    Cruise Works Randomly

    Well after spending the afternoon chasing down every connection to and from the tail lights and cruise I still had a the same problem. The issue was fixed by.... opening up the actual cruise switch and cleaning the contacts of coffee or cola or what ever was in there. Easy to do but unhappiness...

    Nope, I'm not getting any hard or soft codes, no CEL and the speedo doesn't drop off like it lost the signal.

    Cruise Works Randomly

    I got an 08 F250 4X4 6.4 auto and the cruise is not working very well. There are times it won't turn on/set, other times it works great, then it will just shut off all on it's own. Where do I start?

    so according to ford it is normal for this engine to make its own oil?

    Ah no, the truck will just blow unburned fuel out the pipe cause it can't light it off. Big ol mess!!

    Try changing where you get your fuel. I'm up in Canada and Petro Canada makes Diesel Max, the extra 7 cents a liter well worth it. Smoother starts in the cold, less engine noise .....I don't go south so I don't know what would be the comparable but cheapo fuel is cheap for a reason. My 2c.

    Winter cover

    I'm from 1/2 way up Manitoba Canada and we use the factory Ford one but ya gata compare the temps out side to what your doing. Even in -30 you can get these trucks on the warm side when towing cause the stock gauges are out to lunch. They don't go past center till about 240!!, you've been...

    Ya if it's still under warentee take r back, I'd say the DPF has fallen a part and that's why your getting soot at the tail pipe. To buy one out right and new your lookin at around 4K US, but if you dig around there are lots that have been pulled and are just bout given away, so look around.

    A lot of things add up to more regens, extended cold idle up, heavy foot with cold engine, heavy foot period, poor quality oil, poor quality fuel, dirty air filter, idling all day....but black soot on an emissions complete truck is not a good sign. That tail pipe should be clean.

    Question kem 345 tune questions

    Ya suncoast's trans and converters are apparently the way to go. Yes the EGR full deletes are worth it especialy with awaste gate but that's a few bucks, blocker plates are so so and almost as much work as doing a full delete. I don't think just turning off the EGR is advisable without...

    Question kem 345 tune questions

    The trans is actually really tough but if you get stupid you'll wipe out the converter. Watch the slip numbers is the unit you picked will display it, I really hope it does, and keep it as low as possible. If the converter starts to go you'll smoke the fluid and then take out the trany, no trany...

    ticking time bomb?

    These aren't HEUI, No oil to these injectors.

    DTS codes

    Is this the code "P2263 Turbo/Super Charger Boost System Performance"? You could have plugged up the EGR when you had that "oop's" a little while a go. Any noise ya never heard before from the engine, it could be a blow turbo gasket.

    Help Needed fuel building up in my oil

    Ya the running a tuner and the DPF/CAT still on the truck was not a good plan. The DPF alone is over 5K to replace and it wouldn't be on warentee's tab. I'd learn about what your doing before you do it. The cream of systems, Spartan Diesel Tech, period.

    The EGR delete can't be done without running a tuner and BTW I wouldn't buy a cheap one.

    Help Needed fuel building up in my oil

    First, I wouldn't go 15 K to an oil change. 2nd, I'd get a delete kit, I hear that with out regen you don't get fuel building up in your oil, and don't get a cheap one. The cracked head would be in an HUEI trucks, ours aren't, could be an injector but it's most probably blow by from when the...

    2010 f 250 starting problem

    This doesn't happen on a 6.4, injectors don't run that way. If it under warentee let em look at it, if not, do the fuel filter first.
