So its a diesel? You said injector pump.

Yes its a diesel, And no it wasn't the injector pump causing the problem,

I didn't say it was the injector pump. I was commenting on that's what you said and was clarifying that it was indeed a diesel. Have you tried unhooking the batteries for about 5-10 minutes? Had a 6.5 liter back in the day that would be running fine then all of a sudden just drop down to an idle. No throttle response at all. Pulled off to the side of the road and put in park, still no throttle just idle. Unhooked the batteries for 5-10 minutes. Cranked her up never had a problem again.
