    I searched the site and only found the recommendation for Powerstroke Magic in Cypress, TX. Any other recommendations for a good shop/mechanic in the greater Houston area for an OBS 7.3 specifically? I'm in the market for one and understand that I may have to go out of state for the right...

    Bought my first diesel and it’s a 7.3 f350. With new ventures came new problems. This is the first I’m hearing of a vehicle needing a frame alignment. With this new truck I got a wheel alignment done and was told the toe is off center. No accident history and no salvage title so I hope this is...

    Hello, I'm new to the forum and new to diesels, so pardon my ignorance. I've recently purchased an E450 shuttle bus and am converting it into a RV style vehicle.

    Hey everyone, I crashed my F250 into a street sign. As a result, I need a new front left fender and drivers side door. Does anyone know if I could find a manual door and swap out the internals to make it electric? Like use all of the original door parts besides the actual metal door? I assume...

    So the transmission in my 97 7.3 F250 was having trouble shifting into over drive and was holding gears too long. I took it to the transmission shop and they rebuilt my trans and replaced all the worn out parts. I got it back when they were done and it seemed they had done nothing to it. I took...

    Hey so I just bought a 1995 7.3 with 290k miles for $250 It does run leaks oil and gas low compression in two cylinders. Shops want 5k for a rebuild but I can’t afford that I’m paying for school. Does anyone think that it could be something else? Easier or cheaper fix? I would rebuild it myself...

    First post to this form but I've been struggling with a problem for a long time now. For whatever reason no matter what I have a hard stutter around 2300 rpms. It's really noticeable at idle as when the gas is wot it will climb, reach 2300 rpm and then misfire like a MF for a second or 2 and...

    Hello I recently bought a 2001 f250 with a 7.3. When a friend was following me he said my front driveshaft was turning. While driving it does not hop when taking a corner or seem to kinda bind up. When we were doing an oil change and had both front wheels off the ground and truck in park we...

    Hey all, so I unfortunately am going to have to sell my F250 crew cab long bed 7.3L. I will be needing to tow bigger loads and the single wheel F250 isnt going to cut it. So I quite like the look of the 2011-2014 6.7 Duallys. I guess my question is, should I just look for a 7.3 Dually, from...

    I recently purchased an amazing 1997 Ford F-350 diesel. There is a "switch" on the dashboard, and I have no idea what it is for. I have looked online, looked in the manual, and reviewed 15 years of maintenance logs; all with no indication as to what it is and what it does. It definitely appears...
