Question about Ford F-250

1 Answer

My 1986 F250 (diesel, automatic, 4x4, banks turbo-charged)takes 30 seconds to a minute to "drop" into gear (any gear fwd or rev)and will only do so when RPMs are raised to 1500-2000. i.e. slide the shifter to desired gear, punch the accelerator, truck finds the gear. Transmission dead? Miles on tranny unknown. -Cory

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll swap out the fluid and price out torque converters. This old truck may ride again!

Hi! Before making a decision to replace the tranny there are few things to correct this. Please replace the automatic transmission fluid for it may be burnt which can cause the shifting delay. Replace the torque converter too for it can be faulty which causes driving failure to the transmission. Once replaced a smooth ride and shifting will be noticeable. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Is it normal for the revs to stay up when changing gear in a 2002 4x4 3.0L turbo diesel navara?


do they revs drop off when taking pressure off accelerator pedal when out of gear? if only staying high during gear change it would suggest a worn clutch friction/pressure plate so the engine isn't slowing down when clutch is depressed .I'd also have the OBD codes read to see if there is a sensor/switch at fault , but sounds like the clutch to me

Hi there. i have a 1986 toyota hilux 3.0l turbo(knocking)


I have a Toyota Hilux 3.0 KZ-TE fitted with a intercooler and on Saterday on a 4x4 outing the engine light on the dashboard came on and the motor started spluttering and excessive white smoke came out of the exhaust. The problem persisted for several minutes and then went away. The verdict from other 4x4 owners was that the turbo needs an overall, I cannot understand this as it is fine again with no mechanical interferance.

try some of the Lucas product for diesel engines,
diesels are made for hard work/pulling. not for fuel economy
the best thing you can do is to keep the fuel filter changed as often or sooner than the manual recommends. it will be the heart to a happy diesel
