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

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?
