Question about 2001 Ford F350 Super Duty SuperCab
The engine starts easily, but will cut off after about 3 minutes of run time. No sputtering, just shuts off as though you had turned it off with the key. No water found in the fuel, and the fuel filter was changed as a precaution. The service engine light remains on now, but no warning light was offered prior to this problem. Is it a sensor, or something to do with the powertrain control module perhaps? We did receive some heavy rain prior to this problem, but the truck was not driven at the time.
These things had serious problems with crank sensors. There was even a recall on them. If you can get ahold of code reader and check it and it has any type of crank or cam sensor code replace it. Ford now sells them for under 50 bucks. If you slide under the vehicle and look toward the pass side of motor right above the crankshaft dampner on front of motor you will see a sensor that has a metal bale on it and one 10mm size screw holds it in. Remove the connector, take the 10mm bolt loose with a 10mm 6point socket so it dont strip. Then spray some penetrating oil on it. Grab some channel lock pliers and work it back and forth till it comes out. Reverse to install be sure lube the oring with oil before installation. We keep cranks sensors in stock now.
