Customer Question
I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 f250 with 6.4 diesel. Truck was hesitating to start. Mechanic stated it needed #2 injector and now #2 and 8 cylinders registering +10 when regenerating indicating #2 and 8 cylinder not in good shape. Where to next thanks

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

2008. Has always had oil changes at 5000km

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

As stated #2 injector changed and analysis shows #2 and 8 registering +10 when regenerating. truck is at local mechanic shop who works on diesel engines.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

What are my options based on this info

Hello, are there diagnostic trouble codes stored to indicate a fault with these cylinders? Whats the basis for the injector issues? Not a fuel or base engine fault? No modification to the engine?

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 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
