So I picked up a 2000 F-350 with the 7.3 with 180k miles. It wasnít running when I got it so I had my mechanic go through and fix whatever it needed using all motorcraft parts which was
-valve cover gaskets and harnesses
-injector pump Fuel pump or injection pressure regulator (IPR) or low pressure oil pump or? These trucks don't have "injector pump???
-fuel filters These trucks only have ONE fuel filter if its the stock set up so what did the invoice say?
-5 injectors Why only 5 injectors what was their reasoning and what brad/where did the come from?
Right now whenever I start the truck after itís been sitting overnight it runs really rough unless I let idle for about 10 mins. Feels like a noticeable misfire and if you try to drive it thereís virtually no power until the turbo spoils around 2500rpm. Also smells like itís dumping a lot of fuel at idle and gets about 9mpg. It runs fine after it warms up but still feels like itís lacking low end power for a diesel. Towing my 6,000lb boat I definitely can tell itís back there. Iím pretty sure the truck has a banks chip/tune with intake and 4Ē exhaust. Any ideas? Mechanic said he double checked all injectors and theyíre good. Was thinking CPS sensor next?
See my questions/input in red.
The truck may run a little rough when its working air out of the hpop system but usually in less than a day its gone. How long since the work? Also get proof its all motocraft because the truck should be running top notch with the new parts. Common for people to get told by mechanics they were oem motocraft but they were really OEM EQUIVILENT AKA parts store junk esp regarding dorman.
Usually bad cps is random no starts/dieing etc. The noticeable misfire could be one of the UVCH connections not seated/clipped all the way on one or more injectors etc.
