#988 of 1236 break problem
Dec 09, 2007 (4:30 am)
This is my first post, so hello to all ford lovers! I have a 2001 f-250 super duty s cab with the v-8 and I love it, however I am having problems with the breaks,I had to replace all 4 rotors and pads at 28000 miles, I talked to my mech. and he said this is a problem on all ford trucks, the guides for the pads get corroded and the pads hang up on the rotor, now 30 days latter its happing again I would just like to know if other ford owners have had this problem and what they did to fix it.
thank you, derf

I thought the anti sway bar runs the length of the rear end. These bars run parallel to the frame and body, not at a 90 degree angle to them. These bars are about three or so feet long. I appreciate your help with this problem. If you think that is what they are called, I will try using that terminology.

Your original post sounded like you were describing sway bars. It sounds like your truck has a camper package that fortifies the ass end. That is probably what you are dealing with, the camper arms or what the dealer called them. I do not have that package and as a result would be unable to help you. I can't tell you what it is if I can't see it. Good luck

This is my first post in the F-250 area, so hello to everyone. My questions is that I am actually wanting to sell my 2001 F-250 crew cab diesel. It is a great truck and looks and runs great but I do not have a need for this room and power anymore since I sold my boat and camper. The 7.3 turbo diesel is strong! Can anyone give me an idea of a fair starting point for a sales price? I don't think the NADA or other sources are accurate for these trucks, they hold their value so well and are in high demand. It has 108,600 miles and has the Lariat package along with other extras such as nerf bars, brush guard,spotlights and tool box.

I have the shop manuals for the truck. The only question is how to get a picture to you so you can see what I am talking about. Any ideas? This noise is getting louder and more obnoxious. Thanks.

Thanks for the response on my question about mileage with our new truck.
I have now nearly 4000 miles on it and found that my miles-per-gallon increased up to nearly 12 mpg as my mileage increased while pulling a 14000 lb load. I was pulling this load for about 3500 of those miles..
I am becoming more pleased with both the mileage and the performance of the truck as the days go on..
Perhaps others have good responses as well?
#995 of 1236 1993 f-250 4x4 tire wear question
Dec 12, 2007 (7:19 am)
I should know this, but I have forgotten- my front passenger tire is wearing faster than the other 3, but on both outside edges- ball joints, or what? (I have new shocks )
any quick cheap replacements for the aspirator tubes? I replace these almost yearly.. finally patched with blue hi temp hose, but that is a short term fix too.
The saddle tank.... seems to be very pricey to replace... looking for a economy tank?
OK, I'm listening
#996 of 1236 Cetane Boosters / Improved MPG
Dec 14, 2007 (11:01 am)
I have read a number of posts concerning the MPG gained when using Cetane Boosters. This being said, I did a little researching for myself. The following link, http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/2000-07/964403830.Ch.r.html has brought another side of the equation. While I am not convinced to believe either argument I am still thirsty for more documented results.

Back to basics. Check your air pressure. Wearing on outside edges is a sign of LOW Air Pressure, wearing of the middles of the tires is Over Inflated or HIGH Air Pressure.
