Don't worry he will receive enough punishment while driving a Furd

I'll admit that Ford shot themselves in the foot when they put the 6.0L PowerStroke out there WAYYYYYYY before it was ready. Aside from that, if a 6.0L gets "bulletproofed", it's generally good to go. It's an amazing engine that they get a respectable amount of HP/torque out of. Regardless of whether it's Ford (PowerStroke), Chibby (Duramax), or Dodge (Cummins), most of the problems I see with the trucks are caused by lack of/poor preventive maintenance and/or trying to do more with them than they were EVER meant to do. That has nothing to do with brand. I'd gladly have just about any Ford, Chibby, or Dodge 3/4-ton-or-up truck...... I bet I could make ANY of them last a long time, or blow ANY of them up doing something stupid with them.

 

(BUT, MY preference is a Ford PowerStroke...... preferably of the 7.3L vintage.... There's a 2003 Dodge 3/4-ton Cummins that I know of that I'd have in a HEARTBEAT if I had $10K to offer my friend.)

oh, don't get me wrong, I love Fords. I make lots of money dragging them to the scrap yard.


That's because the parts actually stay on, and you get the full weight. Chevy on the other hand...

I couldn't agree more Paul. I change the oil in all our 7.3s at 10,000 mile intervals. I have always used Shell Rotela 15w40 and our trucks see a minimum of 500 miles a week so it doesn't take long to get to 10,000 miles.

Warning points would have done you no harm as you could and would probably edited them away too.
A reverse brownie point will stay on your record forever. Reverseable only by the issuer, that's me, and unless you recant your Evil Ford ways......
you don't want to be in bad with the brownies.

Chevy guys can take it.

 

 

 

You know Ford make some good looking engines. I see Ford drivers all over the interstate who pulled over just to stare at them.

I changed the oil today, and tomorrow I am going to try and get the fuel changed out. A good friend of mine has an '03 F250 with a 7.3 in it; if I see him tomorrow I am going to ask him if we could try his IPR in my truck so see if it starts.

I am pretty sure that the problem is the IPR, I had thought my Dad replaced it, but he actually rebuilt or cleaned it. I also talked with neighbor Brian today, who works for Ford as a mechanic, he is pretty confident it is an oil pressure problem.

Ryan sounds like your heading in the right direction , it would really help you if the fellow with the scan tool could look at the ICP while cranking  , the manual says it needs min. of 500 psi to start , does it have enine oil pressure when cranking ?  Also said the oil resvior should be within 1" to the top ,  good luck !

If you have the electric fuel pump that's easy enough to check for fuel pressure and if you have fuel pressure my next suspect would be the high pressure oil system as has already been suggested. I second what Alc said, watching what it's actually doing as you're cranking is invaluable and can save you tons of time and money.

Does the rpm reading on the tach move when you crank the engine? If not you may need a crank sensor for it to fire the injectors. From your description it sounds like the oil level in the high pressure oil pump is low, with out seeing it I can't say for sure. That will also cause the injectors not to fire.
