Question about 2001 Ford F250 Super Duty Super Cab
I had tohave my 2000 Ford F350 Crew Cab towed on Christmas Eve by Triple A. The dealership was closed but the tow truck driver recommended a privat shop that he said did good work. They charged me $700.00 to change the fuel pump. When I picked up the truck the owner of the shop told me to watch the gas gauage and if it didn't operat correctlyto bring it back in. Indeed it did not work properly as it sat on empty. I filled the tank (38 gallons) twice to be sure it wouldn't correct but it didn't. I also noticed that my mileage remaining calculator kept showing about 170 mile left to go no matter how much gas was in it. Also the outside temperature guage showed the temp to be about 20 degress cooler than it actually was. I took the truck back to the shop and when I picked it up I went straight to a gas station and filled it up. The gas guage only would show just a hair above 1/2 a tank. I drove straight back to the shop and the owner assured me that it would slowly go up. I'm a nice guy and bought into it even though I knew somewhere deep down I would be back. So...before I take it back can anybody tell me what the poblem is, should I let this guy work on the truck again and did I get taken for a ride on the dollars? Appreciate any help you can give.
Has the repair guy 'monkeyed' around with your fuel pump? If the gas guage is in the tank like most of the nowadays trucks and he bent or done something wrong with the fuel pump when he had it out then I would say he should fix it the way it should be but it sounds like you were 'taken' for a 'ride' by that mechanic!
