Re: 2004 F250 starting/running problems
Sounds like my PCM or FICM may be smoked, as I too have been having trouble keeping my 2004 running after startup. Have been to three different dealers and five visits and the problem is still not resolved. All they do is reflash the PCM. First dealer did replace the EGR, but I know that wasnt the problem as the wire to the EGR mysteriously fell off a while ago. Have had the recalls done...no help. The dealer says that an engineer from Ford will show up some time next week to look at my ride. Dont know what to do at this point, as Ive been out of a ride for almost two weeks know and none of the dealers will provide a loaner or rental. Even spoke to Ford Cust. Serv. and they say they also cant help with the loaner. Go figure. Guess this will be my last Ford, as I cant take this crap anymore from them. Went thru the same crap with GM a few years ago. All stock with no mods. Sorry for the rant but I guess I need to vent.
