My 1999 F150 makes a noise in overdrive in the 50-60 mph range. It does this when cruising and my foot is taken off the pedal under a light load and when the air temp is 60 and above. It sounds like a short whirl or hum and might be coming from the trans. or exhaust but I donít know. Has anybody with a similar year and setup experienced this problem? It has the factory extra engine and trans. oil coolers.

I also have an intermittent harsh shift from 1st to 2nd.

Does it accompany an RPM jump?

No there is no RPM change. There doesnít seem to be any performance problem. There is just the annoying sound.

Someone would need to hear it to try to track the noise down, I'd say.

Have you checked www.alldata.com for recalls on it?

I plan on bringing the truck in as the warrantee is still there. I just thought that maybe someone here had a similar problem or one of the members here was a Ford Tech. and might have encountered the problem or saw a service bulletin. I saw that site before but without subscribing you can only get a brief description of a problem. I just hate going into things blindly.

The best thing you can do is to get a work order describing the problem, then save your copy.

The Alldata site is good even if you don't suscribe because it makes you aware if a recall or TSB exists for your particular problem.

Is that what Ford calls them? I worked at a GM dealer back in 86-8 and they called the notifications campaigns that were not major safety issues.

Yes, Technical Service Bulletins.

I remember doing 'campaigns' too. My favorite was the chinzy piece of scrap metal they made us put on '80 X-bodies to try to stop the steering racks from falling off.
