Then today it died completely but started right back up when he tried. He just put all new filters and fluids in it too. Any idea what the problem could be?
any check engine light....and have you tried to pull any codes......
my guess would be a cam sensor...but with the smell...it coudl possibly be something else.....codes would narrow it down, and if he isnt carying an extra cam sensor in the glove box....buy one, put it in, and if it doesnt work, put the other one in the glove box. most stalling problems on a 7.3 are caused by the cam sensor, so carying an extra is advisable in case you break down.......Marc
