Car runs fine just quits


Does this have a "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light on? If so, get the codes pulled and post them back here along with the engine info. If no codes are present then it may well be a bad crankshaft sensor. I have seen many of these give intermittent problems (usually heat related) and do exactly what you have described without setting a code.

2005 Ford F350 SuperDuty 6.0 litre Diesel. Truck was very sluggish to accelerate and little or no boost showing on turbo pressure gauge. Next morning, it started fine, but when put in gear would quit and...


well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage will occur.

2004 ford f350diesle hard starting depress throtle nothing there


Dear dsmalley427,
I think it sounds like a fuel injection problem. You get fuel for a while until the injector backs up and then all of a sudden NO FUEL. The engine quits and the pressure drops and flow returns enough for you to restart. If I were you I would get to a good mechanic and check the fuel injectors.
OR--try adding a fuel additive that would clean the injectors.--Signed jwr

Back fire while driveing


check for vacuum leaks at your throttle body, intake manifold gaskets and vacuum line, or you could possibly have a sticking valve. if I am understanding you rite the truck sat for 2 years. also check the wiring to your sensors as for a rodent may have chewed some insulation off, this happened to my sons car.

1990 ford diesel non turbo


it sounds like your fuel lines aren't maintaining pressure and the angle is allowing too much fuel to drain out of the lines. i have the same issue with and older f350 diesel if i let it sit a while and it doesn't get started.
