Truck died, fuel pump?
Made a turn onto a 45mph road near my house, stomped on the pedal, accelerated briskely, then everything went black, the SES light came on for a second, then went out.
Coasted to side of the road, had truck towed to mechanic. He replaced the CPS, but it didn't seem to help, as it seems like it wants to start, but is starved for fuel.
So he replaced the fuel filter, and checked the pump, and the output PSI on the frame-mounted pump is only 60 psi.
Truck was running fine before, never had a problem with it.
I'm still suspicious that the CPS is broke, or something is worng with it, but he says the manual says fuel pressure is supposed to be 90+lb's.
2001 F350, 7.3, crew-cab, 4x4.
If it was fuel, I would've guessed more sputter and popping, this just died instantly.
Any thoughts on other things to check? He did say he noticed what he thought was some brass in the filter when he cut it apart.
