97 F350 7.3 Stalling
My 97 F350 with a 7.3 has developed a habit of stalling. The truck has 140k miles. The dealership has not been able to diagnose the problem; I am really stuck.
Since the problem began the following repairs have been performed: the cam position sensor and fuel filter have been changed. The transmission has been rebuilt and the torque converter has been replaced.
Description of problem: When the truck is completely cold (I live in Vegas, approx 30F-35F overnite,) it may stall when I am approx 2 miles from the house. There are no lights coming on, except battery (which I believe is normal when truck is not running.) It will not start for approx 5-10 minutes; after which time it will fire right up. Until the 5-10 minute time has passed it will crank normally but will not start. After it has stalled once it will run fine for the remainder of the day (at least so far it will.)
Thanks for any help you can provide. I've scoured this site, which is great, but have not seen a diagnosis to this problem. I've read several posts where the same problem seems to be described but no fix has been posted.
