Truck Died on way home?!?
2002 F250 7.3L with 202K Miles.
Driving home from work, doing 55 mph, all of a sudden the truck starts to slow down, gas pedal does nothing, rpm drops to zero, truck is DEAD. Thought maybe out of fuel(sort of felt like it ran out, but not quite, hard to describe). Called a friend, got 2 gallons of diesel, added to tank(Fuel gauge shows 1/4 tank at this point) Press the water/fuel dump lever and get some fluid out the bottom, which tells me fuel is in the bowl, didn't suck air. Crank the truck and it will run for about 2 seconds, and then dies, when it runs it is really rough(shake truck really hard and bad rough), and after trying over and over until the trucks batteries are dead, i have it towed home. Got it home, charged up, now it just cranks and cranks, sounds like its about to start(fires a time or 2 on its own) and then just keeps cranking. Checked with OBD 2 reader, no codes, but cranked it to the point that the computer lost power, so if there were codes they are gone now...
Suggestions? Ideas? Help??
