Problem with new Ford Camshaft

4 posts in this topic

I have an 04 ford f-150 and it needs a new camshaft. Ford said it does not have any. Anywhere in the USA.

It has to build one and was now back ordered another month.

My question is -- is there a problem with these so they run out -- is a recall down the road or do they just not stock parts anymore?

Also -- we can't get an after market -- what is up with that?

Any and all information first-hand or rumor would be great.

Thanks

Hitman

Hitman, a few questions for ya! I am assuming you have the new body style? What engine? Why is it bad? Who said it needed one? What was the truck doing?

To answer your question, no! I can honestly say that I have replaced 1 cam in the 3 valve 4.6, 5.4 engines, and thats because a follower fell out. I just orderd a new head, since it was under warranty and thats what ford recommends. That might be the problem why you cant find one, do to the fact that the head should be replaced as an assy.and not just the cam, being if the cam is bad, you would want new cam bearings, which are part of the head!

I am still intersested why it is being replaced!

hey --

thanks

The rollers wore a few groves in the cam and that is what Ford said to replace it. It is the 5.4. the dealer said it was clicking --

Does that help?

Thanks Hitman! It isnt a comon concern, so that would be why the cam isnt available. I think if you searched for a complete head you will find many of them local, although I am sure they will cost a quite abit more as well!

I show cam price about $200, complete head $1100-1300, I would look used or wait for a cam to show up!

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
