Re: slow take-off

Is it your first diesel? If so, you'll need to adapt to how a turbo diesel responds. If it's not a first, since it's new, the delaer may need to take a look at it, or you could have one that's just got a little more lag that normal.

Re: slow take-off

This is pretty much normal. Turbo lag - takes about 1-2 seconds before you have really good power to move the 8K lb machine. We as users can't do any adjustments on the engine unless you have the computer hookup to do it.

Re: slow take-off

This truck definitely seems to have more than my '01 7.3. It's also very bad for the first couple of minutes until the engine gets warmed up. Just be aware of it and don't pull out into traffic in a bad spot. You can also combat it by holding the brake and giving it a little gas to spool up the turbo before you're ready to take off.

Re: slow take-off

I was having this problem and it was my EGR valve stuck- does it blow a lot of black smoke when taking off?

Re: slow take-off

Mine is the same way. It is really sluggish when it is cold and when it warms up it takes about 1 second to really get spooled up good. I thought there was something wrong also, but this is my first diesel and it is weird to not have it as responsive as my gasser, but I wouldn't trade back for anything. I will never own another gasser!!

Re: slow take-off

Take it to the dealer.... It will be EGR and or injector related IMO.

My truck has been like this since it was delivered. I did have a recall back around 15k miles and they replaced the EGR and something else. Absolutely no change.

Re: slow take-off

Same with my '05 excursion...way more noticeable than with either of the 2000 model pickups with 7.3 powerstrokes. Add me to the list of satisfied people who have sold their 6.0 liter powered vehicles before they got t-boned.

Re: slow take-off

Is it because it's a 350 or dually? My 05 250 doesn't seem to have any lag. The throttle is so touchy that I usually have to feather it 2 or 3 times to start off on a dirt road to get the tires to stay gripped.

Re: slow take-off

Answer: Stick shift. Use the granny gear on take-off, tach it up to at least 3K before shifting, and you'll never know what turbo lag is.
