hello i am new to the diesel truck stuff. i have a problem and hope one of you guys can help, this is my situation.
this is what i bought, a 2002 f350 4x4
with a 7.3. i bought it from my friends family. he passed away and they offered it to me for a great price. this is what it came with. 6 inch skyjaker lift and 35 inch tires. it had 4 inch exhaust a chip that i dont know who makes it. a boost and pyro gauge in a tower setup. it has 102000 miles on it. the truck was always maintained and my buddy was into gettin into the throttle when he wanted. it sat for about 5 months from june till october of this year. it started first turn and i drived it down the road and no problems.
i got it home and cleeaned it in and out. truck was dirty. it came out great. now some one told me to be running it to use up the fuel cause it sat. ok i did this and ran it out of fuel. filled it with ten gallons and it started up no problems. now i go to get the tank filled and it startes to sputer and felt like it was dieing. i got it to the station and filled it. i called a diesel owning friend and he said that from sitting diesel grows algie. he advised me to change the fuel filter asap. so i drove it home and went and got the stuff. changed the fuel filter and did a oil change also. started the truck and took it down the road. tons of balls. no sputter.
now i order a afe stage 2 intake with the level 7 filter. put it on no problems and the thing really woke up. still no problems. the single 4 inch exhaust had some rust holes and needed to be replaced. so i ordered the banks monster duals with the power elbow. took me a hole day to do myself. was a pain in the butt to install but it looks great.
now i start it and it started a little funny. i let it warm up it idled and took the peddle down in park no problem. sounded great reved fast. now i pull out just start to give it gas and it starts to stutter not takin the gas and actually stalled. took the foot of and floored it and it came back alive. took it down the road and it will take all the peddle. and the thing flys. or it will do the sputter die thing. could be at 1500 rpm or higher. its always different. it always comes back on when i let my foot off anf then give it gas.
now i would say it was something i put on but it did it before i changed the fuel filter. banks says it sounds like i knocked something off when putting the exhaust on. but i checked it all and it looks good to me. the thing wouldnt pwer brake before the mods i did, but now it will smoke them no problem boost goes 15-20. pyro temp goes around 300-600 depending how long i keep into it.
sorry it was soooo long but wanted to give the whole story. please any idea or advise would be greatly appreciated. it is a really nice truck and would like to keep it going as long as possible. thanks guys.
