Urgent...'01 Ex broke down roadside
So I'm in the 'Stan and my wife and 3 kids are broke down on the side of the road. Got the truck towed to a local shop.
Not a lot I can do but try and get the mechanic (who I never met and it stresses me out) some good info...no idea if he knows his way around a 7.3L.
Wife says she fired it up after church and it made a slight funny knock sound and quit. Then, as she drove it home, the knock got worse, she lost power while the motor still ran, she couldn't accelerate, and limped it over to the roadside. I think she tried to start it again and couldn't but not sure about that part.
Is this possibly the crank position sensor I've often heard about in the past?
Sure hope it is...
Any solid advice would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
01 Excursion 7.3L with some goodies.
