FORD POWER STROKE DIESEL PROBLEMS,

by Diesel World Automotive Magazine
It’s true that all engines have their unique sets of issues. Every powerplant that’s ever been produced ends up with problem areas that are exclusive to that specific design. Still, other failures aren’t engine-specific (e.g., emissions components) and exist across the entire spectrum, regardless of brand. Add in a little wear, tear, and age and you start to see not only an ever-expanding list of part failures, but failures that were rare just five years ago now becoming commonplace.
CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR Of the extremely tiny list of 7.3L Power Stroke problems if it had one Achilles heel, it’s this vital little sensor: the camshaft position sensor (PN F7TZ-12K073-B). Failure of the camshaft position sensor will lead to a no start condition without warning, and it’s typically diagnosed when the engine cranks but the tachometer needle doesn’t move. Thanks to updated versions of the sensor being released over the years, failures are much less frequent than they used to be. Still, most 7.3L owners keep a spare in the glovebox or toolbox for good measure.
