Thomas Marquez: Working on a 96 F250 7.3l and getting a p1212 code. Any ideas? Thanks....
BloodstainedSinner: You could alaways just buy a Cummins 5.9, and not worry about anything going wrong with it. And then, you can actually go buy a $500 programmer, and add 200hp, and 300lb-ft torque. Put a programmer on a Ford, and it will destroy it's own engine in a matter of 30 days, guaranteed. Cummins 5.9: 316hp, 610lb-ft torque: Add programmer, and 516hp, 910lb-ft torque. Powerjoke 7.3: 275hp, 525lb-ft torque. Add programmer: blown engine. I'll stick with my lighter, more fuel-efficient, more useful 5.9.
Shawn Collins: thanks for this video my HPOP was leaking at the o-ring under the fuel bowl, with ahead and change o-rings on the fuel lines too. running like a champ...
Cop Block: Awesome video. Thank you for showing me how to fix that. I've gon through two starters because of my fuel leaking onto them.
bwardz50: Hi Ron, I'm with Dan. I have a 2001 7.3 and bought the Scan Gauge 2 per your recommendation, the realized all vids for that tool are for the 6.0. Thanks for all the great instruction and I wish you lots of success when you open tour own shop.
DieselTechRon: Hi Fernando. We need to know what is missing. The most common is the cam sensor, (rpm signal). Then the ipr valve. No or low icp readings, like 200) and next the high pressure pump.(icp reaches 300-500 with the ipr commanded to 65%) If you could test for codes that will help or let us know if you have at least 500 psi of icp or injection pressure once it becomes a no start. Also the fuel tank being restricted. The pick up screens get plugged and once the pieces settle then it runs again.
mike94560: I did this fix about 10 years ago to my 2001. There is a Ford Service bulletin out on this and a repair kit. $50 at the time I did it. It came with O rings made out of a different material and a small tube of thread lock. When these fail oil comes out very fast and in large quantities. Hard to find source of leak since it sprays oil everywhere.
Thomas Ullrich: I have a front main leaking. Is there a video for that? 2003 f250. 7.3
Fernando Zambrano: hi i really liked you video i have a question i have a E450 disel 7.3 ingine and i have a problem with it when i started it after 20 minutes my truck shot off and does not turn on again i have to wait like 6 hrs and i already replaced air filter fuel filter change oil put new batteries what could it be and i will like to fixed it my self because here at mexico mechanics reap you off can you tell me please what to do thank you and God bless you for you time showing what you know
Shawn Collins: Can the valley or bell housing hold that much oil to make it appear to be a rear main leak?...I had to add 5 qt's to engine, I have great oil pressure. I haven't washed yet because I can't take to car wash.
DieselTechRon: You should clean it real good. We clean them with the engine running to flush out the bell housing. The back of the pump can leak or the cap on back of the pump also has the same oring that fails. Or there is another hex head item on the lower front of the drivers side that leaks. I do not have a video on that but I will watch for one and make it. Thank you
Shawn Collins: Thanks for making these video's, Need some more help. Replaced the O-Rings on the high pressure lines. Started the truck (2001 Ford F 250 7.3 4 X 4) nothing popped off. Drove the truck and it is still leaking under the truck. Looks like the remain seal. I didn't replace the other O-ring on the HPOP. How do remove the HPOP? Do you have a video on it? Thanks Shawn
Dan Dag: would you do a video on the 7.3l powerstroke showing how to monitior the scan gauge 2 for no starts and what numbers to look for like you did with the newer trucks thank you
woog74: Great video. Thank you.
1whoridesDirtbikes: I know this is off topic, but I have a 2000 f250 7.3 powerstroke turbo, and I was driving it and the motor shut down on me. I've replaced the camshaft sensor which caused it to not to start. I was told there isn't oil lubricating the pistons which causes the motor to shut down. Is there a certain sensor that could've gone back?
Raymond SR: Had a problem with a high pressure oil pump on a 2002 E350, had the mechanic work on it and said the pump had to be change. I had him do the work however I have had problem with fuel leaking from the pump he repair the problem but this is the 3rd time, Its leaking again.
One more thing after he fix the leek the second time my truck ideal up and down even when its warm.
Any thoughts on this matter.
DieselTechRon: I don't do trans at all and most people would need to know the codes before guessing. The only time we see multiple wheel bearing failures is from offset or deep dish rims causing stress. On your a/c guessing its more rpm related. With high miles or wear the gap becomes to great to keep it engaged. Undo the bolt on the front of the compressor. Try removing the washer/shim and see if that helps. (Note that washer is available in different thickness if needed.)
ManicPandaMedia: The next Problem I have is I have lost second in Automatic.. I have it in Manual so put it in drive 1st enguages second I have to shift in manually then back to drive for third fourth..and overdrive. Help..I think it's the solenoid pack but I figure you'd have tackled it before so I'll ask you first
ManicPandaMedia: Thank You..I have a 1999 also..and the dealer is constantly changing the HPOP Lines, the front hub assemblies (4x4) Every six months..it's way to expensive,, The Problems I am having now are the A/C works in park..put it into gear and it goes to hot..pull over put it in neutral lift the hood and take a metal rod to the front of the clutch on the compressor and it releases the magnet and cools..until I put it in gear again..(WT hahaha) the other is a bit more difficult..
DieselTechRon: What's it under? The mobile ap does not provide a link.
UD1400: Still does the same thing. Search youtube for "7.3 powerstroke smokes, loads up. Help. " video shows what it does. Any help would be great fully appreciated .
UD1400: Hi Ron, can you please checkout my youtube video, I have a 7.3 powerstroke that's making me pull my hair out... I have had it to two different shops, 1 said injectors, other said motors junk. I put 2 injectors in the recomended holes, #1&3 cyl.
lmanzanares: I called the tool company and they said that there is not an angled disconnect tool for the 7.3L engine. Do you happen to know what part number you ordered for your disconnect tool?
Jesse Reich: Thanks for the video! Very helpful, I'm tracing down a puddle of oil in my valley and wonder if this might be my issue...
DieselTechRon: I don't unplug any. Depending on the year and options some are tight but with the right tool its not bad at all.
MRTREN210: Hi Ron can you call me at 2105056410 I have a question to ask I need help with my f350 7.3 please?
Chris B: Hi Ron, Thanks for all the great videos,
I need to replace my r side high pressure line, does all the electrical sensors really need to be disconnected to do this ? thank you
Chris B: 22 howard, my 96 250 7.3 powerstroke just blew the top high pressure line at 363,302, a lot of fuel was discharged , they say the pressure is right at 3,000 psi the line was really cracked at where it bends, I live in AZ so it's kinda hot here average 115-117 when I lived in Yuma
DieselTechRon: I pressure wash them all day long with no issues UNLESS the seal is missing from the connectors. ESP icp and ebp.
Jeffery Power: Hi thanks for the videos.
So no issues with pressure washing the motor. I hear so many bad things about that, I've got a 450k mile powerstroke motor that could use a bath :)
TheSwedeman: Hey Ron, Thanks for the Video!!!
Why can't you just remove the discharge fitting with an open-end wrench without disconnecting the hose? It appears to spin freely.Forget the torque wrench with this method. FYI: Torque to 25lbf-ft.
David Molina: Thanks for this really helpful video. Where can I buy the rings?
benitezab30: When you have a 7.3 motor Spencer over but no fire spray a little bit silicone spray and it will fire or when is really cold in the morning I will fire
Todd Higgins: Hey Ron, Good Stuff. You nailed it on the oil leak. You also helped me out other times on Ford issues. Thanks. Bye the way. I`ve worked for G.M. dealers as a tech for 23 yrs. Left the dealer and work from home now. Seems that Fords are most of what i found myself to be working on. LOL. Ever got a G.M. issue give a holler. Thanks again. Todd
DieselTechRon: Thank you. No timing of the pumps on the 60 or 7.3. A few issues with the first 6.7s but its been very good overall. Just a few radiators for us.
n9878f: You are awesome Ron! My mechanic just said we have a bad rear main seal... I'm checking these orings tomorrow.
Doubleg7133: Thanks Ron... Keep the 7.3L videos coming
Kevin Rogers: do you gotta time to high pressure pump on the 6.0 or 7.3? i would assume no but your the expert not me, and what issues have u seen with the 6.7? ive heard glow plug tips falling or exaust valve's. that and the 6.7 is like the 6.4 alot fo stuff to remove
Oregon Jim: Thanks for the video! Appreciate calling out the tools you use for DIY guys like myself. If you would specify "Snap-On" or "MAC" tools ONLY in the future I will have an easier sell to the wife. :)
22howards: Thank you Ron! Have you ever seen those high pressure lines go bad? With that type of pressure I was just wondering how long they last. Thanks again for the great vids
