Ford F350 AC Lack of power

Hi. I hope someone could be of some help as I need it badly. I drive a Ford F350 (Armoured) and work for a security company in Iraq, we transport members of the US Department of Justice and interpreters for the US Army. The AC of the vehicle that I am driving has been giving problems for that past month. Currently we are having tempretures of about 120 farenheit. Having local nationals (iraqies) as vehicle maintanance guys does not help a lot as they are not able to solve the problem.

The problem with the AC is that it is working but the it just does not have any power, it makes cold but comparing it to the ohter Ford's we have it as good as putting their setting on the max ac setting number 1. That is just to compare how cold mine is making and how hard it is blowing to the other vehicles. Does anyone have a sullution on how to fix this by myself? Getting spares and a good dealership is just about impossible.

Thanks guys.

    Let's get to the basic concern. You said it has no "power". Do you mean it does not blow as forceful as it should or it doesn't blow as cold?

    when you mean no power do you mean the blower speed?

We had similar problems when i was over there as well. the issue with our trucks was that the blower was going out... pretty much all we could do was take it and try to find an army mechanic to see if they could figure it out... it took a while but it was worth the time to get it fixed.

Ford f350 4x4 7.3 powerstroke, lack of power. max out at 20-30mph when pulling hills with or without trailer, doesn't seem to know when to shift, sometimes will shift sometimes not. ?????

check the wiring harness and connectors to the boost sensor, if sensor is not reading the truck drops into safe mode, and drastically decreases engine power. the sensor is located on the intake manifold.

After 2 years of no use my f350 v10 has a lack of

Check the fuel after about a year gas tends to go bad. If it smells like varnish it's bad. If its not the fuel do a compression check This will tell you if the valves are seating properly and if the rings are in good shape. If it's the fuel drain it refill and add fuel treatment. If it's a lack of compression try adding Marvel Mistery oil to the oil this will free up the rings and valves. Good Luck

2001 ford Expedition odometer reads 100mph

I used to calibrate police speedometers, The odometer by the way is the device that records how much distace you have travelled, The little numbers on the bottom of your speedo. If your speedo reads 100mph regardless of how fast you are travelling, The answer is simple you have some dirt jammed in your speedo. Check that your speedo is mechanical ie it has an armoured square ended cable that comes from the engine to the back of your speedo. Get your hand round the back of the dash and find the back of the speedo. See if you can feel an armoured cable going into the speedo, if so it will usually unscrew and let you pull the square drive inner out. This task is easier if you can first get the speedo out. It will have to come out. Then take the speedo apart without removing the pointer. A cup spins round a magnet and the pivots on the magnet sometimes get glued up. Clean with fine paint brush and parrafin. DO NOT TOUCH THE HAIRSPRING. Get diagram of dragcup speedo as it will show you all the parts. Hope this helps

I have a ford f350 power stoke 7.3 liter and it is blowing white smoke and it won't go above 2500rpms

Hi, I am a mechanic for a large fleet service company, i mostly work on ford 7.3 and 6.0l diesels. If you have a 7.3l that runs like **** and is blowing white smoke there are a number of things that could cause this. first is the service engine light on, if so the DTC's contained in the pcm can be very valuable in finding the cause of your problem. Most of the time you'll get white smoke and a power loss due to bad injectors, but not always. Check the top fuel filter (it is located atop the engine in the middle of the valley, it has a black cap about 4 or 5 inches in diameter). This filter being blocked could also cause the problem your having. If it is blocked with black or brown (rusty) fuel i would recommend dropping the fuel tank and checking the screens in the fuel sending unit. Let me know how you make out.
