    4th Turbo Replacement

    That was the original problems with the 6.0L. They were built and sat on lots untill sold. That is where the term LOT ROTT came from. Two things that will cause problems with the turbo. 1. Not driving (letting it set for a week or more) 2. Getting it hot and lots of black smoke from...

    Help Needed Ok I'm crying uncle on this one, need help.

    Fuel pressure will normally pulse like that due to being a diafram pump. It is not like running an electric where the pressure is constant. Will have to read back through your problem again and give it more thought. Ok so the truck ran fine till before the fuel canister was changed? Was it...

    Help Needed Biodiesel blew 3 injectors

    The rough idle till warm and no power is common, my 04 does that and never had bio in it. It is due to the surface tention of the oil in the very tight tollerance spool valves on the injectors. once the oil warms up the spool valve can move freely. As to the bio, there have been a couple of...

    CPS questions

    For all those who rum the Activator II trailer brake control, With the trailer connected the Activator II emits a signal when the brakes are applied. This signal travels all through the wire harness and will overcome a weak CPS signal. This confuses the PCM and it will shut down. Even at idel...

    Help Needed Ok I'm crying uncle on this one, need help.

    I have seen 7.3L run as every day drivers on 4 PSI of fuel pressure. You want at least 70 psi at the check point at idel. Too much pressue would make the injectors hard to fire and retard injection. Also make sure the hoses to the fuel canister were reconnected the right way and that...

    Turbo hose again

    The problem is not the hoses or clamps or tacky glue. The problem is the IC pipe on that side is not supported and when it shakes during throttle changes it is always pulling on the turbo boot. I was blowing mine off twice a week with just normal freeway driving. I took a small bungee cord...

    Help Needed Need help locating problems with brakes

    You need a new vacume pump. The vacume pump is what supplies 25 inches of vacume to the brake booster. A weak pump will supply enough vacume for one step on the brakes but can not keep up with the second or third step on the peddal. If the vacume gets too low the Brake light on the dash...

    Help Needed help engine died

    Quick note. The injectors need something above 500 psi to fire, If you have a bad ICP you can unplug it and try to start the engine. Seeing no ICP signal, the PCM will use a default setting of 750psi as a pass / fail pressure for the IPR. It will throw a CEL but will start. if it does...

    EGR Delete Kit

    Looking ate the EGR valve, if you cut the shaft under the acuator and seal the valve shut, you could leave it plugged in and the ECM would never know the difference. No exhaust into the intake and all is good there. Then block off the exhaust port on the up pipe and re-route the collant no heat...

    EGR Delete Kit

    There was a write up in Diesel Power Magazine about the EGR cooler delete kit and step by step install. It blocks off the exhaust port at the up pipe, and blocks off the port to the EGR and has a coolant re-route tube. It is a bolt on kit but you have to remove the turbo to do it. The...
