try cleaning the egr valve passage and egr valve.
"Blow-by" is not good for any engine. It indicates worn internal engine parts (rings)
depends on if your looking for a regular work truck or just wondering who has the most powerful diesel. If your looking for a work truck that is new or used it doesn't matter, the dodge cummins diesel has always been more powerful and longer lasting in terms of the engine and pulling capabilities. The most powerful diesel built for pulling is owned by scheid diesel motorsports, its a cummins diesel that's putting out somewheres around 1600 hp and 2200 ft lbs torque. WRONG!!! Dodge diesels are not good. Dont get me wrong Cummins is by far one of the best diesels ever made but there transmissions cant hang. Chevy has the fastest diesel and overall best diesel in the new diesel market but the 7.3 liter 1994.5 to 2003 ford powerstroke diesels are the best on the road. I have had 12 valve cummins and 24 valve cummins all were good engines but had weak transmissions. My fords have never let me down. EVER! I hate the 6.0 liter engines and the new 6.4 liter is the worst yet but trust me hands down the 7.3 is the longest lasting diesel on the road today. If you don't belive me look it up.
If this is the (S.O.C) single overhead cam, there is no adjustments. The cam is worn, or there is a stuck valve, or broken valve spring. Hope this helps, GOOD LUCK!
Run away. That has the 6.2 liter naturally aspired Detroit Diesel V8, and that thing is a dog. Good for fuel mileage, but power is lacking, and the heads are terrible for forming cracks in them.
It certainly can't be good in any way. Hopefully, you realize that litter boxes do have to be cleaned out.
it does not have a timing belt, it is a chain drive which should be good for the life of the car
I changed the EGR valve, PVC valve, now it has gotten worse. I also cleaned the throttle body.
A good sentence for the word diesel is: Do you want diesel or alkline in your car?
First you get good and drunk then you yell at your kids all day and then you take it in for a pro to fix it
If it is a 12 valve take it to a diesel performance shop, they can do allot of things to help with power and milage; torque plates, governor springs, elevation adjustments, ect. If it is a 24 valve purchase a chip that can get you the type of power your looking for. TST, and Banks build very good safe chips.
1997 Dodge diesels come with the 12 valve cummins engine. It is fully mechanical and does not have a camshaft position sensor. "Dodge cummins diesel forum" is a good resource for dodge cummins owners.
I have a 99 tracker 2 liter - I just replaced the pcv valve $15 Off of the manifold there are 2 hoses going to valve cover - One of them has a plastic L shaped pcv valve attached to it sticking in the cover Pull it out then replace and shove back in. If you buy the pcv valve you can visually ID it on the hose Good luck
Depends on the EGR valve. A good lot of them can be cleaned and reused. New ones can costs hundreds of dollars.The EGR valve works by routing a small amount of the exhaust gases back into the combustion chamber.See the Related link for more information.To clean the EGR valve, you may be required to remove the vacuum hose and clean out the carbon deposits.
The pcv valve is located behind the clip that holds the by-pass radiator hose below the intake manifold. This valve is in one of the poorest places they could have put it, very difficult to get to to change a $4.16 part. Once you find your pcv valve, good luck getting it out!
You can learn what is a good diesel mechanic school at web site http://www.mechanicschools.com/ and http://www.indeed.com/forum/job/diesel-mechanic/schools-US-good-schools-Diesel-Mechanic-training/t144829.
No the 2006 belt is for the 6.0L and a 99 is a 7.3L way different. If you have a diesel. Maybe if its a gas engine and has the 5.4L 2 valve in both models. If one has the 2-valve and other 3 valve per cyl then no they are different engines. Good luck. Hope this helps.
swift diesel give good mileage
There are many good brands of diesel trucks to choose from. Ford Motor Company sells the F-150 in a diesel version, also Dodge has a Ram that comes in diesel.
The PCV valve should be under the intake manifold- pretty tough to get to w/o actually taking off the manifold. The EGR valve should be on the intake manifold itself. The O2 sensor should be threaded into the exhaust manifold(id by wire attached to it). Good Luck;)
Yes it will - diesel is a very good solvent for TiCl4
The result will vary, depending on the type of diesel and its temperature. Diesel fuel oil 20 to 60 at 15ºC has a density of 0.820 to 0.950 kg/L I believe a good average value is Diesel oil 40 at 15ºC with a density of 0.850 kg/L 1 metric ton = 1000 kg 1000 kg / 0.850 kg/L = 1176.47 liters SJ
Really depend on how many miles, how well maintained and how hard were those miles, But in general Yes. only bad diesels are 6.x fords.
If the valve is a multi turn valve, it is because the valve seat is no longer good. Replace the valve. It it is a quarter turn valve, it is because the mechanism that turns the ball is no good and the valve does not turn completely shut. once again, replace the valve.
