Ford F250 Pickup Super Cab 4x4: my name is***** just installed…

Customer Question
my name is***** just installed...
my name is***** just installed a bulletproof engine kit on my 05 f250 6.0. EGR Cooler, Arp studs & head gaskets, & oil cooler. Everything went back together well and to torque specs as required. Went to start engine and after awhile it fired off and ran for about 5 seconds and then shut off. it now sounds like it has no compression and though it tries to fire it appears out of time. What is this likely to be and what would have caused it?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
