Check the positive connections on the starter, had a 99 which the terminal actually cracked and was not contacting. Also check the solenoid under hood, if it is not clicking it is no good. Also check the connections at the solenoid, which, I believe is mounted on the right fender. If all else fails, try tapping on the starter with a hammer, its possible that there is a bad spot on the starter armature. If it starts after the hammer tap, then it is time for a new starter. Hope this helps!

#1198 of 1234 Extended Warranty

We have a 2007 F250 Diesel and would like to see about getting an extended warranty. But we are not sure where to start and who to trust. Does anyone have any suggestions on where the best place is to buy an extended warranty?

Has anyone problem towing a camper or enclosed trailer? I just pull a 14 foot enclosed trailer from Conway SC to Maggie Valley NC my avg fuel mileage there was 7.2 coming back 8.8. Rear end makes noise pulling camper.

We pull our 25 ft Jay Feather and get about 12mpg on it--also depends on wind direction going thru Kansas...we have never had any trouble, always had a smooth and relatively quiet ride (as quiet as it can get in a truck anyway)--no noise from the rear end. We had a stabilizer installed on the trailer to make it a smooth ride...do you have one on yours? It may make a difference.

Hello at 66000 miles this is the 2nd time the turbo got rebuilt. On my truck the variable disk in the turbo is getting stuck. The rebuild with new parts. Check with the Dealer to see if they will cover it.
