How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight
turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right
turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are
easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of
what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball
joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I
often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't
know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue
doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake
the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If
you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check
out this article I wrote on the topic.

How To SeaFoam 2004-2008 5.4L Ford F150
Here is a quick vid of how to SeaFoam a 2004-2008 Ford F150 5.4L V8. The
best way to do it that I have found is through the Brake Booster Line, as it feeds all the cylinders at
Disconnect the Brake Booster Line,
or whatever Vacuum line you plan to use. With the engine running, start
feeding the line into the bottle to suck out the fluid. You will have to
have someone inside the vehicle to keep the RPM's between 1600 and 2000.
Going over wont blow your engine or anything, but it doesnt allow the fluid
to fully saturate the components.
After you have sucked up the amount of fluid that you want to use, turn off
the engine and let it sit for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, go ahead and
start it up and start revving the engine as you see in the video. This
will clean out most of the gunk and buildup, but like I said in the video,
after the smoke starts to dissipate, take the vehicle for a drive. Punch
it once or twice to make sure to dislodge all the extra crap.
This stuff will work wonders. You will notice a smoother idle and you will
gain a bit of power that has been lost to the carbon buildup in the engine.

My 04 Ford F150 makes a soft ticking noise
My 04" Ford F150 has a soft ticking noise. It has a V8 5.4lt. I have taken
it to 4 different Ford Dealerships to ask why my truck ticks...it started
at 107,000miles and they all said its normal. I don't believe that...they
say its bc of large injectors. I have Googled different reasons like oil
pressure problems, injectors or spark plugs. All i know is, it only does it
when the engines warmed up and only at idle. At 124,000miles my truck died
when i was driving it. I took it in at ford dealership 30miles away. They
put a new Cam Phaser in on the driver side " but the ticking comes from the
passenger side,HMMM??" changed the VCT sensor and spent 5 days working on
the timing chain. Oh, they also said they had to update the
software....what software??....It still ticks!?!
