7.3 l diesel problem!!!

sorry for my poor english (I'm Italian), I have a 7.3 powerstroke ford Ecoline E350 1997, teaching you what happened: in regular gear I had two jerks to the engine and then 2/3 mile has stopped, after about 5/10 minutes again after 5/10 minutes of stopping the engine. replaced filter, clean tanks and floating, same problem!!, externally mounted electric pump set in motion after off attached electric pump will not start but nothing. could be the mechanical pump mounted near the diesel filter? that after a while it stops? electric pump of luck was mounted between the tank and the filter, but if the mechanical pump stops working does not pass diesel right? someone can help me? thanks Sergio

If you dropped the tanks have you had a chance to prime the system? And have you checked fuel psi while cranking?

If you can, measure the fuel pressure at the shrader valve (driver's side of the fuel filter bowl) while cranking. The specification is 25 psi minimum and minimum 100 rpm cranking speed. At idle (if you can get it to idle), it should be 50-60 psi. Cheers!

If you have one bad battery, that could cause problems with starting. Many times if one battery is bad, the Check Engine Light will be flashing rapidly along with rapid clicking of the IDM relay in the underhood fusebox. If fuse #22 is blown, the fuel heater (driver's side of the fuel filter bowl, second wiring connection down from the top) has probably shorted (disconnect it and replace the fuse). If the Wait-to-Start light is not illuminating, that may be your problem. Cheers!
