2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
There is a technical service bulletin for the V8 engines regarding a possible problem with the spark plug being ejected from the cylinder head, damaging the threads in the spark plug hole. If the vehicle is under warranty, cylinder head replacement is recommended. If the vehicle is out of warranty, Ford authorized the use of a specific thread insert to repair the head.
The cooler for the EGR valve can leak coolant internally, which causes white smoke to come from the tail pipe. Hot exhaust gases are cooled by the EGR cooler before being circled back into the engine.
If the engine cranks but will not start, this may be caused by damaged wiring to the high pressure fuel pump. Wiring to the pump can be chafed, which causes the pump to stop working. The chafed wires will need to be accessed and repaired.
If the driveline angle is out of adjustment, it can cause shuddering from the vehicle when accelerating from a stop. The driveline angle should be adjusted to reduce vibration in most driving conditions.
