E99" F250 SD PSD 7.3 Engine Miss
Hey - so to start off, I figure i picked up a bad tank of fuel, as my truck started to run crappy, so i decided to change the fuel filter, once the housing was opened i seen the diesel looked very poor, and not long after i got the " water in fuel" light.
So after driving to work in the morning, I stopped to pick up some parts, when i started the truck again, and tried to accelerate quickly, around roughtly 2600 rpm, the truck kind of stuttered or missed.
I limped the truck to work, once work was over ( as i work in a hd shop), i brought my truck in and drained the fuel, tank + bowl, I replaced with brand new fuel.
I still feel a slight hesitation when accelerating, i havent had a chance to take it on the highway yet and get it up to temp since i got the cruddy fuel out
my first thought was an injector, I watched for smoke or rough start when it was cold this morning, nothing, it idles perfect, drives great, its just when you romp on it it hesitates (right around 2600rpm). I have a friend bringing his snapon code reader out of camp on friday to check for codes, try injector cut out and cyl contribution.
I'm just hoping someone will tell me in in the right direction, I'm wondering if im not getting enough fuel flow, maybe the poor fuel w/ water ate my fuel pump?
I'm just looking for any help i can get, thanks guys
