rough idle

  1. 6.0 Motor problems
    So we've been having some troubles with my dad's '03 6.0 running terrible when it gets warmed up. It starts up great when it's cold (it was ~15* last night and she started right up without even being plugged in). Drives fine, plenty of power, only a slight shake/miss at idle. Once it's good and...

  4. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Hey guys, I have a very strange issue going on with my 6.0 that I need some help with. Let me start from the beginning. A few months back I started having a misfire issue with no codes so I decided to go ahead and re-seal injectors. I was in a time crunch since this is my daily driver so I...

    I'm kind of new to power stroke. Been an experience so far. Lol. I have a od problem I can not figure out. When I first start my truck, it runs rough. It like it's running out of time.

  7. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Hey there! So I have a 2003 F250 that hasn't been running smoothly lately. The main issue is when I'm idling, usually in drive but occasionally while parked too, the truck seems to miss/stumble a little bit. It'll sorta bog down into the lower RPMs and act like it wants to die. So the RPMs seem...

  9. 6.0 Motor problems
    I have found lots of posts chasing around various issues with Loss of Power & Rough Idle. I have read all I can find hoping for an answer but as of yet I have found none, with the possible exception of either 2 bad injectors or a shorting Fuel Injector Harness. My Story: 2003 Excursion with a...
  10. 6.4L Problems Forum
    Hello all, I was in the market for a truck and had the choice of many clean, mid mileage perfectly running ones but for whatever reason took the risk on a repo 2008 F250 6.4. The truck is "clean" and has a clear title but has been sitting a while and has high mileage. I got a key programmed...
  11. 6.0L Problems Forum
    I have an 05 Excursion with (per mechanic) 04 6.0. Had no.7 injector code come up. I was also dealing with stiction, so I decided to replace all injectors and upgrade to the 155's. Now on decel from around 50mph to 35mph when the load drops to 0.0, then builds back up, there appears to be a...
  12. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    Hello all, I have been having an issue with my truck that has been slowly progressing for years and Im hoping someone can help me identify it. At idle my truck will shudder and shake a bit. Sometimes aggressively, sometimes not. I would think it just has worn/dirty injectors or something but...
  13. 6.0L Problems Forum
    So I bough this truck, 2004 F250 6.0 and it had what I was was told was a bad turbo. White smoke out the tail pipe with a slight rough idle, and did stall a couple times. Against my better judgment I spent the money and replaced the turbo even tho to me it looked more like a bad injector. The...

  16. 6.0 Motor problems
    I am now to this forum. I just noticed that my temp gauge is not moving past the first notch. Looked at coolant tank and it is low. When the truck starts to warm up it runs/idles rough and loses power. Can a bad/stuck thermostat cause this?

    My late 99 F250 has been acting strange lately. It has been idling around 900 rpm even though outside temps have been around 80 to 90 out. When i go out in the morning to start it, it runs fine no strange issues. Once driving for a bit when i come up to a stop my rpms will drop to 900 or so, but...
  19. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    my late 99 7.3 has some strange idle at random times. Fires right up runs fine cold/hot. But sometimes after driving for a little bit if you sit for a little while weather you are in gear or in park, the idle with bounce. Its not dramatic but you can see it on the tach, it will jump up and down...
