Hello all and thanks for helping this is a great forum!
So here is what is happening; tried to start the truck (6.0) and it wouldn’t fire up. It took about fifteen tries before it started. Some black smoke on the third attempt and then finally it kicked over but didn’t run. Several more tries with the same result and then it finally started up and ran a little ruff for a min or two.
The truck has 89,000 miles and sports a Banks six gun tuner, K&N intake, and Banks exhaust. These are the only changes that I have made to the truck. I run Motorcraft filters and oils and have maintained regular service intervals.
The temp here dips to about twenty degrees at night. I am defiantly not engine savvy at all, but I am learning. I haven’t had the dealer plug into the truck yet for codes; I would like to try and fix this myself if possible (trying to save money). Any help that could be offered would be great and thanks again.
