died while driving, mechanic stumped
2004 F350, 140,000miles, EGR upgrade, new oil cooler(Puking coolant out the bottle) new turbo (I think i broke it trying to reinstall it) and exhast Y pipes (It were bent???) and new HPOP 5 months ago.
So the other day the truck stranded me in the middle of nowhere. Was running fine, pulling a 4000 lb load. I heard a bump, though it was something from the dirt road. 30 seconds later while accellerating onto the asphault the truck just died. No sputtering or anything. It just shut off. Had it towed 50 miles to the mechanic.
The computer said I have 40psi at the injecters but 700psi at the HPOP.
Dummy plugs installed and rechecked. Same diagnosis.
OK now the problem, everything is tore down to the HPOP but the mechanic still has not found the suspected leak between the HPOP and the injectors.
Any ideas or suggestions? This truck has cost me almost 6000 in the last 6 months. Its getting frustrating.
