  2. Forum Help and Info
    So I picked up a 2004 Ford F-250 and it has a severe power loss. It has a new HPOP, new oil cooler, new glow plugs and fuel pump. I replaced the MAP sensor and it seemed to help the issue. After driving it to where the temp gauge is up some, it runs like a champ, but once it gets to operating...

  5. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    Here's the problem. When I drive and take off power (let up on the accelerator), sometimes I get a check engine light and a complete loss of power. The engine runs but will not rev. That lasts anywhere from about a few seconds to 30 seconds. Then power returns and everything is good. I have...
