died while driving, towed home, 3 days trying and still no start
Hi guys, been followin yall 3 years and youve fixed every problem I ever had. THANK YALL!
Now I got a 2000 excursion 7.3. Around 400k miles. Has been doin the white smoke at startup with shaking (kinda like misfire) for a while. It smoothes out within 1 minute every time. Other day, left it idleing at a store, came out and it was off. Cranked back up and drove wierd... Went to 3k rpm before it shifted, od light wouldnt turn off, etc. All that smoothed out within 1 minute driving, so no worries. 5 miles later.... Died. While it was still rollin in gear, it was staying running, but once it rolled to a stop, the candles were out.
Put a new cps in it, nothing. injector drive module, nothing. #30 fuse not blown. Oil and fuel filter has 1k miles on em. Air filter cleaned at that time. Thanks to yall, removed valve covers and drivers side was almost unpluged, so took care of that.
The "wait to start" and "water in fuel" lights flash and a cadence of 60 flases per minute... I never seen that. On two occasions tryin everything, I turned the key on and they DID NOT flash, just acted normal. Thos two times, the truck fired right off as normal, ran for 30 seconds and died like I turned it off. While these lights are flashing, there is the #302 relay under the hood clicking at the same cadence. I swaped it also with a good one, but no start.
HPOP is also full, it has always had a slow leak down, so I have to fill it up at least once per oil change. But its always the 1st thing I check. Or... Yall think the o-ring inside it fillay took a dump?
I trust yall way more than ford, and dont mind sweatin, cussin, and bleedin..... But I hate losing! Anyone got a sugestion?
