I'm new to this site and relatively new to the diesel scene. But figure I should get on here and introduce myself maybe get some help with my rig.
Names Jon.. I work in the oilfield I have only owned 2 diesel trucks ever and both were fords. I have ha numerous company trucks that were fords... I just bought this truck and i have some issues with it. Let me give you a run down
2001 f250 lariat short bed 4x4
Truck has some mods here comes the list
4" downpipe 5" exhaust 6" tip(all mbrp brand)
Diesel site rubber connector boots.
Upgraded tranny cooler(can't remember the btu off hand)
8" lift(skyjacker brand I believe)
Fab tech pitman arm
20" xd diesel wheels in satin black
35x12.5x20 nitto trail grappler m/t
Truck also had a modified turbo(1.0 a/r exhaust housing no wastegate and wicked wheel compressor from beans diesel) and superchip tuner but both were removed when the issues arose I have them but wanna fix the issues before reinstalling
I bought the truck for 10.5k it's in awesome condition I fell in love when I saw it had to have it. Truck smokes blue(burning oil) once it warms up. Starts without hesitation every time.
I was told by previous owner that he ha the truck scanned by ford and that the scan showed number 8 injector was bad but that all injectors passed the"buzz" test which I was told is a compensation test? The truck did have a noticeable fuel"knock" on the driver side bank With this info I put the truck under and replaced the number 8 injector and driver side injector harness with a factory reman injector to see if that in fact was the issue... Turns out that is not. With the new injector installed the fuel knock is gone on driver side bank. I believe there is another injector bad on the passenger side also. It is still smoking blue. More so at idle than anything else. Also if I run the truck on the highway or stay in the throttle for too long the trick bogs down has no power and revs very slow but no increase in smoke or change in color of smoke. Almost like it goes into limp mode but no check engine light either... I'm leaning torwards a mixture of bad injector(s) and possibly worn turbo seals. The turbo currently on it is a used turbo supposedly with only 60k on it but it was just sitting in the shop out on a shelf... Also the inlet pipe that connects the turbo and the intake is broken right were the pipe clamps to the turbo I couldn't find one in town so I took the previous owners duck tape off and epoxied it back together and then wrapped some high heat tape around it for kind of a temp bandage idk how well it is working..
I work alot out of town so the truck is sitting at home and im just kinda kicking ideas around wanting to get a handle on it. It's kind of a project type thing but I'd like to get it eunnig asap into daily driver status. Cause driving my company truck around does get old... Btw company truck is a 2011 f250. Scorpion
. I do like that truck lol
Hopefully I gave enough details let's see what you guys come up with.
