7.3 down and racking up a bill quick.
I was on my way home yesterday morning and all of a sudden it started missing hard and died out refusing to run. I coasted into a parking lot and deternined I had fuel to the filter bowl, number 30 fuse was good oil good and just under a1/4 tank of fuel (plenty). I drained the fuel bowl and ran the pump for a bit in an effort to clean any water or debris in the fuel out then repressurised and actually got it to start but it would barely pull its self. I felt lucky cause I was less than a block from the dealership I bought the truck from.
I got it to the lot and waited for them to open. They found that the injector control module was bad and replaced it after test driving they found that there was a loose wire under the valve cover and it was secured and repaired. Or so I thought.
I picked the truck up today, started right up but sounded a bit rough but it was cold. I gave it a few min and started out of the lot as I got on the main road it would shutter continue to run but bog down waiting at a light like it was going to quit. I managed to get turned around and get it back to the dealership where it would barely move around the lot. The mis in at least 2 cylinders is obvious and it is there waiting for morning.
I am already down 360.00 for the diagnosis and the replacement of a ICM that I got from a buddy (another 100.00 to pay out) and i am barely ahead of where I was. Now back for a second day in the shop and I am running out of funds.
Can anyone provide any guidance regarding where to go with this? I am really in trouble and in need of some guidance.
