SOURCE: HOW TO REPLACE THERMOSTAT

It should be located in a housing on top of the engine.

  • You'll need a bucket.
  • This is also a good time to do a coolant flush or replacement
  1. Follow the hose from the top of your radiator to the engine. This is the thermostat housing.
  2. Remove this hose from the engine and collect the fluid in the bucket.
  3. Remove the (usually 2) bolts holding the housing to the engine.
  4. The small round object inside is the thermostat. It's usually loose but if you have severe corrosion, you may have to pry it out with a screwdriver.
  5. Replace the thermostat.
  6. Re-install the housing and hose.
  7. Top off your coolant with new fluid
  8. Dispose of old fluid properly (This stuff is poisonous!)

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

Starting problem


You can not by-pass, disarm, or eliminate the "Anti-theft module. Its called "HALO" and it is located at the ignition key cylinder. The plastic ring (part or anti-theft module) wraps around the key cylinder. If the key cylinder receives an impact and breaks the ring, it will not allow the vehicle to be started. Also if the module breaks or wears out, it will need to be replaced. Diagnostics will be needed to repair. If you are looking for the exact repair procedure, please write back and let me know. Good luck. P.S. if you are not familiar with Air-bags, you should just take the car to Ford. They only sell the parts and it will cost you less to go there.

Location of engine thermostats on 2003 ch2500hd turbo diesel


Check this location.
Between the alternator and A/C compressor, on the top. The other thermostat with vent holes goes toward the rear of the engine.
I believe the temp ratings are different for each.
Let engine cool before working on it.
Clean up an spilled radiator fluid. It will destroy pets liver in 24 hours if they drink it.
