Question about Ford Cars & Trucks

Open Question

My F-250 Super duty diesel Lariat truck seem to run fine early this morning while taking my daughter to school, after dropping her off at school on the return home the truck lost power and began to bl

I know I was in a hurry and I may not have waited for the glow plug light to go out before starting the engine. Also because of being in a hurry I sped to her school pretty much the whole way there.

    HI it is me again :( I wanted to add that my F-250 is a 2004 6.0 engine. I recently had problems with the batteries dying and this was due to the alternator which I changed and that seem to make my truck run much better. That happend about a week and a half ago. I am not sure it that has anything to do with the current problem but I thought I would add it in case it is significant.

SOURCE: Ford Diesel glow plug relay goes out every year since 1993

Wow that sounds expensive for a relay. You didnt say what year it is and you thought it was a 7.3 powerstroke. Sounds like its a 6.0 powerstroke I could see that relay costing that many bones. If its a 7.3 liter you should be able to buy one them glow plug relays yourself and with a basic set of sockets change it yourself. You just need to unhook both ground wires on the batterys before you start. Should take like 30 mins max on a 7.3 liter. But a year and engine size would make it easier to help you.

Replace the glowplug relay.Its faulty.The glow plugs stay on until engine warms up.The engine temp switch then activates the relay to switch off.So it could be the temp switch also faulty.

SOURCE: how many quarts of transmission fluid takes ford

about 15 if you have a flush machine do it. If you do a drain and fill you'l only drain about half of it out. so your not really gaining anything by doing it yourself

SOURCE: fuel gauge reading zero and light on ?

Ford has lots of problems with the sender reliability. Typically, the sender (and expensive fuel pump) replacement resolves the issue. To test, you need to take the connection off of the sending unit, at the tank, turn on ignition, and then ground and un ground it and view results at the gauge. If the gauge responds, the sender needs to be replaced.

There are aftermarket senders that cost less than OEM.

SOURCE: battery light came on on my way home from work

Most of the time,the battery light means that the alternator is not charging,or not charging enough.Have it checked,or check it yourself,using a volt meter,attach it to the battery,either one of them,the reading you are looking for is,13.65,to 14.25,volts.Do this with the engine running,and the head lights on,and the ac on,high blower .If it reads any less,the alternator is not charging correctly,or not at all.Check the plug in on the alternator,and the large wire on the back of the alternator,to make sure it is tight,they will vibrate loose on a diesel.If all this checks out o k,then replace the alternator.Charge the batteries up all the way with a slow 2 amp trickle charger,this may take a couple of days to charge,but the slow charge is worth it,it will prolong the battery life,and have less load on the alternator,I hope this was helpful,and thank you for using fix ya!

Check the fuel delivery system. Everything on a 6.0 is dependent on the high-pressure oil system to actuate the injectors. If there is a fault in the system, the ECM will not allow the motor to start or run. CHANGE OIL RELIGOUSLY! I'd start with verifying the IPR and IPC are operating correctly. Depending on the year, these are located in different locations. In my 03' they are located under the heat shield below the turbo at the rear of the motor. Need a cool motor to inspect cause you've got to lay on it to access from the top.

check out the steering stabilizer(it's the shock on the steering linkage) for wear. If it shows signs of leakage replace it.
