Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
Have you determined what is causing the smoke yet?
What are you looking to accomplish with me? You really didnt ask a question so I dont know what you are looking for here.
Start by checking your fluids. Particularly oil and coolant and see if either is low. Then tell me if you can smell what is burning... your exhaust should smell like burning coolant, oil or diesel. Also check for codes if you can.,. if you dont have a code reader most auto parts stores will check your codes free. Let me know what you find and we can try to figure out which way to go in testing.
OK. And how bout codes? Have you had it checked for codes?
That doesnt mean theres no codes. Youre best off checking it for codes first. It could save you a lot of unnecessary testing.
What software version is your brick running?
It should say on the cartridges if I remember correct. Its probably been ten years since ive used an MT2500 so double check it and if not let me know.
You asked about the key.. not the cartridge ;) You are gonna want the 10.4 cartridge if you have to buy the cartridge.
Im pretty sure youre gonna need the K2A key. Im not sure on the cartridge.. this truck was made long after I upgraded to a solus and I rarely used the brick after that.
I believe you can use any ford cartridge with the K2A key and get some information but Im sure theres a cartridge that is best suited to your truck. I would suggest calling snap on to get the most accurate information on the tool. I dont want to steer you wrong.
Have you tried checking for coded using the K2A and going in under generic?
Let me know what you find and Ill let you know where to start based on your findings.,
