Question about 2004 Ford F250

1 Answer

6.0 powerstroke noise

2004 powerstroke 75000 miles. just serviced 4500 miles ago. on a 4500 mile trip this past week with about 500 miles left to home motor started making a whooshing sound at 1/2 to full throttle. noise loudest at full throttle pulling hill towing 10000lbs. noise absent at idle and at small throttle openings. sounds like static from an am radio or vacuum cleaner under my passenger dash board. i need to make a 1500 mile trip tomorrow and don't know if i'll do more damage or possibly break down altogether. i thought it to possibly be a vacuum leak but was told that engine light would come on. also had suggested it is a turbo on it's last leg. any suggestions out there?

Not the turbo on it's last legs. Check the hoses that come off of your turbo that go into the intake. Fords are famous for the hose clamps that hold the hoses in place breaking or coming loose and the woosh sound you hear is the compressed air being forced out of the hose somewhere when the turbo spools up. When this occurs you probably don't have quite the pulling torque you should. You will notice quite a drop in performance. Check the hoses or rubber boot connections from your turbo.

Engine won't go over 5-10 MPH


You need to take the car to the dealer, because you need to recalibrate the electric throttle body with a TECH 2 Scanner, because the system went into a Limp mode.

I have a 2000 Subaru Outback wagon with approx. 75,000 miles on it...about a week ago my check engine light came on...my gas cap was loose so I tightened it and the light remained on for exactly one week. ...


you can get pop up trouble light going off if the battery is weak or even low ,, have the battery LOAD tested, you could have one cell bad, so it would show 12 volts but not actually the required amps necessary, this would make the alternator work overtime, which would draw from the power it needs to actually run the vehicle

worth checking the fuel tank for holes or there might be some fuel delivery pipes leaking badly. Or it might be an O2 sensor not giving correct signal to ecu thus consuming so much fuel.

Hi i just want to know how i reset the oil service in 2010 land cruiser


place key into ignition, hold hold the trip reset for the odometer. turn key to "on" - not start. wait. you will see 4 blinking bars, then 3 then 2 then 1 then none. your oil service light will be off now. It will come back on and flash after 4500 miles, then at 5000 miles it will come on steady and stay on. you have to replace the oil every 4500 - 5000 miles and reset the light each time.

OdometerGears.com has the gears for you to repair the odometer. If the odometer and the tripometer are stacked you will need and E20= 20 tooth gear and a 16 tooth medium pod. If the odometer and tripometer are split left to right you will need 2 drive and 2 worm gears. Give them a call and they will offer you a discount for the four gears. The total for two gears is $54.00 and for the four gears is $89.00 both prices include the shipping.
