Subject: Loss of power when cold

I have a 1997 F350 Crew Cab 4x4 Powerstroke.  In the mornings there are times
when it has no power.  I cannot go any faster than 40 mph until something
happens.  I can hear a slight hiss from behind the firewall on the passenger
side.  It has no power for a short time and then something happens and it has
full power.  Feels like a relay kicks in or out or a sensor activates.  I
have had it to the shop 4 times and they tell me it is normal.  The truck has
36,000 miles on it and it did not do this for the first 30,000 miles so it is
not normal.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Steve C

Sounds like the preheater valve in the exhaust is stuck closed.  This is the
same valve that the Western Diesel Turbo Brake uses.  It is supposed to help
your motor warm up more quickly.  However, if its stuck closed, it would be
like driving a gas engine with a blocked converter.  My '99 equipped with
the Turbo Brake hisses like mad when its on... Glen

The (No)Goodyear 245 75R16 tires that came on my 1999 F250 LD; SB; 4X4; 5.4v8 are out of round and causing imbalance.  I am thinking of replacing them with a Toyo tire either a:

Toyo Transpath s/u 265 75R16 or;
Toyo M-606 245 75R16

Has anyone got any opinions of Toyo tires?
Are the Michelin tires better?
Will changing from a 245 to a 265 size tire affect:  gas mileage or performance?

Thanks,
Ian...
