I have a 2000 Ford F250 with the 6.8 Liter V10
When it is cool and Damp out (Foggy, Moist air) it has a hard time starting...
It will fire right up but then dies imeadiatly afterwards and I have to step
on the gas pedal for a few seconds untill the engine is running steady.
it only does it when it is damp and cool out.
I have the Ford Tech Cd but I cannot find anything that covers this problem.
It did this same thing last year but when I took it to the dealership I was
told that the problem did not exist and that I was worried about nothing.
But once again we have cool wet weather and the problem is back.
if anyone has had this issue I would like to hear how you solved it.
I'd take it back to your dealer and leave it overnight. It is probably out
of warranty, but if was not out of warranty last year, I would "too bad! I
took it last year and you said this wasn't happening. See it is!"
tell ford to wash it off... even spray the engine compartment breifly with
water.... if it dont start then.. they have a problem...
I used to drench my engines and never had a problem starting afterwards...
