    Finally I'm free!!!!

    Thank you, I was just down your neck of the woods last weekend.My Daughter lives in Canton. I drove through downtown Asheville on Good Friday and my goodness that place was jumping. People was everywhere singing and dancing, it was crazy. Is it like that all the time?

    Finally I'm free!!!!

    Yes sir, it is I finally was able to trade this piece of trash in. After seatbelt lights, OD lights, front wheel bearings, rear wheel bearing. I put it on Craigslist and sold it in two days. I was on my way to dropping it of at the guys house and the trans. took a crap. Third gear gone, took...

    What in the world is this noise!!!!!!!

    I'm doing a search right now as to how the whole process goes. I figure I'll just take it into work and press it out and in. Is it a better idea to replace the entire hub or just the bearing? Is it easier than the front?

    What in the world is this noise!!!!!!!

    Their Duralast brand, Made in China. The Timken and SKF brands were double and more the price. I have ended up using bearing of all makes at work and never really had an issue with some from china. And these are running anywhere from 1500 to 5000rpm's for an 8 hour stretch. So I figure I try...

    Rear wheel bearing & r/diff issues

    I'll be calling tomorrow. Shouldn't be an issue that needs to be fixed "right". There is so many things that are notorious on these trucks. I will never buy a Ford again thats for sure, not after the beating they are letting us take.

    What in the world is this noise!!!!!!!

    I thought I had a wheel bearing bad, which corner? I don't know. I lifted all four and gripped the tires and nothing moved. I spun them and couldn't hear anything. My symptom is: As I pick up speed I start to hear a hum, starting around 30 MPH, and it gets louder up to around 60. If I turn...

    Keyless Entry Code

    Ahh Ok, I did see that you had to pop the dash panel up then go outside to see it. I thought Ford was out of their mind putting something like that on the trucks.

    OD light is out

    I have had an issue with the flashing OD light for a while. Shifts through all the gears fine and you can kick it in and out of OD all you want with the switch. But I always get the flashing OD light???? Well my daughter messed up the front of it, smashed up the bumper cover, grill, ripped...

    Another one of the MANY trans questions

    It does feel sloppy going into 2nd. But the whole trans always shifted different to me. Would that be the servo for 2nd and OD? I can get the servos fairly cheap so to speak.

    Another one of the MANY trans questions

    OK heres what I'm dealing with. If I manually shift I can feel every gear all the way through D. After a few miles or so I get my OD light flashing. If I push the OD button I can feel it kick out of OD. I have stock size tires 245/xx/17 and at 55 MPH I'm at around 2200 RPM's now I though it...

    O/D light on

    Thanks BB, I know its sounded stupid but so does the setup on these trannys. I sat in the house for a while in this heat and did a lot of reading on here. If I keep it I'll be putting a bigger cooler and external filter also and PRAY it solves the problem. Is that what it sounds like to...

    O/D light on

    No they can not check them. I think I have a heat problem I left to go to the store. Half way there the light still hasn't started flashing. So I turn around. Then it comes on, so I turn around and finish going to the store to find out they cannot read it. I get back in the truck and the light...

    O/D light on

    Its not flashing, its steady on. The truck shifts fine, no RPM's jumping around. I need to get it scanned. Will/can Autozone check for it?

    O/D light on

    I hate to start out this way but I will start by saying hey to everyone. Now to the good stuff, I have a 2002 exp. i took a trip easter and my O/D light started flashing almost home. I parked it went out a couple hours later and it never came back on again, till now. Now, it is not on until...
