This was just a thought. I actually experienced this on a Dodge truck, but what I was getting at was to make sure you had the proper fluid in the reservoir.

Just out of curiosity, did you add fluid to your reservoir prior to your having problems? I just experienced this same problem and the culprit was adding transmission fluid to the reservoir instead...

Yea, what do I know, I just put a set on. What you THINK is probably more accurate. To the OP, I'm not gonna lie, it's a pain in the neck to change out the pipes, but there are plenty of tutorials on...

Cranked for about 15 or 20 seconds with the plug out. Didn't even try to start or raise the oil level in the HPOP. Honestly, has me stumped. Guess I will try pulling the LPOP and see if something is...

Sounds like the classic up pipe leaks. Spring for the bellowed ones. I just put a set on my F350 I picked up at O'Reilly's, they are made by Dorman. The quality was very good, much improved over the...

Went to start my 99 F250 this winter to charge the batteries, don't use it often. It started with no issues at about 20 degrees F, and idled for a minute or two, then suddenly died, as if shut off....

With only 13 quarts of oil and the filter empty, you might be too low on oil for it to start. Refill and try again. If it still doesn't start, try jumping it, even if it is turning over good. If its...

I'll chime in here. From what you describe, it's more than likely a sticking caliper. Just had to replace a rear one on my dually. One other thing to look at and rather uncommon, is the rubber brake...

For those not familiar with these pumps, some e99 and later were equipped with a one piece pump, the lower radiator hose extension being cast in. These aren't available any more I don't think. Make...

With the red 99 in my avatar, I routinely pull a 20ft trailer and little excavator, grossing a combined 20K or so. My 00 dually has pulled a combined gross of 30,500 for the last 100k miles prior to...

You said original problem was low oil. What about the fuel? Is your tank 1/2 full or more? If the foot valve in the tank came off (very common) will run out of fuel around 1/4 tank. Or possibly when...

I'll throw this out there FWIW. I just installed the S&B kit with the ram air tube on a newer Dodge. It dropped the EGT's about 200 degrees on the hot tune WOT. Noise was considerably more than...
