OT: Help with hubs truck

(also posted in alt.trucks.ford)

The problem child here is a 1999 F250 turbo diesel 4x4 with about 120k on
the clock.

The electric vacuum pump blew a couple of fuses and then finally went out a
week or so ago and we got a used one to replace it. The 'new' pump was
tested before we left the yard, and it seemed to work. When installed it ran
up once or twice then died. Died completely. The fuse has been checked and
is ok.

Has anoyme else run up agtainst this problem? If so what is the solution you
have come up with.
It needs to be repaired because it's 90+ degrees and the AC isn't working.

My personal preference would be to drive it off into the river or set it
afire, but you know how men are about their trucks!

TIA

Kate

(again, also posted in the trucks forum)

In the last year this truck has ALSO blown the 4WD shift motor (still has
not been replaced since last winter) , the same week that the vacuum pump
went out it blew the lock actuator in the driver's side door. I replaced the
actuator, it is working fine. I don't recall if they both went on the same
day.

Sounds like you are having some sort of common electrical problem that is
consuming your electrical components?

common as in common to the electrical components, not as in a well known
commonplace problem.

Re: Help with hubs truck

The vacuum pumps are a fairly common concern.... the used one may have been
ready to suck it's last breath from the day you got it. I'd spring for a new
one (along with the service parts warranty). Just to be sure there's no
gremlins hiding, have the charging system voltage tested at 2000 or so rpm
with all accessories off and again with the charging system "loaded" to be
sure it's not over-volting...

Those of us with a favorite curmudgeon know this, and keep the secret to
ourselves
If word got out, there might be a shortage.
