new to this forum, and first time having issues with one of my diesels. It's a 97 F250 PSD
. Pretty much stock except exhaust and intake. Previous owner told me he changed the IDM
at one point. It looks pretty new.
Several weeks ago I was driving my truck pretty lightly. Came to a stop sign and the motor seemed like it wanted to die. I pressed the pedal and it picked right back up. Then a minute later when letting off the accelerator it died. It would crank but not start. I also noticed no smoke coming from the pipe at the time.
after some research, I changed the CPS
and it fire right up and got me home.
Next day, I drove it hard on the highway for 30 min or so. as soon as I left off the pedal it died. Couldn't get it to start for the life of me. Had to get it towed to a shop. Tow truck driver called me and said he drove it right off the flat bed, which means it started for him after cooling for 1 hour.
The shop told me I needed a new HPOP
, the old one wasn't pushing enough oil. They also changed the injector o-rings, IPS, etc.
This should have fixed it. Nope, truck wanted to die whenever I let off the accelerator. I made it home somehow while keeping RPMs high to keep her running. The shop changed out the IPR
Today I parked at the gas station and kept her idling while I went in. As soon as I got in and put it in D and hit the accelerator, she died again. This time I just let her cool for 10 min and she fired right back up.
Everything I've read sounds like an IPR
, but it was changed as part of the HPOP
replacement, then again a 2nd time.
I am pulling my hair out on this thing! Supposedly all injectors passed the tests. I don't know what else it could be.
I am in Virginia - its been pretty cool here every time it has happened
