GPR on 2002 Diesel

7 posts in this topic

I need to replace the my Glow Plug Relay switch on my 2002 F250. It has the 7.3L.

I called the dealer and they want $240 plus to do the job. I did some research on the internet and I can get one for $50 and install it myself.

Heres the question.

I looked at my engine and it looks like it goes right by the water seperator, my problem is that there is two relays that look exactly alike. Is there two of them?

Any help would be appreciated.

Mike

No the front one is intake air heater, the rear one is the one you need to replace, it usually sits a little lower, then the intake heater relay. Easy to do 10 minute job.

I don't know the electrical specifications regarding the glow plugs but on my '85 6.9L I used a starter solenoid that I happened to have on hand. It has been working just fine for the past 6 months. I figured the contacts in the starter relay were probably rated to handle the glow plugs and so far they have. Don't know if that would work in your situation or not but thought I'd mention it.

I remember I replaced it also on my 2000 F350 when I had it, and I remember price was outrageous. I don't remember where I found it, but was after a suggestion on a Ford forum.

I wish my memory would stick with me a little longer....

So now I know where it is and a company to get them from but I ran into a snag.

I called ABC company and told them what I want and the application. He says that he is not a tech guy. He gives me a number to the manufacturer. I call and they give me another number to a different company.

I really don't think it should be this difficult.

Does anyone know where I can call to get the right one or are they all the same???? I was looking at the Stancor 586-902. I just want to make sure it is the right one.

Thanks,

Mike

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
