SOURCE: oil light flickers on and

hi,
first check the sender wire to make sure its fastened securely, its probably close to the oil filter, maybe its shorting somehow but most likely its time to change the oil, and oil filter hopefully is clogged. If it still does it after you check those then it could be sludge has built up in the oil pump inlet screen and its not getting pressure the way it should, I wouldnt drive it much untill you either get a a mechanic to look at it, or you pull the oil pan and take a look at the oil filter inlet yourself.

good luck!

SOURCE: How to replace map & dome light bulbs on a 2008 Ford F-150 Super

2008 Ford F-150 SuperCrew Cab (without moon roof or rails): How to replace the map light bulbs.  First, you'll need a "trim pad remover."  It is a tool with a screwdriver handle and the metal part has a 'smooth' forked tongue (see Snap-on Stock#: A177A for picture).  Go to the center counsel and "gingerly" work around he counsel and pull down at the same time.  The counsil is held in by six snap in tongs.  It should remove pretty easily.  once down, you'll see where the bulbs are.  Unscrew and replace.  Now, just line up the tongs and gently bump or hit the pressure points (where the tongs are) and it should snap into place.  It should take no more than five minutes, tops.

SOURCE: temperature gauge goes up and oil light goes on

It's overheating.  check thermostat and water pump, also radiator coolant levels.  once you get it running at normal temp again take it to the shop and have them do a chemical test to see if the head gasket was damaged or the block was warped or cracked as this usually happens when your car overheats.

I have a 99 Ford Expedition I was coming home and the battery light came on. Went to the part stor and put in a new battery,now my heater won't turn on and my light don't turn on and my gauges jump around....


This sounds more like a faulty alternator. Sometimes an alternator can still produce adequate voltage and amperage to keep everything running, but they are governed by a voltage regulator. If the regulator goes bad, the alternator may have little of no output, or it will not limit itself properly causing gauge problems, and various light on the dash to not work or sporadically come on.
I'd take the vehicle to have the alternator tested at least.
Don't settle for one of the part store tests, they won't give you all the information you will need. A properly working alternator should charge anywhere between 13-14.6 volts and depending on the vehicle 90-150 amps.
I hope this helps in some way

I have a 2008 Ford F-150 4x4 , 5.4 litre engine and the battery light came on so I had it diagnosed and was told to replace the alternator . It caused multiple trouble codes to come on as well so I...


The signal for charging system goes from the generator to the PCM, then to the instrument panel gauge. If that signal is lost or the PCM is sending a false signal the light will come on. Unfortunately, there is no way to check that without a Ford IDS scanner through a dealer. It may have a bad wire or bad PCM. I have seen loose terminals or broken wires from wiring connector at alternator. I would definitely check there before going to a dealer though.

Guages goes dead while driving


Noting your Year of the truck, I would head to a Dealer for a Warranty repair. It could be a loose connector under the dash or a defective Ignition switch. For awhile, many Ford trucks had a problem when turning on, the gauges would bounce over to the right and max out.

Best to check while Warranty is good.

1987 ford 150 rear fuel tank not working


Remove the fuel selector switch from the dash, you can test it with a simple $8.00 swing volt/ohm meter. Its probably bad. Note there is a valve switch under the drivers door jam that selects witch fuel line to use, that is the second place to look. Hope it works..
