    Hello smokey, it appears you are the goto man for many issues. I have one I hope you can help with. I've owned a 99 F450 for the past 6 years and always passed emissions with no issue until now. Now on the 6th year they say I now need a cat due to it being manufactured on 5/98. I asked why now? Did I get lucky the 1st 5 years or were the techs incompetent. I never noticed it did not have a cat but then I had no reason as it always passed emissions. So hopefully you have some good info. Do I have any recourse? The truck has 4" exhaust and again it had never failed emissions. Thank you in advance for any input you might have!

    Smokey, I didn't see the Sticky for the E Series Vans Thread That tells that Wheels, Tires, and suspension is off topic in that thread. Can you move it for me OR tell me if I am allowed to move my own threads and give me a hint where to look for how to do it. My excuse is that I saw that statement about there "not being enough demand to split it any further" And figured that meant the thread was open for anything for E-Series. Thank you & Sorry for the mistake. Tom

    this message is for smokey but if any one else can help here it is.. I was wondering if you knew how I could get better mpg on my 7.3 I have tried already a couple of tricks like cleaning out my ebp tube from the manfld to the engine and I use diesel clean every time I fill up. I have the banks six gun installed in it and I always run on the one setting so I can get the best fuel mileage. I change the fuel filter every time I change the oil too. I am also sure that I only have one fuel filter. its a 2000 7.3. so do you have any ideas.? it has the 3L73 rear end so it should be getting better than 10 mpg thank you

    Thank you for the great reply. My 2005 Honda Ridgeline with navigation also had the display for the backup camera in the Navigation screen and I really miss it. I think I have found a reliable technician who can set me up with the same thing on the F-250. I also found a fellow who sells salvaged wire harnesses and has the one I need.
    Now...what in the world is "a flash of the PCM (main computer) that includes the logic for the backup camera". That has me smiling.

    Hi Smokey,
    I'm Doc (Mar1neDoc). I am new to the forum, and to my 2008 F250 KR. I have been reading the forum and have and enjoying your posts and your smarts about Ford diesels.
    I read that for 2008 Job One King Ranch trucks like mine, the only "unavailable options " were the chrome package, the backup camera, and the larger front air dam. Is that so?
    I ask because I am trying to add the backup camera to my OEM navigation unit. I had to get a replacement tailgate, and the one I got has the step and camera built in.

    99 7.3 just rebuilt new turbo new everything really.. Died on me along the road blowing white smoke and then run fine then black smoke then back to white... Well I called a mechanic and asked him what the deal was. He said check the oil.. the oil was barely touching the stick.. He said that it wasn't receiving enough oil hence not getting enough pressure. Just trying to get a second opinion

    I am RickK, Rick Kimbrell. I conversed with you quite extensively back in 1999/2000 before I ordered my first SuperDuty.
    I ventured away from Ford SuperDutys in 2008 when Ford told me to live with issues with my 2006, they would not fix them. Moved to a 2008 Dodge 3500 MegaCab. Been happy with it but time to move on. Hate what Dodge did with their body style so looking at either a 2013 or waiting to order a 2014.
    Was wondering if you have any words of wisdom about the 2013 or waiting an ordering a 2014? Either 250 or 350 SRW 4x4 CrewCab is what I will be looking for.
    Want you to know that I really value your opinions. The information I received from you back in 99/2000 was invaluable in my decision on what to order.
    Thanks in advance

    Years ago you posted a set of instructions on how to drop a tranny on a 2000 F350. I used it back in 2004 and it was way better than other instructions I had. Since I've moved to Tx I seem to have lost the file. Is there any chance you still have them in your archives?
    I would really be gratefull

    My Sierra Blanca in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it a coupla years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream.
