I have a noise problem and have been to several dealers, when you hold the accelerator steady it makes a very loud hissing noise, when you let off the gas or get on it heavy it goes away, the dealer has replaced the intake manifold and the catalytic converter, we have test driven with the service manager a identical truck and it does not make the noise and trucks at work that are equivalent don't make the noise as well, the service advisor said it is not right however when an engineer came in he could not identify the problem and deemed it a characteristic of the vehicle, it did not start making the noise until it had approximately 4 to 5,000 miles on it and has gradually been getting worse. Ford customer service says they are not going to do anything further with this issue.

Accelerator does not return to idle on very cold days. In neutrall the engine revs at about 4000 rpm. I have had close calls while aproaching intersections. I really needed to lay on the brakes. My vehicle is 1998 Ford f150 with a 5. 4 engine. I no there is a saftey recall (98v007) for the same vehicle with a 4. 2 l engine but my truck truck has the exact same problem. The dealer told me their was a kit available to fix the problem and that I would have to pay for it. I also suspect that the kit is for the 4. 2 liter engine .

Failure Date: 10/26/2004

Traveling approximately 10-15 mph slowing to stop at light. Started to apply brakes and engine revved up. Engine was fighting the brakes. Pressed both feet on brakes and still truck did not stop. Pressure in the brakes, so there was fluid in the cylinder. Had to swerve around one vehicle and had to put the vehicle in park to get it to stop. I came within inches of hitting another vehicle. Once I got the vehicle stopped it worked just fine, so I drove it to the dealer. The same thing had happened previously, but the dealership looked at it and said nothing was wrong. This time when I took it in, described the problem and told them it had been in once before, they took me a little more seriously. This is the second time this has happened in 3 months. The truck only has approximately 8,000 miles on it. The dealer has had my truck for two days and can not get it to replicate the problem. They have contacted Ford and said they would let me know what they find out.

Last year owner's vehicle began having acceleration problems. The first time owner drove the vehicle at 35 mph and when he took foot off of accelerator and put in on the brakes vehicle surged forward like it wanted to go 70 mph. Then a week later, his wife was backing out of the driveway and left skid marks because the vehicle accelerated and she tried to stop it. The owner took vehicle to dealer last year.

About one week after I purchsed my truck I was stopping at stop sign, and my truck suddenly acclerated. This happens ocassoanally. It can happen once or twice a week or it can go a couple months without a incident. I had it to the dealer (zimmerman Ford in cedar rapids iowa) they reprogramed it and that did not fix the problem. I have told them many times that it was still occuring and they said if they could not duplicate the problem while they had it they could not do anything about it. I have been having thie problem for 18 mounths now. I came very close to having a accident 3 times and will not drive the truck anymore. It is not safe to drive. I called Ford motor company and they refered me back to the dealer, which has gotten me nowhere. I see where there have been 8 or more complaints on your websight with the same problem. My Ford dealer said they have a thing called oasis for dealers to report thease problems to Ford and there was not any complaints with this problem.
