  • Common Problems with the Ford F150 Pickup 26 February 2013

    The Ford F-150 is the most popular and the primary model of Ford's series of full-size pickup trucks, the F-series. It has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States for more than thirty years because of its functionality and quality. But being the top-selling vehicle for more than three decades doesn't mean it is the perfect vehicle in the market. In fact, consumers have encountered a few problems with the famous Ford F150 pickup truck.


    Airbags

    In 2011, Ford Motor Co. and the U.S. safety regulators have recalled the Ford F150 pickup truck for a problem with the airbag deployment. The airbags in the recalled vehicles may deploy unexpectedly due to short circuit and this problem may cause injuries to drivers and even lead to accidents. Ford and U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that the short circuit in the airbag wire in the steering wheel was caused by a mistake in the assembly of the vehicles. According to the NHTSA, the recall involved almost 1.33 million F-150 pickup trucks from the 2004 to 2006 model years.


    Fuel straps

    Also in 2011, the Ford F150 pickup truck was one of the 1 million trucks that Ford has recalled for having defective fuel metal straps. These are the straps that hold the fuel tank to the vehicle to prevent it from moving out of its place and falling. The straps tend to develop corrosion when exposed to the de-iccing chemicals that are used on roads in cold weather. This problem with corroded straps may lead to fire incidents and injuries. The recall has affected approximately 1.1 million pickup trucks including the 1997 to 2004 Ford F150 models.


    Engine and engine cooling

    Some consumers have also experienced problems with the Ford 150's engine and engine cooling. The hydro-carbon paper attached inside the airbox lid of the 2007 to 2008 models of Ford F150 may fall off in the middle of operation. Aside from a decrease in performance, this problem may also cause the malfunction indicator lamp to illuminate and confuse the driver. In worse cases, this failure may also cause the vehicle to stall during operation and lead to an accident.
