Question about 1990 Ford F150

1 Answer

Starter motor won't disengage after startup

I have an '86 F150 half ton with the 4.9 six cylinder and a 4 speed transmission. I've replaced everything in the starting system, ring gear on flywheel, all cables, starter solenoid, battery, starter, and ignition switch. Never know when it will do it but when it does you have to disconnect battery cable to get it to stop. Then I'll check the solenoid to find that the contacts are stuck closed. Tap on it to free contacts and you're good to go for another few days or weeks. Do they make a heavier solenoid or is there something else I should look at.

Cruise control notworking on a 2002 F150


cruise controls are controlled by the following switches and sensors
1 the switch itself
2-- the clutch pedal sensor or the VSS in the auto transmission
3 the brake sensor ---4-- the gear change switch or selector
5-- the engine speed sensor ( tacho)
6-- the road speed (VSS )
if 1 or a combination is not working or is outside parameters , the cruise control will not switch on
the road speed in a manual is set at around 20 mph and any less will not engage cruise control(CC)
changing gears in a manual will disengage CC
touching the clutch pedal will not allow engagement or will disengage CC
for some sensors run the fault codes

2001 CRD Grand Voyager - clutch won't disengage.


Is there any fluid on the ground near the transmission? It's possible the clutch actuating cylinder has failed. If it was air in the line you would have noticed it the day you got it back. The master cylinder is on the firewall next to the brake master. You can add fluid if it's low. If it's empty then there may be a loose fitting or the bleeder screw on the actuating cylinder may be loose too.

Will a 86 motor swap into a 93 f150


The motor might with some modifications, a big difference in years and systems, though both are OBD-1. Not even sure the '86 is injected, or is it carbureted? Better off looking for an engine nearer to your '93. There could be multiple issues with sensors and their wiring between the two. Don't use shortcuts, scope it all out beforehand, or you could wind up with a half finished '93 with a forlorn "pond jumper for sale" in your driveway. good luck, Craig.

1985 ford pick up with a 1 ton clutch c5 transmission carborated will not fire


Check your timing. Sounds like the bolt holding the distributor may have come loose and let it turn a bit or your rotor in the cap is loose and not giving spark to the correct cylinder at the correct time.

My 86 ford f150 grinds when i try to put it in 4 hi and 4 low what is the grinding?


My first guess would be the transmission and/or the differential are moving when they should be stopped.
Does it do it after you have shifted and tried to move ?
Have you checked the fluid in the transfer case ?

Can anyone tell me if my F150 1987 is half ton or 3/4 ?


It is real simple. If it is an F-150 it is a half ton. If it was a 3/4 ton, it would be an F-250.

How to install a clutch kit on my 1994 mitsubishi mighty max


Disconnect the battery, disconnect the Hydraulic Line from the Slave Cylinder, Remove the Starter (2 bolts, 2 wires. Bolts are 14mm, 1 wire is 12mm, 1 plugs in), Remove the Driveshaft(s) (4 12mm bolts) Remove the 6 bolts from the bellhousing (4 are 14mm, 2 are 10mm)
Remove the bolt from the Transfer Case Mount, 12mm (only if it's a 4WD, if it's 2WD this doesn't apply), remove the 2 bolts that hold the Transmission Mount to the Crossmember (12mm or 14mm, it varies)
Slide the transmission back on the crossmember, away from the engine, I recommend running a ratchet strap across the frame to balance the transmission.
Remove the Pressure Plate from the Flywheel (Six 10mm bolts), Inspect the Pilot Bearing (if it needs replaced, you'll need to remove the Flywheel which is held on with six 18mm bolts, drive out the old bearing and drive in the new one, reinstall the flywheel, using Threadlocker on the bolts, torque the bolts to 100 ft lbs) Install the new clutch disc and Pressure Plate, with the centering tool inserted through the disc into the pilot bearing. Use thread locker on the pressure plate bolts and torque them to 20 ft lbs. Remove the centering/alignment tool after you've bolted it together
Remove old Throw Out bearing from input shaft on the transmission and slide the new one on. Slide the Transmission forward (make sure the input shaft slides into the pilot bearing, don't force the transmission into place or you could damage the clutch disc or break the input shaft) Torque the Bellhousing Bolts to 40 ft lbs (4 14mm bolts), Torque the 2 10mm bolts to 14 ft lbs, Install the Starter (torque bolts to 23 ft lbs), Reconnect Hydraulic Line to Slave Cylinder. Torque Transmission Mount Bolts to 30 ft lbs.
Reinstall Driveshafts, torque bolts on flange/yoke to 40 ft lbs. Fill Clutch Master Cylinder with DOT-3 Brake & Clutch Fluid, Open Bleeder Screw on Slave Cylinder and bleed the air out of the system, close bleeder screw.
Reconnect the wires to the Starter, Reconnect the battery.
