Traveling an broke down.. Christmas help please
04/6.0 late model
Truck started an I pulled out on road. The more peddle you gave it the worse it got till it stalled. Would not restart. If you leave truck for some time it will restart and idle but as you give it fuel it will only rev to 900 rpm max. It will idle for some time an run very smooth. Again when you give it fuel it will not rev over 900rpm
Background: truck has had ALOT of work done to the motor by me. I am semi good with this motor. I am working out of state in N Carolina (Southport) an have very few tools with me. I believe it to be the IPR but am not sure. I have replaced it when I rebuilt the motor but that was pretty much a year to the day.
I have fuel (clean) at the filter on motor.. It ran great up to this. I was at dinner an started fine an drove away... as I gave it fuel there was NO response. Shortly after it died. If you try and restart motor will turn freely but no start. I have a Edge CST an the throttle positioning showed correct. I was to leave tomorrow for Christmas vacation an head home to West Palm, Florida. If I take this to a Ford dealer I know it won't be fixed till after Christmas. I think I can get to the IPR with the turbo an everything in the way using a long bar an a hammer but don't know it that would even be the problem.
I did disconnect the ICP connection while it was running to see if I could get it to work in limp mode but it ran the same.
I'm stuck from home with very limited resources an I need help.
When I rebuild the motor an started it for the first time after doing the head studs you know how you have to crank it for a long time to build pressure.. It's like that but once it gets running will not rev. An when it does die you can not restart for a long time. As if something needs to bleed off.
04/350 with some stuff done to it
