Customer Question
2006 6.0 F250, surging...

2006 6.0 F250, surging and idles down at stop light. i put it in neutral to keep the rpm's up. what do you think could be causing this?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Traffic lights when i come to a stop. also it starts to surge while driving.

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

Yes, i wondering if it could be bad fuel or maybe computer

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

I've done the egr delete, head studs, head gaskets, and use a SCT programmer

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.
