Question about Ford F-150

1 Answer

I just bought a 1990 F-150 auto, 4x4. After a better inspection I found all the fluids where bone dry, and while looking at the undercarage I found oil beeded up on the out side of the oil pan. My question is should I replace all the fluids and see were I might be leaking, or replace the fluids and see a professional in case there is any major damage.

Check the sensors on the transmission. May just be corrosion on the sensors or it may be a faulty sensor. Also, the torque converter bearing may have went bad due to the running it on low transmission fluid.

My power steering was bone dry


Lacking power may mean a burned out pump but whine is caused by air in the pump. A mechanic had me jack up the front end of my van after I refilled the reservoir on the power steering. He said to turn the steering wheel from stop to stop back and forth at least 120 times to work the air out of the pump. Afterwards it seemed to work ok but still had a whine until I got rid of it.

2005 trail blazer very jerky and rough in 4x4 auto /hi sems to pull to one side then the other in a wandering motion had axles actuator checked seems to be ok what can cause this


If you're driving on dry pavement in 4x4 mode, you will get this pulling sensation. 4x4 should only be used when road conditions are wet or slippery. Another thing to check is when was the last time the transfer case fluid has been changed, it is required to be changed every 50K miles.

sorry to say trans is fried.
Consider a used trans from the bone yard
or a rebuilt one.
An independent auto shop is likely to give you a fair price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
