High Pitch squeeling and now sputtering....
Hey ... New to this forum and just bought my first PSD .... i have owned the truck for a week and having problems already. Seeing if anyone could help me out at all...
Just bought an 08' F250 CC .. FX4 .. 192,000 miles.
When I bought the truck the dealer said that it had a small exhaust leak on flex pipe... No biggie.
But This weekend I washed the truck and after letting the truck sit for a bit I started the truck and instantly a high pitch squeal that can be heard anywhere within a block of the truck. took it to a couple small town truck shops and first place said blown Turbo... didnt like the diagnosis and went to the second.. he said its either a belt or tensioner... fine and dandy .. limped the truck back 125 miles to my house and just before i got there i stepped on it to pass a car... squealing wasnt as bad but now i can smell diesel and the truck is sputtering ... anyone have any ideas? Not too fluent on Diesels just yet and dont want to spend $1500-2K right off the bat .... Thanks!
