2000 F350 dies intermittently
Have a friend with a 2000 F350 with the 7.3 PSD.
Has 175K on it, and basically runs great. Plenty of power etc.
Last couple of days however, he can be driving down the road and it will suddenly die... sometimes it will start right back up, other times it may take 10-30 minutes to restart. Hooked it up to the scantool tonight, no codes, no pending codes. Went to go to test info, and it said that test results would not be valid because it hadn't completed one drive cycle... thought that was weird, looking at data, and all of a sudden it died... when it did, the scan tool wouldn't communicate with the EEC... wouldn't restart either... after about 5 minutes, it would start and I could connect to the EEC again... no codes. It appears like the EEC is losing power somehow... is there a common problem that could be causing this?
