Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #1

Jul 202007

F-350 XL 7.3L Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 152,236 miles


stalling, my F350 stalls and bucks time to time. what i've done to engine: replaced fuel pump, injector pump. injectors have been replaced 2.5 yeas ago, seals are fine, no leakage. injector pump regulator was replaced with a new one, i do get a code come up for the cam positioning sensor. I replaced the sensor 3 times in 6 months. Those sensors are costly. I have a hand held scanner for my truck to get codes. So everything mechanical checks out, my filters are clean, wiring checks out. The only conclusion 1 of my mechanics comes to is cam walk. Now i know for sure this is not common on the 7.3L esp. with only 260000 kms. this is a service truck on the road every day and properly maintained, oil change once a month. It's a nice truck to drive, lots of power. So where do i go now, could it be the ECM, I've had it with this problem!
