Disconnect the fuel heater, replace fuse, re-try start. A true testament to synthetic oil and proper maintenance. While parked, the contact detected that the engine oil pan was leaking. Check for damaged wiring, moisture or water intrusion. Automatic transmissions can fail before 100,000 miles and I have heard of flywheels cracking. Spend more time in the shop than in the fire house. I'm trying to decide whether or not to buy it.
I know of three other friends the same thing happen to, luckily no one got hurt when there truck died going down the highway. The vehicle was under warranty the first time, but the contact paid for the repair the second time. I have gone from 15 mpgto 8mpg. The weak point would be the tranny if it is an automatic. They can take a dump at anywhere over 80-90K miles. Plenty of legroom and headroom. Driver leather seat cover wore prematurely.
When I decided to proceed with the purchase, he was very accommodating in answering my questions and delivering the car to my hotel, since I traveled from another state and was not familiar with Salt Lake City. With heavy towing weight, this is also extremely dangerous. There are better ways to get more power and torque out of your Ford Powerstroke diesel than by spending hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars building a high-performance engine. Do some reading over at thedieselstop. After researching the problem I found that the cause was a faulty camshaft position sensor which, although it appeared to be a recurring problem on Ford diesels Ford has never notified me as such.
The 2002 was the last and best version of the 7. Listed below are 9 common problems of the 7. One way to rule this out is to check the fuel bowl for fuel before and while cranking. There has been no recalls as of yet to take care of this. What kind of mileage could I expect? I feel this item should last the life of the vehicle. .
There were no computer trouble codes stored when this happens. Glow plug controller failed again. The approximate failure mileage was 123,000. The fix was replace the cam shaft position sensor. The crank position sensor cps is known to fail without warning so always carry an extra if you do buy.
This should have been a simple, low cost job but since Ford used defective metal in their oil pans causing them to rust out and the cross member between the frame, the whole engine has to be removed to change the pan. Can cause the engine to cut out and eventually die. My truck was burning from under the hood. This is a known problem among Ford truck owners. Stalled a week or so later and turned on the check engine light.
I replaced the sensor myself, and the problem has been corrected. This was our first out medic rig for 10 years and has had some small problems, but up until last week it never left us stranded. Started out with intermittent sputtering. The dealer said they are aware of that problem. When I contacted a dealer regarding the problem they said that there was nothing that they could do as the vehicle was 6 months past the 100,000 miles 5 year engine warranty , I am still under the 100,000 miles. I have the old sensor available for inspection if Ford wants it, but I am sure they are well aware of this problem with these trucks.
Ford needs to seriously look into this problem with these sensors. Someone must like them if their selling 1,000,000 a year! Interior still relatively tight after 85,000 miles. Any idea about how many miles are in them if they are well maintained? Other than a few glitches with the financing and extended warranty process, I was able to drive my new car home safely and satisfactorily. How can I begin a class action recall at Ford's expense for this unnecessary and very costly job?. The contact felt that the manufacturer should be responsible for shipping cost. I used a Super-chips Micro-tuner to turn horsepower up from the stock 250 to over 300, and not only did the get-up-and-go improve, but fuel mileage also increased over four miles-per-gallon. Powerstroke tuners which includes chips, modules, and plug-in programmers give you more power by changing the factory tuning parameters like injector pulse width, boost pressure, and fuel rail pressure, to get more fuel into the engine and burn it better, giving you more power when you need it.
This makes the truck hard to steer and stop, and is a very dangerous condition,especially while towing a trailer. Our equipment including our trucks is the nicest and best maintained in the oil patch. The leather seats cushion the stiff ride. I then tried to stop the truck, and with the engine stalled ,there was no power brakes either. The oil pan to the motor has rusted through.
A restricted fuel filter will often cause long cranking or a semi-loss of power, if the injectors can't get the fuel they need. The current and failure mileages were 58,347. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The manufacturer stated that they would not reimburse the cost to have the vehicle shippied to the dealer. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The vehicle was repaired on three occasions but the failure recurred. The approximate failure and current mileage was 140,000.
