I pressure washed my f-250 today including the engine to remove salt and dirt from plowing and shortly after it went into limp mode and subsequently stalled and will not start, I have a heater running under the hood as we speak to dry any possible wet wires or moduals, any advise from ford truck mechanics?

You have a wet coil pack possibly. use hair dryer to dry the engine coil pack. if you're not familiar with coil packs, they replaced the old type distributors. water has built up in coil pack or you've blown off a spark plug wire from coil pack while pressure washing engine.

Ive a Falcon Fairmont Ghia 04 after driving through a big puddle today the car stalled &went into limp mode something has got really wet can you help me please


All the electrical plugs should be weather pack plugs. this type of water and the low pressure of it, shouldn't get into them. If it was a lot of water, check the air filter. If it is misfiring, check spark plugs wires and or coil boots. which ever you have.

1993 Isuzu NPR when taking off transmission shifts good but after bout 1/4 mile downshifts out of overdrive and will not shift into of again until it sits and cools for a little while


Many of todays cars have a mode called Limp Mode. The Motor and Computer talk to each other and if faults are found? The Limp Mode (( Short for Limp on home mode )) will be set in the Computer. Go to your local Auto Zone and ask them to Scan the OBD 2 fault codes with their reader. Or pay the dealer. It may be something really simple. My Check Engine light was on the other day because the Gas Cap was loose. This Scanner told us the problem and we tightened the Gas Cap. After 3 times driving the car with it tight .... The Check Engine light went off.

Oil light is on and engine in limp mode


check the oil level in the sump, coolant level, coolant temperature (overheating), transmission oil level if auto. The limp mode is energised by any number of sensors that register a fault that is detrimental to the engine/ gear box. Run the fault codes and repair any faulty units . Reset the CPU with a scanner .

Faulty Turbo


Now if i knew what you meant by blew ?? then i might have a idea --most turbo faults are caused by dirty oil and changing the engine oil every 5000miles with a filter every third oil change will stop this problem .The other problem is the turbine vanes breaking off or being damaged by grit where the air filter is missing or a pipe loose or split allowing the thing to suck in unfiltered air but i do know someone with one of these and he sold it in the end and bought a transit as the turbo gave up quite often ,but without taking the turbo apart then i couldnt tell you why they are failing but i do know he kept a small hand held diagnostic machine in the cab and when it went into limp mode he cleared the codes and off he went again .Seem to remember as well the waste gate operating piston playing up i think a rubber tube perished so it didnt open and the increase in pressure as the engine revved up caused the thing to go into limp mode as too much pressure was being generated ,the rubber tube goes from the pressure side of the turbo to the piston its about 4cms long so as the air pressure builds up it this pressure pushes the piston which opens the waste gate which is a little flap on the exhaust side of the turbo into the exhaust manifold so when it opens it allows the exhaust gas pressure to go straight down the exhaust pipe releaving pressure on the turbo vanes .If the pressure in the inlet side goes too high then a sensor will put the engine into limp mode .Hope you understand this technical jargon ?

1 month ago my x type went into limp mode. Mechanic had it for three days and could find nothing wrong. Then today it went into limp mode four times. No warning lights on dash


The only time a vehicle goes into limp mode is when there is ****** problems, so I would take it to the ****** shop for code retrivel and if I am not wrong there might be problem with the Input/Output speed sensors BUT do have it checked first.

HI, you dont say what the sound is like, Have you checked the engine oil, this car as the PD engine fitted and only use good fully synthetic oils.it could have gone into limp mode for lots of reasons, go to a reputable repair centre and get the car checked out, good luck.

Over heat after new thermostat


hey Tim, I have a 90 F-250 w/ plow. Did u have overheating issues before, or did u just purchase the truck? As u know u really need a heavy duty cooling system to plow. A truck purchased for plowing should have the 'plow package' option, which includes heavy duty cooling (engine, which is usually a bigger radiator) heavy duty battery and alternator, trans. cooler, heavy duty front end (for extra plow weight). So, my question is, is this a new problem, or not? My truck is set up for the plow, but I still have to watch the temp. gauge. I only have temp issues when driving down the road, plow up, not doing the actual plowing (sounds like your problem too). The plow up position blocks all incoming air to the radiator, so try driving with the plow as low as possible, and angle it all the way to one side, this will let the air flow, and works well w/ my truck. Let me know if this works for u or not. Curt
