6.0 Stalls when turning left, and cuts out over bumps
Our 2005 Ford Powerstroke E-360 6.0 family van recently started cutting out over bumps going down the freeway. It returns to idle for a second, and then runs again as normal. This only happens when there's a bump or series of bumps in the road. Numerous codes are on, including both the camshaft and crankshaft sensors, EGR, etc. It's all stock except for a tune. Turning left, it totally quits sometimes, especially if you turn left and hit a slight bump. Runs fine turning right. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
- just read posts on here 6-23-12 about shorting out of wiring in the steering column. Sorry i can't refer you directly to the thread or posts, but it was causing the truck to quit entirely, suddenly. I think the story was that a tech at a dealership found it or knew about it already when the poster had truck towed to dealer.
- I have noticed, after removing the air bag from steering wheel and modifying the wheel, that the key can be left in without the beeper going off, and the door won't stay locked-as if the key is in ignition when it is not, after working on the wheel. A short when turning the wheel sounds like a steering column wiring short, no?
AGE, not being sure who your Q. is directed at, I will answer. The work i was doing on my steering wheel was not electrical related at all. I loosened and peeled back the leather covering and another cover I had made and then sewed on. Then I took my die grinder to the flared ends of the overly large wheel spokes that are very uncomfortable to my hands, and which I could just barely reach my fingers around where the spokes meet the wheel rim. I cut away about 3/8" of material, both rubber and aluminum, from the corner of the spoke and rim. It is more comfortable, but still not like a good comfortable 3 or 4 spoke steering wheel should be, such as Ford has put on most of their vehicles.
