Newbie here. great website I have found. I dont feel so alone anymore!
Just yesterday RPMs jumped slightly and the Truck jumped/ lunged forward enough for me to notice. We bought this used about a month ago and have not yet had any problems. I was going to take it this weekend to have an oil change/fuel filter/oil filter change. But I am heading to dealer tonight! I know its not much info for you guys but is there any thoughts ? Truck seems to have plenty of power even though the Excursion is one heavy beast. The CEL did come on of course if that helps ?
I bought this for my wife to haul around our two kids and dogs and travel with. She babies this Truck and does not drive it like a 16 year old male might...
I am certainly not experienced like you guys but love the diesel for durability/strength and longivity..or so I thought??
Anywords from you fellas ?
Year and miles would help. Well to start with you can not baby these trucks or you will have trouble the EGR valve will plug up on you and the vains in the turbo will stick so about everyother week after it warms up you have to drive it like you stole it, and you need to use a cetane boost in the fuel to help keep thing clean and do not idle them to long and only use Ford filters
These 6.0 need gauges or you can get into trouble.
