16 F-350 Low Fuel Pressure & Reduced engine power warning
I have a 2016 F-350, C.C., 6.7L PS, 3.73 gears, DRW, King Ranch, FX4, with almost 20,700 miles on it.
This morning it was much colder than it has been so I started my truck and let it run for a few minutes before I left (0800) to drive to my sisters house to make breakfast for my mom.
@0900 I drove back to my place, 1155 I drove to my sisters house to make lunch for my mom, a total of 1.8 miles.
@ 1300 I got in my truck to go to the grocery store, got about half a mile from my sisters house and got a "Low Fuel Pressure" warning, about 1 tenth of a mile later I got a "Reduced Engine Power" warning, went about another tenth of a mile at 2 mph before the truck died right in the middle of the street after a curve in the road. Tried to restart the truck and it fired up after close to a minute of cranking, it went a few feet farther and it died at the exit of the curve. I had it towed to the Ford dealer I bought it from.
I had the fuel filters, the oil changed and had the 20K mile service done last month (19,800 miles), I've put about 800 miles on it since then, I also have the Ford Premium Care extended warranty.
The power train is bone stock with the exception of a K&N air filter and an Amsoil dual remote oil filter system.
The hardest this truck has been used is whenever I go camping and tow my 30' fifth wheel (9400 lbs loaded including the 51 gals of fresh water in the tank).
I know about the HPFP issue and am wondering if this is what might have happened to my truck.
Hopefully they'll be able to get the truck in a bay and diagnose the problem tomorrow.
The only other major issue I've had with this truck is when I had to replace both batteries because of a acid leak from the positive post on the passenger side battery, which was in Sept, I also still have to have the battery cable harness replaced but have been putting that off since the part is back ordered and $285.
I'm hoping the repair will be covered by the extended warranty, otherwise I'll have to borrow the money from my mom which means no one will be getting Christmas presents from me this year.
Can anyone tell me what might be wrong, other than the HPFP?
