WE just got the engine replaced in my 01 F250 last week with a 160000 mile engine. We used the injectors and glow plugs from the old engine which had them replaced with the valve cover gaskets 2000 miles ago. The old engine had 1 cylinder with 120 PSI lower compression than the rest. Dealer had found a cracked hose between the air cleaner and turbo. It started using about a quart of oil to 300 miles and had a bad miss and a lot of blowby out of the oil cap in the valve cover. And a lot of exhaust smoke.
This engine had a miss too after we got it running and found a bad IDM module, (2nd one in 6 months, both from NAPA and it's under warranty) It seems to have a shake when standing still in drive or reverse. Also some blue smoke out of exhaust at idle and bad smelly exhaust. I don't see much smoke going down the road unless you really nail it. Also seems to have a little too much blowby out of the valve cover too. The bad thing is my old engine did this too. The turbo is from the engine I bought. I drove it about 25 miles this afternoon and the service engine light flashed a few times. Found a 1316 code.
Any ideas on the shake and smoke? Maybe needs a few miles put on it. It hasn't run for 2 years or so.
Well, the guy I bought the engine from told me to get the compression tested at the Ford dealer. They checked the right bank and got 225, 250, 350, and 400. No need to test the rest! I got my money back from him for the engine. Thinking about getting my original engine rebuilt and swapping them again, maybe.
Added 2 quarts in 700 miles now.
