Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING ON MO HWY 150, I HEARD A LOUD POPPING NOISE COMING FROM THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. I IMMEDIATELY PULLED MY 2002 FORD F-150 KING RANCH 4WD, TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND TURNED OFF THE MOTOR. UPON OPENING THE HOOD I DISCOVERED THE #3 ENGINE CYLINDER SPARKPLUG WAS GONE! AFTER TOWING THE VEHICLE HOME I CONTACTED MY FORD DEALER TO HAVE THE MOTOR FIXED. THE REPAIR BILL WAS $865.00. I WENT ON THE WWW AND DISCOVERED THAT THE FORD MOTORS ARE NOTORIOUS FOR THIS PROBLEM. FURTHER, IF THE PLUG WOULD HAVE STRUCK THE FUEL LINE JUST ABOVE, A FIRE MIGHT HAVE ENGULFED THE VEHICLE. I FEEL THE FORD MOTOR COMPANY SHOULD RECALL ALL THE VEHICLES WITH THIS 5.4 MOTOR AND REPLACE ALL PARTS EFFECTED BY THIS PROBLEM. *TR

STARTING FROM A STOPLIGHT, I HEARD A SUDDEN POP AND SMELLED GAS. LOUD CLICKING OR POPPING NOISE CAUSED ME TO TURN AROUND AND HEAD STRAIGHT TO THE DEALER. THEY SAID A SPARK PLUG BLEW OUT, DAMAGING THE COIL. INITIAL ESTIMATE OF $500 GREW TO $3600 AS THEY SAID THEN THAT THE HEAD WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACED DUE TO DAMAGE THERE AS WELL. RESEARCHING THIS PROBLEM, IT APPEARS THAT THERE ARE QUITE A FEW (MANY MANY MANY) FORD OWNERS WITH THIS PROBLEM! WHY IS THERE NO RECALL? IMMEDIATE SAFETY OR NOT, THIS IS AN OBVIOUS DEFECT. *TR

Summary of Complaint

DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD ABOUT 55 MPH AND HEARD A TERRIBLE SOUND COME FROM THE ENGINE. IT SOUNDED LIKE A PISTON DISCONECTED FROM THE CONNECTING ROD. I HAD THE VEHICLE TOWED TO THE NEAREST DEALER. THEIR DIAGNOSIS IS THAT THE #3 SPARKPLUG LOOSEND UP AND DAMAGED THE PLUG HOLE. THE SAID THAT THE HEAD NEEDED TO BE REPLACED AND THE BIIL WOULD RANGE FROM $3500-4500. I DID NOT HAVE THE MONEY TO GET THE VEHICLE REPAIRED SO THE VEHICLE SAT AT THE DEALER FOR 5 MONTHS. WHEN I CALLED THE DEALER THEY SAID THERE WAS A REPAIR THAT COULD BE DONE BUT IT WASN'T RECOMENDED BY FORD. THE REPAIR WAS TO REMOVE THE HEAD AND SLEAVE THE BLOWN OUT SPARK PLUG HOLE. I HAD THEM REPAIR IT THIS WAY. THE COST TO ME WAS $1796.00 AND THERE WAS NO WARANTY BECAUSE IT WAS NOT A FORD RECOMENDED REPAIR. MY CONCERN IS THAT THIS SEEMS TO BE A FAIRLY COMMON PROBLEM AND COULD HAPPEN AGAIN AT GREAT EXPENSE TO THE CONSUMER. NOT ONLY IS THERE GREAT EXPENSE BUT, IF THIS WERE TO HAPPEN IN HEAVY TRAFFIC IT COULD CAUSE A MAJOR ACCIDENT.*AK

Summary of Complaint

SUA sudden unwanted acceleration, at least 4 times. No floor mats. 1st time truck surged back and forth a little then accelerated full throttle. I went to neutral. I kicked gas pedal although gas peddle was not depressed. It stopped. I was shook up but in control. I decided to remove throttle body and clean extensively. Replaced TB Sensor w/ genuine Ford part and replaced throttle valve on top. Hoped for the best. Still have the problem. 2002 F 150 XL 4.2 purchased new. I still have truck because its been such a great truck, I never felt like it was time to move on. It runs like new and I've taken care of it. I am writing this info for safety and only safety. I've been researching this issue. trying to solve problem. I took truck to qualified shop where mechanic is known to me and he was a little stumped. No codes, no check engine light. Can't solve the puzzle? So, I'm on top of the possibility of it happening. I really don't go anywhere w/ truck, to the store and back pretty much. So when its happens, I'm fast to go to neutral. I also feel like if I wanted to show somebody what I'm talking about, all they have to do is get in. I'm almost positive if I punch the gas peddle just a little, say to pass a slow driver, it'll go like hell. I have started thinking about my next truck. But no way I'm trading or selling this truck and passing the problem to someone else. So, I'm dealing with it and really hope my experience helps. I've read the story's on line. Because I've lived it, I can tell you its a bit terrifying. That's my story Thank You Jim Winn

Summary of Complaint

When it rains the rain is somehow getting into the fuse box under the steering column and causing it to drain the battery, short out some of the instrument cluster, make noise, blow fuses, and rust up. It is a fire hazard and it puts all inside the truck in danger. I have not yet had a fire but if I keep the truck as is it will eventually.
