02 7.3 sputters and jumps at same place on road
Hi everyone, this is my first post. Here in Texas it is around 60-70 degrees most of the time currently. I just bought a 02 7.3 DRW and often I start the motor, back out and take a right (idling), to the light, turn right and begin to accelerate. About 50 yards from there it sputters or looses power breifly, and repeats for a few seconds, and all is good afterwards.
I did the injector tuneup, changed the filter, and oil.
Any ideas? Is it the hpop or lpop? I read similar issues by searching this site. Do these engines just need to warm up even in warm climates? Could that be the prob?? I know little about motors or diesels.
Thanks in Advance - Carter
