Been w/o my baby for the better part of 6 LONG WEEKS, 1st was some front end damage from
a fender bender, then after getting her back after 3 weeks I litterally drove her round trip about 220 miles and 5 miles from home she died on me, no limp mode ir nuttin' just crank w/ good turn over byt what seemed like a fuel or compression leaking problem. Took my truck to Miami on a flat bed to my main mech, (Felix @ OUTLAW DIESEL Miami.com) We tried the fuel pump between the driver side frame rail, then the crank position sensor, NOT Cam Position Sensor/ "Crank". All to no avail and no relatively GOOD codes pulled on the ODBII Scan tool (Ford Specific). At conclusion a new HPOP and multiple O-Rings were replaced throughout the internal part of the engine and all cast components were checked to hold pressure due to possible Fracture asssoc with the front end crash.
Finally got my truck back on the 22nd of Sept.
Then on the 23rd of Sept. in the A.M. with me takining it easy on her, havin' been in a bazillion pieces two days ago.
I am on my way to the Local Car Wash to get her cleaned up. When a Burgyndy F250 Crew Cab SB is side by side with me at the Light. The light changes and this Guy Floors his truck and after leaving me 3-4 truck lengths behind he slows down like he showed me who's the MAN and all.
So as usuall I cannot resist, I do all I can to be first in line side by side with him at the next light. I go into 4x4 High , I Spool my turbo to 20-25 PSI and when the light changes I let go when his rear tire is at my passenger Door, Needless to say within 40 yards I had two full truck lengths on him. That's when he gave up. Needless to say that my truck held togeher during all that undue stress , like a champ, and even though I had to school a brother FORD owner the grin on my face after being without my truck for six LONG weeks was as they say PRICELESS.....
