Question about 1992 Ford F350
I have a 92 F350 with about 309 K miles. Its always been a little hard to start when below 50 degrees or so but Id plug in the block heater and be fine. Now it can sit for 1 hour in 70 degree weather and wear down the battery trying to start it if its not plugged in. When warm or plugged in it always fires up but hesitantly at times. What could be the problem other than glow plugs? Thanks. Dusty
Are you using cold temperature engine oil!
if not, try changing oil for cold temperature!
hard starting happens due to the cold temperature, air pressure is low during this season so compression inside the engine is low resulting to hard starting!
make sure that all your glow plugs are working.
