Customer Question
I have a 1983...

I have a 1983 Ford F350 XLT with a 6.3 liter diesel I feel that both tanks I put some diesel fuel supplement octane boost into it and it rained ran fine from Longview to downtown Vancouver and now it does not want to stay running at all I'm not sure what to do and both tanks are full of fuel it'll start up then die

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

I have a 1983 Ford F350 XLT with the 6.4 liter diesel I feel that both tanks in Longview Washington and put some what is it it is called diesel fuel supplement winterizing agent and go thanks and ran down here and basically now it does not want to stay running at all and smoking even worse I'm not sure what to do

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

I made sure everything was plugged in all the injectors I tried to change fuel filter but I can't even get that thing to break loose and I don't have an oil filter wrench with me that's what you got both tanks on and off it doesn't want to run on either one

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

Not that I can think of

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
