Jus bought my first stroke and need sum help. The starter went out a few days after buying it so I unhooked the batteries and replaced the starter. After I finished the starter I hooked the batteries back up and started fine. I pulled out on the road and the trans was acting stupid. As I was coming into town it started acting like it was running out of fuel so I pulled in and put some in. When I started it at the pump it spun for a few seconds as if it has ran out and finally picked up the fuel. Ever since then it's had a skip when it's cold. I've put over 100 miles on it and the trans has gotten retrained but the skip remains. The truck has an older banks six gun tuner with the knob and a speed loader. I called banks and they said it has a learning process as well but it shouldn't cause it to skip even tho I haven't trained it yet. I've also read that running one out of fuel will ruin injectors too. Any suggestions as to what my problem may be. I'm a diesel mechanic on big rigs but these powerstrokes are a different kinda animal lol

Check fuel up at the fuel bowl. Also find a good scanner and run a buzz and contribution test

No sir. There is a test port on the side of the bowl where you can attach a test guage should be around 55-65psi under a load

I mean for the buzz and contribution tests. At idle it sounds like it's running fine but if I rev it to 1500-2000 it hs a definite miss

it doesnt matter if its cold or not. i would try it both ways ways one with the truck in park and with the truck in gear with your foot on the break that way its under a load. but injector failure on a 6.0 is common,

what year 6.0 do you have

It's in an 03 truck but on the passenger valve cover it has a ford motor company sticker that says remanufactured so I would have to guess that it's still an 03

I don't know if it works for diesels, but i know that on the gas fords, sometimes you computer "forgets" it's programming and the pcm needs to be reset.

I'm in south ga. Jus went to my uncles shop and used his snap on solus scanner. Ran a contribution test and buzz test. Buzz test came back clean. Contribution test showed an occasional negative at idle on a couple of injectors but none that stayed negative. But when I cut each injector out, the only one that doesn't change the tone of the engine is #2. At idle or with it revved up. The truck is showing 209k but as I said before, the valve cover says its a reman engine. Is it likely they jus replaced the long block and reused the rest? Should I replace just the #2 injector or all 8? Is it cheaper to take my injectors to a local shop and have them rebuilt or buy injectors already rebuilt?

The truck needs to learn again. 03 and very early 04haf the old style setup. Anytime you disconnect batteries on 03 its gotta learn. Reset yoy KAM by turning headlights on, disconnect batteries. Leave that way 15 min, turn light switch off and hook up batteries. Start truck, let it idle, dont press brake pedal or gas pedal. Let it sit and idle until warm and while it is learning you should hear turbo changing. Try that...

After it reaches operating temp, wat procedures should I go thru so it learns everything correctly this time? I was unaware of the learning process when I hooked the batteries and didnt wait for it to warm up. Could this be wats causing my problems?

If you have a scan tool would be great to watch the vgt% and make sure it is moving...just left it run for awhilr at an idle..we let one run about an hour and it ran great afterwards. If it doesn't learn the turbo won't work right and it will feel like it has no power and fall on its face...not really a procedure just gotta let it do its thing

Well I don't really have any lose of power. It'll still pin u in the seat. When I let it sit and idle now the exhaust changes pitch. Goes from a deep rumble to jet engine whistle lol. I tested the vgt% with the scanner earlier. It tested to 85% fine. I'll try resetting the computer again tomorrow. Is the tranny gonna require reprogramming as well?

After driving home a few days ago I smelt fuel really strong when I got out. Looked under truck and it was dripping off the crossmember under the engine. Popped the hood and fuel was running off the bottom of the filter housing. It's coming out of the fpr oring. I just ordered the upgraded fuel pressure spring kit and 6.4L banjo bolts. Maybe those will fix my problem.
