Help me Please

My 2010 f-350 stopped running pulling the pass in the snow. the tow truck driver said my diesel gelled up. but after sitting about half hour it started and ran fine. There goes that thought. It was towed to dealership, no codes came up. any ideas on what it is and or what to ask the dealership to get this fixed

Both no warning lights and in the shop no codes came up. As far as ford is concerned nothing is wrong or happened

what was the temp outside when it died on ya? is it possible that it warmed up slightly in the 30 minutes it sat and was able to flow fuel again?

it was a boming 7 and did not rise. I am afraid after reading blogs that this is the start of a bad path. Wish I still had my 7.3

Very possible that the diesel gelled if you werent burning a winter blend. If you dont have any codes and the truck is running just fine now i wouldnt be worried about it. Might be worth dropping in a bottle of antigel or fuel treatment during those cold temps.

I use winterized fuel and add anti gel in with each tank fill up. The ford dealership ruled that out. The dealership pulled all the wire plugs involved to make sure they were making contact. So it is running fine now. One day at a time now and dont get me wrong I do like the pickup, just waiting for warrenty to be done to modify it

How about a snow packed air filter that completely blocks air to the engine?
