    Unhappy MY Ford PSD died today

    99 Ford F250 PSD with one of the early Hypertech chips. Just quit running two blocks from my house. Drained and changed the fuel filter and noticed the filter housing will not refill. This thing only has 58,000 miles on it. Im hoping its covered under the 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty. I got an oppurtunity to take the mechanic aside at the dealership and told him about the "chip". He was fine with it and stated he wouldnt tell Ford about it. He said they would yank my warranty quick if they knew it was in there. After talking to him, he hopped in my truck and it fired right up. Ran for about 5 minutes and shut off again. Any guesses on what the problem is.

    To make my day even better. The oral surgeon had to reopen my gums and grind down some bone spurs that formed after having my wisdom teeth yanked a month ago. My face looks like a balloon. I just popped another Percocet and these problems should be fading soon

    By law Ford CANNOT yank your warranty for having the chip.

    I had to change mine a couple months ago. I'm out of warranty,cost about 70.00 from a big truck supply shop. I got all my info from the ford diesel link above,great sight for info on the PSD. Scott

    I have heard that there is nothing Ford service can do about the chip changing the warranty status on the vehicle. My dealer Brondes in Toledo NEVER had a issue with it,they even sold them.

    My 99 would do that every now and then. It turned out that the chip was not making real good conection through the diagnostic port on the ECM. I took the ECM out and scotch brited more of the proctective coating off the port contacts and never had the problem again.

    My "unchipped" unit is still waiting to run you. Maybe you could flatbed it up here to Ontario and we could "race" with the engines off down the local hill.
    Good Luck.

    It sounds a lot like the cam position sensor gone bad. It's an all too common occurrance. You need to keep spares in your glove box like fuses and light bulbs...
