1st diesel problem less than 48 hours of owning it!!!
Was going to post in the 7.3 tech/help section but got a window saying I wasn't allowed. Anyhow.
This 00 7.3 I just got yesterday. Its giving trouble already! Hoping you guys might lend some insight for me.
After driving it and getting engine warm then shutting it down, then about 15-30 mins later get in go for a ride. Sounds like an injector is clacking louder than usual. Runs rough like a gas burner with a burnt spark plug/missing. Ive been able to give it some throttle and it straighten up after a few seconds. But tonight I was out cranked it after setting maybe 15 mins. It starts running so rough and lack of power it shuts off. I tried to start it again and it would die. Finally I got it to run enough to get it back on the road and after a mile or so it straightened up and I got it back home.
There is no CEL on so no DTC's and yeah the CEL light does work.
My friend who is a ford diesel tech says that he thinks its a screen for the pickup in the fuel tank thats causeing this. What do you guys think? And where can I get these sending units or replacement screens?
