Your right really doesn't matter, but how do I confirm this is true? The dealer is no help! And there is no indication on the radio head unit that Sirius exists? Thanks for your help fordz1!

I have the factory in dash nav system and radio in my truck. sirius radio was part of that package. On my truck if you push the media button on the radio it brings up a screen that has AM FM1 FM2 CD SR LINE IN at the top of the screen. SR is for sirrus radio By pushing SR on the screen it takes you to sirius radio. If you have sirrus hooked up but no subscription a message will appear with a phone number to call sirius to activate the system. If their is no receiver you will get a message to the effect this function not available. Hope this is some help.

Has anyone deleted the DPF on their 6.4 powerstroke? I have heard of 19mpg with a new exhaust, intake and tuner plus around 600hp. I have the intake and a tuner but I haven't touched the exhaust, yet. What have you heard about it?
#355 of 400 09 F250 Dash Rattle/vibration
Nov 13, 2009 (10:21 am)
I have an 09 F250 that I bought new about a month ago. When I start it up and its idling there is a vibrating comming from the front of the drivers side dash. I have islolated it to the defroster vent opening and noticed that the plastic dash dips down there and almost makes contact with the defroster vent and vibrates against each other at times. I have looked at other F250 08's and 09"s and this seems to be common on the dash, maybe just the way they were cast but very annoying. I am not sure if its just because of the diesel engine vibrating more or not. Has anyone else had this issue of any suggestions for remedy. Not really big on taking it to the dealer and having them mess with it, may just end up with more rattles. Anys suggestions appreciated...

I just traded my DPF and catalytic converter for a four inch staight pipe. I cannot believe the difference. It sounds awesome. The power increase is almost scary. I'll leave new fuel mileage in a few days.
#357 of 400 Raidator leak 08' F250

Just took the my 08 F250 with 42K miles to the dealership and I have a radiator leak. I don't have extended warranty. Does anyone have any suggestions. In reading this forum, it appears that many of you have had this issue. I did get some recall fix with some valve back in Jan 09. But geez, very new truck and already a radiator problem.

What reprograming did you do? Have you had any radiator problems? I have a 2008 F350 with 37300, I get on average 8-9 MPG my Ford dealer says that they don't quote MPG on my truck. I noticed a small coolant leak and took it in today to Ford thay say they think it is a valve that they replaced on a recall and it will be covered under the recall work, but the wanted $270 to check it out. Any one have any luck going to Ford?

My 08 is leaking coolant somewhere. I just put it in the shop today, and was told since my truck is under warrenty they would cover all leaks under the factory warrenty. Once the warranty is up you are on you own unless you have ESP. The radiators are known to leake so it should be taken care of until the problem is resolved.

It was a factory program update. Read page 14 in this forum. I have 78,500 miles on my truck now. I have probably added about 1 gallon of coolant now. I have not saw anywhere it is leaking though. Where on the radiator is your leak?
