Engine Performance problem
2001 Ford F350 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 310000 miles
I have a 2001 F350 diesel with 310,000 km. The trans has been rebuilt. When driving the check engine light comes on and the engine looses power until you have to pull over and stop. I let the engine idle for a short time and it starts to run fine. I've had it to the Ford dealers to check for fault codes (4 times )and none are present. I've pulled the fuel tank and flushed it out as it had debris in it and change my fuel filter every 5000km. They checked the pump pressure and output and checks fine. This condition seems to happen only when climbing a steep hill or when pulling my trailer. If I slip the trans into neutral engine will run fine, put it back into gear and no power, seems like it is starving for fuel under load.
have the same problem?
