Tip & How-To about 1997 Ford F350 Crew Cab
If your getting hard or no starts in the winter/cold temps cycle the glow plugs 2-3 times. They are programmed to cycle up to 120 seconds or 2 minutes which in some cases isn't enough. Turn the key to ignition (not start) and allow the plugs to heat for about 90 seconds then back off again. Do this 2-3 times and your diesel should fire up. If extremely cold plug it in for an hour which should be enough to assist in starting.
