Question about 2000 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cabs

2 Answers

Starting? When I go out in the morning or when the truck has set for a while it is hard to get started. It sounds like the battery is low or the starter is dragging? I turn it over and then wait ~5 seconds and do that again. After the 3rd or 4th try it starts. Each time I turn it over it turns easier. The truck is a 2000 F-250 SD diesel 7.3 with a standard transmission.

It could possibly be back injectors because it is a long too much fuel to leak into cylinders and when you try to fire the motor the fuel that is in the cylinder is causing it hydrolockwhich could seem like you had a bad battery because it is taking so much effort to crank the motor pass this hydrolock cylinder

Crank sensor


During the night or after the car sets for a while. The battery voltage will drop from the normal 13.6 to 13.8 volts when running and Charging, to between 12.3 to 12.6 volts. If the Crank Sensor is going bad, it may not operate correctly with the lower voltage. Check your Battery Voltage in the morning with a Volt Meter. If the Battery Voltage is lower than about 12.3 to 12.5 volts. You may need a new battery. Try leaving the battery on a low current Battery Maintainer overnight and see if it starts in the morning. I have seen many cars that shut down with Low Battery Voltage. Darn these New Fangled Cars and their Computers! FYI, we have never seen a Crank Sensor fail in this manner..... Check the RESTING Battery Voltage.

Hi, My 2006 ford focus wouldn't start this morning. After starting it first time with jump leads I drove it for 20 minutes before stopping for 1 minute. When I tried to start it again I got nothing but a...


The clicking sound is the starter motor trying to engage, but does not engage because of low electrical current. Knowing that you started your motor with jump leads this morning indicates that your car's battery needs charging/replacement.
Hope this helps.

1. I have a Toyota AE91 Sprinter SE 1989 5E engine. Even driving at 80kph it DOES NOT engage the overdrive. What could be the problem. 2. In the morning it gets hard start, but starts OK for the rest...


The starting issue could be due to a bad battery. Hard starting in the morning is usually associated with the cold. Low temperatures, create hard starting/cranking for your battery.
You will see a CCA rating on your battery, in my 4wd it is 600CCA that means it has 600 Cold Cranking Amps. That means it is the amount of current my battery can provide at O deg F. Car manufacturers only use cheap standard duty batteries.

If it is a 4 speed automatic with a power/ecconomy button it won't engage overdrive. You put it in ecconomy for normal driving and power for towing.

Won't start after battery died and recharged


Sounds like low voltage.
Get a boost from another car with a good set of cables.
Once started check voltage with booster car disconnected.
Is it around 14 volts?
If so,the truck is charging, so it may be time for a new battery.

If the voltage is at 12 or lower while running the truck is not charging.
May be time for a new alternator.

The battery should have charged enough in 1 hour to start the truck.
You may need a battery and alternator.

My 94 honda civic morning hard start,what is the possible problem.


The mechanic should check on the battery if low in electricity then charge .There are some cases that some times when a car is hard to start the cost of the problem is the battery . If still wont start then you'll have to choke and it will run .

Hard starts in the morning even though replaced most parts


Check the power to the cold start injector. (it's only going to have fire for a few sec. after the key is turned on). If the fire is good, replace the cold start injector. This injector is activated for a few seconds when the engen temp is low to add a little fuel lower down in the intake and closer to the pistons.

Battery not charging in Mazda Millenia year 2000


Sounds like a similar problem I had. I had a bad battery. Jumping the car and charger did not help. All instruments work as I am guessing the battery had enough juice to light those but not enough to start car. Either bad battery or alternator. I changed out the battery and everything was fine. If you have an aftermarket stereo or amp, make sure they are setup right. The amp may be drawing power even if radio and car is off which may attribute to low start power (including above suggestions).
