no fuel? just quit, need it running asap!
This is a 96' 7.3. My wife was driving it two weeks ago, and it just quit on her, she couldn't get it started, so got a ride to town. I went out 2 hours later and drove it home with no problem at all. It ran for a week, then it kind of hesitated twice and tryed to stall then came back. I thought it was the fuel filter so I bought one, got side tracked and didn't put it in. Today on my way to work it just died, and after cranking a little bit the battery died, while I was waiting for a jump, changed the filter thinking that was my problem, got a jump, started up no problem, drove to work. My wife dropped me off cause she needed the pickup, she sat at my shop for about a half hr, then made it a mile, I went and jumped it again, it made it two miles and won't start at all, on ether it will start right up, but not stay running (glow plug relay is gone! I know ether=bad) which leads me to believe its a fuel problem. It just had a new hpop and lpop and some other stuff last year. My thoughts are the fuel pump, I was going to pick one up in the morning to try it but if someone has another suggestion please help. And to let you know there is fuel in the bowl when you pull the filter.
