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.
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.
osbornes5: I like this guy. Plain spoken and down to earth. Easy to understand. Well
Bob Whitlock: At the beginning you say its a fuel leak but the video is labeled oil leak
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.
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.
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.
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
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?
Zach Taylor: Nice video, my 7.3 has 270k - I don't have this leak but its cool to see
knowledgeable mechanics working.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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.)
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.
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.
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
