  1. 94-98 7.3 Motor Problems
    Can't find any thread addressing the code reader for my 1995 diesel. Any up to date info on what scanner I can buy to use on it would be greatly appreciated. My check engine light is on and the truck seems to be running on one or two cylinders. And of course no auto parts store scanner will...
  2. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    Hi, Just wanted to give an update in case others find this information useful. Last night we were going out of a parking lot and the truck just died. The glow plug light wouldn't turn off and the scanner wouldn't produce codes (just error). I checked the fuses and they appeared ok but, by...

    I know the majority of the "dongle users" are pairing with it thru Bluetooth...but is anyone using a wifi dongle and pairing that way? Reason I ask is I have a small tablet that is not Bluetooth capable but is wifi capable. And I have seen some dongles that are wifi...although it seems most are...

    Hello all, I bought a BT adapter to use with the Torque app for my 01 7.3. I cannot seem to get it to work. I can connect to the adapter with the phone but cannot get any info from the truck. I bought an ELM327 V1.5 Bluetooth OBD II 2 Car Auto Diagnostic Scanner Tool Advanced Adapter by...

    Does any one know if there is an Ipad based scanner that will let me do a buzz test or contribution test? I hava a passenger E350 that I would like to know what is going on. Besides the test above I would like to set up a dash board with some instaments that are not in my cluster.

    I'm looking at a used Snap On MT-2500 scanner for pulling codes and running diagnostics. I was hoping one of you all could specifically tell me if this scanner with the following cartridges will do the job: 1. Primary Cartridge GM-Chrysler-Ford-Jeep Domestic Combination thru 1999 2...

    Latest edition of Diesel Power. Pic of a DRW '11 super duty on the front. Pages 128-129. They have done a write up of The AeroForce Technology Interceptor gauge/diagnostic scanner. Now I know there are guys that swear by the "AE" scanner but for me I don't want to pay that much and I like the...
  9. 94-98 7.3 Motor Problems
    Hello all, the powerstroke world is all brand new to me but i'm learning quickly, just not quick enough. I'm helping a buddy who just picked up a 95 7.3L Powerstroke Turbo that won't start. Previous owner said the engine just flat out died as he was driving down the road and wouldn't start...
  10. Diesel Diagnostics
    Few days ago 6.0 diesel would start and idle but not run fast with any power at all. Now it won't start at all. No blue mist coming out of tailpipe which makes me think injectors are not firing. Plenty of cranking speed via new batteries and new starter. 48 volts on the FICM test pin...
  11. 94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke Discussion
    Hi - I have a 94.5 powerstroke. It has the OBD2 plug under the glove box area. I wasn't able to pull any code data from the obd2 port, so I did a bunch of reading / searching on this forum and read about people swapping in 96+ computers to enable pulling complete code data via OBD2. I bought...
