The truck would turn over. Heres a list of what I have already done to it and would welcome any suggestions. Will turn over but will not start. It started up after the engine cleared itself from all the build up of fuel from trying and trying to start it. If so, there is no way for him to check it.
New glow plug celenoid and changed all fuses. Here's how: When you replaced fuses, are you sure they were replaced in the correct slots? New oil filter, oil and new anti-freeze. Last wed I was on the interstate same place. Next step is checking glow plugs. Check the fuel filter housing for fuel and post back. These are my only wheels, any ideas as to what to check next? Consider, too, that an intermittent fault in the wiring to the shut-down solenoid could be the source of the problem; doesn't hurt to go over the wiring harness and the connections to be sure that aren't loose or dirty. This is fine just throw away the old cap.
Also, my husband just informed me that when the mechanic got it to start with kerosene it was a couple of months ago and it will not start now at all. If it is an automatic tranny, one of the transmission gaskets rubs against the axle I believe and constantly wears. He took out the new cam sensor and exchanged it for another new one just in case, but it still will not start. The pump is what makes the fuel injectors activate. He has talked to several Ford Diesel mechanics who don't seem to know anything about them or that they are even there. If the light does not light up check the 30 amp fuse under the steering wheel.
Find the fatter part of the outer line on the top of the filter housing and hit the screwdriver in a counter clockwise rotation. Have any of you had this issue with your Ford Power Stroke diesel engines? High Pressure Oil Pump exchanged with known used good pump. I saw my job site to my right. It will give you details on shutting off the fuel pressure on the right passenger inside well under the lining I had no trouble disconnecting the front clamp, … but the back clamp requires a special ford tool, costs a few dollars at any parts store.

. Some back story on my truck though is that it got struck by lightning a few months ago. As I'm driving, sometimes the engine will cut out for a tiny split second. And cranked it over about 20 times or so. It wouldn't start, but occationally after it'd sit for several hours, it's start and run for a few seconds then die. So I went back to my customer's truck and pulled the computer to find that it had that loose aftermarket chip problem. Place batteries on charger and ensure they are fully charged.
The worse the truck ran. I wish my mechanic had a computer - ha ha. When you run a vehicle below a quarter of tank that has an electric fuel puel pump you can burn up the fuel pump. If there is fuel, just keep cranking. Typically, failur to idle down on computer controlled engine is an indication that the computer doesn't know the engine has warmed up. The hike out was fun. Made sure I am running off of the proper tank.
If the batteries are down a bit, there won't be enough power to turn the engine over fast enough to start. Anyone else that has had this happen. Glow plugs plus ether have destroyed engines. The exhaust does not smoke when cranking. And there you have it. Does the tach move while cranking? Any information would be appreciated. Still not wrapping my head around this issue.
. This is why vehicles have fuel gauges. Fuel filter change for E350 8cyl gas. Feb 19, 2014 what engine, what country? He has went over all the schematics on the truck and can find no problems. I ran out of fuel and can not restart my diesel engine after air got into the fuel system. I am still very new to this. And as I posted earlier, on a 7.
He charges the batteries before trying to start it to make sure they are always up. Note that for some years, there are 2 sensor … s, the other is for the dash guage. First day on the project. So the fuel isn't feeding from or returning to either tank, and the gauge feed is not connected to either sender, so showing infinite resistance which pegs the needle past full. It happened every time I drove by. The battery cables and connections are all clean.
