97 7.3 PowerStroke cold start.... then the unexpected happens, blown... caught on camera
*[= READ THE WHOLE DESCRIPTION BEFORE COMMENTING =]*
Immature comments are removed, so do act like you have some sense if
atleast not a bit of respect.
After letting my 97 F350 7.3 PowerStroke Diesel sit for a week I go out to
start it up after it being 15 degrees the night before. Block heater
wasn't plugged in.
First the starter solenoid stuck and kept on cranking and cranking the
engine without giving me any consideration, it wasn't until I pop the hood
that it decided to listen to reason, and I mean just as I was about to open
it it shut off HA HA HA!
After doing some looking I found some oil dripping from under the engine
and my first thought was I blew a HPOP seal or HP oil line, but nope, after
some looking I found the oil coming from the oil cooler, and I also was
smelling some antifreeze.
I guess the weather change caused the seals to finally give up.
I have done a complete tear down of this engine, check it out at
In April 2013 I just put a new starter solenoid on it, and I will be taking
it back to Advanced Auto Parts to get a new one as it is CLEARLY defective,
it's done this several other times but never for more than 1-3 seconds and
it usually only did it when I would shut the truck off. Crazy.
This same week I was blessed enough to have found a 96 F350 7.3 from the
original owner that is was in much better shape just in need of a e-fuel

Lil Red Cummins Express - 100PSI Test Passes
Not your typical pickup! Not your typical diesel either, this 1000hp
cummins pickup has some serious character, and boy does it get down! The
owner was testing at the Bayou Drags this weekend, and although he never
mad a full pass, it was a treat to see this thing rollin' coal!
