Engine stall while getting out of mud

Hey guys, I gotta 2001 7.3PS 4X4 and was stuck last night. (Nice gumbo mud) Anyway, while I was trying to rock myself out the engine stalled at redline but started right back up. I have Superchips, cold air intake and a 4" exhaust from turbo back. Man, you could hear the air intake screaming...then it shut down. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you just hit the rev-limiter pretty hard. I would try staying away from the limiter. Also, if your not getting it out turning the wheels at 2500 rpms, your probly not going to get it out w/out shifting to another gear. Just my $0.02.

outta the mud

I got out...thanks to a tow truck driver...and he didn't even charge me a dime. Sank it up to the axles. Now my front end hops and shakes somethin god awlful. I have to replace my rotors already...Ive known that and the front end has alwas had a hop in OD, but now it is worse. Thinkin it might be the converter.

I wouldn't be trying to un-stick it in OD...try it in 1st or 2nd next time. You MIGHT have over heated your Tranny. Do you have a Trans-Temp gauge? If not, you should look into getting one ASAP. You SHOULD have an EGT, Trans-Temp and Boost gauge so you can keep an eye on what is going on w/ your truck. It's NEVER good to bounce off the limiter. I've done it too many times in my project car and it has cost me a lot of $$$ b/c I did it too many times missing third gear. Also, in my experiance, if your stuck to the axles, you should just chalk it up and wait for someone to haul you out rather than take the risk of breaking parts. Our trucks are not cheap to work on.

If your in the middle of no where, I'd rather sit and wait for whom ever I called to help me out than risk breaking ANYTHING, and still having to wait for help, while wondering how the heck I'm going to pay for what ever I broke.
Ditty no makey lots of money!
