Any help would be great.

I am having some issues with my 04 f250. Sometimes it runs like a striped *** ape and other times it falls on its face and runs like crap. Not real sure on what to do here. I am a diesel mechanic but these powerstrokes are a different animal with the huey injection system. If anyone could help figure this thing out it would be greatly appreciated.

Battery light on but batteries good and alternator good but slow cranking after sits for awhile.
First start up stumbles and misses really bad the idle smooths out and runs fine.
Even after letting warm up and being plugged in has no real power for first couple of miles of driving.
Turbo cycling sometimes on startup but no all the time.
Eat throttle position sensor like nothing else I have ever seen. #4 now and only had it for 8 months.
Pully or belt squelling but only under load. Won't do it while idling. Not real bad but can barely hear it over loud tires.

I guess thats it for now. A big list and its really got me hating this truck sometimes. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

i grew up in joplin,mo. I cant help you on your problems but a word of advice DON'T take it to the ford dealership there they are morons. Took mine in to get my head gaskets fixed and the guy took 3 weeks to fix it and to top it off he stripped my oil drain plug. then they didnt want to fix it. they said that i could of changed the oil myself and did it. i think he was mad since he could not take my bumper off since its welded to the frame and he had to work around it.

Ya those guys are a bunch of retards. Same with Carthage Ford. They did an injector in my truck right before I bought it and now it leaks oil from l/s valve cover. They refused to fix it and said they don't have to since it wasn't mine when they did it. Funny part is they fixed the injector under warranty when the warranty had been up for over a year.
