  1. 7.3L Power Stroke Technical Info
    Hi. I have a 1997 Ford F-350 7.3l and I want to know if I can take the engine out and put a early 2000 engine in it and keep it the same and just change the camshaft so the fuel lift pump can ride on it still.

    I bought my 97 powerstroke about 2 months ago and something I have started to notice is when I am accelerating through the gears, when it shifts into overdrive, it tacks up a little (slips?) in the middle of the gear change. This is the only gear it does it with. I checked the transmission fluid...

    So my 7.3 diesel in my Ford Excursion makes this metal screeching noise - what sounds like metal on a spinning metal wheel. It doesn't sound like grinding, just screeching. The weird thing is, this ONLY happens once the engine oil is up to temperature. At about 210-215 degrees, this noise...

    Hey power stroke people. I’m driving a 03 E350 converted school bus with a 7.3. Had my radiator cap blow off, water pump fail (leaking from weep hole), oil in the coolant, and coolant leaking fast from the back of the engine. Replaced the water pump in an auto one parking lot and camping out...

    HI everybody, Thanks for reading my post! I'll get straight to the point. On startup, the truck will idle smooth for about 1 minute, then it hiccups and blows a big cloud of smoke and the passenger side bank shuts off. I have replaced both UVCH, and all injector O rings. All injectors and glow...

    I have posted this same thing just about everywhere. As well as had my van in a couple of high end diesel shops that just don’t know where to go either. My 1998 E350 7.3 is a beautiful pristine condition Van. It got roughly 18.5-19 mpg driving 70-75 mph on the highway. All day, everyday. For me...
