2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 7.3L Stall VIN: 1FTNW21FX2
Thanks for the help. The IPR solenoid nut had fell off & sliding back when accelerating forward, causing truck to stall. Kind of wierd that it would stall on slightest foward motion.
2004 Ford F-150 XL 4.6L Poor Idle Quality, Misfire VIN: 2FTRX18W34
We believe the problem is internal even though we had no cylinder leakage. The customer (City Parks Dept) did not authorize any further work since they are laying off workers and don't need the truck for now. Trouble codes: P0300 (random misfire), P0302 (cylinder 2 misfire), P0316 (misfire detected on startup).
2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty XL 6.0L No Start VIN: 1FTSX31P74
I would like to thank everyone that responded. We installed a FICM and reprogrammed to fix the problem. Almost all of the replys had mentioned this as possible cause. What threw us for a loop was when we checked the voltage during cranking it would show 48 v... Trouble codes: P0408, P0488, P1334.
