Question about 2000 Ford F350 Super Duty Super Cab
I have a 2006 F350, 6.0 Diesel that was starting rough and sometimes not at all just after I shut it off on a hot day. I was told to replace both fuel filters. After I replaced both filters and ensured that the engine filter had plenty of fuel and cycling the pump on a off a few times, it is now dying within a few minutes of driving it. Then it won't start again for a long while. I refilled the engine filter a couple more times just to make sure I did it right, but no change to the symptoms. Also, the fuel pump, which I think is just next to the lower filter (under driver door) seems to run for 20 seconds every time that I switch the key to "run". Not sure if that is a clue or not. What is wrong with my truck?
What your describeing sounds like a fuel pressure issue. The only way to confirm is to hook up a pressure gauge to verify. Then if the pressure is low you will need diagnostic procedures like the ones that can be had at mitchell1diy online. There are several seals within the system not to mention sensors. Not knowing what any of these read without a data scanner noone can accurately guess whats going on with your truck. Personally I would not touch this if your new diesels. This really needs to be put in the shop. Also if you have oil pressure issue the truck will also do this, Listening to someone recommned maybe this maybe that is only going to get expensive if you choose to just throw parts at this. You have already paid more for the parts you threw on than a diagnostic would run and you have taken a step backwards which really leaves one confused. But either way if you choose to work on your truck you need the sight I mentioned to proceed.
