When my truck broke down I got on the computer and looked up the symptoms and new what was wrong with it before the dealer called the next morning. The diesel truck sites are pretty good and I don't think there is a problem you could have that somebody hasn't had already.

I'm interested in finding out just what grounded the OP's 6.4? I doubt anyone following this thread really cares about someone else's fuel mileage. 12mpg or 16mpg, they all suck.....but most of the time get the job done. I can't believe how positive the OP's attitude was when his travel plans were crushed. I'd be steaming mad. Many of us wait and plan all year long for that BIG vacation. That guy has incredible character. Good luck my friend! Please keep us in the loop.

Thank you

Weather in Pittsburgh this winter/spring has been great, Florida is starting to get hot by now (imo). Today started on outdoor projects.

The only reason we were going to Florida was we have 2 days left on are life time world hopper Disney tickets from 1994 (kids were 12 & 10) and the rate at the KOA in Davenport $215 for seven nights! Which includes free shuttle service.

Well OP...what happened to your truck? Any diagnosis yet?


No

Only 1 diesel mechanic @ shop and will be at least 1 week wait.

closest guess as of now is limp mode because of over heat, still don't know what oily substance was. 1 reply @ ford truck enthusiasts forum.

Anyone want to recommend another site for me?
