The truck is wobbling as we drive down the road.

First check the lug nuts, make sure there is no loose wheel in vehicle.
If the wheels are secure, then look for a deformed tire. Sometimes a steel belt inside the tire will delaminate from the rubber and cause a lump or bulge in the tire. It will nolonger be round.
There is no repair, just replace.

Tire preasure light comes on, tires are ok

Oh my!!! the dealership forgot to tell you when you bought the vehicle that you needed to rotate the air in the tires every 5,000 miles. just kiddin. I think that you can reset that per the instructions in the owners manual.

Can't get the tire off to change flat

If all of the lug nuts are off put two of them back on oppsite of each other but only about half a nut.
with the vehicle in the air take a 2x4 or a 4x4 aprox. 4' long hit the inside of the tire just under the rim rotate tire half a turn and repet the step the tire shoud jump out, and the two nuts will stop it from flying off and possible hurting someone... the rim sticking to the wheel hub is somewhat common when you replace the tire put some ANTI-SEZE on the threeds also not a lot this will alow the nuts from seazing up as well

GOOD LUCK hope this helps-sounds a little redneck but I know a few shops do this

The front right tire is making a scrapping nosie the the tire is rotating. I pull the tire off but was unable to rotate it because the brake is lock. Any thing i should do.

try loosening the adjuster, a brake pad could have come off and is scraping the hub, if you can't adjust it take off hub and look for damage

Tire trouble light has been on since I had the tires rotated, but there is no problem with the air pressure. Light stays on even though tire pressure is fine.

after rotating tires equipped with tpms, a relearn must be performed so the sensors know where they are. a tpms reprogrammer is required for this.

Tire sensor fault on our 2006 Ford Explorer after new tires

2006 Ford Truck Explorer
NOTE: The tire pressure sensor training prcedure must be done in an area without radio frequency (RF) noise. RF noise is generated by electrical motor and appliance operation, cell phones, and remote transmitters.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position
2. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait more than two minutes between each key cycle.
3. Press and release the brake pedal
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

1- Left Front Tire
2- Right Front Tire
3- Right Rear Tire
4- Left Rear Tire

5. Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait for more than two minutes between each key cycle.
6. The horn will sound once and the TPMS indicator will flash if train mode has been entered successfully. If equipped, the message center displays "TRAIN LEFT FRONT TIRE." Place the magnet on the valve stem of the LF tire pressure sensor. The horn will sound briefly to indicate that the tire pressure sensor has been recognized by the TPMS module.
7.Within two minutes after the horn sounds, place the magnet on the valve stem of the RF tire pressure sensor. NOTE: If the TPMS module does not recognize any one of the four tire pressure sensors during the tire training procedure, the horn will sound twice and the message center (if equipped) will display "TIRE TRAINING MODE INCOMPLETE." If this occurs, the entire procedure must be repeated from Step 1.
8. Repeat Step 7 for the RR and LR tires. When the tire training procedure is complete, the horn will sound once and the message center (if equipped) will display TIRE TRAINING MODE COMPLETE.

This should help. For now, probably all Fords are like this. And I do not believe that Ford puts sensors in their spares (some GMs do).
Good luck

I did not get a vehicle scheduled maintenance guide with our used car, how often do we need to get the lube and oil and how often do we need to get tire rotation. we have a 2002 ford mustang.

Oil change every 3000 miles

air filter inspect every 3000 miles // less if you in the country
Change every 12,000 miles

There is nothing to lube on a modern day car!

Wheel bearing inspect every 12,000 miles.

Fuel filter 24,000 miles or less

Tire rotation is depending on are you a lead foot driver.
Keep tabs on the rear treads.
The rear wear faster on RWD car.
The idea is keep the wear even.

Shop around,some shop is offering free tire rotation with oil change!

I rotate my tires every 6000 miles.

Need to know the correct tire rotation sequence for a 2003 ford taurus

Move the front to the rear and rear to the front. You don't need to cross them.

TLC Light is on after rotating the tires

You may have some uneven wear on your tires. If your tires have more than 1/4" difference in circumference (distance around the tire) the tires could be spinning at different speeds making your cars computer think that you are losing traction.
