#318 of 1186 1996 ford f-250 power stroke turbo diesel (STALLING)
Mar 24, 2008 (1:39 pm)
Bought my used truck year ago and all seemed fine. after 3 months while sitting at a red light truck just quit. ( like turning key off ) so restarted truck and away i went. month later same thing. Now it has got my attention. now truck will stall out when Im slowing down to go into a turn or at 80 - 120 k`s its wants to quit ( hasn`t yet) It is now doing this about 6 to 10 times a day this is really annoying the good news is the truck will always start. Changed fuel filter. (still have stalling problem) I am taking truck to mech. tomorrow to hopefully search out problem. been looking around these forums some think it to be IPC sensor (injection control sensor) or CPS (cam position sensor) Im at my wits end love this truck but it is driving me nuts. Truck has 118451 kilometers. I am new to the diesel truck owners please any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Check my posting # 195 of December 3.. I had an almopst identical problem with my 04 diesel. Have not had one problem since the Dec. 3 repair.--ie Ford changed out both ends of an electrical connector which was giving an erratic fuel pressure signal.

I saw in one of the earlier postings of a few months ago--that you wouldn't be caught dead without using a fuel lubricant additive to compensate for the low sulfur now in diesel fuel.
Which additive do you use?

Thanks for the info gerlad1 have taken truck to mech and we took it for test drive with code reader attached. 2 codes came up relating to the cam sensor. truck is running fine and he cant seem to find any problems (typical never stalls when your with the mech) I kind of hope its my cam sensor but not so keen on the $431.00 for the part. Once again if anyone has a similar problem relating to 1996 7.3 ltr power stroke diesel please let me know. Check my last post #318.

I have a 97 Powerstroke that would stall out when hot and idled down from a hot run. The dealor just replaced the Camshaft position sensor free as part of a recall. I don't know for sure if it is fixed but hope to make a trip shortly to check it out.

Since we are talking about Stalling i have a 97 crew cab f350 powerstroke 7.3 that will stall every now again? Sometimes it will start right back-up othertimes it can take 5-20 min. I have taken it to ford they can't find any problem nore codes. I have replaced the cam censor two times and the glow plug relay. Other than that it runs great. Any help would be great ty
#324 of 1186 Powerstroke TD Intermittent Start problems
Apr 15, 2008 (12:47 pm)
2000 Ford F350 .
Vehicle has 117k miles on it and has run great since I got it with 50k. Over the past month the truck, intermittently, refuses to turnover. Happens when itís hot and cold. All dash board, electrics are strong and starter clicks but vehicle will not turn over. Batteries were replaced 8 months ago, alternator replaced 2 months ago. Wait a couple of minutes or bang the dash board and it starts right up. Not sure if the banging helps but it makes me feel better. I have had it at Ford twice now and they just keep tightening the battery terminals. Same mechanic both times, sounds like a token answer to me. Dealerships stated that electric diagnostics are clear from starter to engine and were not able to replicate the problem when they had it.

Hate to tell you but you are going to have to look more into the Dash board or Steering. There is a Wire more than likely that has cracked or came lose and the sightest movement is letting it start again or you have a relay that is acting up, either way I myself hate messing with the Electrical on any Vehicle and wish you luck.

#327 of 1186 1999 7.3 poor low end/fuel economy
Apr 21, 2008 (7:05 pm)
The past year I have owned a F-250 powerstroke that seems to have poor low end power and fuel economy. My 1st tank of fuel got me about 16.3 mpg but since it has dropped down to about 13.6mpg. This truck has 92K miles, auto trans. w/aftermarket 4 in. exhaust and no cat converter. There is a bad turbo whistle at highway speed and I am wondering if there needs to be more backpressure in the exhaust. I have changed the fuel/air filters, run fuel conditioner and installed a Super Chip to no avail. The fuel mileage never changed. What puzzles me is the fact that the 1st tank of fuel mileage was great. My girlfriend's 97 has a lot more power and gets 17mpg!
