Truck Won't Keep Running after Replace IDM
I've a 97 7.3L powerstroke. The truck was running fine till the week before when I was on the way home there was an accident on the highway. The traffic was jammed and my truck sat in line idling a lot and moved once a little slowly on the highway. All of sudden it felt losing power. I barely made home that night, and after that it wouldn't stay running after starting, die soon like starving for fuel. I called the diesel mechanic. He changed fuel filter, fuel pump, and ran the scanner through the engine, showed "Faulty IDM". It is an expensive part and I am not sure that is the problem, anyhow I ordered an used one which guaranteed to work or your money back. I put it on, started the truck, still the exactly the same thing! Engine will spin or even start and then died like out of fuel!
I'm frustrating cuz this is my working truck, and as everyone know, everything on this engine costs a lot...I'm looking for some ideas or suggestions from your guys. Thanks
