Can any one of you techs give me an idea of what i am looking at for repairs.
I have an 07 F350 CC 4X4 Harley Edition. It has approxitmately 97600 miles. I am not the original owner. I thought Ford has a factory warranty of 100000 on the motor.
here is a list of some of the issues i have been having....
1. intermitten no start, chuggs for a lil bit then shuts down finally after awhile and a few times trying it starts. also intermittently from a stop take off is really slow until it appears to me to have enough fuel then takes off. changed oil, filter, both fuel filters and verified FICM key on engine off 47.7 volts engine running 48.7 volts. I have read all the posts on here i can possibly read and it appears it can be the HPOP, stand pipes or rail plugs leaking. Also it may be the LPOP ( i have read on here where the lifter needle bearings have come out and ruined the LPOP).
2. It appears to me that both the front and rear engine seals are leaking.
3. I get a chirp or a screech when i initially start up after it has been sitting for a little while or overnight. it only lasts for about a second then stops and the engine then sounds like it is loading so to speak. it sounds like the turbo. maybe running dry then when the oil is fed to it, it stops? I pulled the intercooler hoses on both sides cleaned and reinstalled. i pulled the turbo intake and filter. i spun the turbo it doesn't free spin like i would expect it to, stops after a couple revs. when i move it up and down it seems too much travel to me. couldn't really tell on lateral movement.
what do you think the possible problems are? are these all covered under the warranty? if so how much am i looking to pay? if not how much am i looking to pay?
Im tight on funds so i haven't got me a dianostic tool. when i do get one which one is the best for reading all parameters?
