I am recently having some problems with my truck which have surfaced and I am finding it odd and I really hope this isn't the end for this truck because I love it...
The problems began shortly after getting 220,000 miles on the clock.
First started as being a bit reluctant to start ( it has been in the mornings before I got it tuned up but ever since It usually started in about 3 cranks using my glow plugs )
But for the last few days the truck has been not wanting to start. As in, I would have to crank it for 30 seconds before the engine even sputters. I crank it again after I see the smoke and it starts right up. Like nothing has happened.
The other problem.
For some reason, after being parked, ( the truck does fine unless I leave it over night ) *points to above post*
When starting the truck up, and putting it in drive, results in the engine running funny for a few seconds then stalling on me. Revving the engine in park before putting it in drive, and it won't do this.
But as soon as I put it in drive, I can barely keep the truck alive. It does this for about 4 minutes then its fine..
The truck I have is a 1988 Ford F250 4x4 Diesel 5.7L
Recently had it tuned up, new cats, new exhaust, new muffler, glow plugs, a/c recharge.
I have tried pulling codes but I get nothing.
