  2. 2014 issue with brakes

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    2014 Ecoboost 4x4 with just over 43K miles. This past weekend I noticed a groaning noise when using brakes at low speed in a parking lot. It didn't repeat so I didn't think much of it. This evening while pulling into a parking spot (home depot run) my brakes made the same noise, then...

    F150 Ecoboost Chat

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    Lately I've been noticing a grinding noise in the LF when I brake lightly and it stays as long as I'm turning to the right and the weight is on that corner of the truck.

  6. 2013 FX4 EcoBoost with hard brake pedal issues.

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    So I just noticed this issue this weekend. I've had the truck about 2 weeks. I've racked my brain and can't pinpoint the issue, so on to the problem and hopefully a solution: when the engine is running and in park, I can pump the brake pedal and it'll stiffen up as if the engine is off. If I rev...
  7. Vacuum issues

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    I have a 2012 fx4 and am experiencing a vacuum issue I can not solve. With 94000km on the truck, I am on vacuum pump number 3. Pump 1 was replaced a 60000, pump 2 replaced just recently with 93000km in an attempt to solve the issue I currently have. The issue I am having is the brake pedal often...
