Customer Question

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

I am here and just reading through your post now, just a sec.

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.

Expert:  John Vieira replied 1 year ago.

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.
