2008 F-250/Loud Rumble When I Let Off The Gas
Hi everyone. Thanks in advance for your help. I bought my first diesel - a 2008 F-250 6.4 PSD a week ago. It is completely stock - including the tire sizes.
I drove it home from where I bought it, covering nearly 1000 miles, and it performed flawlessly - other than the "Drain Fuel Seperator" light coming on. I took it to my local Ford dealership. They told me that "only a bit of crud" came out, and that they would have to replace the whole seperator. They had to order the part. No biggie.
BUT HERE IS THE PROBLEM. Yesterday, I was running errands, driving on a level, paved road @40 MPH. I let my foot off the gas, and I heard a loud sound - sort of like a scraping/grinding noise coming from the front passenger side. The noise went away when I stepped on the accelerator again, but it came right back when I laid off the fuel. I looked in the wheel well and under the truck for foreign objects, but found nothing. Any thoughts? Thanks, Paul
