Exclamation Just when I thought it was fixed!!!

Hey Folks,

Here we go again....I won't bore you with the history of the truck that hates me but, I recently had a Ford reman motor installed in my 2001. This was done at a Ford Dealer to get the best warranty. It runs great....most of the time!! Since the install, every so often the motor just slowly loses rpm and power until it dies. Best way to describe would be as if it is just running out of fuel. It throws no codes or check engine light. Before you ask, yes I replaced the on rail fuel pump with the new motor. Dealer thought it was my Aerotank aftermarket 55 gallon tank so, they dropped it to verify no issue in the pickup or tank. None found of course....Strange part, I just drove from central Texas to Orlando and back (2400 miles) with no issues. Ran like a top, no stalling. It did use a quart of oil during both 1200 mile runs.(?) And this was with towing a 14,000lbs fifth wheel. Now, unloaded the issue starts all over again. WTH!!!! Any ideas/help would be great. It goes back to the dealer on Friday...

Does it start right back up? If not what do you have to do to get it going?
May have nothing to do with your problem but I would be telling the dealer to find out why in the hell your truck is using oil. I assume you paid pretty good $$$ for this engine & oil consumption would be unacceptable to me. If it's still under waranty I would be pissed about that.

I feel your pain -- I have a similar issue. You may want to look through my threads, but I have not found ANY direct problem yet. I replaced tons of parts and thousands of dollars, numerous shops and still nothing yet.

Good luck finding the issue --- if you do figure it out, let me know what it was.
