Truck died please help!
I started my truck today and let it idle to warm up. I was checking my tire pressures when it cut out. I restarted and again it ran for a minute and stalled. I started it again and backed out of my drive and it died again. The truck is a auto 99' 7.3L diesel.
I thought my fuel gauge was stuck or something and it was low on fuel so i managed to drive it without problem to the gas station, filled, then drove home and within the 3 mile trip it died at a stop and once driving about 25mph where i lost all power brakes and steering. I'm new to diesels and this truck. Please tell me what could cause this.
The truck just hit 97100 miles and is showing a yellow maintnance required light. I have superchip on tow/performance, K&n filter and 4" exhaust. I tried reprograming the chip, not to stock yet, and that didn't help.
Please shed some light. I just bought the truck and don't need it to crap out on me already. I'm gonna call ford tomorrow, but wanted some oppinions of what i shoutl do first.
Sorry for the long post.
