7.3 stalls while driving

Hello all,

I am new to powerstroke.org and have bought my first diesel and have joined with a problem.

I have a 99 7.3 I have only had about 5 weeks and in the last week I will be driving and this thing will die for a split second (the lights on the dash come on, wait to start ect.) and then take of like nothings wrong. On the way home tonight it happend 3 times in 15 miles. Really getting worried now.

I bought this from a good friend who takes care of his trucks like their part of the family. general service is up to date down to the oil change.

I'm hoping someone here can give me a place to start since i know nothing about a diesel engine,yet.

Thanks.............Rich
