Question about Ford F-150

2 Answers

I have a 2000 f150, that has not been started in about a year. Got it started and it started right up, but when I put it in gear it bucks like crazy, put it back in N or P and it smooths right out, no

Thought it might be water in the gas because it sat so long, so I put in dry gas, not much help. Don't know where to go to from here!

If it is bucking when you put it in drive, the ECM is having issues. This could be a bad oxygen sensor or bad ground on the ECM. When the car is in park, the ECM is not sensing the exhaust gasses. When you put it in drive it is,

I would ask first have you been able to drive it around the property or around the block? Does the trans shift OK? If so lets go back to the engine and vacuum leaks due to cracked hoses. Check and replace any hoses that are cracked or possibly missing or the ones that became mouse food over the last year, and don't neglect to follow hoses from engine compartment to under cab. Check for chewed wires also. This won't take you long. Please let me know what you find. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

New key has to be programmed to match computer in vehicle ! It takes 2 new keys and a programmer to accomplish this ! You will go crazy trying to chase it down , so just call a locksmith or someone witha programmer now before you damage something in the sustenta !

2000 f150 just started jumping in and out of od to 3rd check eng light is not on


the 4th gear shift solenoid locks the gear into place
It is weak now so a replacement is needed
It is located inside the transmission and is easy to access it once the bottom pan is removed

Put truck in park and go back and it will not start


Sounds like a neutral safety switch is bad or needs adjusted. The switch prevents the truck from being started in gear....maybe try adjusting the shifter linkage at the transmission and see it that helps first.

Truck wont idle right only some times


Idle Air control valve is the typical problem on all fords, I'd check that as the first thing, a vacuum leak as well, or a bad egr valve, my number one guess is IAC MOTOR. It's easy to replace too, although around sixty or seventy bucks

Solution.... change the fuel filter and we can go from there

Hope this helps
