Lightbulb Question on ford multi problems

I have a 2001 F-350 7.3 powerstroke, and it surfaced an engine light, and loss power. Took it to the local Ford Dealer which heard later might have been mistake, anyway, they told me #2 and #8 injectors bad, Uv harnesses, Valve Covers, IPR sensor and camshaft position sensor around, $2700.00 repair. Finally here is Question-----Can anyone tell me if it is likely that all these things went wrong at the same time? Or is it possibly a we'll just change all this because we are not sure? Or is it like the older, better theory if you replace this need to replace all that, example clutch bad your there replace throw out bearing and pressure plate as well? Last but not lease Do you think I should just, quit whinning about $3000.00 and fix it all broke or not? Thanks for any and all help!!!!!!!!!!


P.S. Last night I asked if anyone could give me cylinder order for my 2000 should have been 2001 7.3 powerstroke Does this make difference on cylinder order 1234 or 1357.

Also thanks to all last night for you great help.

I wouldn't think the firing order would be any different between those years.. but I could be wrong..

Scuffy is the one you need to talk to or Marc -- They are both Ford techs and will definately get you pointed in the right direction -- although, I think it seems unlikely that ALL of that is wrong

Btw -- did they give you any codes to justify why all that needs to be replaced?

Ray, if you can get the exact code #'s they gave you, there are several on this site that can point you most likely exactly to waht the problem is. You may have several problems also like the dealer said, but it is crazy to hear of ALL that stuff..

btw, are you comfortable doing some of the work yourself? because I guarantee you Scott(Scuffy) or Marc could likely help you look into the under cover harnesses and other things

Just trying to help out a fellow Okie!


Seems to me that $2700 is HIGH! Once you get the covers off -- you could likely replace all that stuff yourself. the CPS (Cam position sensor) is a common failure and is $27 from the dealer and takes 20 min MAX to change... there is even a write-up on it.

Well, before you spend a dime on ebay, definately talk to Scuffy - I am driving to NC for the meet out there specifically for him to work on my truck

He's that good -- and he know's his stuff. I haven't talked with him on the phone, but if I were you, I'd call him tomorrow at Trucks Unlimited in Winston-Salem, NC and tell him your problems and their diagnosis and see what he says. He will definately get you out of a bind quicker and cheaper than you think.
