It sounds like a head gasket problem. A Radiator pressure test may reveal that there is a bridge between water and oil. This is not a guarantee because escaping oil is pressurized from 40-65PSI and the water system is in the neighborhood of 16-18PSI so there is significantly more oil pressure than water pressure. In short, it is easier for the oil to get to the water.

Another test would be to remove the Glowplugs. You may only have one bad side and if the antifreeze blows out the holes for the Glowplugs, you may only need to remove 1 head.

Check your dipstick. See if oil is mixed with water in crankcase.. Check oil level to explain action of pressure gauge.

I'd look for a bad or broken ground somewhere, either feeding both tanks, or the gauge itself, but start at the sending units and see if there is a common ground wire coming forward & joining into one.

first check the oil and see if it is full. the injectors are fired by oil pressure so check those things first.

SOURCE: ford f350 overheating

I have a 2005 F350 and mine was doing the same thing. We changed everything including replacing a new factory overflow cap. Finally, we found that the head gasket was leaking causing the engine to overheat but also I was loosing a ton of horsepower. We rebuilt the engine from the head gasket and new heads all the way to the top of the engine. We replaced the head bolts with new head studs and it feels like a new truck. More horsepower and it pulls like the beast that it was meant to be. Hopefully, this helps good luck.

2007 bmw 318 i is running hot


have a pressure test done on the cooling system to check for leaks. have a flow test done on the radiator to check for blocked cores. Have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracks. If you have a viscous fan hub on the fan then replace it if the heating is indicated at stop lights and slow traffic. If automatic check that the transmission oil temperature is not overheating and putting that heat into the radiator from the oil cooler in the radiator tank

Fuel gauge doesn't work. went on vacation and left nissan parked with all but empty fuel tank. When I returned and filled up, the gauge wouldn't register. Stuck???


Hit the top of the dash with your hand. if not you will have to check the wiring before you can tell if it is the fuel gauge or sender in the tank. This is not a commen problem.

{: ) It could be that your idle speed control need some resetting. But before that, you need to check your throttle body for accumulation of carbon deposits. You should have it cleaned first. And then do the reset by a scan tool.

I have a 2003 Ford F350 7.3 diesel engine,Engine run fine,but only the problem diesel mix with coolant,what could be the problem.


you may have two hoses that hooked into your radiator that help cool you oil. If the radiator breaks down inside than you need to replace the radiator. The radiator probably has four tubes or hoses bolted to the tanks. Two four transmission two for cooling oil. If so you need to replace the radiator and flush out the cooling system and clean out the water jug. Do not wait long cause you could clogg your heater core with oil. and also cause the vehicle to over heat and that is not good for diesels.leave comment

94 f350 7.3l turbo diesel looses oil pressure as rpm increase


Before you spend money on a new gauge. Get an oil pressure testing gauge for $20 , remove the oil pressure sending unit and test the oil pressure. If oil pressure at idle and 3000 rpm's is a-ok via spec's ( big money repair items) then its either the gauge a clogged or defective sending unit or the circuitry. (little money repair items)
You can also have this done at a repair shop.

I have a feeling you got a wholed of unleaded fuel or bad fuel
I drive a diesel box truck the station I always took it to the fuelman put unleaded in the diesal tanks and the truck just died it had to have the gas tank completed drained and cleaned out but also ask yourself how many miles are on it and when was last tune up and if you live in a cold climate I recommend a heater block plug

Truck was running but just died while moving


It sounds like it has a high pressure oil problem. does the oil pressure gauge come up while cranking? does it start when cold and not when hot? any check engine light?
