    Eastist way to try end locate where it is coming from is to cut out some carboard or evan plywood,  That it will fit in between the front wheel of the vehicle ,Or evan drive the truck on to it when you park it for the night .Then before  you move the truck look where there is oil on the carboard the next morning.

Put a tray under the truck, is it leaking? If yes then have the engine cleaned and then after a week or so inspected for the location of the oil leak(s). If not oil is leaking then the engine has problems like piston ring Sn valve stem seals, all very expensive to repair,.

Open hood,look everywhere,if not at top of motor,get under vehicle and look and you should see and follow,if you need to get a mirror for a better view.Check by oil filter,oil pressure switch,valve cover.rear oil seal.If no leaking,then maybe it's burning oil,any smoke.

SOURCE: lost engine oil: 2002 Ford F150 Supercrew 4x4 5.4l engine

This is certainly one of the strangest things I have ever heard as a mechanic. . This almost sounds like some one is playing a game of letting your oil out this vehicle. With no visible leaks no burning smell of oil. However I would recommend that you check the coolant in the radiator and see if the oil is in the coolant. (If they are mixing together) If they are mixing the coolant should have a milky look to it, creamish white. If its good then the only other logical explanation is that the vehicle i s burning alot of oil, but if that was true you would see a grayish blue smoke from tail pipe. If you are 100% sure they are no oil leaks on this vehicle, then this problem is surely strange. Check coolant and get back to me. Good Luck

SOURCE: ford f150 2002 has no brake lights

yes there is. Above the brake pedal there is a switch tat turns the lights on when you press the pedal. It is tough to replace due to the lack o room to put your hands. but is an inexpensive part.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford F150. Cruise control stopped working.

Did you have the recall done on it ?
recall 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.

It could be a blow fuse in the recall harness, if you did have it done.

Try the self test, and see what the results are. If you do not get it into self test mode, it could be the fuse in teh recall harness that is blown. The 1st revision of the recall harness was an inline ATM fuse, not sure if the revision 2 was the same. If that fuse is blown, the switch is leaking, and should be checked.

Self-Test Diagnostics

WARNING:
This test is a key on engine off (KOEO) test only that is conducted in park only with emergency brake fully engaged.

1. Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.

2. Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.

The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.

Note:
There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

3. A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.

If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:

— 2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).

Ve a 2001 F150 that keeps losing oil pressure


could be but have you actually check the oil pressure

The oil pressure gauge on your dash is really just an warning light and you are not really looking at real oil pressure

Therefore you could have an electrical issue, mainly high resistance in the sender circuit that make the gauge read lower than actual
