Default Power stroke issues!!

its a 95 7.3 power stroke started up yesterday I made it 3 house's and then check engine light came on and started running like shit. made back to my drive barley.

Anyways did the basics for cold weather issues with diesels, thought maybe the fuel jelled so put 911 in fuel filter housing, put new filter in put 911 in tank, still runs like shit and check engine light is still on. Truck will still start runs good for about 8 seconds then engine light comes on again and runs like shit and I mean SHIT. I dont think the fuel ever jelled on me but not sure, becasue I still have good fule pressure at the pressure check valve by the filter housing, so I know its still getting fuel, maybe not the correct pressure not sure.
So on to the next issue, So I went and bought a scanner for the truck to see if it would pick upsome codes and low and be hold I can find the Self Test plug anywhere on this truck???? I have looked everywhere for it and everything I have look up says it should be on the driver fender inside engine compartment....... A no gooooo????

Here is a link with the area it should be but its not.

I'll look on my '95 tonight if you still need the location. The 2 main suspects that I have for the running issue is the IPR or the CPS. How often do you change your oil?

I have a 94 F350. The diagnostic connector is on the driver's side fender near the hinge. It should be attached directly to the fender. If you can't find the connector there, it may be OBDII. If that's the case, it will be located under the drivers side of the dash. The old school ALDL and the OBDII connector look completely different so make sure you know what you are looking for.

Is the 95 a DI? Sounds like a fried injector harness under the valve cover.

That was my issue a month ago..... 1 whole back wasn't getting fuel or GP- could only get about 15 MPH out of it trying to limp it back home.

A '95 Powerstroke would be DI. I forgot that it may be OBDII. My dad never changes his oil (think 14,000 miles on 10-30 Rotella-T with towing). His truck ate the IPR with 80,000 on it. When that went the truck woudl run fine and then act as you were describing. The wiring harness under the valve cover is a usual suspect as well.

Oh, and be subjected to Dodge's Legendary resistance to corrosion. Actually, France put up more resistance to WWII invasion than a Dodge pickup does to rusting out.

Please, go back to the childrens' table while the adults talk about grown-up matters.

x2. I would check under the dash. For some reason I want to say that truck has an OBDII port. If it does, there will be a little plastic cover over the connector. Sometimes it's hard to spot if you don't know what you're exactly looking for.
