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

Just changing a badly rusted cab to a rust free cab

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

Yes. I will be changing the cab myself

ok,

since you are going from OBD1 to OBD2 in cabs, you will need to change the harness both inside the cab and outside the cab or the engine compartment. it will be a lot of work but needs to be done. controls are different for each cab

Do I also need to change the instrument cluster?

that may be ok. you will need to see if the harness connectors are the same. Since you are doing the interior harness, and you will have it out anyway, I would do it anyway.

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
