Still chasing a no power problem.
I bought this 2000 F250 a few weeks ago, and it just seems down on power. When I drive it unloaded, it seems fine for the most part, but it does not pull my boat well, which is maybe 7000 lbs.
For example, I was driving down the interstate with the boat in tow, and pulled into the left hand lane to go around a car as we started up a slight hill. I put the pedal on the floor, and the truck would not accelerate any as I was going uphill. It wasn't until I crested the hill, that's was able to accelerate to 70 mph.
So I changed the fuel filter, which was pretty dirty, and didn't get much change. I hooked a boost gauge up, and it goes to 10 psi as I first floor it, and it makes 14 lbs as it goes to redline, and drops back to 10 lbs at each shift. I haven't changed the oil, but it looks clean. The compressor wheel looks to be in good shape, and there's no play in the shaft.
The truck is 100% bone stock. where do I go from here?
