New F250 owner

Hello guys and gals. My name is Jake and I live in East TX. I just recently purchased a 2005 F250 XLT and I love it! Sadly I was only able to drive it for a day before something went wrong and it stopped wanting to crank. :-/ It's being fixed now thank goodness. But figured I would say hi and tell a little about myself.

I live in tyler. Born and raised. I just recently moved back to the area after a 4 year stent in the army. I am still in the National Guard as a Medic and absolutely love my job as a medic. I currently work as a medical assistant for a cardiology group here in east texas and it's fun, but nowhere near the fun that was to be had in the army!

I do come from a family tha has owned multiple F250 Powerstrokes. And I absolutely love them! They are hellaciously powerful workhorses and they dont quit, until I buy one of course...

Anyway. If you have questions etc feel free to post here or message me.

Welcome to the Forum! I have only been on here for a week as a member but I have been reading and stocking for about 5 years.

There's definitely a very knowledgeable group of guys here.

Sound like a FICM issue or a High Pressure oil system issue.

Without knowing more.

Hope they get it fixed quick for you.

Well the issue was starting it...it would crank only when it wanted to lol so they took it to a fors diesel mechanic to look at it...the dealer said it was a fuel injector issue but they will be keeping it till monday...but the issue is that it would turn over but not fire up...and it was randomly that it did it
