There will be a code in memory which will indicate the problem. From you saying it flashes at cruise it is most likely your torque converter is not locking up as it should.

If your low beams work it's not the multi-function switch located on your steering column (two bolts and a plug). If you unplug the abs sensor on the rear differential and the ABS stays on and your blinkers work and you don't blow fuses could be the sensor. However, if this is not it you may have a ground problem (micro-friction). Usually these two systems are not connected and these may be completely different issues.
Possible Scenario: aftermarket stereo installed incorrectly.
Scenario Two: both of these sytems have bare wires and touch every so often causing your grounding problem. (There is a fuse-vibration testing technique that can be used to find the bare-wire(s))
Try to fix the blinker problem first you may find the ABS problem along the way (common wires of Blinker/ABS bundled together.
Trace and inspect.

Hope this helps--

Think it's on top of the transmission near the rear. Real pain to reach and service.

I drove truck for 30 years, and I used the trans fluid in diesel fuel to help keep injectors clean! Just be sure not to use too much! I would only use a 1/4 of a quart per tank full.

Usually need a 1/2" drive placed into tensioner pulley and ease it back till you can remove the belt off it. Then the belt will slide out so you don't have to remove anything. Follow the reverse order to put back on and follow the diagram under hood usually in plain view if you forget. It can be somewhat a puzzle depending on how many pulleys it needs to wrap around... You will not need to remove anything if you do it right. Also buy the 3 year plus one since the other needs to be replaced yearly...

You just gotta face it: your engine is munched.


Nothing but nothing will totally ruin an engine faster, or more thoroughly, than overheating. And the damage that is done it not the kind that can usually be repaired. Every component of the engine is likely ruined, every single internal part.

If you would have turned the engine IMMEDIATELY off, and coasted to the side of the road, you might not be in this position. But since you ran it until it started pounding ("pinging" you called it), you can rest assured that it will likely never run again.

I would start by checking you switch for the tanks to make sure it is working right and if the front tanks fuel pump does not work after you check the switch I would get a 12 volt electrical test light and see if your getting power to the front fuel pump if your getting power to it I would say you have a bad pump . But some times the pump will run but the diaphragm gets weak in them.

Sounds like a failing or dirty switch. I had a car that did that and it turned out that the wiring harness connection to the switch housing had worked loose making a partial connection.

1997 Ford F250... | Answered on Mar 05, 2015
