Emerson, AR

I have been driving Ford Diesel Trucks since 1985. I currently own a 95, 96, 2000, 2002. I work them hard in the logging industry; they may have a few problems like anything else but you can't do better as long as you stay with the 7.3 engine. Never buy any other engine. I am not a tech and I don't give out advice if I haven't been there.

Question Asked: 

All equipment in my truck works but sometimes when I start up the windows, radio, fan, etc will not work. I can hit the dash over the steering wheel with the hills of both hands and everything will come back on. Sometimes with the engine on or off and the radio on I can open the glove box and the radio will go off. Is it a ghost?

Question Answered: 

First be sure the rear main is leaking. It can be very deceiving as their is a more normal occurrence where oil from a hard to find source runs down and around convincing you that it is the rear main. Mine did this and when I went to the Ford dealer they said they had never actually replaced the seal as it turned out in 100% of cases it was just an oil leak; much cheaper. To change the rear main you have to pull the very heavy transmission which requires a very heavy jack that most shops around here don't have. Check the small thing first. Never take a high quality race horse (Ford) to a goat farmer (Chevy dealer).
