OH NO, my new F-250 is starting to have "issues"!!
Bought a leftover 2011 F-250 Lariat 6.7 last spring brand new, its got about 10k miles now and up until about 8k miles was amazing, great power, mileage, acceleration, it made my 12v cummins really seem like a tractor. Anway, at about 8k, it started feeling like it wa in tow haul mode all the time (and i do not do any heavy towing), the clutch fan seems to run wide open (Sounds like a jet engine, the mileage is dropping around 2-3 mpg. The tranny doesn't feel like it shifts hard, it just feels like its holding itself in gear too long, and the fact that the once quiet motor now sounds like a jet turbine when you take off is kind of concerning. Took it to the dealer this week, no error codes, but I told them this is NOT the same truck I bought a year ago. They said it's not going to drive like it did when you got it! Now how would any truck owner take that, what kind of answer is that? Has anyone had any symptoms like mine, or have any recommendations on what it could be? Thanks.
