Need Help Please, Possible Clogged Injecters??

Hello, I'm new to this forum and I need help. I have a 2001 f350 with7.3 ps. I had fuel delivered on monday and filled my tank with diesel. Problem is the tank had sat empty for almost a year and evedentlly had some water and junk in the bottom of tank and you guessed it all that went into my tank. Now I have drain the tank completly and added conditioner and changed filter. The truck cranked and would run but very rough and after 30 minutes of idling still not running smooth and eventually died. Today I drained the tank again and added more fresh fuel and another new filter the truck would not start. I used ether to get it started and it finally would idle on its own but very rough. when i try to rev the motor it will act like it is running out of fuel and die. Is it possible that the injecters are clogged??? I need to get this truck going asap can anyone offer any suggestions please. I almost forgot to mention I'm running a 60 hp piggyback superchip.. Thanks, Jimmy

This truck was running fine on monday until I filled the tank with fuel out of my storage tank and 10 minutes later the water in fuel light came on and the truck quit running. The water in fuel light is not on now. The truck will run smooth as long as I shoot ether in the intake about every 2 seconds. When the ether is gone the truck runs very rough and eventually quits.I had no problems before filling with the fuel from my tank. I know the fuel was good when delivered because I had two tanks filled and have filled two tractors and had no problems , but that fuel is in a different tank than the one i filled the truck with.

First of all NEVER, i repeat NEVER use either in a modern diesel....You WILL cause ring damage and further problems...If it is nessicary to use a starting fluid, use WD40, its not perfect, but is the best option....

The first thing i would do is go run it very hard, try to push any restricions out of it. Another member here ran into a very similar situation with an additive that caused contamination into the fuel system, and hes putting eight injectors in his because of it....honestly, cleaning everything really well, diassembling and cleaning...is the only thing i can tell you......

Maybe he completely popped some injectors when that water hit them.

hey t-man my name is tim i am the guy marc is referring to. i had the same problem as you water in fuel. i thought the same thing. i thought it was something simple i could fix. it is not that simple. it has beem very expencive and time consuming.let me explain what i have done. i started with changing my fuel filters. that is a important to do untill you see they stay clean. the next thing is to pull your tank and clean your screens in the sending unit and completly empty the tank. make sure there is nothing in there.then i disconnected all of my soft fuel lines and blew air through them to check for clogs.(you will need a special disconnect tool found at local parts store). be sure you do not blow air into the tank, fuel pump or the filter assembly on the motor. then i dissembled fuel filter bowl. there is a fuel heater and the black post that the filter sit on. there is two torx screws that hold that piece in. my black piece had crap in that i cleaned out. that is about all you can do with out getting into the hard lines. i didnt go any farther. one thing i did find is that it seemed to idle good after drained the fuel bowl untill it filled up again then idled rough again.i also found it idled good if i opened the yellow fuel bowl lever when running. does any of this sound famliar.so after all of this i took it to the shop. after two days of the mech. replacing every sensor on the truck. the final word was i had six bad injectors. they wanted over $300 bucks for each one so i got on the net and found 70 hp stage II injectors for a $1000 bucks less they are $1650 for bdp (bean)injectors. they will be in first of next week. just hang tight and i will let you know if it solves the problem. my # is 602-570-3677 if you have any more questions cause i am tired if typing good luck with your truck
