Well guys, Im having issues with my 7.3l Diesel. I was driving it Sunday night from around 4-9pm and around 9 o clock i heard a loud bang followed by smaller bangs coming from the engine compartment. Truck Jerked back and forth a few times till i came to a stop and it sounded like it was struggling to stay running. I immediately shut it down to stop further damage. When i heard the bang it sounded like a belt broke and kept hitting the top of the hood. "the loud bang from the belt breaking, and the smaller bangs when the belt continued to hit the hood". I got out and inspected the belts found nothing. All the belts are fine. Started the truck, Heard a loud knock, revved the engine to 2k and it sounded like complete ****. took my foot off the pedal and the truck was struggling to stay running. I shut down the engine and called for a tow. The tow truck driver came got the truck, towed me to my local ford dealer and dropped it off. I get a call from ford after telling them exactly what happened and they tell me everything is perfectly fine. Injectors are perfect, fluids are fine, sensors are fine also. They can't find ANYTHING wrong. I don't know what to do. I know the truck is NOT fine. What should they look for? Its weird how it was running horrible for me after running it for 5 hours. And the next day its perfectly fine. Is it something internal? What should i do! Please help i want my truck back!!!
Thanks for the help in advanced.
