#1077 of 1235 2003 Ford F250 Super Duty 6.0L BLOWN UP
Oct 15, 2008 (9:39 am)
I have a 2003 F250 with the 6.0L. 62k miles, serviced religiously. Very few problems until last week when a bolt broke on a piston rod and destroyed the entire block. A total freak accident according to the dealer. They, the dealer, gave me a quote of $15,000 for a replacement engine. That's 15 with three zeros! Just insane. Still not sure what I'm going to do. Anyone have a similar story?

#1083 of 1235 F250, 1997, Transmission Shifting Hard
Nov 18, 2008 (1:10 pm)
I have a F250 4X4 auto trans, 191k miles, yesterday the light began flashing on my shift lever and transmission began to shift hard from 2nd through 4th gears with a noticable thud and jerk. What is the cause and likely cost?
#1084 of 1235 Heated seats add on
Nov 26, 2008 (1:55 am)
I have a Ford F250 Lariat. It does not have the heated seats option. How hard is it to get this option installed? Isn't the wiring already there? How much would it cost and can it be done? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
#1085 of 1235 what chip should i get?

i have a 2003 lifted ford f250 superduty turbodiesel. its real nice but i want better gas mileage and more horses. any recommendations on what chip would be best. i heard a triple bully dog would be good.

Negative!!!!!!!!!!! That chip is crap. Get hypertech. Hypertech is a programer and is a very safe and effective way to up your MPG and horses. You can go to www.hypertech.com and watch the videos comparing the different chips etc. Hypertech blows them out of the water. Just keep an eye on your turbo boost pressures. Also, remember that any change to the stock motor can void the warranty. You should look into that. Lastly, I have heard of blown head gaskets with your model truck, but nothing directly linked to the hypertech programmer. Good luck
