Getting a new belt and idler pulley today at lunch. started up the truck and the belt was squeaking A LOT. no slipping or burning but it had squeaked every now and then past few days and this morning she said nope lol.

kind of interesting though.... second oem motorcraft belt and tensioner in little under 3 yrs.... both for my truck with single alt and cold weather package. I checked all pulleys as best as I can so I probably got coolant or oil on it when I did the oil cooler re seal couple months ago. Oh well it's only money right???

It's not really what I've done today, but more of what I've noticed about my F-250. This truck is within a few hundred miles of breaking 300K, I put the 86 spring in a week or so back, and when I crank her up it's getting louder, she runs fine and the sound at idle is normal, just that cranking sound is getting louder, any ideas???? Is it the added fuel pressure??? Or is it just because she is getting old and these are the original injectors??

Clarify louder; i.e. the injector cackle is more pronounced, engine is just roaring louder during idle or?

It's only when I crank it on start up, it's got a loud "knocking" sound, but it sounds fine when running

most likely the injector at the milage esp the infamous number 8. SUPPOSEDLY there is a fix called the fuel crossover line that equalizes fuel pressure in the heads but reviews seem rather 50/50 so I never wasted the time or money. but at 250k+ your injectors are on the way out. archoil ar9100 oil addative or a good synthetic oil does quiet it down some. until you replace them etc. I noticed it a lot on my current 1999. im running the new 15w-40 t6 full synthetic and it smoothed out the injector knock quite a bit for me at least.

The parking break doesn't alwasy fully set when I push it down--it sometimes just pops right back up like it did before taking it in. Will see what happens in the next day or two. Also am keeping an eye on the rear wheels to see if any fluid gets on them.
DON'T WAIT.....TAKE IT BACK RIGHT AWAY.....MAYBE THEY LEFT SOMETHING LOOSE IN THERE CAUSING YOUR CURRENT PROBLEM.....

Having a manual I just leave it in gear but wish it functioned so I could trust leaving it in neutral and idle during the summer heat. Instead, I just keep a short piece of an old 8x8 post I use as a chock.
FROM THE DAY I BOUGHT MY TRUCK.....THE PARKING BRAKE NEVER WORKED.....

JUST LIKE YOURS.....MINE DOES NOT HOLD.....I PLAN ON CHANGING MY PARKING BRAKE SHOES LATER THIS MONTH.....I DID LOOK AT THE BACKING PLATES TO CHECK FOR RUST THE OTHER DAY.....AND THEY LOOKED FINE.....

MY TRUCK HAS FAIRLY NEW REAR CALIPERS.....HOWEVER.....THE REAR ROTORS NEED TO BE REPLACED.....SO.....I WILL ORDER THOSE NEXT WEEK.....

I ALREADY HAVE THE PARKING BRAKE SHOES AND SPRING KIT.....I JUST HAVE TO ORDER THE INNER (HUB) AND OUTER (AXLE) SEALS AND A BOTTLE OF FLUID (GEAR OIL).....

B-T-W.....I HAVE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS ABOUT DOING THE PARKING BRAKES:....

1).....SINCE I WILL BE ADDING ONLY A FEW OUNCES OF FLUID.....DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHAT TYPE OF FLUID (GEAR OIL) I SHOULD GET?....

2).....I WATCHED A FEW VIDEOS ON DOING THIS JOB.....AND SOME OF THEM USE AXLE GREASE ON THE HUB AND BEARINGS BEFORE RE-INSTALLING.....AND SOME DON'T.....SINCE THESE BEARINGS ARE LUBRICATED VIA THE GEAR OIL IN THE REAREND.....SHOULD I USE AXLE GREASE ON THEM DURING RE-ASSEMBLY?....OR JUST LEAVE THEM AS THEY ARE?....

THANKS.....

Changed the belt and the idler pulley. Mine was not bad but you could see where grease had been thrown in the inside like a star pattern so I replaced it anyways. Belt still looked brand new but less than 20k miles on it too. I just have gotten coolant or oil on it by accident.

Oh well now that pulley is set for another 20 yrs 😉
