Vehicle overspeed code: Some trucks my have the diagnostic code P0297 stored in the computer memory. The upfitter wires are near the stationary elevated idle input wires, so care must be taken not to confuse the two. The result is the development of holes overtime. Then press the powerfold switch to re-deploy the mirrors. Fuel-Water Separator Issues The fuel-water separator on the 6.
Fuel dilution is a common and quite significant problem in the 6. F-450 Pickup--steering wander on rough roads: Some trucks may exhibit a wander feeling on rough or rutted roads. As tampering with emission control devices is illegal, there is little owners can do in terms of modification. Please see the Customer Information Sheet for additional information. Any help would be greatly appreciated! While cavitation has not been known to attack the cylinder jackets of the 6.
Leaks commonly develop at the ends of the radiator where the crimps holding on the end tanks work loose overtime. Symptoms include a lack of power under acceleration and resticted air filter lamp illumination. . On the contrary, excessive idling and stop-and-go driving conditions will result in more frequent regeneration resulting from repeated loading of soot in the filter. I have a used one in good working condition if you need it. Replacing the vane position sensor is the easiest and the most likely cause.
This results in an oil leak that may appear as a rear main seal leak. Leaking Radiator Leaking radiators are common and more prominent on early build engines - it seems as though the problem was addressed and eradicated in later production engines. I'm guessing that because it's a performance code, the reading from the sensor has varied from what's considered plausible. There is a procedure for installing a temporary filter between the power steering pump and cooler to clean the system. The vehicle must be driven until the Cleaning Exhaust Filter message is extinguished. Once again Cheesit chimed in to help somebody else and pointed me in the right direction.
Disconnecting the batteries or computer will not clear this code. Cylinder Washing Cylinder washing is a concern very much related to the fuel dilution of engine oil. Strict emissions regulations and the overall questionable reliability of the 6. Perform diagnosis on the above codes and engine noises as needed. So, my dad's truck started throwing these codes fairly recently, and I'm trying to get them figured out for him. For most driving conditions, normal exhaust filter regeneration will begin anywhere from 100-600 miles 161-966 km from the completion of the last regeneration cycle.
Fuel cooling pump noise: The 6. If the condition remains, the valve cover for the affected bank should be removed and the individual injector connections inspected. Aug 29, 2010 P0401 shows an Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Insufficient. Use a hose pinch-off plier to crimp off the heater inlet hose. Folding one mirror completely in, then fully out by habd will not unsynch the mirrors. Fuel Dilution of the Engine Oil During the active regeneration process, fuel is introduced into the exhaust stream by means of a post-injection strategy, in which fuel is injected late in the exhaust stroke so that it may exit the cylinder in its raw or relatively so form. These are normal conditions and do not require repair.
If no problems are found, do not attempt a repair at this time. If this problem occurs, the new harness part is 8C3Z-9G805-A, as identified by the service bulletin. A loud squealing from the pump mounted on the driver sid of the lower fan shroud can indicate air trapped in the system. The collapse of the vacuum pocket consequently causes the surrounding coolant column to crash into the adjacent surface. Radiator coolant leak: Some radiators have developed leaks at the end tanks due to poor tank crimping. In order to prevent possible damage from excessive fuel dilution, owners should check the engine oil frequency and consider changing their oil more frequently than Ford recommends. What this means is that there is not a specific item giving a bad reading but something in the system as a whole is not correct.
If brake grabbing continues, replace the hydroboost unit. Very few trucks were affected, although a viral video on the web that featured a 6. The turbo made the right kind of whoosh noises at start up etc and the idle was perfect, no smoke, and it started on the button; just no grunt at all. A gross leak will appear immediately, but a monor leak may take up to 15 minutes to appear. Jul 02, 2012 Lean code , lean condition is always an interesting problem to solve, if you found a vacuum leak your job is done, but if you didn't the fun begins, First if you have an engine scanner you have to write down a o2 sensor voltage or short fuel trim value your job is to change those numbers if the fuel pump is weak the trim value would be negative -7 or less, and the O2 sensor voltage would be less than.
