  4. 6.7 Problems Forum (2011-2016)
    Hi I own a 2011 f-350. After several bad diagnosis and a set of fuel injectors later I’ve basically come to the conclusion that I need either a new engine or basically rebuild the old one. Ford originally told me I just needed a new injector and radiator cap. Well after replacing all 8 injectors...
  5. 6.0 Trannie problems
    Well, it's been a while since I have had to post post a question here but alas, here goes. My Excusrsion (2003 6.0) has thrown a P0730 and P2703 code. It goes into reverse abnormally hard and has a shudder in reverse. When I go to drive it start in 1st gear and shift through the gears into OD...
  6. 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...

    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. Does anyone think that it could be something else? Easier or cheaper fix? I would rebuild it myself...
  8. General 6.0L Discussion
    I'm in the process of rebuilding my 6.0 Powerstroke after non-catastrophic lifter failure. I've chosen to go with new o-ringed heads and a Colt Stage 2 camshaft, but i'm having a hard time deciding what needs to be done with the bottom end, since I have already pulled the engine and torn it...

  13. Powerstroke.org Builds & Projects
    Hey guys, so i thought id share my engine build with everyone. Back before it had started, I wished somebody would have had a detailed thread on their 6.4 build. So I thought i might as well do one so if people ever ran into trouble, they have something to go off of. So to start things off, I...
  14. General Diesel Discussion
    I want to check out getting a rebuilt turbo (or send in for a rebuild) and there are lots of raves about Ron's Turbo in Utah. I've been trying to contact his shop for a week via phone, email, web form... This morning his site content doesn't even show up from his domain. Anyone know what's...

  18. 6.0 Motor problems
    Hi, My turbo needs to be rebuilt :( The compressor bearing is bad as it has oil leak and shaft play. I have begun taking it apart and the turbine and the compressor blades are good and no evidence of blade to housing contact. My questions are as follows: 1: Does it make sense to rebuild...
  19. 94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke Discussion
    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. I have a 4" exhaust with free flowing muffler, diy intake, and a Superchips programmer. I have noticed the inter-cooler pipes are oily both by the inter-cooler and the turbo...
  20. 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...
