7.3 shuts of w hard restart, help!
My 2002 7.3 has great power and runs great until it STOPS! It usually happens when I take my foot of the pedal or stop at a stop light. When the engine retards from being under power to idle it'll shot off suddenly and without warning. It's hard to restart often requiring me to move the water separator lever behind the fuel filter, or at times it must sit and wait for about twenty minutes.
I can smell a strong odor of diesel but I see no apparent leak. The engine does not smoke excessively.
In the beginning it did this mostly when the vehicle was under 1/4th tank of fuel but now it's doing it even when I have a full tank of diesel.
I check the oil and fluids, and have changed the filters and breather without luck. I put the Excursion on a computer at a local parts store with no luck, it showed nothing wrong.
If you've experienced this I would greatly appreciate your help!
Thank you, D
