2001 Int. 4700 w/ T444E dies while stopped in gear

I have a 2001 International with a T444E engine. Just the other day the fuel filter light came on so I changed it. When I changed it, I filled the resivor back up with diesel and secured the cap. There should not of been any air in the system.

The very next day the truck started dying at stop lights. It would start back up and run fine. I can let it run in park with no problems.

Does anybody have any sugestions? Should I crack the injectors anyways?

Souds like a problem with the oring on the cap. I would double check the roring and make sure it doesnt have a nick in it or a cut.

There's no bleeder for air in the injection system. Just drive it like you stole it for a while, and whatever air is in the system will soon purge thru the injectors. I doubt that your stalling problem is caused by air in the fuel system, but a check of the pressure delivered by the fuel pump might be in order just to be sure.

Your stalling problems may just be coincidental to your fuel filter change. It sounds like you may have a problem with the CPS (Camshaft Position Sensor), which is essential to keeping the engine running. It often cuts out intermittently. Ford has announced a recall of the CPS, having just recently come out with a new and improved (well, cheaper) CPS that's grey instead of black. I imagine that International has the same one available. Ford part number is F7TZ-12K073-B for about $20-30 (depending on how hungry the dealer is). Sorry, don't have the corresponding International #, but if you went in and asked them for the replacement for 1825899C93 (the old black one) they'd probably know what you're talking about.

Re: 2001 Int. 4700 w/ T444E dies while stopped in gear

Its mounted on the front timing cover on the pass side of the engine. It has a 2 wire plug going to it and is held in place by a 10mm bolt. Very easy to change and is most likely your problem. You can buy them from thepowerstrokeshop web site about as inexpensive as any place. It would not hurt to carry a spare.

I cant get my hand in there. Does the radiator and fan need to be removed?
