About a month ago I was towing and at a stop light when the light turned green I gave it lite throttle and it died! I really did not expect it to restart but it did. Fast forward to today not towing pulling out of my daughters school it died on me twice but restarted both times?? 82k trouble free miles (except for that mega dollar leaking water pump)
The day before I was going to change the filter my truck would turn over but not fire. I have auto start and it has acted up before so I flipped the small switch under the dash to reset it no start. I have the Edge box puggedin under the hood and it has failed before also so I unplugged it, no start. I went to my shop to get some tools to change the fuel filter as suggested, I decided to try to start it, it started. I plugged the edge box back in and it started again no problem. so I changed the filter and it appeared to be aobut 90% dirty. If you forward your email address I have photos of the dirty 15k filter if you know how to post them?
My direct email is firstname.lastname@example.org. So far it has started with no problems, going on an 8 hour round trip tomorrow. We shall see.
Oh yeah by the way the link fo rthe fuel filter replacement was great!! Took aobut 20 min to change. I did not bend the a/c line but I had a helper pull gently on the intercooler line to get the filter to slide by, worked fine. Hope I cannot hurt this big line by doing it this way??
the plastic bag did the trick too!!
