Hard Cold Start, then DTC and Stall
Hi Everyone... initially posted this then realized it was my first post. I've been lurking around reading up on the PSD 7.3 since I bought mine 2 mos ago, but hadn't yet posted. Bought this f450 DRW in Cali a couple months a go to haul a 2 car trailer to canada and back a few times. Made my first trip up, and was going to go back this week, when (start initial post):
I drove my '00 7.3 from California to Ottawa, Canada two weeks ago. Left it sitting, and tried starting tonight.
In Cali, on colder mornings, there was a lack of power when cold and rough idle that cleared up after a minute.
There is no block heater on the truck (i didn't see one at least).
Tonight, I went to start and it just did not want to. Would crank 15 seconds, stop, turn the key off and pause, turn the key back on until the "Wait to Start" lamp went out, then try again.
After about 8-10 tries, it started and idled like it was running on 3 or 4 cyls. When it smoothed out (4 or 5 minutes) I played with the pedal a bit, took it up to 1500-1750 rpm twice, it struggled to do this, then the Check Engine light came on and it stalled. Cranked it over once and it was doing the same thing as it did when it was cold(er) so I stopped.
Checked fault codes and got 2: P1316 and P0470. I've looked into the archives and see that these two codes suggest different issues, i.e. p1316 is IDM related and P0470 is EBP related.
I'd like to know if anyone knows of a failure or issue that would trigger both DTC's and give the above symptoms?
If not, soes anyone out there have any advice on what issue to start with based on the symptoms given?
Thanks in advance!
