2003 E-450 6.8 V10 cuts off/stalls
Hi everyone, I don't own my truck, it's my work vehicle, but has been so good to me that it has converted me to Ford. I'm a mobile 18-wheeler trailer tech and put serious mileage on it on a weekly basis. My problem started when the faceplate of the A/C clutch was seemingly about to shatter (a piece of it was flapping around), so the company bought a new clutch to install. For access, I removed the air filter assembly, radiator fan and shroud, and belt. After a few hours of inventing new curse words, I had the clutch on and everything back together, started the truck and everything worked perfectly... Until 30 seconds later when it turned itself off. It fired right back up, but did it again. And then again. It finally got to a point where it would run at idle, but step on the pedal and try to maintain any steady RPM and it cuts off. If that wasn't bad enough, the A/C clutch spins but doesn't work (even the blower motor quit working). What have I done?? I'm almost positive everything went back the way it should have! The old clutch was so bad off that the bearings were destroyed, could the entire compressor be to blame somehow? I desperately have to get this truck back on the road ASAP. Any help very greatly appreciated!
