Question about 1996 Ford F250 Crew Cab
Sounds like more than one problem but the fan belt needs to be delt with first. Sounds like the battery is too low as it's not being chaged well enough due to the slipping belt. Belts last about three yerars and the factory belts a litle longer but not over 80 thousand miles they can look good and be bad gates belt and rubber company makes a nice gauge that sets in the grooves of the belt and yu can see hoe much is worn Being your slipping you knoe your bad. The low battery with other loads on will deprive the fuel pump or the ightion of the nessary power to do their jobs and the vehical will stall. You can charge the battery with a battrery charger overnight and drive it the next day and if the problem stays gone till the battery goes back down you know I'm right You can test the charging system with a volt meter and even the dash gauge can be right as low is low. 14.5 volts at idel with everything on or thebelt the altenator and or the battery are all bad and noew you.ve been starting the car with a low battery the starter and the fuel pump are likly damaged too. so start with the battry and charge it and put on the new belt and try charging then replace the battery as the low voltage can fail the fuerl pump and the ightion and even the conputer you might have to ( wisper down the lane) fixing this problem.

Can be caused by the fuel filter and sounds like the belt for the alternator needs to be tighter.
