First post, figured I'd introduce myself and then ask for help
My truck is a 2005 F250 4X4 with automatic and 256k miles.
I've only had it a few months. this is my first Powerstroke (first Ford, actually, in a long number of years).
I've had Cummins and an old GM 6.5.
Anyway I now own a Ford and need help with it.
I have no clue the previous history of the truck.
I do know it has an egr delete (really odd, since a bulletproof EGR was tossed in the back).
I did a blue spring kit as well as a Sinister Diesel air charge tube and boot.
Previous owner said it had a rebuilt standard oil cooler and turbo.
It also has had the cat removed.
Going by what I can see, it's been seriously worked on before but no clue as to what was done other than what I said.
That's the extent of my knowledge of it.
Now for issues
4X4 doesn't work. It's the electronic one with the switch on the dash. Light doesn't come on and the shift motor doesn't engage. It's missing the vacuum lines to the front axle, but I plugged them and figured if I needed 4X4, I'd just lock in the hubs manually (assuming I figure why the transfer case isn't engaging). That should be ok, right?
It's lately started stalling while going down the road. If I'm going fast enough, sometimes it will restart by itself. if not then not.
On rare occasions, I can start it again. Usually, not.
I did use ether twice and that worked, but I don't like using it.
I got the Torque pro app for my phone, after watching a very knowledgeable guy on youtube (I think his name was Ron, but can't remember. I know he was very good at explaining the powerstroke).
Checked the powerstroke pid thingies against what he said they should be and ICP volts showed 2.7.
After extensive research (for an old, computer illiterate guy) I cannot find anything about the volts being too much.
On the off chance that it could be the pigtail, I ordered one (they're cheap) and it should be in tomorrow.
As far as IPOP, FICM voltage, etc, they were all good. But then, Ron said if the ICP volts were off, then they wouldn't be correct.
Thoughts and/or suggestions?
Sorry, typo'd the header. It's a 2005 model
