2000 7.3 Diesel quit running after fuel filter change

I changed the fuel filter on the 2000 F250 7.3 diesel - drove the truck about 30 minutes then turned it off - when I restarted the truck - it was missing (even though no plugs - thats what it seemed like) - i was about 10 minutes from home and it barely made it home - if it starts - it runs REAL bad - knocking real bad (heavy diesel noise) and then will stop.

Engine parts perform efficiently even in a hot and abrasive environment—how is this possible? The secret lies in oil, which is consistently circulated throughout the engine. The oil lubricates the engine parts and protects them from corrosion. In the process, the oil keeps the engine cool, preventing overheats. Because of this fluid's performance, you should make sure that all your oil circulation components are in good condition. To ensure consistent oil circulation you have to maintain your oil pump.

Hello, I have a 99 f250 7.3.. It stArts, runs, then sometimes I'll get a mile, sometimes 5 ft and the check engine light comes on and it sounds like it's running on 3 cyls. It also will barely move with pedal to the floor. Shutting off and restarting sometimes gets me through a stop sign and then it happens again..

Fuel filter was changed to attempt to rectify as well as drain potential water.

Any help would be exceptionally appreciated

I have a 1999 ford f250 7.3L diesel. In the mornings on a cold start it sounds like the turbo is 3x louder than usual for about 20 mins and when its running like this it looses alot of power. After the 20 mins it runs perfect. I changed the fuel filter recently and since then it has been leaking fuel from behind the canister that the fuel filter sits in. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance.

I cycled it a few more times and tried to start it again and would not start!!! What should I do!

1999 FORD SUPER DUTY 7.3 STARTING PROBLEMS....ANSWER!!!

I've had the same and similar problems as most of you and have a SOLUTION!

I too have changed glow plugs, blown 30amp fuses (controls relay to glow plugs , fuel heater, injectors) etc., etc.

Try This:

First unplug the wires going to the Fuel Heater in the bottom of the fuel filter bowl on top of engine. Then reinstall a new fuse and retry. If it does not blow again, remove the fuel filter and inspect the Fuel Heating Element in the bottom of the fuel bowl. You should see it broken and evidence of it shorting out against the housing. If this is happening replace the Fuel Heating Element.

They are fairly inexpensive. ROCKAUTO.COM has them for $28.79 for this truck.

Check it out. Maybe this is the answer for some of you! Good Luck!

I have the very some problem as #35, can someone please address this.

I have 2000 F250 with the 7.3 diesel. I can fill the fuel tank and the truck runs fine until I get to 1/4. At this point it acts as if it is starved for fuel. The tank hold about 37 gallons and when I refuel it will take about 29 gallon. I have taken it in and had the pressure chked and it was well. I am assuming as long as there is a certain amount of fuel in the the tank gravity is assisting the flow until 1/4 tank. When the truck quits at 1/4 tanl all I have to do is add about 3 gallons of fuel and its up and tunning. Any ideals will be appreciated.

What can I do ?

Ivan
