Powerstroke was new to me, bought my PSD last October. That is because I was impressed how Ford had improved in the past. Now I don't know for sure anyway.
A month ago, my PSD just died and won't keep runnng. It would run for maybe 15 seconds then died. Later on tried again ran for 5 seconds I had send this to shop. Thought it was CKP sensor as defective. It was running fine after replace the CKP sensor. I picked it up, 25 minutes of driving. Stalled again with same symptoms, I was very pissed off and took it back to the dealer. The mechanic thought it was fuel pressure regulator and replaced it. He likes my truck so much and asked if I would let him drive home after work. I had no problem with that. Guess what the dealer mechanic found out?
Clogged fuel filters, I said I had replaced just 2 months ago. He then checked the fuel tank, it was filthy and the fuel itself actally smelled like vodka. I was like WTF?
He asked me where I refill my tank. I said that Kwikfill. He then said he is seeing many of suckers like me had same problem. Really I don't know if it is from that ****ty station or else.
So, won't hurt to check fuel filter and tank.
