  1. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    So I just got done with a project of mine obs 7.3, I put a new alternator on it and it has new motorcraft batteries, but I drive it about 5000 miles and noticed the battery light would come on when I come to a stop, I was 5 hours away from home so I couldn’t test anything so I just threw another...
  2. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    So I have been slowly fixing this truck up. It was a farm truck with alot not taken care of. I go and start it after 2 key sits letting the glow plug light turn off and it makes the starter noise but I feel it is taking a bit to kick over before it starts. Also I have to just about red line it...
  3. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    I am stumped. I bought this truck not running, it shut off the day I was coming to see it. It's a 1995 auto with 141k miles. I put a new CPS in it and it fired right up and ran amazing for 30 seconds. I shut it down because the oil pressure was 0... I forgot to plug in the oil pressure sensor...
  4. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    I'll try and keep this brief. Couple weeks ago the old 300,000 mi 7.3 started acting up. would fire perfect, then start to buck like it was dragging a cylinder or two. Then it would get warm within a block or so and run fine until I shut it off. Outside temps were 70+ degrees and block heater...

  6. 99-03 7.3 Transmission Problems
    I recently got a 2000 7.3 power stroke passed down to me with 322k miles, whenever the truck is driving it’s shifts are a little hard, it would shift and you would get a little kickback. Is the trans on its way out or could it possibly be something else? The truck is stock btw, was used as a...
  7. Early 99 Discussion
    Hey guys, I’m a first time user to this sight, but I could really use some help. I have an early 99 f350 7.3 that I bought off a guy who had it sitting on his farm letting grass grow over it and letting his dog use it for shade. It was surprisingly in good shape interior and exterior and I’ve...

    Hi there, Own a 2014 6.7 myself, but joined the forum to get everyone’s opinion on a list price for selling a 2000 F350 7.3 Supercab 8ft bed with 19k miles. Sadly my father passed away of a heart attack a couple months ago and this truck was his baby. He liked it so much he kept it immaculate...

    Hey guys, 1999 f250 7.3 zf6. Thing starts when cold pretty well but as soon as it warms up has slow throttle response and doesn’t restart. Checking the icp it it’s only making 350-400 when hot. Replaced IPR and ICP, charged high pressure system with shop air and there’s no apparent leak. Double...
  10. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    HI everybody, Thanks for reading my post! I'll get straight to the point. On startup, the truck will idle smooth for about 1 minute, then it hiccups and blows a big cloud of smoke and the passenger side bank shuts off. I have replaced both UVCH, and all injector O rings. All injectors and glow...

    I’ve gone through and rebuilt some ad injectors this last weekend and for the first 5 everything went great. However, I’ve had a couple that I had to stop rebuilding completely due to the fact that some didn’t have the metal gasket that goes in between the solenoid and the metal spacer. Do you...
  12. 94-98 7.3L Interior Discussion
    I don't need anyone to tell me it's stupid and not worth it. To me it is, all logic aside. I have a 97 f350 crewcab auto 7.3. I want to take on the job of fabricating an entire dash. The whole interior is going to be redone and basically removing all plastic with either metal or leather. I know...
  13. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Hey all. Mind listening to a video clip for me? I know it’s hard to hear much recording a 7.3 lol but you should be able to hear this. It’s like an intermittent chirp. Mainly heard at idle and right as I give it gas and after rpm’s drop. Seems like noise is coming from everywhere ha. You know...
  14. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    I have posted this same thing just about everywhere. As well as had my van in a couple of high end diesel shops that just don’t know where to go either. My 1998 E350 7.3 is a beautiful pristine condition Van. It got roughly 18.5-19 mpg driving 70-75 mph on the highway. All day, everyday. For...
  15. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Hello, I have 2000 F-250 7.3 and Unfortunately the previous owner put his knee on the oil pressure sensor pigtail. The gauge was dancing up and down for awhile but now has decided to completely stop working and leaving the oil pressure warning light on. My question is- Does that sensor...
  16. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    I have seen many forums and none of them seem to have come to a resolution, at least that I have read. I have been through 4 PS pumps in about 6-7 years. Sitting in park, no foot on brake, cannot turn the wheel. I basically have no powersteering AT ALL in low RPM range. This makes backing a...
