    I have a 2002 7.3 E450 school bus that needs new glow plugs. What should I expect for cost at a shop?
  2. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    #1 Do I replace my injectors if I’m already doing the glow plugs? #2 If I don’t plug in my 2000 7.3 it has a terrible time starting. Is this just a glow plug issue?

    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...
  4. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Hello everyone! We were just traveling in our bus, 2001 E-350 super duty cutaway, 7.3L Powerstroke, when it suddenly lost power going uphill. Started rattling and shaking, barely made it past 25mph. Not a rattling sound, more of a bumpy ride, as if the engine didn't get enough fuel. I pulled...

    I admit I'm clueless... With that out of the way :grin: I was thinking of asking Santa for a remote start for Christmas... I live in central Ohio and it can get really cold (single digit below 0F or colder) at times here in the winter months. My truck is too tall to fit in the garage and I...

    I have looked through several threads before posting to determine I might need a glow plug relay. Well I bought one and still no starting, bought another today and still nothing. The glow plugs will heat up if I jump the posts on the relay with a screwdriver. I actually got this 2000 F350...

    My truck doesn't want to start in cold weather. I crank the engine and only fires a few times per attempt. I checked the glow plug relay and it works the way it should. Everything works the way it should when the key is turned on. I think the glow plugs are bad. I need some advise.
  11. 6.0 Motor problems
    Hello everyone, First off, I'd like to start that this is my first post but I'm a long time reader of these forums. This is such a great site, with such extensive answers that I've never needed to post my own problem. With that being said, I've encountered an issue with my 03 f250 6.0 that...

    I have owned my 2000 7.3 for two winters now, the truck has 136k and I replaced the GPs, and GP Relay, and two new batteries when I first bought it. It seems to crank really slow and when it fires up it does a lope idle for a few seconds before smoothing out at any temp below 35 degrees it...

    So in mid December I bought 8 new glow plugs, after testing the ones in the truck only 3 were still operating...... No wounder right. Do not knowing any better I bought 8 autolites. PLEASE don't buy autolites. I had 2 go out in 2 months. So after some research most people have bad luck with...
  17. 94-98 7.3 Motor Problems
    Got a 97 7.3l awhile back. It POURS white smoke as you are cranking to start. Much more so on cold days. Warm days it may just start first crank. (I live in TX so it's pretty warm) Dosent seem to have power. One thing indefinitely noticed is when I was cranking it off the solenoid, I could see...

  19. 99-03 Ford Excursion Forum
    Hi, I have an '01 7.3 Excursion and am having troubles with it starting. I live in Steamboat Springs and it has been extremely cold (below 0) for the past few weeks. For the past month or so my X would start fine in very cold weather, even when it wasn't plugged in. Now, all of a sudden it won't...

    I traded for a 2000 f350 6-speed the other day. The guy indicated that he had a new set of glow plugs but they needed to be installed. So after checking the relay to make sure, I went ahead and changed them out tonight. Now it starts great but it's running really rough. Almost like its only...
