Detroit 6.5 turbo diesel motor intermitently dies while driving. Usually sets for a few minutes starts and runs fine for days. Acts like it is starving for fuel. Replaced much of fuel system and this has not cured problem.

I had the same problem and it turned out to be a bad Fuel Injector Drive Module. Its a real common problem for diesels. Especially the Detroit 6.5. Its a little black plastic box mounted to the side of the fuel injector pump. The engine heat gets to it and "fries" all of the electronics inside of it. Since that happens, once the engine heats it up it begins to cut out and it seems that you are stalling because you are low on fuel and it will eventually die. If I let it sit for a few minutes then I can start it back up and drive it for a little while longer before it does it again. The part is around $230 for a reman. and a new one could be as much as $700. I actually got a relocation harness for mine and fixed it onto the core support with a radiated aluminum mount to keep the heat off of it. Not the cheapest fix but its said to last A LOT longer that way.

Sounds like fuel filter/water seperator clogged.

If the engine overheated then the antifreeze may be getting into the engine, indicating a cracked head or block. check for water in oil via dipstick. .

Check how long it runs for after switching off as there may be a delay in the system that keeps the motor running until the turbo slows and cools down then shuts off. If it has it will be about 2-3 minutes. Another reason that diesels keep running is that there is oil getting into the air inlet side of the turbo from a failed seal and this acts as fuel going into the cylinder and as diesels do not need ignition spark they will keep running. have it checked out by a specialist who medals in turbo repair and sales.

Try blowing out your Airlines with a air compressor just disconnected the linesshit from the fuel pump and from the injection port and just blow it out start with low pressure and slowly work your way up. If that doesn't help you most likely have a leaky injector
