Question about 2000 Ford Excursion

2 Answers

I purchased new a 2004 Ford Excursion w/ 6.0 diesel, now has 58,000 on it recently it would loss power like starving for fuel. I put the pedal to the floor and it would idle for a short period, then stall. The first three times before it would stall I would shut it down, then restart it usualy fine. The last two times in one hour period I almost could not get it to run.Ford had up dated the fuel pump to run after the truck has been shut off about a year a go. Receantly changed 2 fuel filters but I might try that again. Any other advise u might have.

It was as simple as changing the fuel filters. I change them regularly but never experienced a symtom like this, must have gotten a few bad loads of fuel. I used a clean clear 2 gallon container and drained the water seporator first (located in the chassis rail under the driver floor, (7mm. allen key) about 2 quarts came out slowly because I did not remove the plug completly until it was empty,(10 minutes on level ground) then removed the water seporator filter, pain in the *** with 4 whheel drive.
Removed old filter and used a whole can of brake parts cleaner in allen key hole as well as filter orfice, lots of rust, debri, and muck. That was not enough I whiped out filter housing (messey) and put a small magnet into the water drain several times until clear.Reinstalled new filter and water drain plug. Turned ignition to on position and listen to fuel pump prime up until it stopped,(about a minute or two) started the engine
and let run for one minute, shut down and changed the filter under the hood. It's important to do it that way because after cleaning all the gunk out of the water seperator filter the left residue will collect into the fuel injection filter. Results were awsome. Like a new truck. Never expected it to be a filter problem because I service it regular.P.S. the clear container contained no water, but rust, dirt, and alot of algie.

Diesel loss of power

check and change the fuel filters including the water filter.. If you are using a bio diesel then don't. Check and bleed any air out of the pump and lines. check that the air valve on top of the tank is clean and allowing the tank to vent and not get a vacuum. Check for a moss like substance in the tank as it will seriously affect the diesel and injectors. Basically It sounds as if the pump is starving for fuel from a blockage or air in the system.

Hi I have put a new turbo on my mazda 6 diesel. There is no oil leak there is just loss of power as if there is no turbo. It's as if max speed I can get upto is 90. Part from that there car runs g

Since the power generated by the turbo depends on the volume of combustion gas generated, look into your fuel delivery system. Your engine might not be receiving the required amount of fuel. Check your fuel pump, filter, injectors, and lines.

Slugish start on my excursion

Glow plugs do not "fire". You may be confusing the function of glow plugs as analagous to spark plugs in a gasoline engine; the purpose of glow plugs is to heat the air-fuel mixture to a temperature that will support the diesel auto-combustion process. The diesel process is not one in which the air-fuel mixture is ignited via spark like a gas engine; rather, the air-fuel mixture undergoes much higher compression and spontaneously explodes, generating the combustion in a self-sustaining manner. High compression produces much higher heat, but before it can begin, heat must be introduced into the system to get it started.

If you're having sluggish engine performance from your diesel engine, you may have fuel system issues such as fuel pump failure or fuel line restrictions (including fuel filter or strainer clogging), etc. At the "worst" end of the spectrum, one of more of your fuel injectors may have a problem - the fuel injectors on the Powerstrokes not only inject the fuel into the combustion chamber, but are also cooled and lubricated by the fuel - if the vehicle has ever been run out of fuel, the injectors may have been damaged and will need to be inspected for replacement.

I have a 2004 excursion diesel drove it all day stoped at a clients turned it off for 20 min came out and wont start the starter is going but its just not firing could it be a fuse I dont smell fuel but I...

Ok well the glow plugs on a diesel have nothing to do with the engine firing. All the glow plugs do is heat up the combusion chamber on cold starts. Diesel engines fire using high compression. An oxygen sensor won't cause the vehicle to not start and your diesel doesn't have one of those anyways. It could be a fuel related issue. (pump, line, pressure etc.) Have you it scanned for engine DTC's? But based on your knowledge of your diesel vehicle i'm going to suggest you take it to a shop.
