2001 7.3 stopped running & now won't turn over
Okay Guys, hang in there...pissed off female...I was drivbing to the local store, tunred the truck off, went & it started up & drove out, then suddenly turned the engine off for no reason. NOw this happened frequently when I first bought the truck & a guy at a shop recognized the problem & replaced a sensor of some sort that would show good on the terstors, but turn my truck off. I am currently assuming that was the CPS, happened in 2002, so now we have replaced a ton in 2 days!
I was driving the engine stopped running, but the truck was coasting, all the lights lit on the dash, battery, oil, service engine at once & then gone. I put it in neutral & tried to restart & you can hear the engine trying to start, but won't turn over ( please excuse me if I use the wrong terms- new at this), a friend stopped, found diesel coming out fine from some area in the top middle back. We towed it home. Changed the fuel filter, nothing, the fuel pump, nothing, now the CPS, still the same. Everything lights up, you can hear it trying to start( like it's out or low on fuel-like an old chevy truck that used to stran me alot when tanks wouldn't switch) I have 3/4 a tank of fuel from a place I have had no trouble from for years, & it sells a ton of diesel ( farming area). So now what?! It's the sound right before the engine turns completely over & starts. no ticking like a starter problem. My husband is threatening to shoot my truck, & the rest of my family drives Chevy. Please help! I love my truck & my husband & would like then to exist in peace again. Thank you. Raegan
