1987 Ford F150 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 198000 miles
This older work horse has been swallowing the cash fixing a very confused fuel system. However it is still in great condition and has passed Air Care. Recently and only occasionally we will start the truck up it will be fine in reverse and then when we go to move forward it is as if one wheel is spinning forward and one is spining backwards, I did not think the differential could work in this manner. Eventually you can force it to crawl forward protesting all the way and then it will clear up and stop doing it. Until that is the next time you stop. However once the Truck is warm it does not do it only first thing an early in the day.
Does this spell then end of the F-150 and us hunting for another reliable beaten up truck for these sites?
Any suggestion on where to go to get a handle on this?
have the same problem?
