  1. 7.3 oil pressure?

    94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke Discussion
    Good morning all! I am in the process of checking my oil pressure on my 95 7.3. Plugging my gauge into one of the ports by the valve covers, I'm getting about 6-650 psi at idle and when I floor it, it goes up to 2,500 psi for a few seconds and then drops to 1,500 psi. Is this normal? Thanks!
  2. A/C problem

    General Diesel Discussion
    So i bought a 2008 ford f350 6.4 and the a/c did not work. I took it to get it charged and they said it would not take a charge that there was something wrong with the system. I took it to ford and they said that the condensor was leaking and they wanted about 900 to put a new one in. I took it...

    this is more for you tuned guys that are familiar with stock vs tuned, and know differences in vital values.. ok this might be a little long but you need the whole story as to reason for this post. I bought my 07' F350 CCLB dually 4x4. just rolled 100K on it. all I have done to it is a 4"...
  4. Oil Pressure ZERO

    99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    I have a 01 7.3 that when under moderate and up acceleration, particularly from a stop, the oil pressure gauge drops to zero. If i let off it goes back to normal. I know the "gauge" is either a yes or no rather than a gauge. I recently had the engine out to do oil seals, including the front...
  5. when the computer issue a “no start” condition...

    6.0 Motor problems
    When a sensor somewhere (oils or fuel pressure), makes the computer issue a “no start” condition, is it accomplished by turning the FICM voltages off?
  6. 99 7.3 diesel oil pressure

    Diesel Diagnostics
    I have a 99 7.3 and the high pressure oil reservoir doesn't fill up. once primed with oil it will start then die. I purchased the truck needing a new front cover and oil cooler. I installed a new front cover, oil cooler, water pump, oil pressure sensor, icp sensor, low pressure oil pump, and ipr...
  7. New 6.0 Owner and having fuel pressure questions/issues

    6.0 Motor problems
    Ok so I've had my 03 6.0 since May of 2014, (love it). While I've owned the truck, I've done the FPR spring upgrade (early December) and replaced both filters with Motorcraft OEM as of yesterday! My glowshift FP gauge reads 55-60 PSI at idle and 45 PSI at heavy acceleration; (I don't even wanna...
  8. Motor shop in Delaware

    General 6.0L Discussion
    New to the Forum, I am looking for a shop some where in Delaware, eastern Maryland or Southern Pennsylvania to bullet proof my 6.0. The truck is blowing coolant out of the Degas bottle, dealer quoted me somewhere between 6-10k for the repair but I want it fixed right. I am not seeing any oil in...
  9. ICP sensor Interchangeable?

    6.0L Problems Forum
    Hey experts, I've got a bit of a problem that I hope someone can answer. I'm in the middle of changing my ICP sensor on my 2003 6.0. I ordered the correct replacement part and now that I've got the truck apart i have found that "For Diesels" sent me the wrong part. I ordered part number...
  10. 2004 6.0 Dummy oil gauge fix?

    General 6.0L Discussion
    So back in the late 80's before all the wonderful internet, I happened to be looking under the hood of my new 89 F250 and spotted a light type sending unit for oil pressure. Tearing into the dash I found a 25 ohm resistor, well taking out that resistor and putting in a good diesel gauge sending...
  11. Smoke Question

    General 6.0L Discussion
    So my buddy asked me a question yesterday about his dad's 6.0 and I didnt know the answer. So he was towing a nice bit of weight and to my understanding his intercooler pipe coming off the compressor side (as he said high pressure pipe with clean air) blew off and actually made a dent in the...
  12. Low fuel psi

    6.0 Motor problems
    Just recently hooked up my mechanical glowshift fuel psi gauge. Before start, I have about 51 psi, starting it drops to 45, and it idles about 46-48. Getting on it on the highway, drops as low as 38. Any suggestions on what to check/replace to get my pressure back up to what I believe is 60-65...
  13. GlowShift gauges

    6.0L Performance Parts Discussion
    I have GlowShift gauges on the way for boost, fuel pressure, and oil pressure. Wondering how difficult it is to hook these gauges up? Any secrets?
  14. Fuel pump/pressure problem?

    6.0L Problems Forum
    Ok since powerstrokenation doesn't want to reply to my thread ill try you guys. I came across a fuel issue last week. I didn't hear my fuel pump turn on for my truck but it started anyway. Ran really rough, misfired and didn't accelerate on WOT. 10 min after driving it, the pump comes on and...
  15. 2005 F350 6.0L - No Oil Pressure at idle

    Engine 911
    I have a 2005 F350 6.0L with 275k miles on it. I have had a ton of work done to this truck and I'm ready to send it to the scrap yard! The most recent work was all eight injectors and the FICM were replaced about two months ago. Recently, I stopped at a stop light and at an idle the oil...
  16. Ideal ICP Pressure

    Early 99 Discussion
    Hi All, I just threw $450 into AE today, but I'm curious of something. When cranking, is it ideal for the HPOP Pressure to reach 3000-3500 psi? I have an HPOP gauge installed and that is what it reaches when it's cranking.
  17. Mysterious oil spray help!

    6.4 Motor Problems
    I have a oil leak on my passenger side, and it sprays the whole right side of my truck. It's not glow plug Harness because I just replaced that. What could make it have enough pressure to spray that far?
  18. FPR mod

    94-98 7.3L Performance Parts
    So I did the fpr mod with a BB and I'm not sure i like it. I can't tell anything other then a little more smoke and the fact that it acts weird. It seems like it starts worse then it did before. My OSI went from 52-71. Should i just take it out and say forget about it and just wait for my e fuel?
