  1. Trans clunking when down shifting

    Has anyone brought their truck into Ford to address the issue of clunking when down shifting? If so what did they do to fix the problem or were you told that 'that's normal'. My 2021 3.5 sometimes clunks when down shifting from 4th to 3rd badly enough to leave marks on a gravel road. I don't...
  2. Dome light not coming on

    Does anyone else other than myself have the dome light not come on when the door is opened? The light comes on with the overhead switches but not the door. 2021 XLT 302a
  3. Trickle charging a battery for extended down time

    I have an upcoming surgery this winter and I'll be house bound for about a month. I won't have access to my truck during this time because I have a detached garage. My question is this... Is it safe to use a trickle charger/battery maintainer to keep the battery charged up or can my truck go...
  4. Accessing this site

    Does anyone else have to prove that you're a 'human' to access this site? Every time I want to access this site I'm asked to identify same pictures to verify I'm not a robot. Why? Why?
  5. Key fob security

    This topic might have been discussed previously but I can't find a reference to it. Does anyone know if the remote start/lock and unlock key fob signal can be intercepted or copied by a hacker trying to steal my truck? If so, what can be done to prevent this?
  6. Tailgate lettering : raised or flat?

    Anyone have a preference between raised or flat tailgate lettering? Can you state why you chose one over the other and what is a good brand to buy from.
  7. Snow/ice build up on running boards

    I live in northern Minnesota and have a problem with snow accumulating on my F150 running boards making the doors sometimes hard to open. I also live on a gravel road and sometimes the snow has gravel and sand mixed in with it which will scratch the paint on the lower part of the doors. Does...
  8. Does anyone use Eco mode?

    I have tried using the 'Eco' mode on my truck and it feels like it lost about 350hp. Step on the gas and it feels like mush. Does anyone feel the same?
  9. Full synthetic vs synthetic blend oil

    The owners manual for my 2021 3.5 EB states a synthetic 'blend' oil should be used. My wifes 2020 Escape calls for the same type of oil. I use Mobil 1 full synthetic in both vehicles. Does anyone know if the use of a 'full' synthetic oil will void the warranty? I've used Mobil 1 for a lot of...
  10. 3.5 EB not an option?

    I was just looking at Fords build config. and noticed the 3.5 EcoBoost is only available on Lariat and above. XL and XLT is 3.3, 5.0 and 2.7. Why did Ford do that?
  11. F150gen14 = Great site

    This comment is for the administrator and or the creator of this site. Kudos to you for assembling a site that is very easy to navigate and has tons of daily info on the 14th generation of the F150.

  12. How long does it take to build an F150

    How many hours does it take from start to finish to build an F150? Start might be when the first parts hit the assembly line and finish might be when the truck is first started. My OCD mind would like to know.
  13. Green window sticker

    Do green window stickers indicate 'special order'? Would a dealer order be considered special order?
  14. Truck color on instrument screen

    My truck color is Lead Foot grey and my wife's Escape is Carbonized grey and on both vehicles when the instrument screen first comes on, both her car and also my truck shows grey as the color of the vehicle shown. I'm wondering if this a factory set color to match the vehicle's color or if all...
  15. Checking transmission fluid

    OK I'll start off by saying I'm old-school when it comes to checking fluid levels in my vehicles. I check levels often. My 2021 F150 has no trans dipstick and neither did my old 2014 Subaru or my current 2020 Escape Titanium. My previous truck (Silverado 2500HD 6.0 six speed) did have a...
  16. Actual build date

    My truck was dealer ordered in January 2021 and the 'build' date on the door pillar sticker shows September 2021. With all of the 'shortages' of various parts, is it possible my truck was built sometime after January (and delivered to a holding lot) but the sticker reflects the date the...
  17. Break-in period

    How long does it take for break-in on a 3.5 EcoBoost. I feel the need to stomp on it but don't want to until it's ready.
  18. B&O sound system

    I have a 2021 F150 XLT 302a with the standard sound system, not the B&O system. When I took delivery from the dealer he told me that the standard sound system is also B&O with 6 speakers and not 8. Is it possible that Ford has B&O make all of the sound systems for the trucks and charges $600...
  19. What is this?

    I finally got my F150 302a 3.5 a few days ago and found this cover in the glove box. Does anyone know where this is from on the truck? It's probably an insignificant part but I'd like to know where it came from anyway.
  20. F150 problems?

    OK I'm about to pull the trigger on a new 2021 F150 XLT 3.5 302a and I've been reading about all of the problems popping up on that truck. Problems such as trans shifting clunk, electrical glitches, fit and finish issues etc. Can anyone speak to these issues on the 2021 F150? I really don't...
