Im getting ready to do an injector swap on my 97 OBS 7.3. Are there any precautions i need to do before i pull them out? ie fuel lines... oil lines???? As well as reinstallation and before start up? :ford:
Just go slow and take your time. You can hear a different sound when you fully seat the injectors. Before you start, lay a straight edge across the top of all of the injectors. See how they are all at the same level. When you finish, if they are not all at the same level, it aint' right. Fix the high ones.
ok i got the install complete. started my truck and let it run for 30min before i test drove it. on my way back it started runnin rough and died. now i cant get it started. is there something i over looked or didnt do? any ideas?
i have and all oil levels are ok. i did find a pocket of air in the oil rail but still no change. wants to start with a little help but thats it. is it possible that im air locked in the injectors? on the oil side? how do you bleed out the air on the fuel side?
What is the oil level in the HPOP reservoir? Did you top it off before trying to crank it over?
Does the wait to start light on the dash come on?
With all the cranking on the starter you may want to keep a charge on the batteries. Don't over heat the starter.
im getting 370psi oil pressure on my scan tool and 30 psi at the ipr on a gauge while cranking. after it died i pulled the front plugs in the oil gallies and found some air. is it possible that im airlocked? is the a procedure for bleeding the system?
Running it will clear the air out. Make sure you have hot batts and no more than 15 seconds on the starter. Wait a couple minutes between cranks to cool the starter. If you had it running, that is not the issue.
Cleaning is the IPR itself. That link has a good how to.
I bought an 02 ccsb 7.3 less than 2yrs ago and the charge light was on when I got it. Previous owner replaced alternator and both batteries. I figured I'd get around to figuring out why the idiot light was on. Well, the alternator finally quit charging this week. I replaced it; no luck...
Howdy y’all, I’m having a issue with my 2001 F350 straight wheel (4X4, 6speed trans) that I can’t identify myself. My truck has a 4” procomp lift with 20” wheels wrapped in 35” tires with 313,XXX miles as a reference for my issue.
The mystery noise only happens when the truck currently driving...
Hello. I’m new to this forum but not new to my 02’ F250 SD 7.3L crewcab p/u.
Last week I had a situation where I had been driving from retailer to hardware and finally the driveway of a local market when I believe I took my foot off the accelerator and the motor just died.
I coasted into a...
Changed out my hpop, hpop lines, icp, irp, ebp, and ebp tube. Got it fired up but it ran really rough with lots of black smoke. Removed icp to let out some air and topped off with oil. Cant get it started.
Charged both batteries, no trouble codes, koeo injector buzz test checked out but...
