The stupid truck died on me this morning. Last week it was the battery, this week I don't know yet.
It was plugged in all last night, and started perfect this morning.
I high-idled for a minute or two, then drove off. About 1/2 mile down the road I pull up the the stoplight and it idles rough.
Really shaking the truck, like cylinders missing. All gauges seemed normal. Tried to pull away from the stop and it just wouldn't hardly move. Finally got through the corner and started up a little incline and it was loosing power fast. The miss was getting worse, so I flipped over to the stock program. That was the wrong thing to do. It just died.
Thank God a coworker was right behind me. Ironic part is that he is the team leader for the engine group. He (SD
V10) pulled me off the road and gave me a ride to work.
GGGRRRRR. I think it was a mistake to take out the fuel heater this spring. Ambient was about 19 deg F, haven't gotten fuel in 2 weeks.
More of a rant than anything. I'm just mad.
I'm gonna start with a fuel filter (I need to change it soon anyway), enough Diesel 911 to make sure it never does this again, and a fuel filter heater. Then hope it's not a CPS
Oh, and by the way, it's supposed to be cold and possibility of snow this evening/night.
Anyone want on OBS
