Clutch slip and other problems
Hi everybody, been reading on here for a while but just decided to join.
Ok my dad has a 99 f350 7.3 6spd. He bought about 6months ago and it looks brand new with almost 70k on it. It has a banks chip, exhaust, and big head actuator. One day i was driving it to the air port and when i floored it and it pulled hard for a few seconds then fell on its nose and accelerated very slow. Now ever since when ur cruising at about 60 and floor it it does about the same thing. It seems like the rpms climb a little faster then the speed right before it does it so my question is if the cltuch was sliping would it defuel itself?
Another problem is about a month after we bought it the check engine light came on and it says P1396 bank 2 glow plugs module or something like that. we tested the main power wire and it pulls about the right amount of amps(dont remeber how many) so it seems like all the glow plugs are working. ive heard that this is a glitch in the 99 manuals, is that true?
and the last question for now is we had it at the dealer for the CPS recall and after we picked it up it gaves a code for cam over advance. we took it back to the dealer and they said they only found the 1396 and a code for PCM memory failure. any ideas here?
i know its alot to read but thanks for any advice
P.S. my dads gettin tired of the problems and i dont want him to sell it so please help
