Red face Newbie here also a 7.3 issue

Anybody know why it would just act like it was dying regardless of how much you pressd the gas? Check engine light came on, pulled over, restarted and it was fine. Weird.

sorry?

It's a 2002 F-250 super duty with a 7.3 liter diesel. Automatic tranny and 4wheel drive. It's a xlt Lariat model if that means anything. It just will die and even with the throttle mashed all the way to the floor it'll quit. I noticed one time there was a lot of smoke coming out of the exhaust but that was the only time. I changed the fuel filter and that seemed to help one time. I added some injector cleaner and that helped oone time but nothing helps all the time. Seems to be the slightest vibration in the steering wheel when driving also that wasn't there before. Any feedback will be appreciated.

Too many variables. Could be a lot of things

Has the CPS been replaced by Ford? Its under recall and should be replaced. That may fix your problem right there.

Next step is to have someone with a REAL scanner check for codes. The basic OBD-2 scanners at autozone will NOT work. Least expensive is an autoenginuity. If codes are found, they will lead you in the right direction.

If no codes are found but there is a weird bogging and it dies, check fuel pressure. You'll need a gauge to do this.

Searching on any of the above terms will lead you to all the information you need.

Thanks a ton. I will call the dealer ship and see if the CPS has been changed as they would have done it and go from there.
