Thanks for your replies. I pulled the fuel filter off and looked inside where the water senser goes into it and saw it was full of sediment and had some jell looking stuff in it?? Anyway replaced the filter and the truck runs like new. Trouble codes: P2047 (fuel rail pressure malfunction maximum fuel pressure exceeded), P2051 (fuel rail pressure malfunction maximum fuel pressure exceeded).
