99 7.3 HARD start, runs ok 15 seconds then starves for fuel and dies!
First and foremost, I'm new to posting here but have used this forum to keep my truck running since we bought it. We've been throwing everything at this truck for 6 weeks and were stumped.
So, details. 99 7.3 F350 4x4 225k or so. 8 weeks ago we were driving along and she starts running rough...like 4 cylinders, buckin' and Kickin' rough. 3 miles into our limp home and voila....she pulls out of it and runs just fine. 2 days later, same thing. A week later, she starts not it and never stops. Limped her home and started trying to figure out what's wrong. Now she starts Hard, runs ok for 10-15 seconds a d then starts loping ugly like, starves and dies. So far she's got
One new #7 injector
2 new valve cover gaskets
Fresh oil change
New fuel filter
Dropped the tank and cleaned the socks
(Girlfriend has tried begging and pleading with it to no avail)
Currently OWNED by a 99 7.3! Here for help!
