  • 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.
    Can you tell me if there is a way to just have 4H in normal mode in a 21? My 19 I could just turn the knob, I can only find Modes on the 21 4A in slippery mode, allows you the briefly spin before it kicks in. I have a long steep hill to my home

    I just looked in the owner’s manual; if you push the 4H button on the top right of the drive mode dial it won’t go into 4H?

    I read that probably 6 times, then reading your response I ran out and realized those are buttons! Crap, thank you it works!

    There are 2 different part numbers (intake and exhaust) but the newest version of both end in suffix “CD”.
    The nut had not been previously removed and was a Nyloc flange nut. The threads looked "OK" and went together smoothly. I wonder how long it was loose. Thanks for the reply.
    I have a question.
    We were out at the Mojave Road and my friends 2020 Raptor SCAB had the UCA ball-joint nut come off. I found the nut and installed the UCA. Is there any "standard" repair on that type of failure or is it open to the Tech?
    I would NOT fell comfortable with just retorquing the nut.

    Was the nut previously removed? The factory nut has a nylon insert; it should never loosen up on its own. If the threads are undamaged, the proper repair is to replace the nut and torque it to spec.
    My engine blew at 91K Miles. Told a valve broke off and went through the cylinders into the block and turbos. Luckily it covered under my 100K Ford warranty. The dealer says there are no complete engines available so they are ordering a long block and all the other parts separately. My question is are the techs specifically trained to build an engine as well as the factory ?

    Yes, technicians are trained in engine disassembly/assembly. However, there is no “building” required with a long block; it includes everything except for the intake/exhaust manifolds, fuel system, and accessories. You will never get a complete engine under warranty because it’s not necessary when the existing components can be reused.
    Started a conversation with you but not sure if you got it so I started another one.

    Sorry if it's a duplicate.
    That`s what i thought but the Ford ordered 5 more cams from different location and all of them are the same.

    Wow, that is definitely strange. Even though the teeth are spaced the same, I don't see how the PCM wouldn't flag that as being out of time, since it's 180 degrees out. Sorry I can't be of more help.
