2000 Powerstroke Loss of Power and change in engine "tone"
Looking to get some advice from the Pros on this great site. I have had my 2000 F350 for 5 years now and have had very little trouble from the truck. I bought it with 80K and now has 230K. Lately I have had a problem with the truck losing power when accelerting. It is intermitent and usually happens just after taking of at a stop sign etc. The truck will lose a lot of power and accelerate very slowly for a couple of seconds and then suddenly snap back to normal. When it loses power the engine also gets very quiet and dosesn't chatter like it normally does. It doesn't jerk or act goofy, it just accelerates very slowly and smoothly even with the pedal on the floor and then like I said it snaps back to normal and takes off. I am nothing of a diesel mechanic and only know of basic maitenance etc. so go easy on me. This has been the best truck I have ever owned and really don't want to buy another. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jason
