Truck cut out and then dies

Was driving 65 mph and the truck would quit running with the tach going completely off when it would cut out. Then ran fine. Can get it to start now but will only run for 20 seconds. New fuel filter 3 months so with only a couple thousand miles. 1999 f350 7.3 any ideas

start by getting codes pulled would be best , sounds like you may just have a simple cam sensor issue

Truck is in shop now. Will update when I find out from shop. Bad thing was I had to have it towed over 30 miles to the nearest shop that works in diesals.

low boost could be as easy as a boot blown off. Always keep a spare CPS, they're $20-30 and are the most common problem on a 7.3. and it takes less than 10 min to change it out on the side of the road.

Well it also had a wiring issue with the intake heater. They also said the turbine had been dusted. Whatever that means. Will talk to the mechanic when I pick it up.

intake heater? you mean glow plugs? powerstrokes don't have intake heaters like the cummins do. I'd be careful about this shop. ask to see the compressor wheel and make sure it actually looks torn up around the edges. what air filter are you using?

It might not be called a intake heater but there is a valve on the exhaust that will open and close I believe.
