Customer Question
Hello was trying to...

Hello was trying to just read all I could and not bother anyone I have a 93 f350 7.3 with 332,000 ***** ***** running great until last week. cold starts take a awhile but then its fine, but once going (driving) slow for light or turn and it just dies, then will start right back up. My first diesel, was going to try ignition switch and fuel filter first. Any ideas thanks in advance. ken forte

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Truck starts fine no check engine lights, all fluids changed, once in gear 5sp tranny, it just dies or stalls out when I come to stop or just turn, then I push In clutch and it fires back up.

Possibles: It could be sucking air.

It could be the injection pump actually being bad, which it could very well be.

Sucking air means to fix: you need to put a clear line in place of the fuel filter return hose and check for air bubbles in the system.

If there is no air in that return line, take the return fitting off of the fuel injection pump. Remove the straight adapter that is between the elbow and the pump get a white sheet of paper clean and tap the fitting on the paper looking for bits of metal. If there is bits of metal on the paper, then you need a new injection pump.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
