f350 if it can't be fixed recycle it
I have been on the s site before, but i give a little background.
Truck- 2002 F350 Crew dually, 4x4, 7.3L, Auto, 4.10 rear gear.
Milage 135000 KM's or 84000 aprox miles.
Mods- 4" turbo back bullydog dual exhaust, Hypertec programer, 70,90,120 primaryly on 70hp, K&N Ram air kit.
Problems- started at 90000 km's 1.5 years ago cracked injector cup, 3 months past engine warrenty, 3500$ my pocket, Ford 0$. Ford won't do a thing to help.
Since then I have had the following
Symptoms that NO ONE can fix- rough idle, Shake at 1250rpm up through the rpm band, hard starting, consistant miss or hammerlike sound. Lack of power ( bad). Very audiable out the exhaust. It sound like Chat. Embarasing to drive.
What it sounds like to me is Valve, valve spring , lifter, cam shaft or piston. ??? Has the same frequency as on of the above
What's been checked. Injectors ok checked twice, Fuel pressure ok, compression ok, HPOP ok, electrical resistance ok,Milage is lower ( winter wheather considered) and under load computer test ? ok
According to the tech there is nothing wrong with my truck as per the stinkin computer, Says it is a product of the exhaust, however I know that I pulling a 16 foot enclosed trailer ( and shouldn't even feel it behind me ),with a few woodworking tools inside ( basicly no weight at all ). So if the computer doesn't read it it don't exist ?
This last year I have hated every day that I had to pull a trailer, I could hook a harness to my back and pull it faster myself.
Has ANYONE had anything like this to them. Any suggestions
Need to fix this beast. Can't trade with it running like this.
I like the Superduty, but I am tempted not to replace it with another.
