Question about 2005 Ford F 250 Super Duty

2 Answers

I have an 05 F250 Super Duty that has a lot of trouble starting, engine light is on, and runs really rough between 800 and 1700 rpms. My mechanic said the engine is shot but I have a hard time believing that considering he did no diagnostics. I dont want to cause more problems driving it and too expensive to tow every place I want an opinion

I have a hard time believing your mechanic.. unless it has "oodles of miles" and has been abused. I'd start with giving it an all out tune up - plugs, wires, all fluids & filters. Have a compression test done, could be burnt valve, could be as simple as a vac leak.If you can get it running have any good parts store do an OBII scan (fault scan) (Autozone, Advance, etc...) will do this FREE. They'll pull codes and they will identify what triggered your engine light. Could be alot of things, but have scan done instead of throwing parts at it - TIP: find another mechanic.

F250 diesel running rough

The only way to find out is to take it to a mechanic who has an engine analyzer and the rubbing could be caused by a loose mudshield (or a dozen other things).
