    Anybody have problems with their 7.3 fuel pump blowing fuses? :angry:I think there might be crap in the tank plugging the filter. It usually does it when I run the tank really low on fuel.

    If you are refering to the Maxi-fuse in the master power distribution box under the hood it is an easy fix. Your problem is that your fuel heater element in the filter bowl is shorted out. There are two fixes.....

    1-Replace the element or filter bowl (expensive)
    2- Unplug the filter element. Plug is located by the fuel filter bowl drain petcock. Problem solved. Cost- $.00!

    Common 7.3 problem. Simple fix.
