New to fords - 7.3 NO POWER
So, i bought this 1999 F350 not running. the previous owner said it overheated and blew up.
I replaced the CPS and then found out the ICP sensor was missing, as i dumped a ton of oil on the ground. lol. i put a new ICP on and cleaned out the fuel filter. I eventually got it running, but it's WAY down on power.
there is no smoke. i was thinking the old fuel was junk, so i drained the tank with a hose and filled with 15 gallons of fresh diesel. also changed the fuel filter for a new one.
if you're driving it, floored, it'll take ~10 seconds to reach ~2500rpm. you can hear the turbo screaming and the check engine light will come on.... as soon as you let off the gas the light goes out.
what should my next move be?
thanks in advance!
