Question about 2004 Ford F150

1 Answer

Between 60 & 80 kph I feel & hear a noise in the rear of my 2004 f150. It sounds like running over the wake up corrigations they install on the side of highways. I looked under the truck at the rear of the driveshaft and noticed a small leak where it goes into the differential. Could this be my problem?

There was a recall on the 2004. they had to install a damper for the vibration. if yours has one it would be right above the right rear tire hanging off the frame its shaped like a ball. its about the size of a basketball maybe. just take it to a dealer it should be free to fix

I have a 2007 Isuzu that makes a rumbling sound between 60 and 80 kph the wheel bearings have been replaced 3 times in 8 months but the noise is still there

If your car is running fine and only making a noise when you are traveling at high speed it may be wind related. Check inside your front wheel wells behind the tires... There should be a rubber sheet between there and the engine compartment. It's designed to protect components on your engine from rain water & road debris etc. Make sure it's hanging down straight and not caught up on anything or torn. If that's not it, look around in your engine compartment and undercarriage for anything loose that would flap around in the wind (i.e. a mechanic's rag, tool or something got stuck you ran over). If you don't see anything out of the norm you can try a blower directed at your car to mimic wind conditions at 60 mph. The noise may present itself to a degree. It might be a long shot but worth a try. Good luck with you mystery noise. Let us know how it turns out.

Hear a clicking noise from rear end of 2004 f 150 when starting off but go's away. Is it a bad u joint?

Could very well be. Remove the drive shaft and feel the motion of the u-joints. Then you will know for sure.

Feels like chatter in rear end when accelerating 2004 f150 4x4

Check the "U-Joints" on the drive shaft and or rear wheel/axle bearings.
You MAY need a little help as the wheel(s) needs to be of the ground to check axle bearing. Grasp top and bottom of the tire and wobble it in and out.

I have shuttering vibation when driving at 60 to 75 mph its a 2004 F150 Ford

There is a recall per my dealership. I have a 2004 F150 that was just doing the same thing this past week. I changed all four tires, alignment, etc. with no results. Finally found out that there is a recall for the emergency brake cable system. Even if the brakes were not on it would vibrate and would seem like I had a flat tire. My truck is in the shop today being fixed and I will know more when I pick it up if there is any additional problems as a result of this. So far, I need to pay to have new rear breaks. Good luck!
