Comments: want to thank you for the detailed instructions for changing ball joints on 2002 f 250 4wd
you saved me. the chilton book i have said don't even do it you self. guy at alignment shop thought i was auto mechanic when i told him i replaced myself.
i cannot thank you enough.
Admin reply: J, glad my info was helpful. I have found the modern Chilton's lacking. When a teenager, I had a 71 Nova, and my Chilton manual was awesome. The modern ones try to cover to many model variations in one book.

Comments: Out standing information web site. Having to do my own repairs as I cannot ofen afford the help of experts such as the dealerships getting good info is golden- by using the step by step procedures on how to replace ball joints and seals I was able to fix my truck and still have money in my pocket to pay all those other annoying bills. Great site Dude. Thank you from me and my family. Dean B. Tacoma Wa.

Comments: Thank you! Your site is amazing. I have a 2000 Excursion with that engine and you have saved me THOUSANDS of $$$ that would have gone to the dealership instead of literally food on the table.
That you took the time and effort to do this has helped so much. Once again Thanks!
Admin reply: Bill,
You're welcome! Glad you found my info useful. I too, love it when I can save some money by doing things myself. Thanks a lot for taking the time to comment!
Comments: Some nice write-ups. Will definitely help with my '04 F250SD Crewcab 6.0 powerstroke 4x4. I do all my own work, and often find that the manuals are lacking.
Admin reply: Thanks, Nick.

Comments: Hi there... Love your site. I have a troubleshooting question, I have a 2002 PSD that for the last month or so has been randomly shuting off (no brakes, powersteering and no dash lights) while driving. It has happened at freeway speeds and at idle. I have replaced the Cam Sensor three times. It will restart sometimes after a few minutes, hours or days. Seems to happen at operating temps within 30-50 miles of starting. Any thoughts???
Admin reply: Hello Lou. That sure sounds like the cam sensor except for the dash lights. I don't think the dash light go out upon cam sensor failure. Sounds like you definitely have an electrical problem but I could't guess what. Intermittent problems like this can be the devil to find. Sorry I can't help you. Let me know what you find, if you don't mind.
Best of luck. Jerry

Comments: I'm getting ready to add a Frantz Bypass filter that I purchased used off of the internet. I was just wondering which size of stainless steel covered hose did you use when you changed the lines from rubber? Also, where and why did you put shut off valves on the new lines? Down by the block or up by the filter? Just curious as to why as well.
Thanks for a great site and for sharing the info.
