randomly shutting off?
Hi I'm new to diesel's and just bought a 97 F250 4X4.
I bought the truck sat and started driving it monday, but today after about an hour long drive at about 75 I got off and shortly down the road came to a red light and the truck stalled on me while sittin at the light. started back up after a couple crank's, then it did the same thing a little later while backing into a parking space about 3 mile's down the road. after I came back out an hour later or so it fired up and drove around the city fine with no problem's. but on the way home after the hour drive at 75 a short time when I got off the interstate it died on me again.
now I know either the fuel pump is going or an O ring is leaking on the back of the driver side valve cover, it's not a bad leak but you can tell it's their. which I'm going to be fixing this weekend.
I'm hopeing that mabye it's just getting air mixxed with the fuel and is causing it to stall out and will be fixxed when the fuel leak is fixxed. but I figured I'd post up to see if anyone knew of somthing else it may be.
unrelated I also found out that the auto locking hub's arn't locking when put in 4 wheel, is their a trick to it or is their anything that is known to fail on them that can be an easy fix. or should I just get the warn manual kit?
