    so far, not impressed by answers.
    #1 sends me to ford fourm
    #2 not sure what chrome cap is on transmission shifter.

    If this is as good as it gets - refund fee.

    The reason I asked where it was because it was not stated anywhere that it was off the transmission shifter it could have been off the solenoid shifter for the throttle control actuator.

    If it is specific answers which you require then you must give specifics in your question also.

    Do you think that all F150 built in 2004 came out of the Ford factory with the same transmissions as well as shifters.
    I need to know the engine model and transmission model also.

    I could almost guarantee when you went in to get the chrome piece you didn't just get it by telling the parts dealer exactly what you have given us to work with.

    Ok I have the shifter diagram below and the explanation to remove and install the new shifter knob.




    Removal/Installation of the knob:

    1.
    Slide down the outer cover. - 5
    2. Slide the inner shroud down that locks the handle in place - 4
    3. Pull the button on the side of the handle out and slide the handle off the lever - 3
    4. Watch for the spring which is on top of the lever when you pull the handle off.
    5. To install the new handle/knob is the reverse of the above procedure.

    Hope this has helped you, let me know if you need more information.

    Thanks

    Jason

How to keep center wheel cap on 2004 f150 from falling off


Those are a tight fitting plastic snap in unit...
If they are falling out the CENTER CAPs need to be replaced. To be replaced properly on the vehicle... they need to be aligned... and snapped into place... The popular approach was to hit them on... if they didn't snap in...

HIT THEM HARDER... (wrong)

My ford f150 is getting fire and gas but wont start i replaced the module,pickup in the dist.,cap,button,new plugs fuelpump,filter any ideas


check to see it the timing chain broke or jumped,have checked to see if you were getting spark and fuel in the begining.if you had these before then you replaced some things without needing them,unless its been a while since a tune-up was done.to check the timing chain turn the engine over until the timing marks are aligned.the pointer across from the 0 mark on the timing cover.then pull the distributor cap noting were #1 plug terminal is and the rotor should be pointing at that spot.if the timing chain broke it will sound like there is no compression.

Ihave a 2002 F-150 and I cannot put it into gear. The gearshift seems to be stuck. Could this be an electrical problem since my electric windows and sunroof do not work either.


check to see that the brake lights work, if the brake ciricuit is inop the shfter will not come out of park, the brake light circuit power up a small solenoid under the dash that relaease the shifter.

Ford truck shifter locked in park


For the column shifter it is on the left hand side of the steering wheel column behind the knee panel.
For the console shifter it is under the cup holder, think it is still on the left side.

For either of them, the shift interlock solenoid has a white button on it, that you can press and it will release the gear shift lever.

This is for the 2004 New Body style truck, if you have a 2004 Heritage or Lightning, it is slightly different.

2004 F150 like turtle


Sounds like there is water trapped in the dizzy cap. Remove cap and dry out, give a quick spray off  WD40 and replace cap. While you are there pull of each HT lead and spray WD4O onto each contact and replace.
