Is 95 wire diagram same for96ford f150 5.0

No, the '96 is equipped with On Board Diagnostics II- (OBD-2). That is certainly not what is in the '95, which is OBD-first generation. Big difference, more sensors, more actuators, more controls by the PCM.

I have a 96 Ford F150 with 5.0 automatic. 63K actual miles. It is a gas guzzler. I changed gear ration from 355 to 273 plus added a cold air intake system. Total cost of about $150 spent so far. I go

The cold air intake could upset the PCM strategy,
as the MAF Sensor now reads intake or metered air
differently than the vehicle was designed for

The gear ratio would require a reflash of the PCM,
I would suspect

Fords-- all of them- never got good mileage going
back to the 1960's

My wifes 3.9 V8 Lincoln LS does real good,
about 20 to 22 around town & we get from
25 to 29.6 on a 200 mile interstate trip

My 2004 ford f150 triton registered a transfault with o/d light flashing I now only have 2nd gear, reverse and no o/d of course.This happened all of a sudden, and the fluid level was ok

Hello, You can try to unplug the connector at the trans. Clean it with WD40 and reconnect it and see what happens. The truck you have does have 5 TSB's for issues with the PCM. You may want to have the Dealer run the Vin# to see if there is a software fix for your truck.

This is not an official Recall, but the service may be authorized as a courtesy fix. The transmissions put into the trucks have a row of shift solenoids that are electric. They are controlled by the PCM and a solenoid can be deactivated by a faulty PCM.

I had to change my main engine wiring harness coming from the pcm i could not find one for a 1999 f150 but i was told a 1998 was the same but now im having electrical issues with alot of sensors is the...

No, they should be similar. The PN 96 (code name) came out in 1996 and ran through 2003. 2004 was the new P221 pcik up. If you need a wiring book, I have one for $7 plus $3 postage. Let me know

1996 f150 will not start

Hi:) If the engine will turn over but not fire up Check to spark module on the side of the distributor and check to make sure it is getting fuel from the fuel pump in the tank and the fuel relay on the drivers front inner fender. If the engine won't turn over check the solenoid and starter. And check for corroded green wire while you are check everything else.
