The AdvanceTrac system counteracts oversteering and understeering by reducing power and/or applying brakes to specific wheels. This is done by the use of electronic sensors that communicate with the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) regarding steering performance and stability in adverse weather conditions. The are several components that are necessary for the AdvanceTrac system to work properly.
Anti-Lock Brake System-When/if the brakes lock up, this may cause a loss of control and the vehicle may slide. The anti-lock brake system prevents this from happening by preventing the brakes from locking up, as well as preventing oversteering and/or understeering when the vehicle starts to slide.
Traction Control System-The traction control system works by reducing engine speed and determining which wheel to apply brake pressure to in order to prevent the vehicle from sliding.
Electronic Sensors-The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) receives information from electronic sensors regarding the rotational speed of each wheel, the horizontal motion of the vehicle, and the vertical motion of the vehicle.
If the "service AdvanceTrac" warning indicator light comes on in the dashboard, this could be an indication of several issues.
  • A faulty wheel-speed sensor
  • A faulty steering-angle sensor
  • A faulty rotational-speed sensor
  • An issue with the steering rack
  • Something that is lodged in one of the wheels
  • The AdvanceTrac system needs to be reprogrammed

no, you must remove the hood and depending on what you have as a suspension real high up or normal height an engine crane/ or overhead hoist and you might have to remove the radiator support and it would be easier to remove the transmission with it so you can easily mate them together on the ground but you can support the trans and mate up on installation of the motor with it still in the truck

the inertia switch is a safety feature if you are involved in a accident it shuts of the fuel at the pump and you should not try to disconnect it nor can I tell you how to do it you will be liable for your actions if discovered after an accident/ what is the problem here ? and what have you done already? no power to fuel pump?(check fuses and wiring)and inertia switch wiring if you are blowing fuses?// fuel pump can be locked up blowing fuses, there is a fuel injection relay, a fuel pressure regulator, a fuel pump circuit open relay, and a fuel tank selector switch, and of course the inertia switch, if you tell me what's wrong I can get you to the results you need otherwise go to rock and look up your truck and you will see the parts in Pictures so you know what to look for, also if you have a u pull it yard or a regular junk yard you can get this stuff pretty cheap, but new is always better and guaranteed yard parts are risky post back if you want to with progress or problems your having good luck Stephen

To replace slave cylinder transmission will have to be remove, not bad idea to replace clutch assembly once your in there if it has not being done.

Need to make sure that you have used the correct bulb for replacement. If so, you need to verify that you have power and ground at the socket in question with a voltmeter or test light.

Sounds like stuck floats to me. Unless they are actual sensors. In that case they are not reading correctly. And therefore should be replaced. Unfortunately either way I think you are going to have to pull the tanks. Not a fun job at all. If you have an OBDII and I think you do. Go to our local parts store and they can hook up to it and pull fault codes from the ECM (electronic Control Module). You might get lucky and it will tell you what is wrong. If that doesn't work out for you. Consult with Ford, either online or at the dealer. They might be able to steer you in the right direction. Probably try to steer you into one of the repair bays. But you stay strong, resist the service person. You can do this, I believe in you! Well I know I can do it. Therefore I believe you can too!
Good luck,

UMMM, Ford never made a 350. That was chevy! As for the water pump. You don't repair them, you just replace them. This is a very easy motor to work on. And the pump is up front and in your face on that motor. Just take a good long look around. Even take some pics. Cuz you can these days. There are a few things that need to be addressed in the correct order. Both for removal and then installation. I haven't done that old a motor in years. But what I do remember is that if you just take a moment. It is not hard at all. If you get into trouble, let me know. I will go out to the shop and find one of my books. I can also ring a buddy that has one. He can put you on it for sure. But you should try yourself first. It's the only way to truly learn!
Good luck,

No way man! Try to sell it on CL first. what is the worst that can happen??? YOU COULD SELL IT!!!! And if you don't, then throw it away. But at least you tried to let someone out there have a go at it. And that was very kind of you to do that Sir! I respect you for it.
Good luck with your new business venture,

Wow! Don't think you can. Personally I would go back to that locksmith and either ask for my money back or have him fix the key. I bet I can tell ya which one he will do! Failing those two wonderful suggestions, I would consult the great and benevolent Ford god. Just try option #1, if that's not an option, then go by Ford and see what they can do.
Odd though, I find myself answering this question. When just today I had to get a "spare" key made for my Camry. Since the one with all the buttons is about $185-200 I just had a "chipped" key made, only $60. And those prices are cheap compared to the dealer!!! And YES it was me that lost them it the 1st place. You can join my wife with the ridicule.
Anyway, Good luck to you,

Probably the mechanism inside the housing is bad or at least loose. Is this a vehicle you bought used or are you only owner? has the mirror been hit or subject to severe shock like smacking another car while driving? If bought used, has it been replaced? Any of the above scenarios could be causing your mirror shake. But in the end there seems to be only (1) solution. And since you cannot "tighten-up" the inner workings of a powered mirror. You are going to have to replace it. Now there is the expensive route, ie; FORD. Or the less expensive route, ie; on line. My two cents, go with online. Amazon comes to mind but there are 100's of sites to choose from, Rockauto as well. Try them 1st, I have had very good luck with 'em myself. As for the mirror, they aren't hard at all to install. Pull the door cover and up in that corner where the mirror is you will find three screws. Disconnect the cable that runs down the inside of the door then those screws. Out pops the mirror and in goes the replacement. Poof all done and now you are an auto mechanic. Start charging $75 an hour.

Good luck,
