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!

What year 7.3 engines do you like? I am watching for a pre 1997 F250. I like a full sized truck vs the Ranger I am now driving. F250 diesels are not that expensive in the 10+ year old range. I like the old style better also.
