Yes Review Date: 16th June, 2003. Nothing mechanical has gone wrong with her. Disconnect the fuel heater, replace fuse, re-try start. It has been an awesome truck that has only gotten better with age. The automatic transmissions that backed these engines were nothing special, though they are typically reliable and there are many upgrades available for potential buyers. I can set the cruise on 70mph and never have to down shift. But the engine is doing great, when the fuel system isn't f'd up! However, while it was a hair on the laggy side, this turbocharger was extremely reliable at stock and slightly over stock power levels.
Empty on the highway I have gotten as high as 27mpg. It will take a while to start because all the oil and fuel was drained from the rails. Engine performance and gas mileage were quite poor. There are, however, many 4-cylinder diesels that are more efficient than eithe of these for light truck duty. I have a 2001 that I am the original owner.
Not the smaller F-250 threw F-550's but in their 650's- 750's they have ran cummins as an option for a long time and to this day. No major issues since I've had it. Expect decent fuel economy, not a speed demon; these engines were built to work. It was always well maintained and never abused. General Comments: The truck was used for snow plowing for a few years.
He just hit the 500,000 mile mark. Numerous tubes and brackets under the hood corroded away. Now, with 110K or so, I have done some front end work. The truck has 198,000 miles and as far as repairs; water pump went out at 104,000 and clutch repaired at 100,000 the truck is a standard. You'll also need to find mechanic with the special tap for the sleeves if they're bad. We invite you to get behind the wheel with us, it's certain to be an interesting drive.
Mine is very low mileage for the year, only about 85K, as I only use it to tow. You probably have that underpowered, higher revving 5. Looking at this F250 2002 with less than 110,000 miles I wondered if I'll end up with another mystery auto illness if I buy it. Transfer case lever broke off. Install to bore making sure it's all the way down If you cant start the hold down bolt it's not all the way down If you can start the bolt it will aide in pulling down the injector tighten to spec. No Review Date: 8th January, 2013 If I remember correctly, there was no 460 cid V8 available for 1997, as the whole line was restyled that year in a more modern fashion.
I don't use it a lot, only 8k miles since I've bought it, but I love it. A splash shield to protect the starter, as well as actually painting the engine at the factory, would have been a big help. In that sense it is a better choice for a pickup than the 6-cylinder Cummins in the Dodge, which is designed for heavy trucks in over- … the-road freight service. Be sure the mechanic knows about proper care of the coolant system afterward since the diesel fuel quickly contaminates the coolant. I have owned other Ford diesels-- a 7. To do this their are two plugs in the head in between the injectors.
There is no comparison between this truck and the Chevrolet C2500, I owned before. Check for damaged wiring, moisture or water intrusion. I have a 2001 bought a couple of years ago with 55K miles on it. I've totally abused this 1999 extend cab F250. I have had two good ones.
Mine has 145k miles and I plan to retire with that truck in about 25 years We've got a 2002 with ~130,000 miles on it. The truck would spend one or two weeks at a time in the shop waiting for parts. Unfortunately, this pump is nowhere near as reliable as the units used on the 7. The easiest way I have found to gain access is to turn the wheels all the way to the right. Tighter tolerances, and a more technologically advanced injection system, allow the 6. Starter motors tend to corrode very quickly, to the point where they need to be replaced, as well as the wiring. I did have to do tie rods and ball joints in front.
