Question about 1995 Ford F350

1 Answer

460 engine, automatic trans 39 700 original hard kms engine oil level has risen 2 gallons in 50 miles

I do not know how this is happening. i am mechanically inclined and cannot understand how this can be happening! i first drained out the excess oil as i thought the fellow that changed the oil last had overfilled it. after driving it again it filled up again.
there was no miss in the engine,it had balck smoke under load, it was pinging as if low octane fuel. now it will not start and i think the rear seal might have blown out as it is way overfull now. how can fuel get into the engine bock in that sort of volume.
water level is fine in the radiator. no bubbles, oil does not look like peanut butter.

You did not say what the year model of the engine is. but if the fuel pump is located on the block, the the fuel pump is bad and pumping fuel into the crank case...

2004. Ran for a week, maybe 50 miles total, with oil light on, then came engine noise like a knocking. Oil level a bit high. What's wrong?

Likely head gasket failure. Oil level appears high because coolant is leaking into oil. This dilutes the oil causing the knocking. Oil usually looks brown or foamy when this happens. Park it now.

Duponts original Teflon Treatment

I read about people having problems with "Slick 50" and other products containing Teflon. I wouldn't touch slick 50 myself.
However, the original "Teflon Treatment" created by Dupont
WORKED WONDERS on many combustion engines.

I first learned about it when working as a petrol engineer for Exxon at the refinery in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1969.
I worked on what was called a "hydrocracker" That is part of processing crude oil at extremely high temperatures and full of grit. There were two high powered jet engine type turbines to move the material through the pipeline. Only one was used at a time because they had to have their bearings exchanged every two weeks. One day the technician came by and said it was his last trip. I asked why and he said because the bearings are now coated with Teflon and will never need replacing again. I was "gobsmacked" and disbelieving. six months later I quit my job to return to University. I discovered that Dupont's Teflon was sold to an outfit that was advertising it as Teflon Treatment for combustion engines, manual gear boxes and transfer cases. I was sceptical, but followed the directions on a cheap can of it and poured it into my old lawn mower's oil tank per directions with the engine running. As I awaited the 30 minutes advised to keep it running so the Teflon was thoroughly dispersed and the unknown chemical that kept the Teflon in fluid form had fully evaporated leaving all metal surfaces coated. I noticed the engine reved up on its own and ran like new. The can said I would never have to change my oil or oil filter if I had changed the oil and filter first, which I had done. That lawn mower is working today and never had it's oil changed and using the same filter. I then started using it on many vehicles, school buses, charter buses, my 1973 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible, and others. I put over 300,000. miles on that Cadillac and it still runs great on less petrol and much more power and it hasn't had an oil change or new filer since 1982 when I inherited it. I recently checked the compression in the 501cc engine and found every one of the 8 cylinders had factory specks pressure in each one.
Unfortunately the product was no longer available. The people who make and sell Slick 50 had bought the patent.
Mixing straight Teflon into motor oil does not work well; that's why it gums up engines. The Teflon isn't in suspension (fluid form) as the original Teflon Treatment was, thus the gum. I know it won't work if poured into a cold engine and perhaps they have changed the formula to make it work better, but if you don't follow the directions on the container you won't get the results you are hoping for.
My Caddy will outrun anything on the highway and gets 4 miles per gallon more from the petrol. On a tour bus that used to only got 3 miles per gallon of gas, after the treatment it got 8 miles per gallon. The owner was thrilled and it is still in service some 30 years later; never having to be worked on. Never put Teflon treatment of any kind in an automatic shifting gear box. You'll have to buy a new one.

My c250 mercedes makes a rat telling noise when starting from cold why is that

1.Is the noise coming from the inside of the engine or the outside of the engine or from some other area of the car not part of the engine bay?.
If it is coming from the inside of the engine ....
1. How many miles or kms has the vehicle done
2. How many miles or kms since the last engine oil change
3. What grade of oil was used for the last oil change (eg. 5w-30 or 10w-30 or some other).

I have been told the engine mounts are sagging on my Ford Focus (late 2007) with only 30,000 km on clock. surely this should not happen at such low kms?

I find that quite unbelievable. Many of the Ford engine mounts, especially for Focus and Escorts have an offset bushing (not perfectly centered in the mount). Perhaps they are unfamiliar with this, and making a wrong assessment. I have a 1999 Escort with 225,000 miles (362,100 km) that still has the original motor mounts.
Is yours an automatic trans or a standard? Is your car making a knock/clunk, or other symptom, under heavy acceleration or deceleration? As I said, I just find having bad motor mounts this early on, extremely unusual/unbelievable. But I would have to see them first hand.

Ford get away van 460, reverse good torque backs rite up, shifting to drive smooth no noise very slow take off, needs more rpm 2 go, seems somthing is holding back, any suggestions,

Open the hood and on the passengers side close to the firewall you should find a dipstick similar to the engine oil dipstick that one should be for the trans. Engine should be running in park to check the level of oil.

Noise and vibration above 50 mph

Sounds like front differential or front drive axle issues. Check the front differential gear oil then take er' to the dealership before you end up spending a bunch of $. Most people change their oil frequently in the engine but forget about flushing the transmission fluid and changing oil in the front and rear differentials. I have three Ford 4X4s. Two which really get used hard. The 93 has 311K miles and still runs excellent. Trans and differentials get a fluid change every 25K miles and moble one synthetic engine oil changes every 5k miles.

I have a 94 4.0L and I use 10W-40 in the winter and 20W-50 in the summer. It keeps the pressure up and it doesn't smoke when I start it because of the valve seals. It takes 8 quarts everytime including the filter. 2 gallon jugs. I change it about every 4,000 miles.
