Ok I just rebuilt the fuel bowl, replaced the IPR, replaced all injector o-rings, and glow plugs. I know the icp is leaking a little bit but I don't think that's the problem.

It's a 2000 7.3 4x4 Excursion 280K, my wife was driving home from work and it died on her wouldn't start by the time I got home from work it started it took a little bit but started.


I checked icp, IPR, cmp with my AE and it wasn't really giving me anything definitive.


Kind of acted like fuel issue so I rebuilt the fuel bowl, good pressure after that. It took a little too long in my opinion to start cold and stranded me on the side of the road once it warmed up, so I replaced the IPR cause I was getting high duty cycle.


New IPR same thing, ordered alliant injector o-rings from diesel o-rings.com, same place I got everything for fuel bowl and IPR, new injector o-rings and seemed to be starting good and all was well.


Well I've learned my lesson and let it warm up before going on test drive, went to leave and no power, the duty cycle is at 93% icp is at 420ish at idle.

Truck is do for an oil change but I don't really see that being the real problem, it is my wife's truck and I don't want her and our kids getting stranded in the hot Texas summer because I changed the oil instead of fixing the real issue.

I did notice when revving it up, when I discovered the no power issue, that it was blowing some blue smoke but I would imagine that is from the oil in the cylinders after doing the injector o-rings

And now once warm it's back to a no start, please someone help me out here.

Pull the valve covers while the engine is hot and look for a oil leak from one or more of the injectors. You may have a defective HPOP . Also when it won’t restart hot do you show oil pressure on the gauge in the dash ?

If the IPR is fully closed, then its desperately trying to build HPO. I would do what longjonsilver said above, pull valve covers and run the truck to check if injectors are pissing oil

If you can get it running with the power it has need to try a full throttle run on it and watch icp and ipr and see what they hold bet it has a weak hpop and that could cause low power and height duty cycle. A cut o ring a injector not seated all the way can cause problems as well. Here a link that should help you. https://oregonfuelinjection.com/content/uploads/2016/08/ford-7.3-94-03-diagnostic.pdf

Update Time:

Well after doing what i knew I needed to look into, just really didnt want to pull the VC, I replaced all the injector o-rings and the 2 bad glow plugs so my wife would stop complaing about the CEL, not like we really need glow plugs even on the coldest day ever here in the Houston area. So replaced the injector o-rings to no avail then I deadheaded the pump and got 600 psi on my gauge, so I hot wired the IPR to get full duty cycle and got @ 1,000 psi, an email to terminator engineering and a few days later and it now has a T-500 that broke my 5,000 psi gauge when I deadheaded the new pump to verify the fix before I finished the install.

All is good now on the wife's rig, and I would like to thank all who gave their input, even if I already knew what I needed to do, it just helps to have others verify or reassure that you're on the right track when you start second guessing yourself.
