Ford F-150 Model Year 2005 Most Common Repairs

The saga of broken power window regulators continues in the year 2005. Just like its predecessor, the 2005 F150 also suffers from a bevy of power window regulator problems, as well as the problems with spark plugs breaking during replacement. On the positive side, the reports were not as numerous as for the 2004 F-150.  Unfortunately in addition to above problems, 2005 F-150 can commonly run into serious transmission problems. The solution is expensive – transmission needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Another fairly common problem is a rear differential failure. Fortunately (if you don’t own one of these) 2004 and 2005 seem to be the most problem prone model years for the F150. Rest of the F150 family has considerably fewer problems.   At Adams Autoworx Albany we offer complete range of Ford F-150 services and repairs. So whether your F150 needs regular service or is facing a major repairs, bring it to our Albany auto repair shop – our nationally ASE c ... read more

Ford F-150 2004 Repair in Albany, CA

Adams Autoworx Albany offers full range of Ford F-150 repairs. Looking at the F-150 model, the one with the most complaints appears to be F-150 produced in 2004. It is known for two common problems – window not going up and spark plugs breaking off in head. The window problem is in most cases easy to solve – it requires installation of a new window regulator. In some cases, new window regulator cables were needed. The repair is pretty straightforward.  Spark plugs breaking off in head is a different story. It requires considerable work, and tends to be on the expensive side. So if you own 2004 F-150, be forewarned.  At Adams Autoworx we service all Ford vehicles, and provide a free digital vehicle inspection with every service or repair.
