Question about 2003 Ford F350 Super Duty DRW SuperCab
I have a 2006 f350 6.0 powerstroke turbo diesel truck.she was running great then started spitting and sputtering and had no turbo pressure. i ordered a new turbo and wastegate, when it came it did not match up. the ford dealer said the engine was from an 2003 6.0 liter. i got the correct one and put it on along with brand new egr valve. truck ran good for a few miles then started missing again with no turbo pressure.. anyone have this problem?? any recommendations would be great.
There is no wastegate on a 6.0l turbo. its a variable geometry turbocharger and doesn't need it. i have never seen a turbocharger cause a misfire, the turbocharger is most likely not your problem. if you didn't clean the intake out when replacing the egr valve there is a really good chance that the egr is bad again. also, a bad egr cooler can cause repeat egr failure. also, fuel injector control module is a common cause for misfire

1st of all when Ford started out with putting "EGR's" on those diesel engines, they rushed it and are nothing less than a pain in the ***! i recommend having an EGR cleaning service performed by your local Ford dealer, i know they charge up the wazoo, but they're the best people to perform the service period.this is a VERY common problem with those engines and that service is "supposed" to be performed every 30K I believe. i dont recommend attempting to remove and service it youself, this WILL only make it worse.

Testimonial: "Im relieved to here that someone else is thinking the same thing. Im still going to try it myself as i am somewhat skilled at this but Thanks a bunch!"
Camshaft Position Sensor located above front crankshaft pulley. Use 10mm socket on 1/4" drive ratchet. Crawl under front of vehicle, disconnect electrical lead, remove bolt, clean timing chain cover area, install new CPS. About $27 at Ford dealer. On some years this is covered under a recent RECALL by Ford...after years of litigation.

The first thing i would check is the Glow Plug Relay. Depending on your engine there should be (2 solenoids, or just one) sitting on the top front a little to the right of center. (right bank of engine that is) If you have 2 of them one should be smaller and it is the one furthest to the rear of the engine. It controls power to your glow plugs for cold start up. When you turn the key to the on position the 2 larger wires should both have power. When the ignition is off only one wire should have power. Check this if you do both these tests and only one wire has power with key on or off then you need to make sure that the key switch is sending power to the solenoid. Do this by checking the smaller wire with key off. It should not have power and then with key on it should have power. If this is good and test one is bad then the relay is bad. Note This is not true for the larger realy that sits furthest foward on the engine. The bigger one. This test will not work for it but it controls your intake heater. On another note: This is a timed circut and will "kick out" after about 1-2 minutes. In otherwords it does not stay on all the time that key switch is on it will for for about 1-2 minutes then shut off! Next would be your injectors are getting weak or bad and even your HPOP could be getting weak. or glow plugs in engine are out, In otherwords there are alot of possibilities causing your problems If you are getting a misfire code for your injectors then you may have some weak or inop injectors. Any way this will give you a pretty easy test for the most common failure which is the Glow plug relay. About 35-40 bucks at your local auto parts house.

Hello, here is the proceedure. Any questions please ask. Good luck.
The red-striped wires on the 1994-96 DI Turbo engine carry 115 volts DC. A severe electrical shock may be given. Do not pierce the wires.
