  1. 6.7 Problems Forum (2017-2019)
    Long story short, I went to start my 2019 F350 after one of the coldest nights we've had this year. My truck continued to crank, but would not start. The day prior, I stopped at a station that I normally don't use to fill up. Since the pump wasn't labeled, I assume it was either straight #2 or a...
  2. 6.0L Problems Forum
    2004 F-350 6.0L 4x4 SRW with 225,000 miles I went to start the truck this morning and after about 30 seconds of idle, it slowly died. Attempt #2 it slowly turns (as if it has a low battery) but won't catch. Attempt #3, everything seems normal with the key partially turned but as soon as I turn...
  3. 99-03 Ford Excursion Forum
    Hi, I have a 2002 Ford Excursion 7.3 and it works pretty well but it has a very repeatable behavior that I am trying to diagnose. There are 2 modes of starting that it exhibits: 1) Starts on the 2nd or 3rd crank and 2) takes 1-2 seconds to crank (maybe 10-20 cranks). I am thinking that some...
  4. 6.0L Problems Forum
    2005 Ford F350 6.0, truck is from texas last winter, has 221k on it. I have a problem with what I think are my glow plugs. Outside temp at 20F or below truck will crank over but not start, white smoke from truck, a shot of starting fluid and it will start. Above 20F it will crank for 20...
  5. 94-98 7.3 Motor Problems
    Hi, New to the Forum... My name is Ray. I'm not very good with computers and these forums confuse the heck out of me. Also I'm sorry If I post something that has already been discussed. I'm not very smart when it comes to diesels. I know a little bit but I'm definitely not the guy to ask for...
  6. 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...
  7. General 6.0L Discussion
    Ok so one day I go to start my truck ('05 Auto 350 112k) and everything works normal except it wont crank. I messed around with the shifter and it started right up in nutral. So I am thinking it is a switch on the shifter but not sure where that might be. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks...
  8. General Diesel Discussion
    Hi Guys I know next to nothing about diesels. I'm getting a truck camper (app. 2000 lbs) and trying to decide if an F250/350 diesel is for me. I get the increased payload, gas mileage, simple and stronger mechanics, however, I'm concerned about cold weather starting. I plan on spending a LOT...
  9. Diesel Diagnostics
    Ok, new to the forum so any help would be greatly appreciated. I just finished a bunch of work on an 86 F350 Dually 4x4. Including installation of a rebuilt ATS turbo from a 7.3 I picked up. I robbed the injectors and fuel filter base from that engine. with the injects I put in all new...
  10. 6.0L Problems Forum
    I have a 2005 6.0 that when starting sounds normal for a second then changes to a louder metal on metal grinding sound, after 3-4 seconds of cranking it starts up and runs like new. Recently I replaced the blue spring upgrade and I thought I left something off and had a fuel leak, but there is...

  12. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    So I am completely new to the diesel word with the exception of tractors and military experience. I just got my first deisel - 2000 f250 ec 7.3l 6 speed 156k. I would like to ask a few general questions though I have no major problems at the moment. It is cold here in Oregon about 40-50 every...

  14. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Hello All, I left the title vague as I am really unsure as to what the problem could be. I have read a lot on this forum and have checked a lot of things, but as it is my first diesel I have a learning curve to achieve. First off, she is a 2001 F250 SDSC 7.3L. I bought it used with 150k...
  15. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    I could use a little help figuring this problem out since the service department at my dealer is acting incompetent and impotent. Over the last couple months I've had an intermittant problem where after driving a few miles and turning it off and then trying to restart the starter acts like it...
  16. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    When temps get down in low 30s my 7.3 won't start. Sure fire way to get it to go is to slightly preasureize the fuel tank. Fires up and runs a little rough for a minute or so while blowing white smoke. Seems like there is a restriction in the tank outlet or does someone have another idea. So...
