01 7.3 psd running bad
this is my first post here so i hope someone can help out
i live in Australia and even though the vehichle we bought was australian imported the dealers over here are rubbish and i am getting no assistance at all
we have a 2001 7.3l turbo deisel powerstroke, only had the vehicle 3 weeks and until now had no probs
yesterday, out of the blue the car started to run rough (loss of power) and a engine warning light came on and stayed on, didnt have much choice but to drive it home, ran rough all the way home, then jumped on the forum to see what i could come up with, after reading some posts, thought it may be the fuel water drainer.
got up this morning and drove for only about 5 mins to workand it ran perfectly fine, decided to drain the fuel anyways, this has not helped, after driving for about 10 mins this afternoon the engine light came on again, and then runs like rubbish (has no power)
it is going to be hard to get codes read here as the techs dont have much to do with the f series so was hoping someone may be able to give me some ideas
thanks in advance !!
