Ok gurus I need your help!
Info - 02, 7.3, auto, edge juice w/attitude, 4 in straight pipe, K&N intake, oil leak, full tank of fuel
Today my truck shut off on its own after running for about 2 min, I coasted off the road and and tried to restart it. It cranked and cranked and cranked, nothing. So for poops and laughs I d/c'd the edge and it cranked the first time, but fired after 3 seconds of cranking on the second try. When it fired it was idling very rough and I gave it a little skinny pedal to try to clear out what ever may have been the issue. After that it idled just fine so I shut it off and plugged the edge back in and it fired up and idled just fine so I finished my station switch and parked it.
Fast forward to tonight -
Had a chance to check the oil and it wasn't even on the dip stick, so I went down to my local parts joint and bought a gallon. It took the whole thing and is just up to the cross hatches, so I'll be getting more tomorrow. Worked on cleaning out the valley with some degreaser and water and have a white rag stuffed in there so I can try to find out where the leak is coming from, at least front or back.
Once I finished cleaning I started the truck to see if it was going to light off and if I could get some oil on the rag; fired just fine but no oil so that will have to be for a longer trip day after tomorrow. Used the edge to read the code that is now showing and got two, p1280 and p1212. Used the edge to clear the codes but the 1280 remained. Did it again and the engine kind of died for a second but then ran just fine, rinse and repeat....ugh!
So off to the google machine and nothing to helpful other then d/c the ICP which I did and it still started and ran fine. There was a little bit of oil on the inside but not too much, so tomorrow when god turns the lights back on I'll be cleaning that up.
Ok gurus... What next? Mind you I am at work (and will be until Thursday) and don't have a whole lot of tools but I do have access to parts stores and too much of a desire to fix things even without the "proper" tools sometimes.
