problem #1

Mar 012007

E-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,446 miles
The truck shuts off. It sometimes is intermittent (runs fine at cruise, but wont idle) or it could be absolute. (truck just up and died! no reason!) there is no timeline, no precursor, no warning. I can drive for 200 miles, then it happens, or 1 to 7 miles. The failure is a stall. Engine light comes on, if a stall comes and doesn't shut down the truck, (usually because the RPM's are being revved up.) and is restarted, the engine light will no longer be on. The engine will restart, or not restart, but eventually it will restart. Then failure again. It started March 1 and continues. All else appears to be functioning fine. I believe it is the camshaft position sensor. I have not yet verified this with a mechanic, but if this is the problem a Ford part will be bought and it will be replaced.
