  1. Anyone planning to try E85 in the 2024 5.0?

    Although ford officially doesn't claim to support E85 on the 5.0 anymore, has anyone put this theory to the test? AFAIK nothing has changed powertrain wise. Tuner's feel free to chime in here....
  2. Power Steering Loss

    This happened to me once at the end of a drive luckily in the parking lot. Got a "Power Steering Loss. Please Tow to Dealer" message in the dash. Immediately restarted the truck like any good ole engineer and everything has been ok since. This forscan code showed up though... Anyone know if...
  3. I hate to be the chome-dress-up-guy but this looks great

    I got my 2022 antimatter blue F-150 with the chome package since it had the features I wanted for a great deal. In another life I would have gotten a white sport model, but this thing still rocks. One thing that annoyed me a little was how out of place the black plastic mirror caps looked on...
  4. Corwin Ford of Reno >>> Dealer Hall of Shame

    My parents brought their 2021 F150 in to get a simple oil change and get Blue Cruise installed after Ford re-opened the dealer installation campaign (it's a 2021 with Prep package that never received it). This was prompted by an email from Ford saying that dealers were again installing Blue...
  5. Is My Axle Boot Leaking?

    I was my truck and noticed a little bit of leakage near my driver side front wheel. Is this normal for 5k miles for the suspension experts out there?
  6. 5.0 Cold Start Bogging

    Does anyone experience their 5.0 after a cold start, when slowly accelerating up a slight incline (~5-10 mph), the engine starts to make a really deep, booming (almost buffeting) tone. It goes away after a few minutes and I can avoid it by bringing revs up manually or being really light on the...
  7. I Have a Not-Truck-Conventional Idea for the F-150

    Ford should build a Hybrid F-150 with eAWD - Small FWD Atkinson Cycle NA Motor with eCVT & a Large RWD electric motor I've owned Powerboost and now a 2022 Escape Hybrid (non phev) and here are some of my reasons: - The escape powertrain IMO is the most reliable powertrain Ford makes; Just look...
  8. Amp question for experienced

    If loudness isnt my end goal (never turn up past half on the 7 speaker stock stereo), how important is an amplifer? All I want is really good clarity and bass that is well defined but not window rattling. Would feeding a flat signal to high quality replacement speakers (that work well without...
  9. Powerboost probably slower than Ecoboost

    Not trying to ruffle feathers, but C&D tested these 2 trucks: F-150 Tremor Ecoboost with 612lbs of options vs a base 145" 4x4 ecoboost (5562 vs 4950lbs). On heavier 33" off road tires. F-150 Powerboost with 274 lbs of options vs a base 145" 4x4 Powerboost (5794 vs 5520lbs). On lighter 32"...
  10. New 5.0

    Has anyone done heavy towing over lots of miles with their 5.0? Trying to gauge how well this motor takes a beating. Rentals tend to live harder lives. Cheers.
  11. Dull Clunking Leaf Springs

    Anyone have noise coming from leaf springs on their F150? Specifically a dull "tap on empty plastic gas can" type thunk, when going over bumps and turning on inclines at low speeds. I do think it's correlated to grime/junk building up between the springs. Just a little embarrassing to have a...
  12. Clanking/rattling when revving or starting engine

    Has anyone else had this rattling sound on their F150? 5K miles powerboost built on 4/22. I really hope this is just a loose heat shield/engine mount, and not anything engine related.
  13. Disabling PB Fake Engine Noise

    Fyi, I did it with Forscan and it actually makes the electric -> gas + electric transition seem alot smoother because I can barely hear it! If anyone is curious this is the configuration: ACM 727-01-01 xxxx xxxx 0x
  14. High Pitched Rattle/Squeak in Steering Wheel

    I've had an intermittent issue where a very slight high pitched squeak/rattle comes from the steering wheel when cruising over pavement. It's comes and goes based on the road surface and maybe temperature. Only small bumps and vibrations seem to affect it, not large bumps. I have a Lariat built...
  15. AZXD Plan Question

    Hi all, I know someone who recently received an A plan PIN from her family member. Unfortunately they won't need a car until next April (around the time the PIN expires). My question is - Can the still valid PIN be locked in at the time of order or does physical delivery need to take place...

  17. Question On Mismatched Tire

    Friend had a damaged tire and dropped the truck off at the the dealer to get it replaced. The dealer replaced the tire with a different model of the Hankook Dynapro AT2 (aftermarket version) than the OEM tire it replaced. Now there are 3 OEM style and 1 aftermarket The OEM tire (we now have 3...
  18. F150 3.5 Ecoboost Tested by Motortrend [WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    https://www.motortrend.com/reviews/2021-ford-f150-vs-chevrolet-silverado-ram-1500-pickup-truck-comparison-test-review Notice the 3.5 eco has the same 0-60 time as the (almost exactly optioned) powerboost they tested here -...
  19. Hellwig 7743 Rear Sway Bar Installed

    Installed it on a Platinum Powerboost 4x4 shortbed. Fits, although on the axle, one U bolt is slightly angled because of some new wiring on the rear axle. No noises and definitely improves handling. The cornering ability is kind of stupid now for a 6000lb body on frame pickup with the stiffest...
  20. 2021 Turning Diameter

    Does anyone feel it is worse on the 21s? Listed as the same per ford's online spec. On a 21 Platinum, noticed it feels worse than my a prev gen truck, maybe because the 33" tires that come with the 20" wheels on the 21, as opposed to the 32" tires that come with the 18" wheels and most...
