03 f250 icp sensor????
So... Yesterday I noticed that my coolant level looked a little low. When I cranked it yesterday I noticed some white smoke. Just on cold start. This morning I tried to check the egr valve, but couldn't get it to pop loose. ( my first thought was the egr cooler had cracked and was leaking coolant into the manifold). Not having time to fart with before work this morning, I brought it to ford and paid them the $100 diagnostic fee to check it out. They couldn't find a leak in the coolant system, but said it was loosing pressure. They recommended changing the degas bottle and cap. I went to advanced auto parts and bought a new cap for 4.99. Figured I would start there.
Ford also said they were getting an erratic code for the icp sensor and connector which they recommend I change. They want $800 for parts and labor.?.?.?. They said this caused the injectors to over fuel, creating the white smoke.
My question to you is, how big of a pain in the *** is it to change the sensor and connector on a 03" f250? What do I need to know about this process?
