Died while driving 1995 7.3
I have a 1995 psd 5spd cc 4x4. It shut off while driving today. I pulled away from a stop sign, got to third gear and the engine dies, I coasted to a stop. I checked the fuses, the wait to start light comes on and the engine turns over , but won't start.
The tach is moving a bit when cranking. I pulled the chip out, and the tach doesn't seem to move much when cranking when the chip is out.
The schrader valve on the fuel bowl didn't seem to have pressure. I opened the drain on the bowl and then idled the truck for a few minutes before leaving the house, I idled it with it closed for a few minutes so I wouldn't have thought that would be the issue.
I towed it home, went by the Ford house and picked up a CPS and a new fuel filter. I installed the CPS and opened the fuel bowl. Bowl was full of fuel. The filter I got was apparently the wrong one for this truck, so I reinstalled the old filter and topped off the fuel. I cranked on it a bit more, still nothing.
I have the charger on the batteries now and am going to try to check fuel pressure when they get a little healthier.
