Customer Question
Hello. just purchased a...

Hello. just purchased a 2017 Ford F350 diesel 6.7 Powerstroke with only 22 km on it. The location was 1000 km from my home (all highway driving). From what I understand on the internet, I may have glazed the cylinders (permanently damaging the vehicle). Is this true? If so, what is the fix for it and how do I know if it is damaged?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the engine? And when was it last serviced?

Its new

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Its new

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.
