2010 F250, Runs Poor In Rain, With a Twist.
I lurk more than I post. However, I have come upon a problem.
My truck began to run poorly in the rain. I never saw any white smoke, however it drove like a Gas car with a plugged catalitic converter. It fit the bill of the TSB that is all over the place about a intercooler.
However, Ford checked and I have the most current intercooler. I pulled the upper intercooler charge hose ( cold side ) and it is full of water. It has enough water in it that it is causing my aftermarket boost gauge to read crazy ( I am tapped into the metal hose ).
They did a pressure test on the intercooler and it comes back ok. They read me a line about a TSB with following to close in the rain and making the air filter plugged. So today in the rain, when it acted up, I stopped and pulled the filter. It is dry.
They are offering to replace the intercooler, as I am sure that this is what the problem is. However, I am losing my faith here.
Anyone care to comment.
