Just bought a used 200 f250 diesel with 150k miles.
No problems for 2 weeks, worked perfectly fine. All of a sudden I got a noise coming from my engine when I hit the gas. Im talking a loud screeching noice that does not let up, only if i let off the pedal does it stop.
My mechanics first thought, the pulley and belt, changed that, still at square one.
His first thought could be the intake gasket could be damaged.
second or worse guess, a bad turbo?
What do you guys think? Also being 150k miles, was I looking at a new turbo anyways or should they last?
Any help would be so appreciated. Just got my truck, was so happy and I feel like i just bought myself into a mess.
Any ideas are so appreciated!!!
