96 7.3 Powerstroke/My income in jepordy!!!
I'm completely new here so maybe someone can PLEASE help me!!! I have a 96 f250 powerstroke,230k. I did a 400 mile trip today and the last 2 miles from home the alt bearings failed,ripped the belt to shreds. I figured only 2 miles, actually less I'll limp it home no problem. Made it home,went and got new alt from Advance and a belt. Replaced parts now truck will not idle. Starts up, surges a bit, check engine light comes on and dies. Tough to restart but hold peddle a bit and runs just fine but let of it surges a bit and dies again.
Please help, how do I check for codes? Suggestions? This truck is my taxi and my income.
