Just got my first super duty 7.3 powerstroke
Crappy part is I'm starting to have a few problems and odd characteristics.
First and main thing is this..
I'm smelling fuel but can't tell where it is coming from, and I have a oil spot on my driveway (might be the fuel degreasing my motor?)
Found this little surprise yesterday and it looks like I have copper fuel lines? Should I be super worried about this?
I have a normal work day today so after work I'm going to start to look into this truck's mechanical state..
My brother had a PS SD and his wouldn't turn when he is at a stop and mine won't ether....is there anything I can do to fix that?
The steering wheel is loose in the 9:00 to 11:00 range and ever morning when I back out of my driveway and I turn left backing up the truck makes a lot of noise, it's not a normal PSP wine but cinda.. Any thoughts?
And the last thing,
The PO told me this truck has a very built BTS transmission and upgraded valve body and torque converter and has about 5000 miles on it.
I can tell it's been out of the truck and it's really strong and shifts good, but shifting into drive or reverse it takes a few seconds to engage.
That normal with this type of tranny?
He had a 6position TSperformance tuner on it but sold it before I came along..not sure if that will have anything to do with it...
Any help is greatly appreciated!
