  1. 6.0L Performance Parts Discussion
    2005 Ford f250 6.0L Truck will not fire off. I lose communication to the PCM and the FICM. The truck fires and then dies right away, maybe runs for maybe 2 seconds if we get lucky. I get connection back to both, and then randomly it just goes away. The PCM and FICM were both just replaced. I...

    I bought a SCT GTX and it fried both of my batteries. I called SCT and sent my GTX back. I then bought two brand new batteries and waited for them to return my tuner or a brand new one. Mind you I’ve had the truck for a year and never had a single problem with it. I got the tuner yesterday and...

  5. 911 Urgent Situations
    Hi, Like the title says, 2002 w/7.3 misses unless I turn on key for 20 min before start. If I just attemp to start it normally, it will fire right up but runs crappy like it’s missing on a couple cylinders. It’s lost a bunch of power because of this so I cannot drive it into town safely (Austin...
  6. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Hi I bought this 2001 to tow our recently purchased travel trailer. Since it has 216K miles on it and was hard starting in the cold, I decided to put in new glow plugs and have the injectors rebuilt. When I went to reinstall the injectors I noted Anitfreeze in one of the sleeves, so I got a...
  7. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Can anyone help me identify the pink/black wire that was shorting on the left valve cover of my 2003 7.3L F250? The wire is in the harness from the PCM/IDM that attaches to the 42-pin connector. I have not found complete circuit diagrams or pin-out schematics in the Ford workshop manual, or...
  8. 94-99 7.3 Repair Help
    I am a new and happy owner of a 95 F250 Extra Cab 4x4 5-speed with a bad (non-grounding) PCM glow-plug circuit. The relay works fine but the PCM isn't grounding the relay trigger circuit. I'm on the verge of wiring in a momentary type, manual switch with indicator light (fancy!)... but I thought...
  9. 6.0 Motor problems
    I have a problem with my 2006 6.0. It is absolutely stock except for BP EGR cooler. I blew a charge intercooler tube while I was pulling an enclosed trailer. I changed all the hoses. I really have not towed since then. The hoses have not blown off since but a test drive with no trailer at...

  11. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    Recently the processor in my PCM failed on my 2002 F250 7.3 Powerstroke, causing the truck to crank no start from the injectors not firing. This got me to wondering, what would cause this failure?
  12. General 6.4L Discussion
    Hello everyone, over the past month I've been having the same issue with my truck so I thought I would make an account on here to see if anyone could possibly have any insight. I've looked through other threads on here to see if anyone else has had a similar issue but had no luck. I recently...

I have a 2000 CCSB F250 7.3L with 190k mi. Thursday morning I got off work and went out to my truck. It started like a champ. Drove 7 miles...
  14. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    I know I may get the oh this has been done before, but I have been looking for the past couple weeks trying to fix this and I can't find what it is. I have an early build 1999 7.3 auto with 265,000 miles. This started when I was driving to work about a month ago and the truck shut off like I had...
  15. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    I have a 1999.5 F250 4X4 automatic. It runs great but I wanted to put a TS 6 position chip in it. The previous owner flashed it with a Hypertec programmer. I don't know which tune. I was told I needed to flash the PCM back to stock before I installed the chip. I took it to the Stealership and...
  16. 99-03 Ford Excursion Forum
    I have a 2001 ford excursion 7.3 and while it was running I went to release the parking brake and I accidentally pulled the 6 position chip out of the PCM. The engine shut off immediately, and it would crank over but just not start. I think it may be the PCM but Idk for sure. If anyone could...

    2004 x stock. The truck has had some issues. Under a load the truck seems to buck and blow black smoke and it seems to happen more after its hot and after fueling or after the truck has been turned off. Now, went out this morning and it will not crank. I can start it with jumping the solenoid...
  18. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Hi all, I just replaced my alternator on my 99 7.3 when I discovered that it wasn't charging. The new alternator does not charge either. I suspect that the two small wires in the push on connector on the back are the source of the problem. (there are only 3 wires total, one of which is the big...

    Hello. I have a 1999 f250 7.3 6 speed. I am having issues with my PCM diode located in the fuse box under the hood. Every four months or so the truck will begin surging while pressing on the gas pedal. Once this happens the diode will blow within a few days and require replacement before the...
