About Ford F-250 HD

The Ford F-250 HD, as a full-size and heavy duty commercial truck, was produced by the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company from 1996 to 1997. Belonging to the Ford F-Series Super Duty, the Ford F-250 HD could be seen as the ninth-generation Ford F-Series or first-generation F-Series Super Duty. The Ford F-250 HD could be also regarded as the replacement for the F-250 as they both weighed 3/4 ton. But after the 1997 model year, the Ford F-250 HD was replaced by the Ford Super Duty. 
The Ford F-250 HD made its debut in 1996 for the 1997 model year and came with many different configurations from chassis cab. It was offered in base, XL, XLT and 4x4 off-road trim levels and received a heavier rear axle and heavier springs and shocks comparing to the earlier F-250. Meanwhile, it was available with options for crew cab short bed and extended cab short bed. During its lifetime, the Ford F-250 HD was powered by the 4.9 L I6 engine rated at 150 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, 5.0 L V8 engine producing 205 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, 5.8 L V8 engine cranking out 210 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque and 7.5 L V8 engine generating 245 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque and these engines sent power through 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and 4-speed, 5-speed manual transmissions.

Ford F-250 HD Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Though backed by the power of Ford, the Ford F-250 HD as a pickup truck still has the mission of carrying and loading heavy goods traveling long distance. After long-term exposure to such labor intensity, you may find these common problems on your vehicle: 
First, suspension failure. This issue was reported as the worst issue on the Ford F-250 HD. You may have heard of it though it normally won't result in drivability trouble. Some Ford F-250 HD drivers are happy to offer some signs to help you prevent this issue in advance. According to them, clunking or squeaking sounds from underneath the vehicle would not only distract their attention but also the main culprit of uneven excessive tire wear and tilting vehicle. Meanwhile, the intense vibration, bouncing while driving and loose steering wheel may put you in the danger of poor handling. Thus, once these symptoms appear on your vehicle, you should give the wheel bearing, shock absorber, sway bar bushing, sway bar link and coil spring insulator a thorough inspection. 
Second, braking failure. This issue is serious by hearing of it as the braking system has the close relationship with the possibility of reached your destination safely or not. Lucky for you is that some owners stated that before the braking system failed completely, you could get these signs first. You could hear brakes giving out strange noisy sound when applying to the brakes, which also will respond slowly or poorly. At the same time, the brake pedal would become spongy or pulsating so that you may slip. If you start to inspect the braking system, you may also find score marks on the rotors. For your driving safety, you are advised to inspect the brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum and brake rotors once these symptoms arise on your vehicle. 
Another tip that you must bear in mind is that routine maintenance on your vehicle is essential. In the Ford F-250 HD, some auto parts including wiper blades, headlights, fog lights, cabin air filters, antennas, emblems, door handle and some electrical parts are rather vulnerable and could not last as long as the vehicle could. You are supposed to maintain them regularly to keep your vehicle in the best shape possible.
