Question about 2001 Ford F350 Super Duty SuperCab

1 Answer

2001 ford F350 7.3 liter diesil, engine shuts down.

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.

    As it turns out, I never received the recall notification on the cam sensor. Ford offered no explaination as to why. I'm just glad that I was not pulling a trailer with 6 horses in it when it failed. The truck is running fine now. Thanks for your help.

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.

Runs good shut off for a few minutes restart runs terrible engine spits and sputters


A bad fuel pump may cause a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9l to run for a few minutes and just shut off without sputtering. It can also be that the fuel pressure regulator (on top of fuel pump assembly) is stopped up. Dodge Ram trucks have been named Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year three times.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Engine starts and runs for a minute or so starts to sputter then shuts off. will restart, sputtering and shuts after a few minutes. code shows iat sensor, where is it located on the 2003 ford taurus


IAT sensor is the Intake Air Sensor.. It could be temperature or amount and as the engine is stalling, I would suspect that the sensor is not measuring the amount of airflow correctly..Substitute a known good unit as these sensors are not a repairable item..

2001 ford windstar code P0340 cam shaft sensor malfunction


You most likely have a 3.8 liter motor. You need to have a obd-2 diagnostic performed. Pep boys, Autozone, Aamco etc. can do this. (Ford also, but costly). If cam sensor failing, code will be stored in e.c.m, and data stream will prove out. The cam sensor failure is common on fords and they are usally available aftermarket (save a few dollars over O.E.M.) . If there is another problem, the diagnostic will help determine. Windstars are also prone to fuel pump failures and ignition switch problems.

Engine dying


it sounds like the cam sensor (also called "crank sensor") needs to be replaced. Mine has gone out twice &i t's common. In fact, Ford has a recall on this item. To do it yourself, it costs about $30 at a parts store & takes about 15 minutes to replace. Very easy!
