truck not going over 75

Friend of mine has a 6.7 i talked him into buying. he called last night a couple of states away and has been having issues. It is out of warranty and he hasn't deleted yet but they replaced a fuel pressure regulator on one side and now tell him it is the hpfp. It will drive okay up to 75 mph last night while pulling a 4000 lb enclosed trailer. I am not a diesel mechanic but the longer I talked to him the more it seemed like a fuel supply problem not a hpfp problem. I would think if you could get to 75 and it won't go any higher it is running out of fuel but more likely it is a volume problem of it getting to the hp pump rather than the hpfp not working properly.

Any advice would be great. He doesn't have a scanner but is supposed to go by autozone tonight and get the code for the check engine light so i can research it for him

MyKey Does he have this? Previous owner could have set a reduced speed assigned to that key.

Agree with lug. He needs to check the MyKey. If a top speed was set, he should be able to clear it using the dash menu.

It def. sounds like previous owner has setup Mykey with a speed limiter. Hopefully this is the culprit.

The shop he went to is looking to make big $$$$ from an out-of-towner! Start with the cheap stuff; fuel filters if the mykey isn't the fix. Make sure he's at the shop to see what's in the filters when they pull them, too. DON'T trust them.

He said he had just had filters changed and watched them do it but I recommended him try replacing again just in case had a bad filter
