2000 F250 7.3L No start/start/dies
OK Here is a commonly asked problem/question.
Problem: Driving on Super Bowl Sunday morning 1 mile down the road to get newspaper and truck died just like shuttin off ignition switch ( I didn't). Crank, Crank, Crank....no start. Wait 2 minutes crank and it starts for 3-5 seconds. Crank and no start.Left in middle of rural dirt road to get tow vehicle.30 minutes later came back. Crank, started, drove 1/2 mile down road, died again, no restart. Towed home.
Hooked up scan tool...no codes. No check engine light.
Tried starting again 2 hours later. It started up and ran for 3-5 minutes at idle and 1500-2000 rpm then died. No restart.
Scanned again for codes. No codes.
Checked fuel filter bowl...full of fuel.Drained it twice. Heard fuel pump running the stop after 10-15 seconds to fill bowl again.
Still no start.
ANY BODY HAVE ANY IDEAS??? I DONT CARE ABOUT SUPERBOWL NOW!
