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.
