2005 F550 V10 lacks power


Sounds like a problem with the transmission. Your problem could be caused by a number of things related to the tranny but I would try change the Trans fluid and filters first. Costs around 100 at your local transmission repair shop.

"high rpm no power"


More detail would help, such as what are you working on, and fuller description of symptoms. If you are saying that as the engine revs, power seems to drop off, there are many possibilities. Clogged exhaust system (think bad cat converter), or bad ignition module (they have a low speed section and a high speed section), inadequate fuel delivery, gas pedal not opening throttle all the way, or if your vehicle is "fly-by wire", bad gas pedal section.

Our new Forester Diesel is ok But has no power at low revs when pulling away from standstil or moving slowly in 2nd and 3rd gears. Also main issue with this vehicle is the very slow and tractor like gear...


The forester diesel 6spd gear box is designed to replace the high low gear box so although starting off in second or third gear is possible .... puts a lot of strain on compents ie clutch/ gear box . very slow manuovering is much better carried out in 1st gear , as is moving from stationary . The engine torque is low dow the rev range high max idle is reached very quickly . The diesel engine characteristics are different to the petrol version ( I own 2.5 forester 2009 - 7.8l per km's @55000 km's). So you need to change your driving style to suit . I have test driven the 2.0l Diesel and sufficiently impressed to replace the 2009 version with the diesel .

Revs drop coming to standstill


Here is the cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Runs erratically


The idle air valve (located below the throttle body) provides the control for constant idle speed. In order to set the correct air valve opening to achieve constant idle speed, the fuel injection control unit uses information from the air mass meter, throttle valve switch and the ignition control unit (RPM signal) to regulate the output current to the idle air valve. This means that the idle valve is not affected by air leaks or a jammed throttle valve.
