  • Hello FordTechOne - 2020 Raptor and I asked dealer to do an alignment. Everything is in the green, they back it off the lift and begin to do a test drive. They don't even get out of the parking lot and the steering wheel re-adjusts left or right of center while the truck is tracking straight. After the 6th or 7th try today, they gave up. I would be grateful for any thoughts or guidance. Thanks.

    Hi, it sounds like they’re not getting the camber bolts properly torqued. Is the truck modified? Spec is 258 on-ft. If they shift, it throws the entire alignment off.

    Good morning sir. I have a 2018 Raptor and started hearing the rattle can sound from the front right of the vehicle at WOT which led me to the IWE discussions in all the threads. However, when in 4A it still makes the noise at WOT. Could you point me in the right direction as to what this could be? I did install the COBB ECU/TCM tune recently but I'm not sure that would have led to this.

    If the charge piping is all properly connected and it’s still not building boost, I would recommend pulling all DTCs and doing a visual inspection of the turbos.

    It hasn't had any DTC's at all. Thats kinda throwing me for a loop.

    Sometimes P0299 will not set right away, so definitely start with a visual inspection
    Hello, quick question. I've seen you're very knowledgeable about these trucks. I replaced both of the front wheel bearings on my '19 and didn't realize that you had to have vacuum on the IWE before placing the new ones in. I've driven the truck for roughly 100 miles after install and haven't had any sensors/codes pop up. Am I going to royally mess something up if I installed the bearings without vacuum applied?

    If they’re engaging/disengaging properly without any noise you may be fine, just a matter of luck really.
    Hello, I was wondering what your thoughts are on SDI’s Front buckets. They provide a combination of 10mm preload (3/4” preload suspension travel) and 11mm of spacer built into the tophat. I installed these on my 2022 35 Raptor but am now questioning it after I read that tophat spacers will mess up the “geometry” of the trucks suspension and will lead to all sorts of other issues. What’s your take on this?
    Hello, I have a 17 gen 2 and yes the cam phaser. Is this something that can do damage? Do you recommend I try and get it fixed, even though I'm out of warranty. I can live with the rattle but do not want any damage. TYIA

    If it’s a slight (2 second or so) rattle only on cold start, it will likely not cause damage long term. However if they get louder or the rattle lasts longer than a couple seconds I’d have them replaced, as severe rattle can damage the vanes eventually.

    Hi Sir. Need some advice, 2017Raptor 115k miles. Out of no where shifting issue started. Jump/Hard/Hanging shifts etc. But random. No codes or check engine light. tried reseting TCM by unhooking battery terminals NO change. Going to reset the adaptive learning. Was reading on here that there is a software update available? How do get my hands on this? Any help appreciated. Ty

    Sorry yes I mistyped. Those are the codes. I do have a SCT Tuner that I use to upload tunes. I'll look into if that can do it. If so where do I find the updates needed to be installed?

    And just to clarify. Dosent seem to be any issue with the Shifter linkage.

    An SCT tuner cannot install Ford calibration updates; you’ll need IDS or a professional level scan tool to do that.
    Need some help on fixing the cam phaser problem again. Got it fixed last year and a year later it’s back again. Is there something I can buy for this to stop happening. Where do you recommend I take the truck in? Ford ??

    What exactly is the issue? If you had it fixed last year you already have the new part numbers. Did you have recall 21B10 completed?
    Hi can you repost the bulletin from ford regarding the clunking front end issue for 2021 Raptor please.

    Thanks

    Some 2021-2022 F-150 Raptor vehicles built on or before 16-Jun-2022 may experience a clunk, thump, and/or rattle noise from the front and /or rear when going over bumps. This may be due to a concern with the shock absorbers.
    FordTechOne

    Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Sections 100-04 and 204-00 to perform the appropriate noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) diagnosis and inspections. If diagnosis leads to a shock absorber, replace only the affected shock absorber(s).

    Hello @FordTechOne

    I am having issues with my 4X4 always that I start up my truck 4H engages by itself but the 2H light remains, after 7 minutes it disengages and it starts working normally. I used FORSCAN and my ECU sends the signal "NO" to the IWS which remains in "YES" but it won´t follow the command even that I tried to control it and press "NO".

    How are you determining its in 4WD? As mentioned, IWEs will remain engaged after startup for a few miles. That means the axles and front driveshaft will be turning during that time. The TCCM will likely ignore any scan tool IWE solenoid commands due to the start up strategy.

    Hello I’ve seen you on a lot of posts and you seem to be knowledgeable about our trucks. I have a question about the Gen 1. When shifting from gear 1-3 there’s a buzz like sound, my question is, is that normal? It’s noticeably louder when the ac is on. I’ve own it for a yr now. Any insight to what it might be? It’s a servo like buzzing sound.

    Hello, does the noise start immediately after shifting into drive (1st gear) or only once you’re moving? Transmission Shift Solenoid A is On in gear ratios 1st - 4th, so if it’s only occurring in 1st - 3rd, it’s not likely shift solenoid related.

    Thanks for the reply. Only once I’m moving. I’ve watched a few videos on YouTube of Gen 1 Raptors and I’ve heard a similar buzzing sound whenever they’re shifting. Whenever you get time May you please watch a YouTube video Specifically a video by Kevin Bridges “We put a Corsa exhaust on the Raptor”. Skip to 6:40 and listen to a sound on 6:42 when his truck shifts. That’s the sound my truck makes.
