2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Delamination of the diesel fuel tank can occur resulting in a loss of power due to debris clogging the fuel filters. In some cases the fuel injection pump and/or fuel injectors have also been damaged. Ford has issued a service bulletin (#19728) addressing this concern. This issue can affect all diesel F-350, F-450, F-550, F-650, and F-750 Super Duty models.

Engine -- Verified

The high pressure diesel fuel injection pump may fail, resulting in a "no start" condition.

Engine -- Verified

A severe lack of power may develop because the hose from the turbocharger to the intake manifold can come loose, resulting in loss of boost pressure to the engine.

Engine -- Verified

An illuminated Check Engine Light could indicate that one or more of the ignition coils has failed due to excessive spark plug gap. To fix this problem, the ignition coils that have failed, the spark plugs, and all coil boots should be replaced.

Engine -- Verified

There is a technical service bulletin for the V8 engines regarding a possible problem with the spark plug being ejected from the cylinder head, damaging the threads in the spark plug hole. If the vehicle is under warranty, cylinder head replacement is recommended. If the vehicle is out of warranty, Ford authorized the use of a specific thread insert to repair the head.

I love My 7.3L turbo diesel, The only downside is that the transmission wears out quick. and the carrier bearing is a POS. I bought a fully built trans and a one piece rear drive shaft, and PERFECTO! interior holds up extremely well, brakes are great and great looking truck all around.
