New truck already at the shop
Hello everybody I've read a lot on this forum and feel pretty confident in my new purchase of my 2001 7.3 and Ill try not to write a novel. This is my first diesel truck I purchased a week ago. It has 147k miles and is stock. Truck was bought and was a one owner out of Jacksonville fl. They drove it to greenville sc where I purchased the truck. They did and oil change and seemed a new ac compressor. Everything checked out ( I did the best pre purchase inspection I could with information compiled from the interweb) so I drove the truck home 350 miles no problem and the next day cranked her up idle for 2-3 minutes then off I go. Well so I thought truck had no power RPM's go up and truck very very slowly accelerates got it up to 40 mph in about 1 mile. Engine running smooth and no smoke.( truck never smoked before even when getting on it) pulled over checked under the hood for fluid levels and hoses and such with no findings so I scratched my head for a minute and proceeded to drive home same thing except this time when it got to around 30 mph she gave out. A slow loss of all power until completely stopped then died. Tried to restart and nothing. Turned over at regular speed just no start. Still smooth no jolting or rough running just a quick loss of all power. So called the tow truck and tried to trouble shoot on the side of the road. My dad has a 97 and he had a ac compressor completely lock up on him so I was able to get the belt off and then she cranked right up but was running rough. I let it run maybe 10 sec and shut
It off. Figured I'd get her home and with the ac off and the belt back on she'd run. No dice wouldn't start with belt on. So pop the belt off again and no start. So not having a diagnostic computer and just buying the truck I decided on taking to the shop. Long story short the dealership isn't paying for the fix. So I changed the fuel filter just cuz and was going to start replacing sensors but decided to get it to the shop for a diagnosis rather then replacing things that may not need replacing. So I'm thinking uvhc, cps,ips, or fuel pump because the fuel pump seems to be making a noise that I didn't recall before and the filter was dirtier than I would have thought. Oil levels are on point and hpop has oil. But I don't have a means of checking pressures. So how much should a shop charge just to tell me what's wrong. I'm new to this area and the dealership has a bad rap. I'm a paramedic and this shop does all are trucks maintenance and has a good rep. Just don't want to get taken to the cleaners when im mechanically inclined just don't have some of the fancy tools. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help y'all
I attached a pic of the bowl sorry didnt get one of the filter. Should it have this much sediment(****) in there.
