Jan 12, 2000

Brake Line Freezing Due To Exhaust Pipe Being In Front Of Wheels (alongside Brakeline). I Bought A 97 f-150 7 Months Ago. I Recently Noticed That It’s Increasingly Difficult To Get Out Of My Driveway Some Days, The Truck Smells Terrible (like Something Burnt) & My Gas Mileage Is Awful. I Have Been Releasing The Brake, The Light Is Off, The Pedal Is Up, But The Brake Apparently Is Still On. The Tires & Rims Are Icing Up, The Brake Shoes On That Side Are Crumbling. This Causes Poor Braking Conditions. I Called The Dealership, I Had Been Told To Watch For This Problem, & Had Wanted It Fixed. ( I Would Rather Not Find Out How Bad This Is By Something Or Someone. ) In Fact, That Is The Reason That I Was Given When I Was Told That ford Would Fix It, Until They Saw The Milage On The Vehicle, Then They Told Me, Nope We Wont Fix It, Youll Have To Pay Us $700 (cdn) As A “good Will Gesture” From ford. (this Seems A Little Steep!) & Also They Thought I Should Bring The Truck In So They Can Make Sure That Theres No Damage To The Wheels Or Brakes. If The Brakes Can Freeze On,… What Stops Them From Freezing When They Are Not On?? I’m Told There Is A Great Deal Of Hydraulic Pressure That Stops This From Being An Issue, But The System Is Only As Good As It Is Weakest Part, & When Using “brute Force” To Break Them Free, I Would Think Something Somewhere Has Got To Give. If There Were Safety Concerns That Were The Reason That ford Was Making The Modifications Whilst The Vehicle Was Still Under Its Original Warranty, I Should Think These Safety Concerns Do Not Go Away Once The Truck Is Not On Warranty. I Would Think That This Would Be A Recall Situation, Not Just A Bulletin. They Have Admitted That It Is A Problem, & Were Even Fixing It If It Was Under The Original Warranty, But I Believe That This Problem Goes Much Further, & ford Should Be Liable For The Repairs, Since It Is A Flaw In The Design Of The Vehicle. I Have Contacted ford Canada, & Got No Result. *ak

This Pickup Truck Does Not Brake Properly. The Brake Pedal Must Be Depressed Very Hard And Even Then, The Braking Time And Distance Is Very Poor. This Problem Is Even Worse And More Dangerous When Hauling A Boat Or Other Trailor. On Numerous Occasions I Have Almost Hit Someone And Have Ran Through Stop Signs Because Of The Poor Braking. I Don’t Believe That The Anti-lock Brakes Work At All. I Recently Had My Brake Pads Replaced And The Dealer Told Me That He Has Seen Similar Problems, However, When The Rotors Are Replaced The Braking Is Much Better. The Specs. On The Original Rotors Are Different Than The Replacements. I Believe That The Original Rotors Are Not The Correct Thickness And Therefore The Braking Is Very Poor. I Have To Believe That ford F150s With These Braking Problems Are Getting Into Accidents, Some Resulting In Injury And Death. Something Needs To Be Done Now. I Don’t Trust That ford Would Volunteer This Information And Have A Voluntary Recall. Please Advise. *ak

I Had Experienced A Loss Of Brakes On Three Or Four Different Occasions. I Brought Vehicle To Manufactures service Represenative. I Explained I Loss My Brakes For A Short Momment And Then They Return. With The Most Recent Occurance The Abs Light Came On. This Did Not Happen In Previous Incidences. They Checked The Abs System Found No Errors, They Checked The Brakes No Problems. They Couldn’t Find Anything, I Had To Speek With The service Tech Directly Giving More Of A Detail Of What Happens. They Came Back And Found The Master Brake Cylinder Was Leaking Causing The Intermittent (extremely Random) Failure. They Charged Me For The Repair (no Problem). I Called ford Motor Direct And Asked To Be Refunded My Repair Cost Because I Did’nt Think A Master Brake Cyclinder Should Be Failing @ 38k. They Were Very Professional And Had No Objections, They Agreed Totally (they Paid Me For The Repair). A Week Later, This Morning I Almost Crashed Into A Semi. The End Of My Road Has A Stop Sign Conecting To A Major Highway. When I Proceeded To Use My Brakes To Stop The Vehicle Did Not Stop! The Brake Problem Was Back. This Incident Was The Worst Of The Brake Failures, I Literally Almost Got Crushed By The Semidid. I Called The Manufactures service Rep. They Told Me They Thought They Had The Fix With Master Cycliner, Obviously It Was Not The Fix. I Asked What They Thought It Could Be They Had No Clue! I Have An Appointment This Monday With The Shop To See If They Can Find The Cause One More Time. I Stress, This Problem Is Extremely Dangerous. When One Losses His Brakes You Loss Total Control. I Hope This Information Can Help Save A Life Some Where. Thank You

Brake Pedal Is Very Inconsistant, And Pedal Will Go Almost To The Floor, Also The Brake Pedal Never Feels Like A Good Pedal.

After Speaking With ford‘s Cutomer service They Informed Me That If I Felt Safety Was A Problem To Take It Back The The Dealer. No Success Again, I Then Had A Brake Safety Inspection Completed At A Local Maintence Facility And They Could Not Find Anything That Appeared Wrong However Agreed That The Brakes Were Insufficient For Safe Stopping. I Then Wrote ford Customer service Informing Them Of My Complete Dissatisfaction In The Brakes And Asked For Any Options That May Be Available To Fix The Problem And Have Not Received A Response As Of 10 Months Later.

This Vehicle Has Had A Chronic Brake Problem. The Previous Owner Traded The Vehicle In Due To Brakes That Would Not Work Properly And Sunny King ford Would Not Repair.

Now, While Driving Down Us Hwy 280 At About 60 Mph The 4.2l 6 Cylinder Engine, With Only 68,000 Miles On It, Threw The #6 Rod, Blowing Up The Engine. Sunny King fordservice Department Later Tells Me They Have No Idea Why It Happened, It Just Does Sometimes.

I Had Purchased This Truck On Dec 19, 2002. The Next Day I Drove It To Tampa Fl. While On The Way There And While In Tampa I Had A Few Brake Failures. When I Was Coming To A Stop The Pedal Seemed To Get Soft, Then They Would Get Really Hard And Start Pulsating And The Vehicle Would Not Stop. I Would Have To Let Off The Brakes, And Try Again. I Was Lucky That It Was Early In The Morning And Most Of The Time I Was Not In A Lot Of Traffic, I Was Able To Stop The Vehicle. On Dec 29,02. I Took The Vehicle To The ford Dealership Where I Purchased It, They Looked At It And Said They Could Not Find Anything Wrong With The Brakes. In January It Must Have Happened To Me About A 12 Times, All With The Same Effects. In Feb 03, I Took It Back In And They Said They Could Not Find Anything Wrong. A Couple Of Days Later The Problem Was Back Again Now Happening More Frequently, Now March And The Problem Has Happen To Me Just About Every Week At Least 4 To 5 Times A Week. On The Morning Of Mar 28 03, I Was Taking My Child To Day Care While Coming To A Stop At A Light. I Could Not Stop The Truck, I Let Off The Brakes About 2 More Times, Then I Finally Just Applied The Brakes As Hard As I Could And Got It To Stop A Few Inches From The Car That Was Stopped In Front Of Me At That Point I Contacted The Dealership, They Said Bring It In. I Dropped It Off The Same Day. When I Called Them The Following Week On April 1 2003. They Could Not Find Anything Wrong With It, But They Were Going To Replace The Brake Booster And Master Cylinder And A Check Valve. They Told Me That With All The Information That I Had Given Them And From What Other Mechanics Said It Would Have To Be The Three Components They Replaced. That Night My Truck Was Ready. I Was Very Confident That The Repairs Would Fix The Problem But I Was Wrong On Apr 06 03. While Out And About And Coming Home I Applied The Brakes The Truck Then Seem To Slow Down, Then The Brakes Got Hard Again And Started Pulsating At The Bottom. *jb

My Front Passenger Side Brakes Lock Up While Driving My fordf-150. This Has Happened Twice. The First Time It Happened The Mechanic Told Me My Brake Lines Were Twisted. The Second Time Which Occurred 1-1/2 Years Later, The Mechanic Told Me That It Could Possible Be A Valve Or A Cylinder Problem Which Doesn’t Allow Fluid To The Brakes. This Is Very Dangerous. My Wheel Gets Extremely Hot And So Does My Tire. The Vehicle Pulls Extremely Hard To The Right And Smokes Emerges From The Wheel. I Am Afraid That My Tire Could Pop If This Occurs Again. I Consider This To Be A Very Serious Problem And I Will Not Drive My Truck Until I Get Some Explanation From ford On This Problem. The Second Time This Happened Was 5/25/2003. It Occurred While Driving Down The Freeway At 65 Mph. Very Unsafe… Can You Help Me? *nlm
