  1. Pretty sure I need a new transmission after new shuddering issue

    I pretty much baby my truck, but have always had rough shifting in the lower gears when cold. I tried to fix this with a reset, which seemed to get rid of the worst jolts, but it still isnt good at all. Its usually 3-1 and 4-3 downshifts, but can pretty much be any gear relationship up or...
  2. Alarm Missing?

    I'm seeing some posts about the alarms going off and people showing alarm security settings both on the infotainment and in the app. I checked out my truck (XLT 302a) yesterday and didn't see anything alarm related in the vehicle settings on the infotainment. I checked out the app today and the...
  3. Transmission Backlog

    Im still experiencing some very hard 4th to 3rd downshifts and weird torque converter behavior after 2 table resets. I went to the quicklane at the dealership to see if fluid was low and they couldn't do it because they didn't have a master tech available. The regular dealership shop wanted to...
  4. Ford Fn Ranger-Who is this competing with?

    Looks like these are getting into hands finally. I was super excited because my wife is looking into these to replace her Cx30 which has been flawless. I like the looks, but would put it just behind the canyon for the segment. What I can't understand is the fresh EPA numbers. 1 less mpg than...
  5. 3rd Gear TC Lockup Behavior?

    Okay so my 2022 2.7 has always done this and last week's battery disconnect reset didn't change it. When accelerating slowly, the TC lockup seems to hesitate or "bounce" kinda like a manual. The truck surges when it happens. It happens at all temperatures. It doesn't happen when accelerating...
  6. Rental Ram Limited

    Aight so I just put 300 hard miles on a new Ram Limited, which truly is a very highly specd trim. The mileage is 26k. Good: 0 rattles ect smoother and quieter trans than the 10r80 the entire drivetrain is overall better from an NVH perspective good power, but much less low end grunt than the...
  7. Anyone disassemble a grinding EIWE?

    Hi guys, Anyone break down one of these sticking EIWEs? I'm trying to understand how bad the damage gets and around what mileage the failure was observed. Id imagine the grinding is leaving metal shavings at a minimum. Are they even able to be disassembled? Is there a way to check, clean, and...
  8. Black smoke on startup?

    Hey guys, I took my 2.7 120 miles Friday through the mountains to go ski, parked it until Sunday (today), started it in 13 degrees using the app (remote start on keyfob doesn't do anything) and noticed black smoke for the first 10 seconds or so, then the relatively normal white. I tried to...
  9. Kinda off topic, but wet belt related. Ford recalling the focus engines with wet belts

    Pretty interesting write up blaming RTV breaking loose and damaging the tensioner as a primary reason for belt failure. Interesting to note it looks like they're replacing the belts with a revised material...
  10. Front wheel rubbing the fiber after recall?

    Hey guys, I had a headlight recall done and didn't notice immediately, but I think they might have messed up the fiber barrier that goes in the right side wheel well just behind the bumper. I only noticed it because I'm definitely getting tire rub when at lock, which didn't happen before I don't...
  11. Door trim removal?

    Hi guys. Anyone know how to remove the decorative plastic panels on the doors? I bought some better looking replacements for my xlt that have some adhesive strips on the back. I tried using a plastic pry tool to remove the existing panels, but didn't want to break my factory ones trying to...
  12. Finally got my truck back and it has updated! Feedback mechanism!

    I just picked up my truck for the last and final round of hail repair. I noticed the backup warning sound is different. Idk what else is really new, BUT I noticed there's now the best feature in any ford Ive ever seen HANDS DOWN. A feedback mechanism! There is now a way to record and send a 45...
  13. Highest mileage 2.7?

    How many miles on your 2.7 and what have you had to replace?
  14. Finally found some real world oil pump belt feedback

    Skip to the 40min mark where I Do Cars pulls the oil pump belt at 96k off a 2018. Just full of cracks😭
  15. Anyone use additives? First shift of the day is always rough 1-3rd

    I'm slowing hammering out the small issues and have come around to this slight trans issue. For background, I park on a 4 degree slop with the front of the truck pointed downwards. Haven't really tried flipping it around, but 4 degrees really ain't much to me. The first shift of the day...
  16. Losing my mind over driveline vibration

    I've had this slight driveline vibration between 50-60mph for a little while now after removing the flat rear blocks and tried a few things. I did confirm problem is much reduced with blocks in, but the pinion angle is the same! I don't have an inclinometer, but the angles seem to match. I...
  17. Rented a 5.0, some interesting notables

    Ended up getting upgraded to a ccsb v8 2wd with 4k miles. First I want to start by saying the 5.0 is the best engine. Having experience with the 3.5 and 2.7, ain't close. The responsiveness is great and the four cyl shift is great. Gas mileage was actually very good and only a hair lower than...
  18. This F150 forum's community assets 👏

    I just wanted to say you guys are hands down the best truck community out there. I was checking out the forums for Tacoma, Canyons, and Rangers as I search for a midsize. Most of those guys are like kittens and laser pointers. This forum (and the equivalent bronco forum) has such an amazing...
  19. DRL Recall Failed- What to Look At?

    So I had the DRL recall done about 2 months ago. I noticed the truck still seemed to flicker when it came back, but I couldn't recreate the issue. It's been in the shop 3 weeks for unrelated hail repair, so I havent had a ton of time to mess around. Then I unlocked the truck while walking...
  20. Possible to unlock all doors when driver door opens?

    Is it possible to use forscan to change how the locks operate? I usually have my kid in the back. I get out of the front door and often find the backdoor still locked, which is very different from what I'm used to with the SCAB suicide doors. Any way to change this so I don't have to reach for...
