Comprehensive 6.0L Power Stroke engine diagnostics - troubleshoot electrical problems, high pressure oil system concerns, fuel injectors, and more. Includes specifications for various sensor outputs, test procedures, and part numbers for common replacement items.
Instructions on how to properly remove, clean, and replace the EGR valve on a 6.0L Power Stroke diesel. The EGR valve is known to be a troublesome component of the 6.0L Power Stroke as without frequent maintenance it can become clogged.
Step-by-step guide to replacing the glow plugs on a 7.3L Power Stroke diesel. On all 1994.5 - 2003 7.3L Power Stroke's, the glow plugs are located beneath the valve covers. Fortunately, they are not particularly difficult to access.
Procedures for flushing the cooling system on a 6.0L Power Stroke diesel and converting from Motorcraft Gold to an extended life engine coolant (ELC) in addition to performing a complete cooling system service.
How to remove the turbocharger on a 1994 - early 1999 7.3L Power Stroke diesel.
How to remove the turbocharger on a 1999.5 - 2003 7.3L Power Stroke diesel.
Procedures outlining the process of disassembling and cleaning the turbocharger on a 6.0L Power Stroke diesel. This turbocharger features a series of "vanes" that must change position to control turbocharger boost. The VGT vanes are prone to sticking, typically resulting in a low performance condition.
How to rebuild the factory Garrett turbocharger on a 6.0L Power Stroke diesel. A cumbersome task, a turbocharger overhaul is necessary anytime the turbocharger develops an oil leak and/or excessive shaft endplay is found.
Procedures for replacing both the engine mounted and chassis mounted (HFCM) fuel filters on a 6.4L Power Stroke.
Step-by-step guide to replacing the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor on a 6.0L Power Stroke. The CKP is located behind the AC compressor and has limited access, thus the most burdensome task of replacing it is simply reaching it.
Information on diagnosing and replacing the injection pressure regulator (IPR) on a 7.3L Power Stroke. The IPR valve controls oil pressure and is integrated into the HPOP. When the oil pressure reaches its desired value, the IPR valve bleeds off excessive pressure into the crankcase.
The up-pipes on the 7.3L Power Stroke are sealed to the up-pipe collector via two donut gaskets. When these gaskets leak or "blow out", turbine pressure bleeds off and a low boost, low performance condition develops. Replacing the gaskets requires removing the turbocharger and up-pipe collector.
