Ford F-350 Super Duty QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I'm having a new 6.0 engine put in my 2004 F-350. I had water in my oil and my mechanic is urging me to replace the HPOP, all fuel injectors, and all sensors. Is this all absolutely necessary. I don't see how these parts could have been damaged, but I'm no mechanic! I know it would be better to do so, but I'm already going to be out almost $13,000.00 and really can't afford an additional $2,500 to $3,000! I need guidance and would greatly appreciate any feedback.
I am noticing what looks to be blue smoke and smell like oil but the truck is not leaking at all. Could this be an injector sticking or some kind of cleaning mode,
I've had this truck for 2 year have taken it to several place to repair the fuse blows when i take a turn left or right. sometimes i don't turn and it still blows the fuse.
I was changing the oil filter on my 2004 ford f350 and broke the oil filter return tube inside
My mechanic says that my engine is toast, and needs replacing. Says that their is coolant in my oil "which their wasn't when I took it in" and all kinds of other catastrophic issues, most likely due to hydro-locking. Is this possible, or is he just full of s--t? Please help!!!!
Went to shop for what I thought was going to be an EGR delete and necessary components. What I got after diagnostic test was "engine is toast" most probably due to hydro-locking. Could this be true, or did I just get ahold of a crook trying to scam me out of much more money. I desperately need help in knowingly what to do! Replace motor with used, rebuilt, remanufactured, new, ??? Or get truck out of that shop as fast as possible! This truck is a wrecker, and my livelyhood, and need to make a move quick as possible! PLEASE HELP!!!! I'm lost and desperate!
I have no dashlights at all, what has happened, and how do i fix it?
It is also gushing water out of exhaust pipe!
My truck is leaning over 1-1/4 inches down on the front driver side. Some information on this and a fix has been posted. They recommend a shim under the front spring to correct this problem. Ford had a shim that they have dealer install or you can buy it and install. Ford shim number is 3C4Z-5A300-AA
Help - have been fighting this problem for 2 years. 2000 Ford F350 Super Duty Diesel - stalls, dies and loses power. When I lose power I lose the steering and breaks. Seems to involve the transmission too as I can hear it trying to engage. Sometimes restarts immediately sometimes have to wait. Intermittent issue. One day will be fine... the next day occurs several times. Engine light does not come on and no code can be detected. Have taken it to 3 Ford Dealers and 3 independent garages. Each time they say they can’t get the truck to fail and it’s not throwing any codes so they have either taken their best guess on what to fix or say they can’t duplicate the issue so no idea what is needed. Have had injectors 1 & 8 replaced – didn’t help. Also, recently had the Cam Position Sensor replaced but that didn’t work either. I am running out of ideas and shops close by to take it to. I can’t understand why neither the dealers nor the independent operators can find the issue. Have spent way too much money already but not really in the position to buy a different truck right now and must have one for my work.
136000 miles on the truck and on the 3rd transmission bought the truck new from the factory. right now it wont shift down til its too late then it will get to 3000 rpms and wont shift til you let up from the pedal then you better hang on cuz the whole truck jumps. what would be causing this? thanks in advance!
When accelerating the truck often begins to shake or vibrate violently. Generally, not on cruise control though it may be happening to a lesser degree when on cruise. If you immediately let up off the accelerator, the vibration eases off but it you continue to push accelerator it gets much worse to the point that things in the truck and trailer fall, spill etc. (6.7 diesel engine)Since it is not reproducible in the shop, no codes have been identified.
Cleaned the sensor it started shut it off started up tryed starting a hour later won't start bought new sensor won't start. Any idea's?
no power and stalls out when driving
It started one day when I was on the interstate doing about 75 and it started right back up and didn't do it again until a few days later once again I was on the interstate again I was doing about 75 so I thought it was a problem when I go over 70 but know it have gotten worse it seems like if I drive it and don't push on the gas so the rpm don't go over 2 grand it won't kill I had the codes read at auto parts store and it said I had a bad crank and cam sensor so I changed my fuel filter and both sensors still have the problem any suggestions
I have an F350 Power Stroke. I have had it into Ford 3 times over the last 2 MO. I just drove it from Las Vegas To SLC, it pulled great up the hills NO problem. I just picked it up from ford 3 days prior to leaving town. On the way back home it started the same thing that I have had it not ford for LOSS OF POWER! would only drive 54 MPH.
I feel like I am a Ginny PIG and they are doing trial and error to fix my problem. $1500.00 and I still have the same problem.
The truck does NOT do it all the time, just sometimes!
HELP! Any suggestions or Ideas?
Now they are telling me another story and saying it is going to cost just over 6,000.00 to fix!
HELP! thank You, Richard
I just put a camshaft position sensor in this truck and it still shuts off while I'm driving it so what's the matter with it
I just need to know what are the major pieces to remove and reinstall a rebuilt manual transmission I know the drive shaft the shifter the slave cylinder starter have to be removed and the crossmember but I was wondering if I can swap it out without having to remove the exhaust
This only happens when the truck is parked on slant, bed down hill for about 4 hours. It will start right back up and repeats this until I start it and immediately hit the gas pedal. 6.0 diesel.
