Engine Trouble 7.3 L

Engine runs rough like it is missing. Only can get up to 50 mph at 2200 rpms. No warning lights have come on. Could this mean fuel pump is going out? Possibly a turbo issue not providing enough boost?

Welcome to the ORG.!

Try checking the fuel pressure and make sure the filter is good.

My 99 is doing a similar thing. It runs rough. Like a dropped cylinder. But then if I shut it off and restart all is well. It doesn't do it all the time, now if I am on the highway there is no problem at all it is just when I am driving around town or at slow speeds. Any Ideas?

I would like to thank all of the men and women of the armed services who are putting there lives on the line for my family's freedom.

Check for a loose connector at the Valve coners. If good there, try a buzz test.

Engine Trouble

What is a buzz test? Currently changing fuel filter and doing an oil and filter change. Noticed some a bit of oil in valley. Heard from others this could be a leak at the HPOP or turbo pedistal. Is this correct?

A buzz test needs to be done by the dealer or a repitubal diesel shop , U need soft ware an a laptop and a connection to the OBD2 (My single injector malfunction did NOT show up in any codes), .... and after that the soft ware will also do a contrubution test an will tell you the health of each induvudial cylender...

Engine Trouble 7.3L

Thanks for letting me know and the heads up on what they can do during the buzz test? The truck goes into the Dealer next week to get some leaks fixed on the axle. I will have them do a buzz test for me. New fuel filter is in. The old one was a little dirty and buildup in some places. Changed the oil and filter. Started the truck and all seems fine again. Will have to wait till this weekend to drive and tell if this has made a difference.
