'05 6.0 question

My '05 P/S has developed a "whine" or "wheeze" noise that seems to be coming from the drivers side of the engine compartment close to the firewall. This noise is short in duration and intermittent. It sounds sort of like air being sucked past a loose hose connection, and only starts under load above 1500 rpms and not at all at idle. Any suggestions.

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone here for leaving onfo and writing threads. I gained enough info here at the org that I was able to fix my truck's noise problem. Turns out that the noise I was hearing was the coolant system bleeding off pressure (and puking coolant). Stealership wanted $100 just to diagnose, but with the info I got from here, I was able to solve the problem with a $4.30 degass bottle cap from my local O'Rielly. Oh, and one more thing........BOOMER SOONER!!!

dealership woulda diagnosed it as a blown turbo or motor problem......hand over your title and $1000 cash and they'll leave your rectum only slightly stretched!

believe it or not....I do that ALOT! I dont feel right charging someone to tell them whats wrong unless I have to tear down a bike motor or something very involved like that. The shop I dealt with regularly built a business based on doing the diagnosis for free and writing the estimate off of that. To the customer they saved $100 versus the dealer, to the shop, they insured the work would be done there! Its all in how you look at it. But personally I haven't had ANY GOOD luck at a dealership yet, for autos or motorcycles.....especially when recalls were to be performed! It was like my recalled vehicle was a nuisance!

not saying YOU should donate your time, but I often feel that if I bought your bosses vehicle (boss meaning Ford) and I haven't done anything to change it from stock, it should be looked at for free, then charged for repair.

just to clear up the way its done at MOST ford dealers is there is an initial diag fee , if the job is bought then the diag is inlcuded in the price of the repair, only if the customer doesnt want to fix and time has been spent to diag do they get charged , to me thats fair , and of course there is no charge for a warranty repair other than the deductible if over 36,000 miles but what this has to do with the original question in this thread im not sure but lets get , glad your truck got fixed with a radiator cap , they have given some problems , but alot of them dont make noise like that, you still may want to keep your eyes o the coolant , usually the cap just doesny go bad there is usually another reason

Sorry Scuffy

You are right. I just take it personally when techs and dealers start getting slammed. Just because someone had a problem at one dealership doesnt mean we are all crooks. I know that after I post this a follow up post will be made about how it wasnt aimed at me or other techs, just one in general. People need to take that into consideration before they post. As for the diag time you are correct. Just that STEALER gets me a lil wound up. I'll let you get back to your paper work and I'll get back to my egr cooler.
