I'm been a ford man all my life, I've owned in the nieghborhood of 12 Ford trucks. This truck has to be the biggest hunk of junk I've ever owned. I'm sorry to have to say that, but the crap never ends with this thing. I have a 2004 Ford f-250 supercrew FX4 Short bed. The truck rolled off the Ford Line on 02/04. I should have checked the work history on this truck before I bought it, but no use in crying over spilt milk.
When I brought it home I thought I just got the steal of a lifetime, come to find out I just got the biggest screwing I've ever taken in my life. LMAO!
Things started going south in my first 1000 miles. The engine started idling rough, up and down from 600rpm to 1200rpm. I took it into Ford and they couldn't find a thing. They said the work history showed the egr valve was just replace 1500 miles ago, imagine that. I asked them about the ICP sensor, and they said dont think so. So I left the dealership with no fix, but they did update the computer. Which did stop the injectors from cycling after shutdown. They asked me when I was in there if I had heard any sqeeking under the hood and I said no why? They showed that the truck and been taken in 6 times for the sqeeking noise under the hood and that the serptine belt had been replaced 4 times and the front shroud twice. I said well it must be fixed because I don't hear a thing. Well that was a bad thing to say because I just jinksed myself. 1000 miles later, the sqeeking is load as ever. Pretty bad having to pull up somewhere and a woman says to me, is that noise normal! Thats how obvious it is. So now I having this noise going on and rough idling up and down. This is all going on with outside temperture of 70 degrees or hotter. Winter temps came around here overnight, and the idling surging disappeared as quickly as it appeared. What does that mean? I have no idea. The sqeeking noise stayed though and is going full bore. I torn about taking the truck in because now they wont be able to find the surging problem because its cool out now, but the noise under the hood is driving me nuts. So I guess I'm going to have to spend 100 dollars twice. My brother bought a 2005 psd f-350 4x4 supercrew longbed. He has no problems, and it just disgust me!
Anybody have any idea what the hell is going on here?
I've had it, 26000 dollars shouldn't buy you this crap!
The truck only has 47000 miles on it.
Help me please!
