i got a 97 f350 power stroke and i think its not doing to well. Every Morning so far for the last 4 weeks ive had to spray it with ether to fire it up on the first start up of the morning. I live in central Florida so its right around 75 - 80 degrees when i go to crank it.
Fuel mileage has also took a ****. I aint been keeping track of it lately but i no when i go 50 miles and suck a half of tank with no ideal time there is definitely something wrong there. I aint checked compression because i kinda already no what my results will probably be and with 230k on the ticker i dont see how this is already happening.
Next im thinking about dropping a cummins in it if the truck is blowed up but its a single cab with no so much room so if i got this route i think i would like to make it a 4 door long bed. anyone no how hard it will be to convert?
