Locating and changing fuel injectors on 2000 F350 diesel

Where are the fuel injectors located on my 2000 Ford F360 7.3 liter turbo diesel and how can I tell which ones are not working? Are they easy for a begimmer to replace? I was told by a mechanic that 2 of the injectors were not working when he hooked up his tester to the computer under the dash of my truck. If I can't change them, where should I go to get the cheapest price?

SOURCE: Ford-F350 7.3 turbo sluggish when you accelerate

i dont know about the turbo going bad,but i do know that ive seen 7.3 diesel have bad injectors,usually 2 at a time, check for fuel at the injector which can get messy so wear protective gear such as goggles and gloves,while running crack open the fuel line at the injector to see if there is fuel,it should run rough which is good on the working cylinders,if it doesnt change then maybe a bad injector,or not enough fuel pressure at that injector.injection pump issues are another thing,but most likely its an injector.

SOURCE: Dodge Cummins Diesel injector change

They are a pain in the ****. You have to take the valve cover off, remove the fuel lines, remove the inlet valve, remove the rocker arms, then unscrew the injector out. There is no doubt, that you can do it yourself, just leave yourself 3-4 hours probably.

SOURCE: replace fuel pump on 03 Ford F350 diesel

simple : obtain replacement pump from parts provider (no used stuff)

Now help me out here: thats the year they were bolted to the pass side front of engine
and not inside the tank right? (better go look to see for sure)

using a tube wrench unscrew the fuel lines (i use large wire nuts to temp block off fuel leakage)

with a 12 mm wrench undo the two side bolts holding the pump to block

wiggle pump it should come straight off

clean mounting place on block with solvent let dry

silicone back (or use gasket that comes with pump ) of pump

apply pump to block (depending on where crank stopped you may have some tension on arm you will have to overcome to get flange to meet block )

use locktite (blue)or simmiliar thread lock on bolts retighten firmly but not hang up the dog tight

use light grease or vasolene on tube connections don't try to tighten dry

Now the fun part your diesel now has air in the fuel system

there are two ways to remove this ( hard and harder)
your choice here are both methods

loosten the fuel supply line for #8 injector ( I did not say remove) 1 full turn ought to be enough

crank engine 30 seconds only
wait 5 minutes for starter to cool down
crank engine 30 sec again
did it start but runs rough while it's still running tighten #8 injector (caution fuel under high pressure)
engine smooth out good your lucky
engine did not start yet
wait 5 minutes
crank engine 30 sec again
start yet
if so tighten #8 injector up

Now here's something I've done to my diesel to make this much less a hasstle

trace fuel line as it comes up from pump
obtain a small low pressure electric fuel pump and a two short pieces of fuel line
and a few clamps

use tube cutter and cut fuel line just before it bends to go in filter
deburr edges
slide tube and clamps over pipe (both sides)
insert pump observe flow arrrow towards filter

the wires of pump can be stretched over to #1 battery terminals

now any time you change a filter or open your fuel system for any reason
all you need do is connect pump to battery
open sharader valve on top of filter for a few min
and start truck as normal
then disconnect wires and stow away for another day

SOURCE: 1994 Ford F250 Turbo Diesel 7.3 l Overdrive blinking

ford diesels from that year had a funky problem getting the crank triggers to work 100% of the time the software fix they refer to might be the one that alloud a poorer quality signal from the crank trigger to work , this is not a fix but a work around (no good)

first verify that a fault for the crank trigger sensor is held in memory with a scan tool (there not that expensive now)
if so replace it and don't forget to seal it with locktite blue (or it'll unscrew itself)
the trans od needs to see the crank trigger signal to determine "load" to high no Od bad signal makes eec go into can't decide mode and drops in/out of od
ohh a dead giveaway it's the sensor your tach will bounce (allot) at a fixed engine speed (2000 rpm)

also i just looked there's a TSB on throttle posisition sensors(oil vapor intrusion) as well affecting Od on transmissions but that being bad will make engine speed surge too and you did'nt mention that ?

yea EEC test is the way to go but get your own

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

How do you remove the fuel injector on a ford 6.0 liter diesel engine?


V8 6.0L DSl Turbo VNP 1. Remove the valve cover 2 disconnect the fuel injector electrical connector 3 remove the bolts and the high-pressure oil rail 4 Caution, Do not attempt to apply battery voltage to the injector or damage to the fuel injector will occur. using a 19mm (.074 in) socket, push the fuel injector electrical connector out of the rocker arm carrier. 5 Note - there is no need to drain the fuel rail - if the engine coolant is found in the chambers,it may be necessary to install a new injector sleeve. Remove the bolt, fuel injector hold-down clamp and fuel injector.

No electric pulse to injectors on 1994 ford f350 diesel turbo 7.3


Im confused how do you have a direct inject diesel in a truck made 3 years before ford had such a thing 94(suposed to ) has a indirect inject diesel there is no electric wires running to the injectors there's only a pipe with very high pressure fuel running thru it
are you sure your not confusing the glow plug wires ?
they only get power to them for like 30 seconds when first starting it

whats the real problem?

Where is the fuel pressure regulator located on a 2003 f-350 diesel 7.3 liter, and how will you know if this is bad?


most diesels don't have a fuel pressure regulator,  The primary pump pressurizes a fuel loop keeping fuel ready for the injector pump. Throw in a few filters and thats about it.
And you certainly don't want to mess with the injector pump.

FORD DIESEL WILL NOT START


This system should be self priming, however if it did run out of fuel, I highly recommend changing the filters.After doing so have an assistant turn key to run as you listen for fuel lift pump running,(under drivers side floor attached to frame, one of the fuel filters is part of pump,the other filter is on top of engine) Could have hurt pump by running dry. They are notorious for hard start after filter change and/or out of fuel.Hope this helps.
