THE 2004 F150 SC HAS A FEW PROBLEMS: FIRST WAS THE WATER LEAKING FROM THE THIRD BRAKE LIGHT IN WHICH I HAD TO APPLY SILICONE AROUND THE RUBBER SEAL OF THE LIGHT...NEVER LEAKED AGAIN. SECOND ISSUE WAS FAR MORE FRUSTRATING, WHEN TRAVELING AROUND 40 TO 50 MPH WHEN DECIDING TO ACCELERATE QUICKLY THE TRUCK WOULD ACT AS IF IT WAS BEING STARVED OF FUEL. THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE IT WAS BY DEPRESSING THE ACCELERATOR AND RELEASING IT VERY QUICKLY. I TOOK IT TO THE WONDERFUL FORD DEALERSHIP, SARCASTIC, AND THEY TOLD ME NOTHING WAS WRONG, AND SHOP MANAGER TOLD ME IT WAS BECAUSE OF COLD AIR INTAKE... FINALLY ,AFTER CALLING FORD CUSTOMER SERVICE AND COMPLAINING THE DEALERSHIP DECIDED IT WAS MY THROTTLE BODY...NATURALLY ALL MY PROBLEMS WERE GONE. NOW, LESS THAN A YEAR LATER THE PROBLEM AROSE AGAIN AND I WILL POST THE OUTCOME ONCE KNOWN. THE THIRD INCIDENCE WAS THE FRONT BUCKET SEATS, STARTED NOTICING SHREDDED FOAM UNDER THE FRONT PART OF THE SEATS, NOT KNOWING WHAT IT COULD BE I ASSUMED IT WAS EXCESS FOAM AROUND THE SEAT STRAPS LOCATED UNDER EACH SEAT, TO MY SURPRISE A HOLE APPEARED ON THE DRIVER'S SEAT ON THE FRONT LEFT CORNER FACING THE DOOR AND AGAIN I WENT TO THE WONDERFUL DEALERSHIP AND I SHOWED THEM THERE WAS A PIECE OF METAL WITH A SHARP BARB THAT WAS SLOWLY SHREDDING THE FOAM AND WAS THE CULPRIT IN CREATING THE HOLE AND THE SHREDDED FOAM. CAUTION!!!!!! IF YOUR TRUCK HAS THIS PROBLEM BE CAREFUL!!! I WAS GETTING OUT OF THE TRUCK AND THE METAL BARB CAUGHT MY PANTS AND TORE A HUGE HOLE AND GAVE ME A PRETTY DEEP CUT ON THE INNER THIGH. NONE THE LESS THE DEALERSHIP DIDN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. I FINALLY CONVINCED THEM TO REPLACE THE SEAT WITH ME PAYING FOR THE REPLACEMENT COST...BUT, BEFORE I COULD GET THE WORK DONE THE WONDERFUL DEALERSHIP WENT OUT OF BUSINESS AND I HAVEN'T HIT-UP THE NEW OWNERS.
