Did this video help you?

Dave098712: Pls help I have an 2000 ford f550 diesel 7.3 power stroke turbo and I have a leak I dint know why so I checked the brake fluid and it was empty that's why the brake went to the floor so I added more brake fluid and the brakes got Stronger but it won't last because it's leaking how do I fix it and how much will it cost me?? Thank you

Rob Staples: Excellent series of videos Ron! Well done and vey informative. Just bought my second 7.3 that doesn't start due to oil draining from the hpop reservoir internally. It runs for a short time when filled through the little hole. Going to watch all your vids again to solve this! Thanks again for sharing your knowledge !

jerod wimbley: Ron I'm having a issue with my truck, new to the 7.3 family , how ever it's running a little rough at 35 -40 mph so I to the oil cap off and it's blowing ! And it seems to be leaking at the top driver side vale cover it's that call a ccv and ud thT common ? My truck is blowing a smoke tint out the tail pipe ! Help me pls brother I'm trying to save a little money ! I've just started a transporting business and I'm already having issues . 

Angelica Orelle: Hi Ron ive been watching your videos lately since I was doing an oil leak on the HPOP on my 2003 7.3 and I have a some questions about why my truck has absolutely no power what's ever after I did the oil leak. I have a TS performance chip and I was taking it off to see if maybe it will fix the problem but now it won't start either, I'm guessing the PCM is fried? I need some help.

Chad DeCiantis: You rock diesel tech Ron I have watched your videos and have been able to save thousands on repairs. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.. keep it up ,my truck is always needing something.

Phil Birkey: I found your video very helpful. I found that it is possible to use a $5 non-digital caliper in place of the special tool. I used mine in an attempt to determine the opening needed to make my own tool (leak was bad and I didn't want to wait for one to be shipped). Anyway, when I got it into position, I just twisted it a little and pulled and the line came right off. Saved the money and I already had the tool in my box. Though this might help someone else.

James Petersen: What was the name of the alternate o ring you mentioned and where do I buy them? Thanks

osbornes5: I like this guy. Plain spoken and down to earth. Easy to understand. Well done.

TheBolzic: Is there an oil return system for the blow off valve from the turbo by any chance? the guys at the shop when fixing the suspension shims decided to floor it around town when they had it, therefore blowing all my oil out that valve leaving me stranded when I got it back. 2001 7.3. already had the hpop O-ring go on me. When it downshifts going up grades I get heart burn since the oil blow off occurs at over 2300+rpm. Any ideas?

Jaremy Golightly: Lol guy thinks you can program a cummins and it will run better and longer than a 7.3. I've seen more cummins fuel pumps and turbo's destroyed with very light tuning, Most of the cummins engines i've seen barely make it past 150k. I know of two 7.3's (a 95 and a 99) with over 300k. You could buy a cummins 5.9, but you could also buy a honda.

Zach Taylor: Nice video, my 7.3 has 270k - I don't have this leak but its cool to see knowledgeable mechanics working. 

donsandlin: I discovered a leak from my weep hole in the cover under the flywheel. All indications were that it was the rear main seal. I bought the seal, prepared to remove the transfer case, auto trans, etc. and found that I needed a special tool to install the new seal. That's when I started looking at Youtube to see if I could install it without spending $350 or more for the special tool. I found your video that led me to find that the hpop seals would give the same symptom. This was my problem. Thank you so much for the video. As with many others, it save me a lot of money and aggravation doing something that wouldn't have corrected the problem. Thank you very much. Don

Bob Whitlock: At the beginning you say its a fuel leak but the video is labeled oil leak ???

John Fayette: I have a '99 7.3. Was driving down the road and all the sudden oil is spewing out and of course it looses power and stops. Could it be one of these oil lines came out our is there any other lines/areas this could happen?

Mark Bolin: Just wanted to say thanks- your video was very helpful and made the job a lot easier tthen it had seemed to be when I found the lines leaking. Yes it could look like a rear main seal if you do not research that leak to its origin

Donald Delage: My truck is in the shop now having injectors replaced and turbo replaced. I also ask the garage to look at rear main seal. I will have to call him and tell him about this video. Great job Ron cant wait to see more of your videos.

Doubleg7133: Thanks Ron... Keep the 7.3L videos coming

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.

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?

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?

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.

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.

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

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...

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.

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: I pressure wash them all day long with no issues UNLESS the seal is missing from the connectors. ESP icp and ebp.

n9878f: You are awesome Ron! My mechanic just said we have a bad rear main seal... I'm checking these orings tomorrow.

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...

woog74: Great video. Thank you.

DieselTechRon: What's it under? The mobile ap does not provide a link.

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

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

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

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

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.

Thomas Marquez: Working on a 96 F250 7.3l and getting a p1212 code. Any ideas? Thanks....

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 :)

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 don't unplug any. Depending on the year and options some are tight but with the right tool its not bad at all.

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

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 .

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?

Thomas Ullrich: I have a front main leaking. Is there a video for that? 2003 f250. 7.3

Machining I.T.: DieselTechRon, I can't thank you enough for this video. It was exactly what was srong with my Truck. I was able to put in the new o-rings myself and saved me several hundred dollars. I appreciate the time and effort it takes to do these videos. Thank you for passing on your knowledge to the rest of us.

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

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

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

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.
