Need advise with 04' 6.0L Powerstroke
I have a 04' 6.0L Powerstroke with 30K. I have done no mods to this truck and have always had the oil and filter changed at regular intervals. I have had zero problems with the truck until last Friday. I took it to a local mechanic to have the oil and filter changed as well as both fuel filters before towing my boat to the lake. After picking it up from the mechanic I drove it 2 miles back to work. When it was time to leave, I tried to start it up and it cranked over several times before "barely" starting...it has never done this before. One the way home (prbably another 2 miles into the drive) it started sputtering and jerking acting like it was not getting fuel. I pulled into a parking lot where it died. My dad came to the rescue, he got under the truck and pulled a wire to the frame mount fuel filter and then turned the key for power (didn't crank it over) and listened to the fuel pump prime I assume. It started right after that but almost dies again when I got it home. I let it sit the weekend.
This morning I took it back to the mechanic. He has had it all day and says he has no clue what is wrong. Again I have had no problems what so ever with this truck since new until now. The mechanic says is scanner will not read my truck and asked if I had chipped it...I have not. I'm not sure what to do at this point except maybe have it towed to a Ford dealer. I have a 75K extended warranty. Could something the mechanic did have screwed this thing up and if so will Ford try to deny my warranty. I'm extremely frustrated. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
