2003 f250 powerstroke fuel cutout problem
hello all, i have a 2003 f250 powerstroke 6.0, i was driving today and suddenly the truck fell flat on its face, the engine went from running 2000 rmp to an idle and i still had the fuel pedal pushed down, so i pushed the pedal all the way to the floor and the engine speeded up, but only just a bit more then the idle, was enough to get me home though.
when this happens the glow plug light comes on for about 3 seconds then goes back off, the check engine light does not come on and all the other guages work fine.
it happened more later when i went back out to try it again, when this happens, i can take my foot off the accelerator pedal for a few seconds, then it seems to work fine, good spped and fast pickup, till it falls down again and has no throttle, then i can repeat, either push the pedal all the way to the floor to get enough speed to get home or take my foot off the pedal, and hope it resets and everything is ok till it happens again,,, seems to happen about every 5 minutes or about every mile.
any thoughts , 911 its my work transportation, gotta get it fixed quick
