Similar Problem! Looking for a solution, too...
Hi! I left my truck at work today, too.
I've got a '99 F-350 Powerstroke Diesel. Today I drove it at lunch-time without a problem. Went out about four hours later to come home and started the truck. It ran for about 5 to 10 seconds and then died suddenly. Engine cranks normally, and I can hear the fuel pump when I turn the key to the warm-up position, but there is no evidence of fuel (smoke of any color) in the exhaust. Tomorrow, I hope to trace to a fuel cut-off solonoid--I'm hoping to find one in the fuel circuit, but I haven't looked to see that there is one in the system, yet. :-( It may be a fuse or a failed solonoid, or it could be something I am not yet aware of...I am open to suggestions. Thanks!!
