It's can be difficult to figure these things out sometimes. I looked up your rpoblem in my Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual to see if it had anything. This is what it has to say, I've listed them in the same order as they did for a surging engine under load (driving).
1. Torque converter clutch engages too soon
2.Retarded timing
3.Restricted fuel filter
4. Injection pump housing pressure too high (obstruction in fuel return line)
5. Insufficient injector line volumn
6. Insufficient injector nozzle opening pressure
Hope there is something in here to help you. This book covers the Ford 6.9 and 7.3 in excellent detail if that's what you have. The symptoms apply to any diesel not just these 2 engines. Hope this helps.

probably cause by the a/c cutting in and out or running at idle . Fit an idle compensator to the system throttle or raise the idle speed 300rpm.

Reduced Engine Power light, rough idle


Hello TMAF...

TRIED most of that TOO...

Finally my codes... said the OXYGEN SENSORS were complaining... OBD... DTC
(on-board-diagnostic... DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES)

So... of course I changed the... OXYGEN SENSORS.

The "NEW" OXYGEN SENSORS complained just as well...

I have subsequently learned the "SENSORS" are
just doing their job...

In my case reporting on a collapsed catalytic converter.
(muffler is actually a MORE common blockage).

A little hunting around... like Auto-Zone ... Napa auto...
Pep-boys... O'Reilly Auto Parts... even MIDAS might
yield FREE READINGs... (check around).

Just remember to wear your best SALES RESISTANCE...

and look up you prices on ROCKAUTO...
before you go... Hope this helps.

(Unless FREE, I'd make a SPECIAL note (YELP) on
that "shop"... THEY ARE CLOWNS...!!
(in my humble opinion... not MECHANICS)).

Ok here we go again 2000 buick lesabre . driving down road service engine light comes shortly after car stops dead. wait a few minutes usually starts back up light might go out get home fine. everyone is...


What you need to do is have the code checked for the service engine soon light.This will help in diagnosing what could be causing the vehicle to stop dead.By this I am assuming you mean it will stall.Auto Zone and some other parts stores will check the code for you for free.But the diagnosing will still need to be done to see what is causing the light to come on and make the car stall.Sometimes you may need a scan tool and a multi meter to help find the problem.Which means you may have to go to a repair shop.Hope this has helped you.Good luck.

2004 kia optima stalled while driving down the road after 15min or so it willstart backup


if check engine light comes on, get it scanned. you can get it scanned at auto-zone for free. as long as the check engine light is on. but it sounds like a bad crank sensor! that is the way the sensor is. it will die out and about 15 or 20 minutes it will restart. get it scanned. good-day! it controls the timing of engine.

I have a 2000 ford expedition w/ 4.6 l, engine will start but will not idle.I have to press on gas pedal to keep engine from dying also seems to be surging at 500 rpm.there is no misfire and runs smoothely...


The TPS sensor (or Throttle Position Sensor) is bad locate it and replace, it is located where the rubber air intake hose meets the intake manual, look for a wireand plug, also to make sure it is this sensor bring the truck to an Auto Zone and have them read any stored trouble codes for free this should confirm the faulty TPS.

2000 f-250 running rough, overdrive light flashing


Get the codes that were saved when the "engine light" came on and post them here. (You can get them retrieved for free from Auto Zone).

I'm going to take real *wild* guess that somehow that rough spot you hit actually impacted the oxygen sensor and disconnected it or damaged it.
