3 dealers no solution Need serious help.!!
So it's my boss's truck. 2008 f350 king ranch 4x4., 6.4 l of course.
Here is the problem. Truck runs and drives perfect. Let it idle for a minute or two and it starts shaking bad. Shut it off and restart it and it runs fine. Doesn;'t do it every time either. Very random. Only codes are bal/cont #1 and #2 and random misfire codes.
Now the first dealer charged him 300 dollars and told him nothing wrong with truck. Change your filters. So he did. Same problem.
Second dealer charged him 1600.00 dollars and replaced injector #1. He went to pick up truck and it runs so rough it won;t even move. Same dealer charges another 1000.00 and replaces injector #2. Truck still has same problem. Dealer won;t help to fix it. Says pay more money and we'll look again.
Third dealer charges 400.00 and says it needs 2 injectors. #1 and #2. Boss says no it doesn;t they were just changed at dealer #2. So service manager says i'll call you back. He calls back and says motor is blown. He can replace it for 24000.00. Boss says how come it's only blown sometimes and runs perfect other times? Also asked him why he first said it needed 2 injectors. Needless to say the service guy got upset and said nothing he can do.
Now has anyone had a problem similar to this and know what the problem is.
One of the dealers had some sort of graph running when the truck would idle rough and it showed #2 dropping out. Restart truck and it's fine.
Sorry for long post but he needs help bad.
