Very rough idle, dies, won't accelerate
Yesterday I had taken a left turn with my truck, and a check engine light went on and the engine started running very rough. It wouldn't accelerate - just sort of idled off to the side of the road. I figured I had water in my fuel since i had to go through some pretty deep water to pump out some homes two days before. I drained the fuel bowl two or three times and it improved the situation. The engine started ran fine, i started to drive to a house where i can park the truck and it started idling rough again and i had to pull over, drain the fuel bowl and do it again. I could barely go 500m without pulling over. I'm going to put a new fuel filter on, to see if that improves it any. Does anyone have any suggestions?
The truck is a 1995 F250 HD 7.3 powerstroke, with 367,000 kms.
