2000 Ford F150 XLT V8 4.6 from North America
It's a great truck to keep around with some minor problems
1. Trouble with starter not catching all the time. Seems random.
2. When it's cold out and I start my truck sometimes the left blinker comes on with the only way to turn it off is to turn the hazards on and off.
3.Transmission seems to have started slipping around 80,000 miles.
4. CD player doesn't want to play Cd's. Seems like it won't pick up the disk.
How ever with these problems this has been a very sound truck.
It pulls a trailer like a dream.
It gets muddy with the rest of them with out a problem to.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Sounds like you starter is going, you may want to have that looked at. You see the starter and flywheel mate toghether on spokes and if one of the "teeth" is broken on one of these wheels that could be causing you problem. If you starter makes a high pitch whine when it doesn't catch that is probably it.
