It'll work as far as reading/clearing codes, but you can't do functional tests with it like buzz or contribution tests.

Autoenginuity seems to be the most popular for the Powerstrokes. It works in conjunction with your laptop and is software based. You would need the Enhanced Ford Package to read all of the Powerstroke codes and it comes with the OBDII interface cable.

Well, the Snap-On Scanner's really popular with functional tests for PSDs. They're a dime-a-dozen on ebay & really easy to use. The problem with the Scanner is it's obsolete as hell(most Snap-On dealers won't even take it in for a trade!), & if you have more than 1 newer vehicle, it won't be very useful to you as Snap-On's stopped making software for the Scanner as of '08. I've kept my Scanner for the current vehicles my dad & I work on. After these vehicles are gone, it's time to save up for a Solus.

For the cost of a code reader that will only read codes. You can get Auto Enginuity that will do some tests and help you trouble shoot.

If you get Auto Enginuity you will ned the Ford Enhanced Powertrain package. Due to the fact that the Powerstroke Diesel is OBDII exempt.

I am thinking you might have a bad injector.

leaking icp?

thanks for the input. put some atf in it today and drove it around thinking i would get some old oil out of the gallies and clean the injectors......no change then i smelled diesel under the hood. after a little wiping i found a diesel leak and i think it is the ICP ???? it is screwed into the fuel filter housing pointing out the drivers side of the truck. What do you think?
