  1. 6.0L Electronics Discussion
    Hi guys, new to the forum and I’ve been doing a lot of reading these past couple days but I can’t find anyone with quite the same problems that I am having. I recently bought a 2005 6.0l with 215k. Driving around the past two days I have noticed that occasionally at idle (seems to only be when...
  2. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Okay everyone, I am in need of your expertise. I apologize upfront for the lengthy explanation below. A couple days ago I tried to start my 02' F-250 7.3 with an automatic transmission and got no crank and no start. It sat for 5 days before this without being started and the temperatures here...
  3. 6.0L Problems Forum
    I purchased a 2005 XLT 6 days ago. Has 172k miles. Runs great, have an edge insight CTS2 on it and no codes when I bought it. 3 days ago, I started it up in the morning and fuel gauge was buried below E and center display said low fuel. I had filled it the day before and had only driven it...
  4. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    I did a bunch of reading before I bought this truck, and the seller said it really just needed a new battery as far as he could tell. When I bought it, I drove a considerable distance with no problems, other than it seeming to be a little sluggish with acceleration. I have not seen any...
  5. 6.7 Motor Problems (2011-2016)
    Batteries seem to hold a charge, they were at 11.5 volts this AM after sitting overnight. The starter engages, then drops out immediately. No solenoid chatter like you would get with bad batteries. Sometimes it will engage, then disengage, then engage again, like you were just tapping the...
  6. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    Hey everyone, I just bought a late model 99 7.3. It's rust free and just passed inspection. It runs and drives good. I tried to start it the other day when it was 10 degrees Celsius outside. It cranked but wouldn't start, and there was no movement on the tachometer. I plugged it in overnight...
  7. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Hey guys, I have a 2005 F250 Harley and there has a been a check engine light so I used my SCT Tuner to see what the problem was and it gave me the code: P0675 Cylinder 5 Glow Plug Circuit Open, which I don't think it's that big of a problem to replace/repair. Then, I tried to "Clear the DTC" to...
  8. Engine 911
    First let me say thanks for the info over the years. Read a lot but never posted before. 04 F-250, 6.0, Single Cab, 4x4, 120k miles. Driving last night and about a mile in my ABS light comes on and no radio power. Then I notice that I have no gauges. Turn around to head back home and the...
  9. 911 Urgent Situations
    I have a 08 6.4 350. In the mornings when I start it up, it acts like it barely wants to crank. It cranks super slow, like the battery is low. If it sits for a while in the middle of the day it also acts like it barely wants to crank over. Checked both batteries, they are good, and they are...
  10. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    After looking around this site, Ive seen a few posts from others using solar panels to charge their batteries (as the truck sits for a longer period of time). My question: Having my truck sit (for a week sometimes), is it safe to install a solar panel on a permanent basis and leave it...
