I had one problem after another with my truck. Long story short, I ended up getting a brand new motor installed. That made all the problems go away! After having the new motor in for less than 2...

That's where I thought it was. Has 2 wires coming out of it. I unplugged it and then plugged it back in and reset the engine light. My engine oil temp has remained stable and not jumping all around...

Where is the Engine Oil Temperature Sensor located?

I have a 2004 f150 5.4 motor. Just got the code P0198 "Temperature(EOT)sensor circuit high". I called the Ford Dealer and the only part they could find under this was the Temperature sensor which I'm...

Yes, if it's the sensor that's on the side towards the bottom of the oil pan that's the one I checked. Everything looks good. Now the truck is running poorly, hesitating big time. Could the sensor...

On another note, I had my brakes checked...

Brand New Motor and engine light on already!

So to make a long story short, I had to have my old 2004 5.4 Triton motor with 154k replaced a couple weeks ago. I've only owned the truck for not quite a year and had many issues but you can find...

Damn, that's a great deal, is your mechanic a friend? I live in Des Moines, IA which isn't too far from Minnesota. Did he do the phasers and timing belt, all the works? Hell, it'd be worth a drive up...

Wow, that was in your oil pan! So was it worth it having all the timing and phasers redone? Is your truck quieter now? I've been debating on having it done since I've owned the truck but I have 151K...

So how long did that take you to do all that? Did it make a noticeable difference in noise when you started it up? Mine sounds like s*** every time I start it but is fine after it warms up. No...

Oil Pump Screen?

So I was reading about dry starts on here where the motor has a pretty loud ticking and then it goes away when warmed up. Mine is 2004 5.4. I'm ruling out exhaust manifolds and phasers because I've...

hmmm, well that is probably not the issue then for my truck. I unplugged the coil over suspected cylinder #6 and there was no change in idle. That tells me the plug or coil is bad. Likely a loose...

Yeah, I really think it's the manifold exhaust leak. I called a muffler shop in town and they said 2004 f150's they won't touch. No room to get to the bolts and way too much labor. So I found a shop...

The noise(ticking)is pretty much always there, cold or warmed up. It's gotten worse in the last month. Before it seemed it wasn't bad once it warmed up. Now it ticks constantly when I'm driving. At...

So I took a video of the sound that now I'm thinking may be more of an exhaust leak. This has the typical phaser sound which I'm used to by now. But when I accelerate you can hear the pronounced...
