  1. 99-03 7.3 Transmission Problems
    Hey guys, First time poster here, Ive used the search function and haven't found anything that's specific to my problem. I put in a new saftey switch after determining the old one was faulty, and ever since I put the new one in, the OD light flashes after 15-30 seconds in park. I've tried to...
  2. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    Hello, I'm going to attempt changing the glow plugs on my E350 shuttle bus next month. This is the first time I will have worked on this engine(or any diesel for that matter) so I have been looking for walk-throughs and couldn't find a whole lot, what I did find was this write up from Kerry on...
  3. Introductions
    Greetings, I just bought a 2010 E350 w/ a 6.0L Powerstroke (17k miles). First big truck diesel (not counting marine diesels), so much to learn and plan for fixing the known 6.0 issues, but hopefully I have a few miles before I need to do them. It's got a dual filtration Amsoil engine lube...
  4. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    Hey guys - I'm thinking about buying this van. There is a problem though and that is the 4wd shifter to the right of the driver seat. It will be in my way when I transfer to the seat because I an a quadriplic and the seat needs to spin so I can get in it. My question: Can the shifter be...
  5. E-Series Van Discussion
    Hi everyone, I am looking at a 2006 Ford E-350 SD XL 5.4L V8. It's got about 120k miles and it seems to be in good condition. I'm going to get it checked out by a mechanic before I buy it but I was wondering if anyone has any personal experience with this particular van. What types of things...

    I am looking at buying a used E350 in Canada. However I live in California where we have to pass smog. After calling the Ford manufacturere and giving them the VIN# I was informed that the vehicle is EPA certified for emissions in 49 states. Has anyone smogged this type and year of ford with...

  8. 94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke Discussion
    Hey guys, So I just got a 95 E350 with the 7.3 turbo. I just took it on its maiden voyage after it had been sitting for a couple of years. I changed the oil checked topped off all of the fluids. It had a vegetable oil system on it that I removed. I put all of the fuel lines as much back to...
  9. General 6.0L Discussion
    Ok, so I have a 2005 E350 Ambulance. Its been difficult navigating through these posts due to the very limited E-series topics. That also does not take into account my little knowledge of diesel engines, let alone a powerstroke... Ive done enough homework to know the troubled history of 6.0's...
  10. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    Hello all, I posted a thread (poll) abut swapping van bodies from a gas to diesel a ways back. That project is still in works but in the meantime I picked up rust free early '99 (built 10/98) E350 for peanuts. Only issues aside from needing a good cleaning was the passenger fuel line rubbed on...

  14. E-Series Van Discussion
    Hi all, I have a '98 E-350 PSD and I am unfortunately really not loving the front seats. My particular van has had some weird previous lives as a "camper" and had some odd interior changes done. Bottom line - I'm looking for some upgraded seats. The current ones have minimal lumbar support...
  15. 94-98 7.3 Trannie Problems
    Hi all, Just starting to get my van back in shape now that I'm getting ready to be towing my cars around quite a bit. I bought this van back in 2005/6 or so from a guy who used to tow a camper with it. It's a 1998 E-350 with the 7.3, and the previous owner had done some mods to "support" his...
  16. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    This picture is of the #8 cylinder in a motor out of a 2001 E350, I am planning on putting it in a 2002 F250. It was purchased from a wrecking yard, supposedly it ran good when pulled with 163k miles on it. It was on an old tire on a pallet when I got it. The oil pan was punched with a...
  17. Wheels, Tires, and Brakes
    Would greatly appreciate it if someone could shed some light on how I determine the correct wheels for my e350 bus. Background: It's titled as a 95', though it was actually made in 94 (7.3 IDI). Originally used by a transportation company to shuttle seniors around, it was take out of service...

    I have a 2003 E350 7.3L. After starting up, will run ok for about 20-30 minutes of driving, then will lose almost all power, shuddering. If I stop for 10-20 minutes, then restart, will run sorta ok for a little, then same problem again. Has been to mechanic 4 times, and they are clueless. It...
  19. General 6.0L Discussion
    I thought I'd follow up on eagledieselmedic's excellent EGR valve write-up for those of us unfortunate souls who get to tinker on the van version of this engine. I definitely followed those directions, as well as some of the diagrams from Alldatadiy to do this job. For those expecting to...
  20. General 6.0L Discussion
    Hi everyone, I've just purchased a 2004 E350 Chateau van with 157000km (98K miles) with a 6.0L engine. While I talked to the mechanic that previously maintained this vehicle, I don't think he specialized in diesel (or at least 6.0L) engines so I'm trying to get on top of maintenance for this...
