The engine would only start when fuel was added. Again on the drive home I lost the turbo. The loss of power symptoms have occurred approximately 30 to 50 times since it began at the 16000 mile point, on July 29. The truck has been in the shop for diagnosis and repair 14 times. It is dangerous enough on the highways without having to deal with a truck that isn't safe. It drove great, no problems at all. The failure would persist whether driving or sitting idle.
Remove the cap or plug and install a new O-ring seal. We waited and then we saw it. We were told this is a big problem with Ford diesels and the Ford engineers are telling consumers that they aren't changing the oil enough. I was towed home as the truck would not restart. Waited for 2 hours for a tow truck.
The engine rpm increases,the accelerator is almost to the floor, the truck begins to slow down as if there is slipping in the driveline. Install the new torque converter-to-flywheel retaining nuts. Connect the ground cable and the ground stud. Truck is at dealership this morning. . Install the battery tray and bolts. When I asked if they were firm, they said the price is what got you here.
However, it happened again once we were on the road. For additional information, refer to Section 310-00. When we got there, they said it was out with a customer. Obviously the warranty has passed with the exception of the motor and I have 26,500 miles on this truck. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure.
Install the flywheel housing cover. I asked to have the high pressure pump that was removed from my truck, and I was told that he had to send it back to Ford because it had a very expensive core. Connect the fuel lines and install the clips. There has always been a problem when turning engine off to put gas in vehicle the engine would not restart, this was a diesel engine. Connect the exhaust pressure sensor tube fitting to the exhaust manifold and install the exhaust pressure sensor retaining nut.
It had to be towed off an interstate bridge, to side of road out of way where afterwards consumer called Ford. The failure usually occurs in the mornings. Install the heat shield and bolts. No repairs have been made because dealership could not duplicate the problem. Connect the ground strap on the right head and install the bolt.
Next I took it to another dealership in a nearby town. The failure mileage was 61000 and the current mileage was 62000. Connect the body feed cable and install the retaining nut. Install the transmission cooler tube bracket and nut. The vehicle was not further repaired and the manufacturer would not assist with the repair.
It stalled and started billowing white smoke from the exhaust. Connect the 12-pin and 8-pin electrical connectors. I consistently changed the oil in that truck every 5000 miles with delo 400 as I was told to do. The engine was missing and we made it to an intersection to pull off of highway. The vehicle was towed to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the fuel injection control module and injection control pressure needed to be replaced. The vehicle was taken to the dealer several times for the failure where the dealer replaced the fuel injectors but the failure was not corrected.
I had to wrestle with the truck to get it stopped and pulled over to the side of the road. No warning lights illuminated at the time. Then they put the trailer back on my truck and drove it again. The failure mileage was 115,000 and the current mileage was 121,000. While driving 55 mph, the vehicle surged to 60 mph without warning and then shut off. No leather, no options nothing.
