Two thermostats, one mounted on each side of the secondary radiator, operate independently to regulate the temperature of the coolant flowing to the various components. The contact stated that the check engine indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. We have 154K miles on this truck. Hi, where do I troubleshoot from here? This can keep the regeneration system from cleaning the particulate filter, which will cause smoke and a lack of power. Over the years, I have owned a few 7.
We also took them to the Lemon Law court in St Louis, we won also. If I new that over the year it would cost me 15 grand to keep this thing on the road I would have taken it to the scrap yard. If it has not gone on you it will. It was cheaper do that than buy another truck. And it is shitty of Ford to not fix this out of warranty. Ford told me it was junk! I have a good friend that had the exact same problem at around 180,000.
We also provide free support and have experienced diesel techs that can help you with your 6. Checked all my fluids again for mixture. The injectors have a piezo stack instead of an electro-magnetic solenoid. I believe that there is a bigger problem which has to do with the 6. The vehicle was not repaired. When energized, the piezo crystals expand, lifting the control valve off of its seat via a hydraulic coupler connecting plunger below to begin injection.
Tee in a gauge and clear line at the pump inlet or as close as possible to the pump inlet to get a pressure reading and visually check for air bubbles. Engine and trans temp gauges stay dead center before and after this update which finished yesterday. Or just buy a Cummings like we all should of they day we bought a 6. The truck broke down in May, one month after I purchased it. We needed it for our company. ? Everything is still stock in the motor and turbo.
Only 55k miles on the truck and it was treated like gold the whole time we had it. The service rep said they had several of these same problems on other trucks. I have a 2003 6. The worst part is one of the heads is cracked beyond repair. Despite an overwhelming number of problems, the 6. That dealership pulled the wool over your eyes. It needed to be purchased and then Ford had to program it.
Engine stalls at highway speeds put doesn't die. Running several buzz tests cold will sometimes free up the injectors. They are remain and if they tell you different theya are full of it. If the P2033 code resets right away, suspect a failed sensor. So far all they tell me is that it is too bad!!!!.
Pulled the maintenance report from Ford, had typical repairs of the 6. There is normally a pick up sock or fuel strainer in the tank. When they fail it is often catastrophic and they send metal particles throughout the high pressure side of the fuel system, causing further damage. For those that have already gotten screwed, I feel your pain, and that sucks. The contact owns a 2004 Ford F350.
Truck was purchased new from Ford, has been in shop 6 times for same problem. The vehicle had multiple fuel system problems. I am looking at spending oodles of money now to fix this pile of junk. Left for Utah I live in California and guess what — more missing. Hmmmm…maybe it was a fluke. No power, just a idle. Engine sounds like it is cranking faster than usual.
Call for more info parting out 2004 f350 fx4 4 door 4×4 with 6. A residue is normal, but puddles of oil are excessive. We no longer work directly with them because there are simply too many questions from customers that did not want to buy anything, they were simply curious about the project. Then once the engine is shut off, it will not start again until the exhaust cools off. Manufactured by Navistar, these defective engines were used in Ford trucks from 2003 to 2007. I blame myself 100%, I should have never purchased another 6. Try increasing the rail pressure, we find injector nozzles that leak at idle pressure, but do not leak at higher pressure.
