Hey guys I just got an 02 7.3 powerstroke a few. Ugh ya ago he told me it needed a idm but after I went and looked and finally got the truck to crank it ran great and he really didn't no what he was talkin about much like myself. I have replaced the ipc and cps but truck still wants to suddenly die while driving and another trick it started a little whole ago is it will now idle but won't hardly let me rev it just sputters. What's rong woth my truck?! Help plz

WELCOME TO THE ORG !!! Clean oil? Right oil at proper level? Clean fuel and filter? Water in fuel? Proper fuel pressure / good strong pump? Loose or chaffed valve cover / injector wiring harness? Loose or chaffed Injector Driver Module harness (IDM inside driver fender well)? Good luck...

I agree after continuously messing with it I got it running a and drove 15 miles no issues but left it in the driveway idling suddenly once again it's like ilyou cut the key truck started right back up tho. I do notice when it is running it doesn't sound quite right tho. I left it sitting for awhile and came back started it and same thing sputters and sputters until I cut it off and start it 20 times and the engine gets warm then it seems to rub decent still doesn't sound correct tho. I'm leaning twards injector harnesses what do you all think?? Thanks for the help!

I no I sound dumb right now but i grew up in cummins trucks. So if idm codes are detected would you bet it's bad or I have to find a way to read those to find my issue? Sorry I'm so dumb with these things and thanks for the help
