New to the site... question 99 F350 7.3 liter
History... 99 F350 7.3 liter... purchased it from a one owner 260k miles... I have had it for 10,00 miles.. and have had to replace crank shaft and cam shaft timing sensor..
Warm weather it runs like a champ.. rain comes and it will shut off at a stop sign... and sometimes will skip like its the cam shaft timing sensor again..
During colder air temps it will accelerate fine... then when it gets to running rpm it sounds like the turbo tries to kick it and it bogs.. .I accelerate again and it smooths out.. then when returning to cruise idle it does the same thing...
The previous owner put an aftermarket K&N air filter on it... Can this be the cause for both issues? Will it help if I return to a standard air filter.. I haven't cleaned the K&N yet so that is in the works..
I am a new deisel owner so trying to make sure this trucks lasts me a long time... It is the one I have wanted for years.
Comments welcome... Thanks
