  1. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    So I have a 2001 ford f 350 with a 7.3L Diesel engine. I recently bought it after it had sat all winter(I live in Alaska). The guy that had it before me had quite a few mods installed in it so if you need the list just ask. My main problem is that it would just stall and die. I found this out...
  2. 6.4L Performance Parts Discussion
    I've researched this for quite a while, but can not find any clear instructions whether this has been done or not on 5R110 with the 6.4. The 2008-10 trucks have a separate TCM (instead of combined ECM/TCM) I've learned which wire to use on a 5R110 with the 6.0, but I'm suspicions it's different...

    Driving my 07 F350 (118K) yesterday, I headed down the road and came to a stop at an intersection. The ECT was just over 120 and the TFT was still under 100. As I sat waiting for traffic, the RPMs started dropping and the truck tried to lurch forward. I quickly shifted the transmission into...

    Hello, I recently got a 2002 f250 with the 7.3l. :grin: while driving about 20 to 40mph, I push the pedal and when I let go of the pedal I feel and hear a "clunk". This cluck is very responsive to the gas pedal. It only happens when I let go of the pedal or push it at low speeds. Another issues...

  11. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    Hey everyone, I'm going to look at a truck this weekend and wanted to go in with as much knowledge as possible. The owner said the torque converter just started to slip and he just had surgery and doesn't want to deal with the truck since he can't drive it anyways. I've been searching around...
  12. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    OK, I'm looking to use the TC Mod to enable an electric fan on the AC condenser. I'm looking for a way to energize an electric pusher fan relay when the AC compressor clutch is engaged AND the torque converter is NOT locked up. That way when the truck is at speed, the fan will turn off. The...

  15. 99-03 7.3 Transmission Problems
    Hey guys I'm confused about what might be causing this. I don't know if its the torque converter locking/unlocking, the overdrive going in and out, or if it's related to the cruise control. The symptoms seem to occur while I'm using the cruise control. There is one section of road on my way...
  16. 6.0L Performance Parts Discussion
    So, I spoke with Gary, G2shuck, a few nights ago, very smart guy. He informed me that Patc has a deal where you buy one and get 50% off the second, or two for 25% off each. I need one...if anyone else is considering one let me know and maybe we can both save some money. I just called and...
  17. 6.0L Performance Parts Discussion
    So, it appears dispute the reputation the stock 5R110 converter has for being pretty reliable even under extreme tuning and all, I've smoked mine...probably from not changing the fluid, don't take advice from green service techs. So, I hear a lot about bts-brians truck shop. They apparently...
