99 7.3 just quit- wont restart- Need it to feed
99 F 250 4x4
AFE intake, Superchips tuner in tow safe, Hay bed
310,000 trouble free, worked but taken care of, miles
Was going to pull some people out this mornning and the truck just quit...out of the blue, no surging, popping, nothing. Sitting idling in gear staring at the predicament the people were in. Just like you turned the key off. Would not restart. I carry a spare CPS and put it in. No change.
Checked and made sure lift pump was working. It was. Diesel was clear and clean.
Checked the fuses. The "Trailer Battery Recharge" Maxi fuse under the hood was blown. Dont know if it is related because I dont have any trailers with batteries. All other accessories seem to work fine.
Last month, replaced o-rings in the engine mounted oil cooler. No problems.
It has been cold here in the 20's but truck started just like normal without being plugged in. Pulled it home and plugged it in and still no change. Fuel was treated with double anti gel at last fill up.
Other than that, it just quit. It has been used alot recently to pull people out of snow drifts but nothing abusive or out of the ordinary. I did get stuck in a drift but nothing insane. Pulled it out with the tractor.
Im at a total loss. Any ideas of where to go next would be greatly appreciated. No way to check codes until I pull it into the mechanics on Monday. Trying to Save some $$$$. Thanks in advance for your response. Happy new year.
