Question about 1993 Ford F350
I have a hard starting ford diesel with the naturally aspirated 7.3L. I replaced the controller on the back of the block and all the glowplugs that were not working. Even plugged in with a block heater,pan heater it really does not want to start, even at temps around +20F. The truck only has 137K miles. I have an old 6.9 Diesel with 265K that still starts like a dream. Any ideas on what else it could be?
I have a 1994 450 super duty dump truck. and it wont start unless it is very warm out! I am think it is either the glow plug relay or the glow plus it self. I need to know how you check both to see witch one is the problem? And where and how do you find the glow plugs in the truck. Thanks

HAd the same problem turned out to be the fuel tank selector vlv not sealing off m/t tank on return line so when truck sat cold fuel would drain off injectors making me reprime injectors (airbound)
found this by dumb luck I got a hole punched in front tank (muddin )so I removed it and ran off back tank I observed fuel draining out unhooked return line next morning
replaced valve (and tank) problem went away
Disected old vlv (broken O-Ring)
by the way quick way to ck glow plugs ,What's your voltmeter on your dash doing when wait to start just goes out -If it's bouncing There workin
