Unhappy 6.4 Left me stranded !! NEED HELP !!

Let me start off by saying this is the first diesel I have ever owned. I bought the truck used about three weeks ago. I havent even made the first payment and it has left me stranded allready.

I was driving down the road and my tuner started beeping at me saying i had low fuel pressure, then the truck died. After sitting for about 10 mins, It fired back up. I made it about two miles. I repeated this about 3 times before making it to a parking lot where i could leave it.

the truck will crank and idle with no problems whatsoever. as soon as i get a load on it , it stalls.

I do not even know where to begin. I assume the first thing i need to do is change the fuel filters. I really need a seasoned vet to chime in and give me some pointers.

Please Help !!

Codes? Maybe your hpfp is going out. How many miles? What mods? etc.

It is not throwing any codes. I get a 2236 (I think) from time to time ,but I think its the ebp sensor. It is an 08 F-350 cc/lb srw. It has an H&S airbox, dpf delete, egr delete, and a Spartan 275 tune. All of this was on the truck when I bought it and I didn't even know it till I bought the truck. I saw the tuner box but I knew nothing about it. Everything I know now I got from reading this forum and talking with a tech from Spartan. I hope it is not the hpfp, cause I am not equipped to pull a cab. Any help will be super !

Hpfp does not require cab removal to replace but that does make it a little easier if you do have lift access. Does your Spartan monitor rail pressure? Maybe turn that on to see what your fuel rail pressure is.

It does show the frp. At idle it is around 6700psi. At normal driving it was usually around 10-12k psi. When it stalled the pressure just fell. Like I said it will idle all day and the fuel pressure looks good. Only when its under a load, driving down the road is when it wants to act up.

Interesting, At idle it seems like the frp is just a tad too high. "Usually" the frp running a 275 tune would be about 5700-5700 psi, and at WOT it should go up to 25ksi or so. Have you messed around with the tuner at all? Maybe loading on a different tune? Maybe it could be a fluke with your tuner. Wouldn't hurt to give it a shot.

I loaded the 275 tune myself. The dealership I bought it from had turned the tune off. What should the filters look like .

If you have any doubt about the condition of the fuel filters you really need to get those changed out asap.
