Question about Ford F-350 Super Duty

2 Answers

After 2 hours of freeway driving I entered the city. It was hot, had the AC on. After about 5 miles the 1997 motorhome, on a Ford 360 chassis, sputtered and died. Half hour later I was able to go 1/2 mile. Then half hour later went another 1/2 mile. Next morning it started fine, let it run for 10 minutes, no problem. Any ideas?

Since it is recent, you might try to go to Autozone and ask them to scan your vehicle. Sometimes a trouble code can still be in the computer. You did not say if you have diesel or gas. If gas it sounds like "vapor lock" or a bad coil. You might want to try another fuel cap because with the extra heat you could have pressurized the tank and lost the fuel draw. If you have two tanks, the next time it does this switch tanks and see if it helps.

Low gas mileage city and hiway @ 4-5 MPG below MSRP sticker data of 15 and 21MPG on a NEW 2013 Silverado. 2000 miles on odometer and mileage not improving.


is this calculated mileage or what the estimated mileage is showing on the dash. Have you checked to see what you get on just the freeway?

What are your driving habits like?

How is your tire pressure?

Do you make a lot of short trips?

1995 ford 360 powered motorhome runs great for the first 10 miles then it runs out of power,idles fine put it in drive and it bogs out,when it sits for a while its ok again


Motorhomes are notorious for high heat buildup in the engine areas. There is normally not enough air flow in and around the engine which causes this condition.

My immediate thought is that the engine might be having a fuel heating problem. If fuel heats up too much, it turns to a vapor and then the injection system cannot perform its job. Look for some flexible, metallic insulation at your parts store and see if insulating the fuel lines from where they enter the engine compartment up to the injector rail provides any relief. I assume that at this point, fuel pressure has already been tested and found to be adequate.

Ford fusion 3 1600 diesel cam belt mileage change


75,000 miles for heavy urban city driving.
100,000 miles if you drive a lot of freeway.
Mix driving should be under 90,000 miles.
If your the timing guide (on the side of the timing belt cover) making noise then you should change it ASAP.
A loose timing belt will offset timing on the injector and decrease mileage.
