OK Yall have me nervous.


Last night I was sitting at a redlight waiting for the green. As soon as the green turned I hit the go peddle.


NOTHIN! The truck stalled just like I had shut off the switch. I shifted to neutral and she fired up. I was on my way. I noticed some smoke in the headlights of the car behind me. It was dark so I wasn't sure just how much smoke there was..just seemed more than normal.


After a night of nightmares about Campfire Rick and all the other guys with injector problems I go out this morning to fire her up..


She fired up pretty good. Although I did think it took just a little longer for her to light off than normal.


25 miles later I am at work and shut her down. The engine shut down HARD..hard enough to shake the whole truck. I fired her back up let her idle for a minute and shut down again..Same thing Hard shut down.


Anyone ever seen this? Could these be symptoms of future problems?


Am I just paranoid?


Thanks for listening..


Mike

Loss of prime? Air leak in fuel system? How old is the filter? Maybe a load of bad "dirty or watery" fuel?

The filter has 6k on it. I will be replacing very soon.


No ses lights have been thrown. I may just be getting paranoid. I just filled up with fuel from a very busy truck stop. So I am pretty sure the fuel was ok..never know.


If it loss prime would I not of had to pump it? Maybe just an air bubble.
