hi guys im kind of new to the diesel scene and defently new to the site
im having a little bit of a problem with a truck i just bought
its a 2008 f-350 crew cab 6.4l 180k miles
doesnt seem to have any mods
i picked it up on thursday last week from a local dealer which seemed to have gotten it from an action in texas since i do have its car fax and it had its regular maintance done there.
my father has the same truck but with 103k miles and i do his maintance oil changes mainly.
so naturaly i did my oil change, oil and filter and both diesel filters
i primmed the fuel system to get rid of a much air as possible before i cranked it up.
it cranked up fine for about 10 seconds when it died out first thing i thought was o boy didnt prime it enough. so did it a couple of times and turned it on again no problem. i did noticed when the car died a small wrench appeared on the display.
i was driving the truck after all this and noticed i have about half power i thinks its called limp mode. i figured it had to do with the fuel system. no check engine light that hole day. the next day no problem truck had full power no issues till about 30 minutes into the drive i stepped on it and no power again i figured i was on limp mode again... but this time the check engine light went on
since i have no tuner or anything i went the my local car shop discount auto parts and got a code reader and it read p0088 Rail/System Pressure - Too High.... i reset the code figuring maybe it was some dirt or something got the sensor. it hasnt came on again. but i am still on limp mode till i turn the car off then back on
Ps. i did noticed a sight glass with coolant in it and it seems to be low. could this cause the problem ??
and i have never had this problem with my fathers truck
thank you in advance for all you help
and sorry for any ignorance on my part.
