Well let me introduce myself as i am new to this site,My name is JR and i have a 01 f-250 7.3 powerstroke.I have noticed alot of info and knowledge on this site with that said I was hopeing to get a little help here. my problem now I replaced my hpop the other day,everything was good started up ran fine whent to car wash cleaned engine off no problems still ran great one hour later truck sputtered and diedwould not start backup..I had it towed to dealer for them to tell me it needs a IDM,3 injectors,glow plugs,and UVCH.THEY SAID IT WOULD COST CLOSE TO $8,000.00 to fix. does that sound rite or am i gonna be another victim of the dealer. any ideas would be helpful and greatly appreciated. they also said only way they could get it to run was by puting a used idm in and it still had problems. what should i do where do i start? Thanks in advance for any help.

You can replace everything they told you for under a grand and about 6 hrs of your time.

Ya there is some injector "How To" in the Tech forum. Glow plugs are very simple. Im sure there is also another tech file on that replacement as well. You can get your injectors rebuilt, or order a set and send back your old ones for a core dept. Go with IH for glowplugs or factory OEM. While your at it replace the valve cover gasket, it has all the wiring for the injectors and glow plugs pre installed in them. The hardest part of the entire job will be getting the darn bolts out closest to the fire wall on the valve covers...

Built engine, rods, pushrods, cam, springs. Meth, turbo, injectors, fuel system, oil system. 3 disk billet, billet shafts built trans, 6.0 IC, exhaust, intake. Latter bars, gears, system, tint, HIDs. You know the typical stuff to make a 7.3 get out of its own way...

After reading the title of the post...., did it run good before the pressure washing?
