  1. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    I have a 1995 7.3 psd with a 5 speed and I have a problem where sometimes it will stall out and not start unless I hold it above idle other than that it will die. Sometimes it lopes and the CEL will come on when I start it for about a minute and when it’s on it has zero power. When going 60 and...
  2. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    Got OBDLINK LX, and its the first tool to even attempt to read but i ended up with a laundry list of codes and was wondering what this could mean. Crank no start condition, harness was fried in a handful of spots, 2 GP wires were fried, GP and Starter solenoid dead, icp presumably dead(oil in...

    Hey family, Recently purchased a 97crew cab f250 and wondering if I can swap the back seat for some simple fold up seats to fit the dog in easier. I see plenty of posts for SD seat swaps but is there something simpler? Just two small bucket seats that flip up? Anyone done that before?

    The clutch is slipping in my 95 F350 7.3 PSD with the ZF5. I use it as a daily drive, but also for towing 10k--16k for long distances. It only has about 130k miles, but I suspect that it may be failing because the previous owner used it to tow a 12k boat, so probably lots of slipping the clutch...
  5. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    So I have a question, I have a 1995 f250 7.3. I’ve had this problem since I’ve had the truck and it’ll do it every once and a while. So basically, if I’m driving the truck in stop and go traffic and I get up to speed and I’m about to shift into over drive and I let off and stop the truck stalls...

    Does anyone know of a replacement or a solution for these grab handles? The bulbs went out and are rusted to crap.
  7. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    Hey, so my truck has been shutting off randomly for a few weeks and seems to get worse when it rains. The wait to start light comes on and it restarts on its own, or it will stumble for a second or 2 and then shut off and I can restart it and it’ll run fine. Which seems weird. I’ve also noticed...
  8. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    So I’m having a terrible fuel leak coming from rear of engine, cannot see where all I can see is when the truck is running fuel starts to drip out and when I put it in high idle it’s basically free flowing. Seems like a major leak but I’m stumped. There was fuel in the valley but I figured that...

    I'm still diagnosing a crank no start after 3 months... I bought the truck 4 months ago, it was running/idling rough and had very hard starts. I've been working on it since. It is a 1996 7.3 F250 4x4 Supercab, 318k miles, #4 injector recently replaced (3.5 months ago right before this extended...

    I am planning on buying a diesel truck in the future and if I do go with a 7.3 I would be torn between the OBS Powerstroke or the SD. I was contemplating a bulletproof 6.0 but it seems like they r more pricy to maintain than a 7.3. I wanna know which is more reliable, easier to work on, and...

    New user here, thanks in advance for any help/guidance... I bought my 96 f250 7.3 a couple months ago. It was hard starting when I got it. I bought an ob2 mx scanner and ran a buzz test using forscanLite. Injector #4 was bad. Also had some bad connections on the valve cover gasket harness. I...

  14. 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...

    I’m in need of a little help, I have searched and searched for answer and all I have come up with is people saying why you should just do something else and not answering the questions. I appreciate all feedback but do understand that I’m not doing anything different then what is being asked of...
