  1. 6.4 Repair Help
    I recently bought a f350 and it's my first diesel so there was some negligence on my part as far as knowing what to look for before buying. It has 90k on it, but it seems the previous owner neglected to drain the water separator regularly. Recently popped the p0088 code, had it diagnosed and...
  2. Powerstroke.org Builds & Projects
    Hey so I just bought a 1995 7.3 with 290k miles for $250 It does run leaks oil and gas low compression in two cylinders. Shops want 5k for a rebuild but I can’t afford that I’m paying for school.

    When is it time to rebuild a turbo? My 2000 f350 ccd has about 176,000 mi, and doesn't have the power I think it should.

  15. 6.4 Motor Problems
    I will make this short; at 73K, my dually ate the number 3 & 4 pistons. I was doing 55MPH steady speed, hauling 10K lbs. trailer and hay, EOT of 203, 20lbs turbo. Apparently the harness for the glow plugs came out which accounted for the flowing oil but only damage to motor was cracked pistons...
