'97 F350 7.3 Running Strange?
For those of you that saw my previous thread I did follow through and trade my 99 F250 SD 7.3l for a 97 OBS F350 7.3l crew cab dually.
I started her up today and it "romped" a few times. I got some white smoke, it was around 50 degrees outside. The white smoke cleared up a little after a short drive, but I could still see a bit of haze coming from the exhaust.
Truck sounds like it is running good after the romping stops, and it drives smooth until 3rd and 4th gear come around. In 3rd gear the truck seems to shutter a little bit, it seems to get worse with a load. This "shutter" isn't bad but it is noticeable.
Transmission doesn't seem to be slipping at all but it does shift a little hard from 1st to 2nd and sometimes to 3rd.
What is going on?
