Question about 2000 Ford F350 Super Duty Super Cab

1 Answer

Not so much a problem as a question. I recently purchased a 2000 F250 2x4 super duty with the 7.3L powerstroke diesel engine. I didn't need the 4x4 as we only do our heavy towing in non-winter months. I have the automatic transmission which I understand is 4-speed. My question relates to towing our 35-foot GN cargo trailer. Should you always tow with OD off even though we have the powerful 7.3L diesel engine? I ask that because with OD off you're cruising down the interstate hours on end at what seems like a pretty high RPM. Is it OK to put OD back on once you're up to speed and driving over flat interstate? I have another question. Is it recommended to switch between OD off and OD on while driving at cruising speed? My final question. If you recommend always towing with OD off then at what top speed should we be driving? Thank you.

Hi! I understood what you mean and what you have in your mind won't harm the engine and it's performance. It's ok to switch when you're in flats. You can go for only 50 - 55mph (or lower depends on the wind and traffic conditions) when towing for this is the only controllable speed. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

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

Engine light comes on and then it just idols gas peddle does not excelerate on a 2000 F350 7.3 liter diesel


The Check engine light is the first place to start. UNFORTNUATLEY the code readers that the A/P stores have for sale and use won't read Powerstroke specific codes. You need to take it to a shop that uses a code reader that will or the Ford Dealer. Just a guess, but if your truck has the "flly by wire" throttle pedal ( no cable), then I would suspect the throttle pedal validation sensor. There is a known issue for a "dead spot" in the sensor in the go pedal assembly.

Where and how do you put a cam sensor on a Ford f350 powerstroke diesel motor?


Camshaft Position Sensor located above front crankshaft pulley. Use 10mm socket on 1/4" drive ratchet. Crawl under front of vehicle, disconnect electrical lead, remove bolt, clean timing chain cover area, install new CPS. About $27 at Ford dealer. On some years this is covered under a recent RECALL by Ford...after years of litigation.
