After a 3rd trip to the dealer for this same issue they have decided to replace the DPF sensor. One of the trips they reset the codes and reprogrammed the PCM... It barely made it around the block...

Check engine light has come back on today. May drive it for a while in hopes that the dealer can find a hard fault when I take it in next week. Hopefully they will do something this time. At least...

Having the oil changed right now back to the 5w-40. It's -16 today - so out of the recommended range. Sure it will run fine with the 15w. But a 5w is a better fit in my opinion. No check engine...

Update - the cel has not come back on yet. But fuel economy is down and the exhaust smells really "skunky". Especially on a cold start. If I start it in the garage with the door open the garage will...

Dealer woes - CEL and oil change

So my f-550 had a check engine light on so we booked it in at the dealer. They booked it for an oil change (since the last one was 8-9 months ago) even though it only had 1000 km (600 miles) on the...

The van has been good so far with the V10! No complaints. I haven't had a good drive in it yet due to the roads (slushy) and this is a company vehicle that someone else drives. I either drive my...

I think I will appreciate the 400lbs less over the front axle, the extra 70HP, and extra gearing (4.56 vs 4.10 or 4.30 - I can't remember what the old one has). I really don't think that I will miss...

We use the f550 for towing a telehandler. It's pretty low mileage too. But when it gets used it is really used. Towing a minimum of 30k lbs.

Another 6.0L to V10 convert

I have a new 2013 E-450 2V V10 with 4.56 gears coming next week. It is currently having a box put on it. It will be replacing my 2004 E-450 with the 6.0L diesel. That cube van has been so unreliable!...

I have the 4.30 gears in mine. It will pull damn near anything I'm sure. 4.88's are overkill for this engine. You want lower rpms as power drops off quickly the higher you rev it. The transmission...

Just got the truck back. It had codes P2463 and P2452. They cleared the codes and did a manual regeneration on the truck. We'll see if it lasts. Hope it doesn't leave us stranded the next few days as...

Chassis cab issue after recall

I just had the 12b34 recall done on my 6.7 F-550. It was fine for a weekend but after a trip to and from the lake I got the "drive to clean exhaust" message on the screen. It stayed on. It has never...

Rough Idle 2005 5.4

My brother has a 2005 F150 FX4 5.4L with 3.73 gears. It has been in the family since new and has always had the correct oil in it and changed at the appropriate intervals.

It runs well but seems...

The smaller the sidewall (to a point) the better it will handle. The HD trucks have different shocks which allow it to ride smoothly with the 22" rubber band tires. Stiffer shocks and lighter...
