Help! Stalls Out.

Hi guys,

I'm new to the forum, so maybe you've already answered this somewhere, but I've got a 1990 Ford F-350 with a 7.3 ltr diesel that stalls if I lift my foot rapidly from the accelerator. It will restart easily, and it doesn't make any funny noises, it just dies. It will idle, you just have to lift your foot slowly enough so that it doesn't die. I've had it recently serviced, new fuel filter, no obvious fuel or air leaks. Does anyone know what might be causing this?

How many miles on the the trans manual or auto.
Does it stall at corners if the clutch is disengaged?
What is your curb idle set at should be 650 manual in nuetral or auto in drive.
Better to use a diesel fuel additive with every fill than trans fluid..... Trans fluid is not a lubricant.

Hayes diesel treat, Stanadyne pro, Power Service(diesel) and there are many more.

If it has been sitting that long the old fuel may have bio matter in it......
