Unhappy 03' 6.0 diesel surging & runs rough, stalling

Problem started about 2 days ago, driving at low speed the truck would stall. Then it started to surge & run rough intermitent. I replaced the fuel filters today. It didn't help, I noticed the engine light is on now. Do injectors just start going bad ? I have just turned 130,000 on it & bought it used about a year ago. This is happening at temp. driving around warmed up. What is a good code reader to buy ? Any ideas help would be greatly appreciated.

before u buy one check out any parts stores in the area...advance auto parts and auto zone will scan it for free..it worked on mine..just dont listen too much to what they say to do to fix it cause my experiances with them is they dont really know much else besides whats on the scanner.

Thanks , I will check it out today. By looking at the picture we have the same truck ! Color, tint, you got yours raised up looks good ! I have not done any Mods yet . I have to get the exhaust replaced & install (Edge, Bully or something). Train horns ! Sounds good for the LA Freeways ! I am feeling like some F'n steel Ibeams for bumpers ! I used to live in Brandon Fla. as a teen. But the huricanes kept blowing me West. Now I just have earthquakes & fires with high winds threatening to burn my house down ! Thanks for the reply :beer2:

:rain: I went to Autozone & rented the code reader. It wouldn't read...It kept getting a message that said "Link Error". So I tried another unit after triple checking every fuse connection etc. I got the same error message, I really think it is a sensor. It will run fine reach operating temp & then the idle will become erratic. It surged so bad at a light that I almost ran into the car infront of me. I was fast on the brake,the guy in front of me thought I was trying to be a jerk ! I took it to Ford today ! They called they think it is a bad ICP Sensor / EGR o-rings they will take out the EGR & clean it. Then install with new O-rings. Lets see... I hope this helps somebody else.$$$$$

Well I got the truck back & it is running smoooth ! I don't like to give my truck or bikes over to anyone to get fixed. But sometimes it's just not worth spending my own time to try to get it fixed. Check your EGR Valve if you have these problems also try cleaning or replaceing the ICP sensor. I have 130,000 miles so carbon building at the EGR & sensor is pretty straight forward. I had problems years ago (late 70's) with a EGR on my small block camero. I did have the stalling & rough running. But no surgeing that is the ICP sensor / fuel injection trying to keep it running. So check these if you have a high miles on your beast. It's probably good PM to go & clean these if you have 75,000 + on the clock. On the road again !
