  1. 7.3L IDI Diesels (Not Powerstrokes) 1988-1993
    I’ve got a 1988 f250 7.3 idi, N/A. I was coming home one day on about a quarter of a tank and once I got home the truck started to surge and I shut it off. The next day still surging and started to smoke a lot and had what felt like misfiring so I just started pulling the injectors and replaced...

    Hey y'all! So what I got going is a cp4 55% flow over stock upgrade. It's on a 2017 6.7 powerstroke. Now, the cp4 is reassembled with the new upgraded barrel and plunger, and sits in the truck all hooked up. I'm ready to continue reassembling the rest of the parts onto the engine, such as the...
  3. 1999-2007 General Questions
    So I recently bought a 2001 7.3 Ford F-350. It has a few problems, but so far everything seems manageable. I let it sit for couple weeks in Washington State, where it's been raining a lot. I tried to start it this morning and wouldn't. Then the WATER IN FUEL light came on. I looked up a...
  4. 6.0L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    So my truck has recently started make a loud fan noise when accelerating. I believe that it is the turbo, but I want some other opinions on it. Then it also hardly wants to start but that may be because it’s cold. Or is it part of the problem I’m having with the noise?

  6. Power Strokes 1994-1997 General
    I own a 1997 Ford F350 7.3l Diesel Reg Cab XL. I bought it without license plate lights. I mean the harness was missing. I purchased some and was going to run them off the taillights. Little back story, the truck had a utility body and was removed and had a standard 8ft bed installed. probably...
  7. 7.3L IDI Diesels (Not Powerstrokes) 1988-1993
    I have an 89 f-350 with the 7.3 idi, so far I’ve replaced the glow plugs, fuel pump, and the fuel lines but it still won’t start by it’s self. I know I have power and once it starts it runs great so I’m out of ideas, you guys know anything?
  8. 7.3L IDI Diesels (Not Powerstrokes) 1988-1993
    Hello brilliant minds! I have a 93 f350 7.3 factory turbo, 5 speed, 161,000 miles, great truck and virtually problem free. Today I pulled in to fuel it up, I left it idling as I topped it off. I was nearly finished and the engine sputtered, then stalled all together. I finished filling, jumped...

    OK so I have a 2002 freightliner with a cat 3126 The engine starts right up and will idle all day no problem it doesn’t smoke and won’t miss a beat. However the second I go over like 2100 RPMs it runs like absolute garbage and burns a **** load of oil (lots of blue smoke) anything under 2100...
  11. 6.4L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    I recently bought a Ford F250 6.4 liter diesel power stroke when i turn it over it barks a little then you here a bit of a squeal. However it still wont start, I'm a little worried that it might need a new set of valves/ lifters. If you steadily crank it over it smells like burning wires. Anyone...
  12. 6.0L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    First post on this site sorry if this is a repeat but cant find an answer to my issue Bought a 10 blade turbine wheel from KC turbos and decided to install it myself, cleaned all the vanes and ring as well.

    I have a 04 5.9 and I tried to do an oil change today. After I was finished I started up the truck and it was pouring oil out of the filter. I lost about an gallon of oil in probably a minute, as soon as I started it up. What did I do wrong? I am thinking it might the filter that I bought?
  15. Other Technical Questions
    Hi I’m working on a project truck and for the first time I’m going with an automatic transmission which I know NOTHING about. I have a 76 Ford I’m setting on a 2003 f-450 fwd frame and dropping in a DT466c. It’s tuned up about 300hp and the transmission I think I need is an ALLISON 3060. My...

    My truck in April '03

    This is a picture of my beast, the 1984 F-250 that I inherited in April 2001. Other than a new injector pump, the engine's run flawlessly in the 20K or so miles that I've had her. I'll probably be buried in this truck... ;)
