Couple questions. First PSD. Wash engine? Owners manual? RPM range? OD?
Just got my first diesel here. Pretty excited. Had a bunch of axle work down including all new axle and hub seals, front and rear, rear brakes, ball joints, diff fluid change, alignment and my pocketbook is low. 99 F-250 build date of 1/99.
Where can I find an owners manual just get the basics?? Found some gas versions on the internet, but not the diesel version. Suggestions for a better service manual as well? Haynes is just all gas/diesel combined from like 99-2005 or something.
My auto tranny shifts from 2-3rd at about 2300 RPMs. Seems a little high. Is this normal?
I have diesel fuel kicking up on the battery and some components. It seems that whoever cleaned the engine doused the thing is diesel fuel and didn't clean it off well because we can't find a leak anywhere. I found a couple pools but it keeps happening. Mechanic told me I should take it to a car wash, pop open the hood, hose it down with tire cleaner, and then soap it up and rinse if off??? Is this okay? What should I do? Just the block? Parts I should avoid?
I have only tried this once, because I can't afford to bust this here and I cant get this fixed right now, but I was going about 65mph and I pushed the O/d button and the rpms revved up to close to 3k!! I quickly pushed it back off and it went back to normal. Issues?
