Question about 2008 Ford F-150

1 Answer

I was sold a new f150 4x4 with the transfer shifter on the floor. I followed the instructions for towing it behind my motor home to a tee. The transmission was shelled after towing approximately 150 miles. Ford claims it was my fault; because the transfer case was not in neutral - when in fact it was. has anyone had or know of someone who has encountered the same problem?

Yes, we had one a few month ago. There really isnt much that you can do since its not that common. When this is reported enough Ford will investigate and issue a TSB and or recall. Since its under warrenty your stuck with what the Dealer recommends. You can lodge complaints with the the proper agencies so your problem is counted. Its takes enough complaints to get the ball rolling for a fix.

You can flat tow it. Transfer case in neutral, transmission in park. You need a key one click on to so the steering wheel turns. If your towing behind a motor home you need brakes and lights. Research Blue OX

Tow my 2011 Nissan frontier behind my motorhome


I wouldn't flat tow any vehicle & expect
the transmission or transfer case, to be happy
about it,in the long run

If you study your owners manuals & service manuals
& towing stuff,you will see no manufacturer recommends
the driven wheels be on the ground.

I have 2014 frontier-so that is both ends, of a 4x4

I would put it on a trailer

Too much in the front & rear of the drive train, for me
to tow, other than a trailer

I guess having once owned a trans shop,you see my concerns
