problem is there but diagnostics do no good. HELP!!
intermittent missing and no power when problem happens. Turbo is working, fuel pressure is above min acceptable spec at 65, injectors passed test w/engine off, engine running failed diagnostic, removed cat and muffler (not blocked and no change), had EBPS code (sensor was good but fitting was 100% blocked) code cleared after removing blockage, checked injector harness by shaking the wires at valve covers (no change). Problem most often occurs when engine has not had a long time to warm up or truck has been at an Idle for an extended period of time and now it is missing and losing power while driving at a constant speed somewhere near 40 to 50 MPH.
When problem happens I can step on the gas and get almost no response and if I come to a stop it idles rough and RPMs are low about 500 rpms. I have had it in the shop for two days with no resolution and they are out of ideas but are telling me they think it could be the injector harnes with a worn wire or short. Please tell me your thoughts, I am not a mechanic and don't know all the acronyms y'all use in here and honestly don't know a lot about diesel engines. 96 F350 7.3L Turbo Diesel 2WD Auto. Need my truck ASAP please reply with ideas or solutions to this.
