fuel gage misreading fuel level
well, here goes...
bought an 04 f350 crew psd with 94,000 miles july 1, 07.
since purchase have had it diagnosed at 2 different ford dealers for issues.
it will run like crap under 1/4 tank of fuel, it gets hard to start, etc. after about 1/8 tank of fuel the truck wil start to shudder and loose power while driving, if you don;t get fuel right then, you better be prepared to walk. i'ts left me walking twice now.
ford dealer number one diagnosed an egr issue and possible injector issue, but wanted 100 bucks to go further to cover the diesel warentee deductible.
ford dealer number 2 said it is low fuel pressure caused by the fuel pickup sucking in air. they said they think my sending unit is reading off by about 1/8 of a tank and they can;t tell me for sure until they drop the tank and they wanted 750 for the parts and labor to replace the sending unit. they said it is not covered under the diesel coverage.
thats just the start of my headaches with this truck...i purchased it from a chevy dealer and so far i have been told that collectivly between the estimates for all repairs from both ford dealers that it needs about 3,250 worth of repairs. the chevy dealer agreed to fix 1,100 worth and said thats all they could find wrong.
anyway has anyone else had issues with a fuel sender being incorrect like mine is?
