2000 7.3 stalled, no start
Hi, I have a 2000 7.3 auto. Last week ran out of fuel and low on oil. Got it back up after some fuel than stalled again, added oil then started up, filled up and she was fine. Over the weekend hauling 10 times heavy loads, on the highway at 45-50mph she would hiccup here or there, not a ton but a few times randomly and then not do it at all.
Yesterday afternoon coming home from work she stalled, just under the 1/4 tank pin mark, on a flat road. Added 5 gallons of fresh diesel nothing, towed home. Tried new CPS, checked fuel bowl, flows fuel, etc. Slight leak at fuel filter cap o-ring (its wet). Batteries ran low been charging them and have been above 10.5volts.
I got no smoke/fumes out the exhaust. Got fuel to the bowl/pump etc. Fairly clean fuel filter. Hooked AE and ran it. Buzz test x5 checks out very good. ICP 0psi. Unhooked ICP 2300psi+ spike on crank. over 100rpms, 10.5v+, etc. Check for loose wires, connectors, fuses all check out. Not that cold out.
Oh, oil leak, very slight, I haven't found yet, had oil in the valley earlier this year but even since my new stealth pump, none in valley.
There is oil in the Hpop, just around an inch from top.
