    I liked the explanation and help you gave on the scanner data diagnosing an issue with this type of data. I posted a question in the 2004-2008 F150 forum with a similar issue and would definitely like to get your take on the problem, if you're willing to assist me. I'd sure appreciate it. (SLV ford guy)

    Hi there, not sure if you are still around the forum or not. I just finished reading your differential post and had a quick question.
    I have an opportunity to swap my 05 3.55 differential with an 04 3.73 LS differential. Is this a direct swap? Do you suggest bearing changes or simply remove and replace? Any guidance here is appreciated. And thanks for all of your input to the forum.

    Can you give me some more information about testing the VCT solenoids by grounding a wire?

    My brother has a 2004 F150 4.6. He's getting the following codes. P0300, P0304, P0305, P0397, P0316, P0354

    Any idea what is causing all of the misfires?

    Thank you,

    I'm not new to the forum but find all the answers to my problems on here. You posted on a post that is something that I am dealing with. I have a 2005 F150 4.6 and have the raw gas smell & rough idle, 50k miles and just purchased it. I called the Ford Dealership and they said there are no recalls but I have seen one for the 5.4 V8 about the injector sticking open.

    It sounds like the injector is stuck on my truck causing the raw gas smell and maybe the rough idle. Let me know what you think and I am also going to clean out the intake because my 99 F150 was prone to clogging and causing the code to come up for the EGR. Seems Fords motors are prone to build up and causing problems.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Jason

    I spray whatever I got on hand down in the plug wells. PB Blaster, carb cleaner, WD40, Kroil, anything to get in there and soften the deposits up a bit. I haven't tried it with an air powered impact gun, I'd be worried that it may have a bit too much umph for the job. Set it on about half power and give it a try on one of the front cylinders, an easy one to get to in case it breaks.

    Looking to change my spark plugs on my 2004 F150. Should I use pbblaster or carb cleaner? Could I use a snap on 3/8 impact gun - air?

    Yeah, I break the plugs loose about a 1/4 turn, spray carb cleaner into the plug wells and let it sit (on a lukewarm engine, BTW), then give 'em hell with a cordless 3/8 impact gun. Haven't broken one since.

    I was reading in this thread https://www.f150online.com/forums/20...ark-plugs.html and Bluejay suggest I contact you. I am planning on a plug change soon and was interested on finding out more about using an impact wrench instead of the TSB. Have you had much success with that and is there any technique to it? Thanks!

    Quintin - I read the thread on the Xenon-HID upgrade with an H13 bulb (me: 2005 stock F150). However, the instructions I got from A Line Electronics are pathetic - and I did not fully understand the responses in this thread. Seems obvious that the high beam is now abandoned. On the A Line unit, though, there is a black wire and a red wire with narrow spade terminals on the end. I don't understand and A Line has not responded...black goes to ground and red to the low beam? The other connectors are obvious (to the ballast module for example). There is no visible igniter - so I assume it's integrated - though I do not see it in the cutaway view of the ballast housing.
