99, 7.3 died, cranks but will not start
Driving my 7.3, let off on the throttle to slow down for a turn and motor died, coasted into a driveway and tried to restart. Cranks but will not to start. When it died noticed only lights lit on the dash was battery, water temp and the overdrive lock out light on the gear shift was on. Did not have a cel lit.
Tried to start the truck this AM, got all my lights except the "wait to start", turns over but will not fire any cylinders. The overdrive lock out is not lit on the sift lever. Do not have a cel.
Waiting for an analyzer to be delivered to check if any codes have been set, won't be here until 11/13.
This truck has 300k on it and has been very reliable, have replaced the turbo , water pump and alternator, transfer case and a new transmission last year. The motor uses no oil and get about 17 mpg with no load and have never had the fuel system cleaned or overhauled. It has never left me stranded. I have put 3 cam position sensors in it but none of them left me stranded, they would cut out once in a while and set the cel. The last cps was replaced about 6-7 years ago.
