2000 F250 7.3L was running fine, died, now having issues HELP!
Ok, I am a woman so bear with me. I'm just looking for answers on where to start. Wednesday I left truck running while waiting on the vet. 20 minutes goes by, truck dies. I go turn key off and restart. Restarts, no problems. I turn it off. 30 minutes goes by while I am with the vet. I get in truck start it and drive away. It falters, like I took my foot off the gas and then put it back on. Then it dies. Start it back up and take off again. It starts surging. Like I am pushing my foot on the gas, then letting off. BAD.
We change fuel and air filter today and I get in and take off. Runs great. Another trip to the vet and 10 miles out it starts surging again. I think maybe I got bad diesel so stop and fill up and run injector cleaner thru it. Make it to vet no problems. Then on the way home, I decide to drive it for over an hour to make sure there are no issues. None! It drove like a champ.
Hook up to horse trailer and head off down the road. No problems. Get about 20 miles and stop at stop light and it dies. Start it back up, now it is running ROUGH. Everytime I stop, I have to keep my foot on the pedal so it won't die. Make it home and sitting in it and it dies again. This goes on for 3-4 more times. I finally give up.
Does anyone have any ideas where to begin looking for the issue???
