2000 F-450 7.3, 6 speed manual,141K
Recently replaced 1 Injector and had the other 7 rebuilt also replaced the Glow plugs and the GP Relay. Still will not start if it below 45 degrees, unless I plug it in.
A few days ago it started to Hickup and stalled a couple of times.
Then a couple of days ago I got stuck on a Mud road in northern MO, spun it out and took the truck back to our shop and used our wash wands that clean the under side of the truck.
Today I started the truck after driving for around a Hundred miles without a hick up and it sputtered and started to idle rough when I tried to go it would not rev up under load. I had to slip the clutch to get it moving on flat ground and it would not go over 2500 rpm or over about 40mph downhill. I drove it around 40 miles at around 20 mph average, I bought a new CPS at the local Ford dealer. There mechanic does'nt think its the CPS. Another Diesel Mechanic I know says it is. So does anyone else have any Ideas about either of these problems.
Also it did not smoke at all
