    on a 1999 diesel 7.3 f250 super duty powerstroke turbo, where is the water/fuel separtor?

  • woodnut50 Feb 10, 2009

    does this 1999 ford f 250 super duty 7.3 diesel have a fuel pump or lift pump in the tank? it does have a frame mounted fuel pump on it. after it is started it runs for a little while then will not start again.

  • woodnut50 Feb 18, 2009

    changed fuel filter, icp sensor, drained fuel again and changed one fuel injector will now start and run, but after turning it off, it won't start until after sitting awhile.

Based on the information that you wrote down you have a problem with your ipr injector pressure regulator you need to remove the ipr which is located on the high oil pressure pump on top of the engine for inspection inspect the two orings on ipr if one of the orings is damaged that will be your problem and you will have to replace the ipr orings or ipr if you can't get the oring kit

Dear woodnut50,

This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.
If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling!
Try spraying a can of starter fluid in the air intake and see if it runs! If it does, it's most likely bad fuel or clogged injectors so....
Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction
If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
Hope this helps!
Good Luck!

    So it's a diesel!

    If it's cold you may want to check and/or replace the water/fuel separator as it may be clogged with wax from the diesel fuel!

    Dear woodnut50,

    For the location of your water/fuel Seperator I'd go to your auto parts store (I like Advanced Auto Parts Best) and ask them (they usually know) and while there describe your problem and they may be able to confirm or pinpoint a solution!

    To view filters for your 1999 Ford diesel 7.3 f250 super duty powerstroke turbo go to:

    You also may be interested in this site although the filter shown may not be right for your 7.3 so make sure to check 1st:

    If it starts then dies, I would think it's a fuel problem not a mechanical problem especially if you drained the tank and didn't fill it up all the way!

    If your injectors were dirty then....

    I'd try filling it with a booster fuel product from an auto parts store (for cleaning and dissolving anything that might be clogging it) or fill with No 1 Diesel or even a little Kerosene which is, I am told No 1 diesel fuel. When it runs smooth again you can return to a regular grade of diesel

    The lower the grade of diesel the less flammable.

    The higher the grade the more flammable.

    Lower grades in cold weather can cause stalling!

    Dear woodnut50, Fri 2-19-2009 3:51am EST (USA)

    I believe your trying to hard!

    Have you tried the a DIESEL FUEL SYSTEM ADDITIVE from your local auto parts store yet?

    Try this please! Especially if it's cold where you are!

    Diesel fuel is low grade and doesn't like to start it only likes to burn after your engine warms up!

    Draining the fuel will only bring all the **** floating on the top of the fuel into your system and that may be clogging it up again.

    Stop draining the fuel!

    Fill your tank and add a BOOSTER!

    If you don't try this I can't FixYa!

I have a 2001 ford powerstroke. When temperature outside gets hot truck looses power when you step on throttle. Getting codes p1211, p1249, p1282. Just had ipr and ipc sensors replaced by ford. Replaced...

The icp sensor connector is a weak link in this mess. Check and make sure that it is not broken or has loose wires or wires that are broken inside the insulation.

2006 f350 6.0 powerstroke diesel missing. help

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

F-250 diesels blowing white smoak? Why?

More than likely your loosing fuel pressure, you may need a new under hood fuel filter and the low pressure pump located on the frame rail on the driver side of the truck. The ICP sensor (Injector Control Pressure Switch) could also be bad and cause this. But normally if your blowing white smoak and your loosing power at the same time I would say fuel pressure. But if your not loosing power and just have white smoak I say ICP sensor. Also check your engine oil, if its low or extremely dirty, this can cause this also. It uses the oil pressure to run the ICP sensor to control the injectors.

P1211, P1249, P1280 fault codes on a 7.3 L turbo diesel

p1211=ICP Not Controllable-regulates oil to Injectors
p1249=Wastegate Fail Steady State Rate
p1280=ICP Circuit Out Of Range
All but p1249 deal with your High Pressure oil system that controls your injectors

Turbo just stopped working,no pressure on guage,no warning,2005 f-250 superduty,2wd,cummings turbo deisel,85,000 miles

A Cummings? Are you sure it is not a Powerstroke? If it is a powerstroke the check the little hose on the passenger side of the intake to make sure it is connected to the nipple on the manifold. Also check on the connector on the turbo that has two wires going to the vgt solinoid. Make sure it is plugged in.
