Question about 1990 Ford F150

1 Answer

I bought a used 1999 Ford F-150 Super Cab pickup a several years ago. The dealer didn't have the '99 owners manuel so they gave me the 2000 yr's manual. Well, I have been pulling a popup camper for years and wanted to upgrade to a ultra-lite trailer. My problem is towing. The truck is a 4.6L V8 automatic with 3.08 gears. The '00 manual stated that this set up is only good to tow up 2000 lbs. I checked Ford's web site and looked at their on line manual. For this same set up, the 1997-1999 listed 5600 lbs. The years 2000-2003 listed 2000 lbs. What happened? Was there a change or an engineering mistake? I need to know before I purchase a trailer. Thanks

All I can tell you, is I would not own any vehicle with a 3.08 Gear

You need at least a 3.90 just to have a nice driver or even consider towing

Lost keys to truck got new ignition with keys but still wont start 99 f150


The 1999 F-150 has a PATS ( Passive Anti Theft System ), where te keys need to be programmed to the truck.

For the owner to do this, you need 2 keys ( not 1 key and a clone of the same key ) or you need to have a higher end mechanic / dealer or a PATS programmer locksmith to program the new keys.

The truck basically thinks it is trying to be stolen, and the PATS system is stopping it.
