Need help -broke down on road
I have a 06 F350 6.0
It lost power (like lost turbo) so pulled off road. While pulling off road heard knocking noise so shut off right away. It would (will) not restart. On first attempt it started to turn over then stopped cranking suddenly. Now it will not crank. Starter engauges.
I have a code of P0272. From What I know it is a #4 injector code.
I'm assuming the injector is bad and when I shut down truck it let fuel into cylinder and now locking up engine on #4 cylinder because of fuel in cylinder.
If this is true -- how do I get fuel out? Is it possible to try to hand crank to check to make sure the engine will turn?
I have tools with me so I can tear into it. Just might not have all I need. Plus would have to find someone with injector.
Any more idea's ? What not to do????? I'm assuming I should not try to start, or even turn key on, since it would only dump more fuel into cylinder if that is what it is doing. Is there a way to shut off fuel pumps or stop fuel from going to injectors while turning engine over with starter?
I had it towed to a Pilot and they have a place to work on it but will not touch it until Monday. Said could not get injector untl then.
Have family with me, just starting vaction. Was pulling camper so have place to stay.
I have also replace #7 injector back in March so I have the know how. But would help if I had the links that is on here for it.
