Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Ford F250 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 222, 40 miles

my 7.3 diesel will start, and run about 5- 10 min. Then dies like someone turned the key off. If I wait a couple of min. And start it again, it will run only about 1 min. And stop again. I changed the fuel filter and oil. No help.

Replace the fuel pump, and water seperator.

Other possibilities are the Injection pressure regulator, fuel heater, Injection control pressure sensor.

Other than the pump and water seperator, you may have to visit the Ford dealer
