It is a diesel it has pulling power,what do you need that much power for ?
most times more power leads to breaking things,and with a diesel engine that gets very expensive.
I'm not quite sure,but some times if the programmer has been used on another vehicle it will not be able to recognize the VIN of this vehicle,as the programmer still has the VIN of the last vehicle stored in it.

Diesel. Reduce power lite turned on. Shut off engine and started back up - lite is off. Can it be driven?


Jerry, Drive to a good shop. So many things can cause reduced power light unfortunately. The first step would be to get the truck hooked up to a scanner/computer and have the computer scanned for trouble codes. One thing that you could try is to drain the water from the water separator that is mounted on the frame under drivers front door. If the PCM picks up on water, power is reduced until water is removed/drained. It could be an exhaust sensor that is reading faulty. Unfortunately from here its impossible to tell you exactly what the fault is because there are just so many engine sensor inputs that could cause your problem. Check the attached links, forums,instruction and guides, Good luck

7.3 diesel cranking over more than my v-10 is that normal


Yes, it IS normal for a powerstroke diesel to require more revolutions of the motor to fire than for any gasoline engine. Combustion in gasoline engines is stimulated by spark plugs and many gasoline engines will start with little turning of the motor past the position where the ignition timing creates the spark and combustion occurs. Combustion forces the engine to continue rotating and combustion in that and other cylinders becomes a perpetual event. A Powerstroke Diesel engine requires more revolutions and speed of revolutions to create the heat necessary to cause the diesel/air mixture to combust. ALSO, the diesel is injected into the combustion chamber, at high pressure, by the injectors. The injectors are electronically controlled and the Fuel Control Module (computer) (also known as the Injector Control Module or ICM) tells each injector exactly when to open and inject diesel into the combustion chamber, as well as for how many milliseconds it stays open (how much fuel will be delivered). Summary, a powerstroke diesel will only begin the perpetual combustion process when the motor is turning fast enough and the pistons are compressing the volume of the cylinder into the tight space of the combustion chamber rapidly enough to create enough heat for the fuel to ignite and begin creating power to turn the motor without the aid of the starter. IN ADDITION, a Powerstroke will NOT start at all with weak batteries. Not only does the motor need to revolve rapidly in order to start, the injectors require a MINIMUM voltage of MORE THAN 12 volts in order to activate (open). The exact amount of voltage required can be different, depending on the Fuel Control Module (FCM) or "Injector Control Module" (ICM) type that is installed. (Note; terminology for the FCM / ICM tend to depend on who you are talking to, what resource you are reading, etc. They are the same thing.) If batteries are weak, the starter uses enough amps to drag the voltage down and, even though the starter turns the motor fast enough that any gasoline motor would fire right up, the ICM will never send the signal to the injectors for them to activate so, the cylinders never get any fuel and the motor never fires. I hope that helps. Yes, a 7.3L diesel will normally need to turn with the starter for longer than your gasoline fueled V10.

1999 f 250 powerstroke diesel , when i press down accelarator there is no response, truck starts and idles but no response when i step on accelarator


look behind your accel. pedal if there is a wire harness there check to make sure that it hasnt come out or is not plugged all the way in. if it is plugged in then you may need a new pedal. if it does not have a electronic pedal you may need a new ecm . if you can have someone plug it in to a diagnostic and this will tell you for sure.

96' f-350 powerstroke diesel is only running on 7 cyclinders what the reason??


Bad injector is most likely.
Easy to tell because it will be the only cold one if you only run it for a minute or so.

1995 f350 7.3 powerstroke losing oil I believe oil is going into fuel tank. whats my problem?


You have a bad Injector O-ring. It is letting high pressure oil over power the diesel fuel pressure.

O-ring kits are available for $7 for each injector.
