My early 99 V10 would make a rattling sound (like marbles spinning around)
from the torque converter as it shifted, especially when cold. Never had it
looked at because I traded the truck in. It wasn't pinging from the engine.
If your sound is in fact detonation, then something's wrong with the
computer because it should retard timing to stop engine damage.

Subject: Banks chip?

Recently I asked a question about fuel mileage on Diesels and one of you fine
fellows said with the "Banks chip" he was getting outstanding mileage. I am
familiar with Gale Banks and the turbo/exhaust kits they offer, but I can't
find anything on any chip. Sounds interesting. Any details?
thanks James

There's a small pic of it on Banks' web site
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.bankspower.com/GBford.html But I know my friend was got just
under 22mpg from NC to NY a few weeks back coming home from Rockingham
Dragway. My chip arrived yesterday and we're putting it in tonight. I
should crack 1,000 miles on my truck today and I've had it a week and have
just filled up for the second time. First tank was showing 14mpg so between
the motor breaking in and the chip, I should see a decent improvement. NOTE
: This is 90% highway mileage.....

The recommended 88. Have used better, no difference.

Stone stock.

We like to think of it as "nice".

Subject: V-10 Ping (Normal? I don't think so. . .)

Marv: Only thing I can tell you is my personal experience. I have a V-10 in
my 1999 F-350 Crewcab, SRW, longbed, auto trans, Lariot, 3.55 limited slip
diff. Took delivery on 7/28/98 and just turned 30,000 this week. I use
regular grade gas (mileage is 11.5 to 15.5 mpg) and have never noticed any
pinging at shift points or otherwise. The truck is used for my four mile
commute to work every day as well as two hundred mile business trips once
week (on average) and long haul trips from middle Georgia to Kentucky, North
Carolina, Ohio and/or Pennsylvania several times a year. Generally, truck
has only a modest load on it compared to its capacity. The only way to
describe the truck's performance to date is "flawless". I would have a hard
time accepting the idea that pinging (which is, I believe, an engine's way of
telling us that it is committing slow suicide) is "normal". /Mark

Subscribed to ask a question. 999, V-10, pings a lot just before shift
points. Dealer says "normal". I'd like
to say BS, but not if it is, indeed, "normal". Anybody know the straight
stuff? >>

Subject: PSD Newbie Question...
Date: Wed, 5 Apr 2000 09:31:59 -0400

Since diesel's are a whole new game to me and I'm still learning I had a
question I think I know the answer to, but wanted to be sure.

80% of my PSD's time is spent as a commuter vehicle doing about 100 miles a
day round trip, averaging about 70-75mph at around 2200-2500rpm's.

Since the diesel's operating range is lower than that of a normal gas
engine, I was wondering what -if any- problems could occur from the
prolonged rpm's?

I know for the most part diesel's are made to last significantly longer and
'real' trucks cruise for 100's of miles at a time, but I wasn't sure what
rpm's they're turning.

I know the mileage I drive isn't an issue, but was curious whether I should
be slowing it down a bit, or if that was a safe 'cruising' rpm range....

Thanks....

P
