She is stalling and or dying constantly, I've replaced the IDM, cam sensor, unplugged the icp... Replaced the IDM after it just died then no restart, after replacement fired right up. She had been cutting out for a while, when it happened all I had to do is take my foot out of it and back to normal, all the lights would come on, then go off. Few days ago went to start her and she ran like she was a bout to run out of fuel, pulled valve over, did the old quarter trick, fred right up, noepw she stalls, or just dies like key turned off.. Crazy, never had a single problem with her!

I am going to give it a try, not the best diesel mechanic, but I don't think this one is to difficult, I think she is just playing hard to get!
