Idle gets a lil ruffer when Truck is warmed up...

Idle gets a lil ruffer when Truck is warmed up...

So when i turn on the Excursion it idles nice and super smooth. Then when i notice the motor get to normal engine operating temps. The smooth idle is gone and it vibrates more. Anyone have any idea what this could be?

7.3 is known to idle rough. make sure oil isnt low. hpx from riffraff will quiet it down some and make it smoother

I have a FRX on mine not the hpx and i havent noticed it making any differance in vibration. But there is a reason it vibrates more when the engine is at normal temps as compared to when its cold. Somehow heat is culprit and the PCM might be making some sort of adjustment via a sensor or something is one theory. Would a fuelab fuel pump help not sure on the fuel. Is it oil related i dont know. Ill see if i contact my Ford Mech and ask him what he thinks.

oil and fuel in a powerstroke are directly related, sorry to say. HPx equals out the pressure between the heads so you have less spikes in pressure. if pressure is equlized with no spikes to any injector fuel flows better hence smoother idle

Pull the ICP sensor and check for oil in the connector

I had a truck doing this exact same thing and switching to a heavier oil alleviated the problem....which turned out to be the case because as the oil warmed up it flowed easier and dropped the HPOP pressure. This turned out to be the first symptom of an HPOP that was getting weak.
