  1. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    I have a 2002 f250 7.3 psd. Yesterday after driving to the gas station, the truck would no crank no start, and still is. My ignition switch is ok. I think my small red wire that comes off the starter comes up into the engine bay, but mine isn’t attached to anything. I believe that’s my issue. It...

    Hello, I managed to light my starter on fire. I guess everyone says "get your remote start professionally installed" for a reason! >:) I managed to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher I had in the house but, upon removing the starter, I see this orange wire above it that looks to have...

    OK, what appears to be my OEM starter has finally bit the big one, so I'm looking around for a high torque, gear reduction type. Well, as most of you know, the OEM starter has 3 bolts/holes. But the high torque variety that I've seen for the most part only have 2. Also, the nose is slightly...
  4. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Okay everyone, I am in need of your expertise. I apologize upfront for the lengthy explanation below. A couple days ago I tried to start my 02' F-250 7.3 with an automatic transmission and got no crank and no start. It sat for 5 days before this without being started and the temperatures here...
  5. 6.0 Motor problems
    Hello everyone! First post, but probably not the last. ;-) I'll TRY to be brief. 2004 f-250 4x4 6.0 Auto /Studded heads/Livewire TS I just bought the truck...actually, I've signed my part of the papers but my wife signs her part in a handful of hours as of this post. 1. When I brought...
  6. 6.7 Motor Problems (2011-2016)
    Batteries seem to hold a charge, they were at 11.5 volts this AM after sitting overnight. The starter engages, then drops out immediately. No solenoid chatter like you would get with bad batteries. Sometimes it will engage, then disengage, then engage again, like you were just tapping the...
  7. 6.4L Problems Forum
    HI, Tonight my 08 F250 would not crank after I made a quick stop at NAPA. Relay on the fuse block clicks, but the starter will not crank. Disconnected the Brown w/green stripe wire next to the battery and jumped it to the battery and it starts up, so the starter is okay. Do any of you have any...
  8. 6.0 Motor problems
    A friend has a 2007 E350 super duty van with the 6.0 power stroke diesel. One of the starter bolts fell out and he needs it replaced asap as he needs the truck for his job. This is Saturday and the dealer is closed. Does anyone know offhand what the size of the bolts are for that starter? Thanks.
  9. Engine 911
    First let me say thanks for the info over the years. Read a lot but never posted before. 04 F-250, 6.0, Single Cab, 4x4, 120k miles. Driving last night and about a mile in my ABS light comes on and no radio power. Then I notice that I have no gauges. Turn around to head back home and the...
  10. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    So when I go to start my truck every once and a while it will make a nasty grinding sound. Long story short there are 4 different spots where some teeth are worn out of the fly wheel. My question is, should I replace the whole fly wheel or just do the ring gear. And if you guys have any input...
  11. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    Ok, I have spent some time trying to find an answer without posting. But there are several factors to all this. Yesterday afternoon, I heard a noise that sounded like something was rattling in a fan. I was very worried, but thought maybe something got in my air intake. By the time I got home...
  12. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    My early 99 F250 will crank and start once, but if I come back later in the day, it will either click-click-click, or not even crank. My batteries are charged, and connected cleanly (to my knowledge), but nothing will happen when I turn the key to ON, with engine off. sometimes the dash lights...
  13. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    So my truck has been cranking a little slower before starting recently and I need help with some new-found starter confusion. I'm looking into HT starters and it seems that people really used to like the DB high torque model until they had major warranty problems a few years back. Does anybody...

  17. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    My starter is dying. It took me almost 20 minutes before it would start this morning. Money is tight, so I need to be smart about what replacement to buy. I pretty sure I can buy from the dealer for about $250-$300 (I think that would be for a remanufactured standard replacement, not the...

Anyway.....5-10 min later I get out the...
