  1. Blue diesel fuel?

    General Diesel
    Our off-road diesel that we use in our fleet of heavy equipment is darker in color than on-road diesel we use in our trucks (bright yellow). It looks similar to the darker fuel in your photo. Any chance that may be the case? I'm not sure what the difference is as far as additives.

    Needed new tires so I decided to change the wheels while I was at it. Gives her a whole new look. Center caps for the front are on backorder.

    2008- 2010 General Questions
    I have a Kenwood 571 navi head unit in my 2010 and love it. Navi works great, bluetooth works great and it's packed with alot of features; Pandora, iHeart Radio, etc. and both Sync and steering wheel controls still work with it as well.

  6. 2010 6.4L Misfire at idle?

    6.4L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    So we're getting ready to leave for Christmas eve dinner with family last night and I'm waiting in the truck for the wife and kids. Truck was idling and every 10-15 seconds the rpm would stumble about 50-75 rpm, truck would shake for a second and then go back to normal. I've never noticed this...

    US Navy, 8 years. Operation Desert Shield/Storm. Nothing as intriguing as SF but still had our adventures. Enjoy your retirement and have a great Christmas and New Year.

  9. Buying a high mileage truck (100+k)

    2008- 2010 General Questions
    It sounds like a nice truck. Hopefully you can get it through inspection.
  10. Buying a high mileage truck (100+k)

    2008- 2010 General Questions
    I would think that as long as all of the scheduled maintenance was completed and you have records of oil changes, fuel filter changes, etc. you shouldn't have a problem. Do you know if there was any major warranty work done to it? When I bought mine I had a friend who is a service writer at a...
  11. Buying a high mileage truck (100+k)

    2008- 2010 General Questions
    I've had it deleted since around 85k. My dpf filter was clogged and needed replacing so I bit the bullet and yanked it. A friend of mine did his delete at 120 and now has around 200. No issues that I know of. His is an 09.
  12. Buying a high mileage truck (100+k)

    2008- 2010 General Questions
    I have a 2010 with 150k trouble free miles on the engine. Full DPF delete and turbo back exhaust. Only problems I have encountered are interior cabin issues and electrical gremlins with the trailer wiring harness. Other than that, much more trouble free than my 99 7.3 I owned previously. Should...
  13. The dreaded blend door actuator

    2008- 2010 General Questions
    Thanks Mark. That is good info. I'll give this a try. Definitely less expensive than a trip to the dealer.
  14. The dreaded blend door actuator

    2008- 2010 General Questions
    Thanks for the info. I figured it was wishful thinking but I thought I'd ask anyway.
  15. The dreaded blend door actuator

    2008- 2010 General Questions
    So I'm driving today and noticed a weird ticking, computer type noise coming from under my dash. I also notced that I was getting heat from the drivers side vent but cold air from the passenger vents. I'm afraid this is the blend door actuator I've read about. My question is, has Ford issued any...
  16. Rotella T6

    6.7L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    I use T6 5 W 30 at 7500 mile intervals and buy it in 2-1/2 gallon containers from my local AutoZone at $54.99 each. I've had nothing but good results from this oil. I do have the DPF delete so I wouldn't know about more frequent regen cycles. Great oil in my opinion.
  17. 7.3L Winter Mpg

    1999-2007 General Questions
    Sorry AD. I must have had a brain fart when I saw the header. You are correct, that is mileage for my 6.4. Our 02 7.3 delivery truck is averaging 14 this time of year. It jumps to around 15 during the summer. My 6.4 is fairly steady at around the 18 through the summer (not towing). Sorry for the...

  19. '08 6.4L programmer newb questions

    6.4L Upgrades and Aftermarket - Engine
    I run the GearboxZ DPF-R 4.0+ on my 2010 6.4 with the economy tune. It is a mild tune that gives you 70 hp and much better fuel economy. I partnered this with a Flo-Pro turbo back exhaust and I have noticed significant gains in mpg. The extra 70 hp is a nice bonus. You can feel the added power...
