Customer Question
2012 Ford F350 SD, 6.7...
2012 Ford F350 SD, 6.7 Diesel. Purchaed 11/11, Production date 8/11. Started vehicle this morning no issue, drove to friends house shut off truck. Truck sat for about 2 hours, when out would not start, just clicking and an attempt to turn over. Truck was in the middle of the driveway so gave the remote start feature a try, fired right up. Any ideas.

I am a mechanic also, heavy equipment and farm equipment just so you know I do have some level of knowledge. I would not say it was a clunk as much as a relay or solenoid vibrating quickly, But still makes not sense the remote start worked fine.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No sense (can't spell either) :)
Ford Mechanic: john -aka eauto, The Car Guy replied 1 year ago

I'm a terrible speller also.. sounds like a intermittent starter failure...I think it was just coincidence that it startd with the remote. I think you have the beginning of a starter failure

That's what I thought too, but the truck only has 60 K on it. Have the 6.7 been experiencing starter issues?
Ford Mechanic: john -aka eauto, The Car Guy replied 1 year ago

yes tons of starter failures...the 6.7 can be troublesome

OK I will run it over to the Ford dealer, only problem I have found is if it is not 'failing' when they test it they will not do anything. I have the Ford ESP to 100K or 5 years....lets see if they will replace it. Will the put in new or remanned?
Ford Mechanic: john -aka eauto, The Car Guy replied 1 year ago

esp is usually pretty good...usually the wont replace unless its acting up

Ford Mechanic: john -aka eauto, The Car Guy replied 1 year ago

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.

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
