Exclamation 97 7.3 stalling VERY RANDOMLY!!??!!??

Hey guys, just picked up a 97 7.3 PS for 5800$ w. 170K on the dash . She runs great but in low rpm's at stop signs and going real slow in reverse she will stall. It is really annoying and im wondering what I can do to fix it. Would a dirty fuel filter cause this?

very doubtful its the fuel filter , that doesnt cause as many problems as people think, i would guess the torque converter is locking up and causing the engine to stall, that would be the most common problem for your concern , make sure oil is full and in good shape also

you cant really just check the torque conveter , its one of those things that you just have to have a feel for, the best way to start with diag on this problem is start by pulling codes , see if there are any codes , if no codes its possible to be tc problem, if it is , a new converter would have to be installed , and service trans good, if you know a good trans shop, get there opinion, dont let them just sell you one though , like i say , get some diag done

stalling on these is usually caused by a faulty cam position sensor and this will not alwayws throw a code, it was recalled by ford 95% chance this is your problem
