engine stalls, but always restarts again
I need some Help here. I have a 2005 F350 6.0L with 100,000 miles on it. I have had the following replaced in the last 25,000miles:
- Complete Wire harness
- EGR cooler
- Heads (had ARP studs installed)
Truck ran great for the 19,000 miles, now it's acting up.
The engine will just out of the blue DIE, Intially I would immediately pull over and turn the ignition off, then it woulf fire right up no problem. After it had done this a couple more times I tried to simply restart the motor with the tranny in N, still rolling, and started fine.
Last week I was driving and my truck started to loose power while driving, and when I finally came to a stop it idled like it was missing on a cylinder or 2. I pulled over as soon as I could shut the engine off, restarted it and all was fine. The next day the truck died on my 3 times in 5 miles, and I finally had enough back to the dealer it went.
When it is all said and done the dealer checked everything, including fuel rails all wiring etc. the only code that was found was for low oil pressure.
Replaced the oil pressure switch and got sent on my way.
Sure as heck 2 days later my truck dies again, but restarts immediately and performs like a champ.
I really don't like my dealers approach to the problem, It was my idea to switch the oil pressure switch. Noe they will want to replace every sensor 1 at a time, until problem is fixed. Worse case they do that and then replace the FICM.
DOES ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA WHY A 6.0L WOULD DIE, THEN START UP RIGHT AWAY NO PROBLEMS?
Thanks for your help.
