Re: 1995 Ford Eldorado Shuttle bus

It is still hard to find a transport to get the bus home.
If I have found one, it kosts me a load of Euro's.
I had one for 5000.00 and another pulled back from his offer becouse he tought I was a Polak.
But never the less, we keep on searching.
Hahaha.

You can "Google (1995 Ford 7.3 Diesel maintenance) and get several hits. I am pretty sure Ford fleet.com will have some manuals also..... just do some research.

Re: 1995 Ford Eldorado Shuttle bus

It sure can but in Belgium is it forbidden.
My maximum pulling is 6613 pounds and the bus weights 13227 pounds, so It is not possible.
The law in Belgium is very stupid on these things.
I know in America you can pull anything with a pick up truck like mine but if I do this in Europe, I am going to be in jail I guess.

Re: 1995 Ford Eldorado Shuttle bus

When you change the engine oil, make sure you use oil rated for Diesel engines. Something like Delo 400 or Shell Rotela. This is very important. I don't know why but the 7.3 will not run correctly without the proper oil.

The 7.3L uses engine oil under very high pressure to fire the injectors so it needs oil with anti-foaming additives to keep air out of the injectors. Many 7.3L drivability issues can be traced to old oil so don't push the oil change interval on these engines. They also need supplimental cooling additives in the coolant to prevent cavitation around the cylinder walls. This can cause pinholes in the cyl. walls. Some antifreezes have the additive and are rated for diesels but you can use standard antifreeze and add the SCA yourself. Yours was originally filled with the old style green coolant so if you decide to go to a newer coolant be sure to flush all traces of the old green stuff. They don't play well together apparently.

Check out the '94 to '98 7.3L forums at http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/ I got my diesel education there.
