Question about Ford F-250

Open Question

99 F250 with 7.3 diesel service engine soon light comes and goes but the engine boggs down like there's an injector plugged. I put diesel injector cleaner into fuel and have ran almost a full tank through it. It's not as significant now but still does it. Could it be my fuel pump or will it take a few tanks before it stops?

Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.

SOURCE: 99 ram diesel wont start

Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

I had the same issue with my 96 camaro. It needed a new fuel filter, change it out with the best one at your local autoparts store, and that should be it. Just lack of fuel

I turn van on and go the van boggs down then the service engine light turns on and it smells like raw gas


Does it only bogg down on acceleration or all the time? If its only on acceleration you want to check for any loose vaccuum lines leading to the intake. In addition you want to check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail and make sure that the engine is getting fuel. If so check the injectors. A clogged fuel injector or one that is leaking can cause the bogging issue and the smell of raw gas.

ATT.NET7.3 POWERSTROKE WONT IDLE 99 MODEL


According to my Haynes Diesel Engine Repair manual this is a list of possible causes.
1.Slow idle incorrectly adjusted
2.Fast idle is inoperative
3.Restricted fuel return system
4.Glow plugs turn off too soon
5.Insufficient fuel suuply to injector pump
6.Injector pump malfunction
7.Incorrect, contaminated or poor quality fuel
8.Air in fuel.
The manual is part number 10330 anywhere they sell Haynes manuals ($20). It has a very good section on the 7.3 especially if you don't want to spend money at a diesel shop every time it needs work. Hope this helps.

My 1998 Ford Expedition stalls or boggs down when I accelerate. I've gotten atleast 3 different reasons. Mass air flow, O2 sensor or intake manifold leak. I don't want to spend money on all three.


DO YOU HAVE A SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT ON? IF SO YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE IT SCANNED TO READ ANY CODES. A MAF SENSOR CAN MAKE IT RUN LIKE THAT. YOU CAN TRY TO CLEAN IT WITH CARB. SPRAY.

I have a 99' F250 Super Duty 7.3 and i just changed the oil as soon as i started the truck the 'service engine soon ' light came on. I have put 4 different scanners on and no codes came up. I drove it and...


Try repriming your fuel system. On some diesels, when you replace fuel filters, you have to prime them. I dont see how that affects your oil though. Did you put all 15qts of oil in?

88 f250 diesel ticks hard pumps smoke still starts good and no power loss, took vavle cover off and everything looks ok wat should i check next wat would i look for if i was to pull injectors


The problem is the glow plugs are bad or not coming on. Even though the "wait to start" light comes on, the glow plugs may not come on. I have found when this happens, the light comes on for only 1-2 seconds and goes off. With the engine cold, the light should stay on for about 5 to 7 seconds. The colder the engine, the longer the plugs should stay on. There is one glow plug for each cyl. The plugs are in the "V" of the engine and screwed into head. Only one wire goes to the glow plug and the wire runs from one plug to the next on each bank. You test them by removing them and grounding the body and putting 12v positive to the terminal. The tip should glow red hot like a cigarette lighter. There is a glow plug relay behind the air intake horn which also could be the problem and there is a engine temp sensor in the circuit also.

I have a 95 3.0l and mine does this when the fuel filter or injectors are blocked. I ran a bad batch of bio diesel and had the same thing about 6 times. As soon a you take your foot of the revs the light goes back out.
