Update. I changed all 8 glow plugs. Tried to start it this morning, no luck. Had both batteries load tested and the guy at autozone said the were both at 100%. So far I've replaced the GPR, CPS, glow plugs, and changed the oil using 15-40 Rotella with Hotshot stiction eliminater. Has a new ICP from the previous owner. I've also cleaned the battery connections. Truck has some blowby but won't blow the cap off. If it is plugged in for a couple hours it fires right up at 45 degrees. Still racking my brain. Any help is appreciated.
Did you test the new GPR using the “No Start” instructions just to confirm its working?
So its still exactly like before? It starts quickly when the block heater is plugged in but does not start when not plugged in?
And you have inspected the ICP? Unless you replaced it yourself with a Motorcraft ICP then you can’t really be sure. New ICPs can fail. But the fact it runs good as soon as it turns over indicates the ICP has not failed completely.
You mentioned you had it scanned but did not mention the type of scanner. Most parts store code readers do not read Ford specific codes as was mentioned earlier.
You really need to download an App or buy a ScanGuage-2 and read some engine values or its just more throwing money after it and hoping to get lucky.
I tested the GPR and verified that it is working. I tested all 8 glow plugs and I am getting around 1.6-1.5 ohms. I have an app but the bluetooth obd2 scanner that i have isn't compatible with that specific app. I am currently waiting on one from Amazon but as you know I'm in Fairbanks and it takes alittle time for things to ship up here.
Update. So I got an Edge Insight cts2 and have been monitoring it for about 2 days now. What should I be looking for in terms of monitoring? My ipr duty cycle is about 6% at idle. Icp sits at about 480 psi at idle. I've done alittle reading on other threads and those values seem low. Thank you for any input
Seems as though I found my solution. Bad compression... No I'm just kidding it was injectors lol. Swapped out my old ones for remans yesterday. I let it sit over night in at about 40 degrees and she fired right up instantly. Better throttle response and definitely more power on the low end. Thanks for the help guys! Safe to say I'll be drinking to that 🙂
Replaced the fuse I blew, dash lights came back cab lights came back mirror lights came back. The amber marker lights under the headlights, and tail lights (just the running ones the blinkers and brake lights work) don't work. What went bad? What do I replace ?
Anyone try the Kendall 15w40 DXA Ti oil in any powerstrokes? I did some searching but didn't come up with too much. It's made by same people that make Motorcraft (ConocoPhillips). The Kendall is a synthetic blend and I can get 4 gallons for $60. Just seeing if anyone has run it.
I am curious, situation- vehicle on ground, engine off and in park,when in 2h, when I manually (by hand) turn the front drive shaft from the transfer case to front axle (Spicer 50). Should the right(passenger) ujoint turn and left (driver) stay locked up (not turn)?
Does anyone know if clearing the DTC's also resets the monitors back to where I have to perform the drive cycle all over again? It wont pass smog now with the P1000 and P0541. I've performed the Ford drive cycle several times and cannot get rid of the two codes. I befieve the p0541 is a soft...
Anyone know a good mechanic (for a '02 F350, SRW, 7.3 with 180K) in the Baton Rouge area?
I am the original owner of this truck and have done all the oil changes and fuel filter maintenance myself. Had the transmission oil changed a couple of times at dealer. Other than that it has original...
