New to the Forum

Hello, my name is Troy and I just purchased a 06 Ford f250 diesel. It's ingreat shape with 86,000 miles and has lots of extras already installed. I have many questions that I would like someone to answer if they would.

When I accel hard then let up fast, there is a flapping noise from under the hood.??

When ambient temp is below 40 deg., trans does not shift unless I let up on throttle until engine warms up, then it shifts fine.

I have driven a Jeep for the last 10 years so if someone could explain the front auto hubs to me, it would be great. This truck has aftermarket rims with center caps that don't leave access to hubs. Is this a problem?

Thanks for any help anybody might give...

Flapping= turbo letting air out not a problem

shifting issue is ok, it will run different in cold weather to heat itself up faster

auto hubs lock automatically by vacuum

the flapping noise may be your egr valve... do alot of reading about your 6oh so you know what to prepare for or fix before it happens!

Secondly the trans shifting slower sounds normal in the cold, they use all the gears in the cold, that you wont notice while warm, its strange i know.

Dont know bout 4x4 stuff sorry.
