Ford F-Series Powerstroke Diesel Problems

  • My church is looking to purchase a 2005 Krystal Koach mini-bus with this engine and I have heard nothing but bad things about it. The engine had the short block and injector pump replaced at 30,000 miles and now has 52,000 total miles on it. What, if any, improvements or fixes to the factory problems have been made by Ford on replacements and did this fix it?
  • I am thinking about buying a ford diesel truck but not to smart on the power stroke what is the best motor to get i was told a 7.3 not a 6.0 does it matter and a used truck with a lot of miles is that a huge deal anything you have to offer will be very useful
  • I have a 96 Superduty with a powerstroke. Has no power when cold, wont go over 2500 RPM when cold. Has a rough idle even when warm. It does have a fuel drip comming from the high pressure oil pump area (engine valley, runnung down the back of the block). It also blows blue/white smoke when cold. Would anyone have any ideas on this?
  • I have a 2000 7.3 L engine. I love it. My son has a 1999 7.3 L he loves his too.
  • I hope you have deep pockets if you buy a 6.0. Ford has built in tons of problems from exploding turbos to lots of electrical troubles. Bad plastic parts for high pressure oil pressure starting. Ford won't stand behind them. Oh forgot about my trans frying too. All with 41,000 miles. Ford said I was 1 month out of warranty and I didnt buy new NOT their problem. Love my new GMC though.
  • my 96 powerstroke will not start. I have not had any problems, went out to start and it acts like it is out of gas but is not. I ran the batteries down trying to start it so I replaced the batteries that would not take a charge. I have also noticed that my 'wait to start' light is out.

    Any help offered will be appreciated.
  • Try checking the BCM fuse for a bad connection if good try the starter relay I have a 2000 f250 with the 7.3L had something like that to for me it was the BCM fuse the fuse box is under the kick panel driver side

    New superduty shut off while driving, it would restart but would not stay running more than a few seconds. Ford found bad throttle actuator.
    Ran it 300 more miles then shut off again, similar to last time except engine light stayed on.
    Ford stumped now. Fuel pressure goes low. Replaced filters, no effect, old filter looks clean.
    Harnesses beep out ok. Replacing fuel system controller tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

    Anybody else have this problem with the 6.7L? They had to resdesign some fuel controls for this size, so could be system problem.

    I am having the same problem. Changed the fuel filter...no luck
  • I have a similar problem with my 99 F-350 did you get your corrected, and if I may ask what was the solution? I am kind of lost at this point.

  • I was driving down the road and my truck stopped like it ran out of fuel. I can not get it to start back up. There is plenty of fuel in the truck. I even replaced the fuel filter but it still will not start. Any suggestions???? Please help!
  • Wish I could help but am in the same boat. Does your wait to start light come on? If it does then listen for your fuel pump, No sound no pump. CPS is a common cause, 26.00 at your local IH dealer P/N 1876735C91.

    Let me know if you got your going

  • Thank you, I was thinking wiring but did not know where to start, Will check this out. Lyle
  • check electrical plugs under valve cover. clean and reseat.
  • My truck did that and I had yo replace the starter that fixed my problem

    Mine did the same thing. I replaced the fuel filter...no help. checked all the fuses....good. Found another fuse box under the hood. Bad fuse! 30 amp...replaced it for 3.49. Life is good again
  • Mine is doing the same thing, changed fuel filter, new batteries, taking to the shop on Monday. We had the same truck years ago with the same sensors going out, cam sensor #1 problem in powerstrokes, hope they fix it the first time, last truck cost over 4 grand to finally get it right.
  • Did you figure out what the problem was? I just had the same thing happen to me last night on my way home from work.....I have no idea where to start!!!!!
  • Nope... the light went off at 11 pm and when I woke up to check it at 0300 it is back on. Am wondering if one of the door sensors is malfunctioning or frozen or something. The only other time it has done it was at -25*F. Its about -10*F tonight. Interesting.
  • Am thinking that as the fuel warmer kicks on, that it is wired to those interior lights. It didn't kill the batteries and even at -10 , it started right up this morning.
  • Check your high pressure oil pump
  • Mines still doing it... Is yours?
  • My truck has 320,000 miles starting acting up , no power in morning, lack of power pulling a hill towing a load, shutting off durning idle, loopy idle and intermitting miss. Changed my high pressure oil pump and it solved my problems, pump cost about $400.00.
  • I have 2001 7.3 that will not start when it gets to 30 degrees. Plug it in and it will start. When it does start it sounds like it runs on 4 cyl. One bank mat not work at this point. ANY IDEAS..
  • HAD IT AT DEALERSHIP, TESTED PRESSURE AND SAY IT IS GOOD. THEY WANT TO DO INJECTOR AT A TIME TO COST A SHITLOAD OF MY POCKET. THERE MUST BE SOMETHING SIMPLE. THANK YOU
