Just had it in. Was running good until we drove it. Not more then 5 miles most in town with only a couple miles at speed on the interstate and it just loses power then stahles and dies. It's blowing lots of white smoke. Not doing any of this before we had it in. It will start up and get up to about 10 mph and then start to lose power, stahl and die, all over again. Almost everything has been replaced in the last 3 months. Hateing ford and it's 6.0 V8 turbo diesels right now. Ours is a 2005 ford E-450 cutaway bus 6.0 V8 turbo diesel. Help please as we use to be Ford lovers now we want a devorce as it is always a fight with new problems every time we start it.
JA: How many miles are on the engine
? How has your mileage
Customer: 180087. Not sure. Like I said every time we start it something new shows up and leaves us stranded. The furthest it has gone is about 100 miles and we used 1/2 a tank, so not very good.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: We already have fixed most our selves and ford mechanic only seam to cause more problems.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Ford Mechanic should know about your Ford?
Customer: Now it won't even turn over and we have replaced almost everything. Starter
, EGR, EGR cooler, head gaskets, fuel, air and oil filters. All coolants
except power steering
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
Customer: And it's been in to two ford shops in the last week as we try to make it from Washington to Ohio with not much luck.
