  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 94-99 7.3 Repair Help
    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...
  4. General Diesel Discussion
    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...

  6. 94-98 7.3 Motor Problems
    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...

  8. 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...

    Hey all, Thank you for reading my post. I do appreciate the knowledge y'all possess and hope some of that can be passed on in this situation. I have a 95 7.3. Had overheating issues and ended up changing the fan clutch, thermostat, water pump, finally hoses. The water pump was leaking as was...

    Just got a new Garrett GTP38r turbo from full force. It was supposed to be a direct fit but isn’t. The up pipe flange for the old turbo is square but the new turbo only would connect to a round up pipe flange. Is this the wrong turbo or is there a way to adapt it?

    I can't find this exact issue when searching. I have a 1995 f350 cclb. My truck starts hard when cold like really hard unless I have it plugged in even in 40 degree weather.

    Howdy all, My 97 PSD has the Banks PowerPack system (intercooled), which I understand there is a different turbine housing (Banks quickspool housing?), but the compressor wheel is still stock, as far as I could find in my research.... (Bought truck with the system already on it, 14 yrs...

    So I posted once before about his and have been doing some research and still haven't figured anything out. I had my 4eod in my 97 7.3 rebuilt about a month and a half ago. Essentially they rebuilt it and beefed it up some but didn't solve the problem I brought it there for. I took it back two...

    Hey guys, Was coming back from the hunting land today and went to make a turn and lost power steering in the middle of a turn... almost hit someone. So once I got home I started messing with the truck and figured the following out: 1. Power steering works fine in reverse for the most part 2...
