Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Ford F250 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 76000 miles
I have been having a problem with my truck for years and noboby can seem to find the problem.
There is at least 3 thing that is happening all and seem to be associate with each other. On numerous occasion with starting in the vehicle for the first time that day. The vehicle seems like the brakes are somewhat engaged (Dragging) and the brake pedel is stiff like the old brakes without the power assist. Once when I was bleeding the front brake I could not turn the wheel until I opened the bleeder then all the wheels rotated easy.
2. The vehicle seems to develope a miss.
3. The front end starts to vibrate.
4. Forgot about the not starting sometimes while this is going on. I turn the vehicle off and go shopping or to even refueling and the damn thing won't start. I have to go and disconnect the batteries and the it will start.
The biggest problem is that everytime this happen I take it to the dealership and the problem is not there anymore.
I have replace several brake components to include the power steering pump.
This is a 7.3 engine.
I am tried of this problem and I am looking for a fix and not just changing parts.
have the same problem?
