7.3 litre torbo diesel won't start

Cuple of days ago my truck stalled for no apparent reason several times but started back up, called local Ford dealer who had me bring it in to change the cam position sensor (recall) truck started and I drove away, 20 minutes it stalled again and it hasn't started since. Changed the CPS again and it didn't help. Replaced 8 glow plugs and the connectors under rocker covers, changed fuel pump relay, checked all fuses and relaysand didn't find any bad, changed water seperator. 3 full days trying and this truck still won't start. Wait to start indicater light on dash does not light up when key is turned to the run position.

If possible can you pull codes? It sounds like it could be a bad Injector driver module. I have seen alot of these do the same thing. Only bad thing the module is very expensive.

2009 ford ranger 4 litre noise sounds like a diesel

It could be several things causing the rattling such as: low octane gas, timing off, or a bad bearing in the lower half of the motor. I'd start with changing my gas to a premium grade and go from there.

95 Ford Taurus SHO 3.2 stalls randomly

On one of the occasions when it won't start back up, someone will need to figure out if you have lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to be able to troubleshoot the problem.

Engine error code P03000

P0300 is a general code for "multiple engine missfires". This can be caused by several things. Since it is stalling and "dieseling" (noisy engine) after you come to a stop it sounds like the ignition system is shutting down for some reason. (dieseling requires fuel but not spark) Have shop check for cam and crank sensers, coil pack, and PCM. If he gets a P0000 code ever it will need a PCM and reprogram. It can be a bunchof other items as well but this is the most likely path I would take.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Stalls out,engine quits running

since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.
