Is this Fuel Related? fuel pump, high pressure pump?
I have an 03 7.3 it has 155k on the clock. the other day i was driving it and out of nowhere it started running like ****. check engine light and huge power loss. It feels like every cylinder is misfiring. When you start it it runs fine for ten seconds and then starts choking like it is starving for fuel. My fuel gelled up last winter and it acted the same .way as when that happened. i naturally changed the fuel filter. the fuel filter has less than 5k on it. so im still gonna check it. whn the problem occured my fuel light had just came on maybe 3 miles prior to it malfunctioning. So i was wondering... being i was climbing a decent grade when the problem occured, could it have not had enough fuel pumping to where i essentially ran itself out of fuel even though there was fuel in the tank? Just trying to make sense of this issue. or could my high pressure fuel pump be fried. i dont think it would be the main one in the tank but who knows. Please help with any suggestions or comments you may have. it wont hurt. I just got laid off two weeks ago, so of course this would happen at a time like now. fml
