2000 F250 7.3 loss of power, no start, black smoke while cranking
Hello everyone, I went to leave my home yesterday and the truck started and ran fine. I went to pull out of the driveway and the truck lost all power. It would not climb to speed with the pedal to the floor (felt similar to a plugged catalytic converter on a gasser).
I immediately turned around and drove back up the drive. Shut the truck down and restarted but loped badly at idle and kept trying to stall. The truck has never given me problems before and I am at a loss. I talked to a few mechanics and tried a few things.
The tuner has been disconnected, CPS was replaced, ICP was unplugged, Fuel filter was replaced, fuel pump is pumping, intake is clear with no restrictions, and a few other things have been tried. Now the truck will not start 90% of the time but will occasionally start but lope badly. Please help!!!
