As some of you already know, over the last 6 months i have had 4 IWE solenoids for the 4wheel drive system on my 07 F150 fail. The truck was taken in again this morning for another IWE issue and this time the dealer found a vacuum leak. I should have it back some time Monday or Tuesday and hopefully this will be the last of the problem. Apparently when the leveling kit was installed, the vacuum line on the passenger side of the engine compartment shifted and has been hitting the exhaust manifold causing a small pinhole leak in the line that would open and close due to heat and friction against the manifold. Dealer has new line ordered for it under the factory warranty.
Just throwing this out there for anyone else with and 04' and up F150 with the same issue. IF you lifted or leveled the truck and are having problems inspect your vacuum line on the passenger side of the engine compartment for clearance between the line and the manifold.

im amazed the dealer is applying the warranty for a failure due to installation of aftermarket parts, unless they installed it. which dealer?
