Died while on Highway...

Okay so I just bought the Excrusion and haven't really had any problems with it. put a 4" turbo back, Edge tunner, and AFE intake a couple weeks ago. Truck has been running great until last night. It took more cranks than usual to get started in hot weather. Then later I made a Home Depot run and on my way back, it just died on me while on the highway. I was able to coast to the shoulder. About 45 minutes later, I switched tunner back into stock mode and it started right up...so I assumed it had something to do with the tunner, but i'm not sure if my fuel pump might be going out??? Should I get a lift pump? I'm kind of lost at what my next step should be here.

Sounds like possible ICP, IPR problems. Unplug the ICP sensor on the driver side of the motor, put in the tune you were driving in, see if i has any issues.

If issues. ICP sensor is okay.
If no issues, ICP sensor is bad

After starting it again last night, I just drove it home and it seemed to drive fine with tuner on stock.

Haven’t checked fuel bowl and didn’t get a chance to do anything to it or take it anywhere today. It has a little over 217,000 miles

OK, so you need a scantool of some sort to check for CPS function (earlier trucks move the Tach while cranking to show it's working). And a truck that dies on the road and then restarts once "cooled-off" often is about a bad CPS (be sure you ONLY use a Ford/IH CPS).

If you're gonna keep & maintain the truck yourself I strongly suggest you get access to the special scanner software you need to do it.

Here you have a couple of the most common choices;

1) If you want to do Everything you'll ever need to, then look at the AutoEnginuity + the Ford Enhanced Package (@ $350 - you add an old computer of some sort to run it with)

2) To retrieve most of the codes you'll need to help and even do some testing look at the FORscan Lite or TorqueApp (you add an Android device and Blue Tooth Adapter for @ $30) OR the Windoze version with a USB adapter. I like this one for BT Android -> http://www.amazon.com/BAFX-Products-...dp/B005NLQAHS/

Just a few years ago you needed to buy a professional scan tool because our trucks need to have a scanner with a Library containing both the Ford Proprietary AND the Diesel Specific codes in it. Add to that, our trucks are Not, specifically, OBD-II so the Generic scanners the Auto Parts Stores have are of little use to us. But today there are some very good App based tools, that are close to what the pro tools do, for fraction of the cost.

Once properly equipped, you can check vital engine sensors and compare their values between when it will & will Not start. For the $30, it's a smart investment

UPDATE— So I ended up changing out the IPR and upgraded to the new CPS. The Excursion still has original of both. We’re back in business! Thanks you guys for responding and the input.
