1995 4700 International LP with 7.3
I lost a drive shaft on the way home with a heavy load. I pulled over and the engine died. It was below zero out so I restarted the engine to run the heater and after one minute it died again. This has repeated several times. It will only run for one minute then the engine dies. After further inspection the drive shaft had to rn the exhaust off of the engine. There's about 3 ft of pipe running from the turbo to the break. The muffler is hanging loose and separate.
Is there any correlation to a drive shaft failing, and engine not running?

If the driveshaft crushed the exhaust, backpressure would build up and eventually choke the engine off.

Does it sputter and die or shut down like you turned the key off?
