There are several common problems with the 2014 6.7 Powerstroke model. One of the most common problems involves the CP4 Pump. This article discusses some of the most common problems with this model, and how the repair parts cost differ from the 7.3L Power Stroke. If you have recently bought a new truck, you may be wondering how to fix the CP4 Pump. Here are some of the most common problems and solutions for 2014 6.7 Powerstroke models.
Common problems with the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine
A faulty EGT sensor in the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel is a common cause of check engine light and fault code issues. The following fault codes are commonly seen in the 6.7L Power Stroke: P0544, P2031, P2034, P242A, P242D, and/or p2471. If the EGT sensor fails, the truck will go into limp mode. However, the exact cause is not known.
The most common 6.7L problems are related to the cooling system, EGR cooler failures, and the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves. However, there are also problems with the turbos in early models. Check for all of these issues by removing the oil filler cap. If the problem persists, it’s time to visit the dealership or call an auto mechanic.
The EGR cooler is prone to carbon buildup. Newer versions of the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine have an easier time replacing the primary radiator. Metal contamination in the fuel system can also cause the injection pump to fail. It causes metal-on-metal contact and can cause the engine to stall or stutter. Ford has fixed this issue with a newly designed pump.
While the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engines have modern emissions equipment, the 6.0L is among the most problematic in the brand’s line. As a result, Ford’s 2014 Power Stroke is susceptible to problems with the EGR cooler and the EGT sensor. Failure of these two parts can lead to overheating and fault codes, and may even result in a vehicle recall.
A clogged EGR cooler can also lead to a check engine light and DTC code P0401. This problem can lead to an overheating of the vehicle. Although the 6.7L Power Stroke is more fuel efficient than previous versions, it still needs to be checked by a mechanic. In some cases, owners may opt to remove the EGR system altogether. But a simple, quick and cheap solution is to replace the EGR cooler.
In addition to common 6.7L Power Stroke problems, owners should also watch out for the CP4.2 Bosch injection pump. This pump is a common source of engine trouble for Ford Superduty trucks. This pump is the same as used in other diesel trucks. Its reliability is excellent, but it can fail at any time. Therefore, if you are interested in purchasing a 6.7L Power Stroke for your truck, you must do a thorough inspection before you make the purchase.
In 2014, a common 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine problem was turbo failure. While turbo diesel engines are generally long-lasting, they are prone to turbo failure and require replacement. In some instances, the turbo fails due to excessive wear and tear, but the longer the turbo is kept in service, the less likely it will be replaced. But, in many cases, turbo failure is the cause.
Common problems caused by turbo failure
A common problem with a 6.7 Powerstroke is turbo failure. These engines use a complicated single-shaft turbo with two compressor housings and one exhaust housing. The turbo works by redirecting airflow from the first wheel to the second to increase the volume of air that can be created by a single turbo charger, resulting in ample power and torque. Turbo failures were most common in 2011-2012 models, when bearings would fail.
The first sign that your turbo is failing is unusual noises. These can be due to the turbo being blown. You will likely notice a stalling problem if your truck suddenly slows down when driving. If you notice blue or black smoke coming from the exhaust, this is another indication that your turbo is failing. If this sounds like your vehicle, then it could be a sign that you need to replace the turbo.
While this problem is most common in older 6.7 Powerstroke diesels, it can occur in the latest versions as well. If your turbo is a few years old, it may be time to replace it. In the meantime, there are several alternatives that you can consider, including upgrading the turbo to a higher capacity. These diesel engines are prone to turbo failure, so you’ll want to make sure that your 6.7 is on the list of vehicles for which turbos are defective before you start driving.
A failed EGT sensor is another common problem. Failure of this sensor may cause a check engine light or a fault code. The most common fault codes associated with this issue are P0544, P2031, P2041, and P2471. You may also experience a limp mode if your EGT sensor is faulty. Fortunately, these problems are easy to repair and will not damage your truck.
Another common cause of turbo failure in 2014 6.7 Powerstroke trucks is improper oil or fuel. If you fail to change your oil on time, you risk contaminating the turbo. The same goes for the oil filter. By using the correct type of oil, your turbo will stay in good working order. Changing the oil filter regularly will ensure your turbo’s optimal performance and reliability. This is important because turbo temperatures can reach over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, and conventional engine oil leaves light molecules behind in extreme heat. These deposits restrict the oil flow and starve the turbo of oil.
Blue/gray smoke on cold startup is probably a leaking valve seal. While this is annoying, it is not as destructive as a failing turbo. Blue/gray smoke is another common problem with a failing turbo. Leaky turbo oil is an indicator that your turbo is failing, which will mean less power and boost. You can then go for a repair if the blue/gray smoke persists.
Cost of repair parts compared to 7.3L Power Stroke
The 6.7L Power Stroke is a diesel engine produced by the Ford Motor Company. It uses a common rail injection system and a single sequential turbocharger to produce 400 horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque. While this engine does not have a high peak torque, it still produces respectable fuel economy. Although it is not a high-performance engine, it does require urea injection.
The 6.0L Power Stroke’s fuel economy problems are industry-wide, but its reliability is good. Its TorqShift transmission is very reliable and long-lasting. This truck is built to withstand years of hard work and abuse. Compared to other trucks, it can be more affordable to repair its engine. The cost of repair parts for a 2014 6.7 Power Stroke is approximately a third less than that for a 7.3L model.
The 7.3L Power-Storm engine is more powerful than the 6.7L. It can produce nearly 400 horsepower. Its design uses powered metal connecting rods, which is an issue for engines with higher horsepower. The fuel efficiency of a 6.7L Power-Storm engine will fall between 6.0L Power-Stroke and 7.3L Power-Stroke, depending on your driving habits.
The 6.7L is a more reliable truck than the 7.3L Power-Storm engines, but the 7.3L was still widely-used by consumers. If you need to tow up to 15,000 pounds, the 6.7L Power-Storm engine is better. If you have limited finances, you should opt for the 7.3L Power-Storm.
Among the main differences between the 6.7L and the 7.3L Power-Storm engine is the type of crankcase. 6.7L uses compacted graphite iron crankcase that is assembled at Ford’s Chihuahua, Mexico plant. The 6.7L has six fasteners per bearing cap and four bolt mains, while the 7.3L features two bolt mains.
The 6.7L Power-Storm engine uses a HEUI system that prevents the engine from running without oil. The HPOP system is difficult on the engine oil, and the EPA will visit you if 14 quarts leak out at once. This is a common issue on both engines, but the 6.7 is significantly more reliable.
