know a guy personally who has a 03 F-350 4x4 crew cab long bed with 4.
Thanks guys Well drove it home from work 12 miles still missing and around town for an hour still missing parked it overnight outside it was around 20 here in iowa last night. . Why start insulting the truck without even knowing much about it? I can hear it more down in the wheel well more than up top under the hood. I had to use some carb cleaner and some throttle body spray over a couple days to get it really clean. It seems like it runs worse when it is damp out or raining. Weird thing is it goes away immediately when i touch the gas 1000 rpm or so. Any fluid getting it the plug wells? Has coil springs over a solid Dana 60 axle, no torsion bars here.
Do you think an engine is weak if it has to downshift when pulling a hill? Speaking of needs, what are your needs? If so, how much weight? This Triton engine family is susceptible to issues with low oil pressure, spark plugs, general and valve train noise, engine rattle, knocking and ticking noises, noise under acceleration, timing components and the cam phaser. Problem moved to 1 cylinder. That engine probably wont have much power with such a large truck will it. Weird thing is it goes away immediately when i touch the gas 1000 rpm or so. I have the same problem.
Here's a link to some specs on that model year truck Lousy? No check engine light, oil pressure is slightly above half on the stock gauge, and no seemingly problems with how it runs. If too much carbon gets on your new plugs they will foul out and not spark. In park and low rpm under load ,so I replaced plugs still ran the same. This means you can be up and running again quickly and reliably. . The carbon will get stuck on the valves and the spark plugs. Im having similar problems with my 2002 F150 4.
The other night had real bad miss put heet water remover in tank by god it stopped the miss. I have replaced the plugs and the fuel filter. Truck has 126k miles on it. I put 1 in 4 and visa-versa. I have a 2001 f150 with a miss in the engine. Working on a misfire problem with this super crew. Has coil springs over a solid Dana 60 axle, no torsion bars here.
Also, check for frayed plug wires. Next evening, I swapped the injectors. I just got done replacing the injectors, coils, and installed brand new plugs. Are you towing a heavy load on a regular basis? It seemed to run fine yesterday when I got done, but today I have the same problem. I would look them up for you but that's too much work on my phone. I did drive a 02 ex cab 4x4 f-250 with a six speed manual and 4.
I can hear it more down in the wheel well more than up top under the hood. I just got done replacing the injectors, coils, and installed brand new plugs. I have the same problem. Now im hearing this knock pretty much only at idle. If so, how much weight? Just based on your opening post I'm gonna say you better pass on that truck. Think it might be egr related but will not bother with it until it happens in gear.
My 01 does it, the 4 2002 trucks at work do it, and they have pretty close to 200k on them. Ya thats what i was thinking go V10 Or diesel. Problem stayed on that cylinder. Coincidence or moisture in the tank ill never knowWell drove it home from work 12 miles still missing and around town for an hour still missing parked it overnight outside it was around 20 here in iowa last night. I noticed when i bought it it had a slight knock in the motor but wanting the truck i figured it was probably nothing to worry about. Is there supposed to be a vacuum line hooked up to it?
