SOURCE: diesel ford will crank but wont start acts like

If you have the 6.0 ltr diesel, then check the bowl where the 2nd fuel filter is, see if there is fuel in the bowl, if not then either your fuel pump which is on the frame under the driver's side in the water seperator/ heater has gone bad, or your filters could be bad, or the fuse to the fuel pump or the pump shut off switch which is located on the side panel at your feet on the passengers side, there is a reset button, make sure it has not popped and press it down, hopefully this helps, I had the same prob.

SOURCE: Engine shut down while driving, now it won't start.

Check your oil level. If it is ok then a computer diagnostic scan should be done to have all the engine sensors tested and checked.

The only way air can get in the fuel line is if you have a hole in it! Problem of course is were? I would run the fuel line from back to front and back again. Look for any wet spot that you can find. You may even have to drop the tank to ba able to look on top. I would suspect the problem is in the line before the high preasure pump, being as you are pulling air into the system. I have seen leaky lines allow air in, but not let fuel out.

SOURCE: Ford f250 Truck 1987 460. Solenoid sticks once in

Most likely you need a new Ignition switch. The small "tickler" wires on your solenoid are staying on. You can disconnect the small wire from the Solenoid and then put a test light on it. Turn the Ignition to Start and see if the wire stays hot when you release the key.

Another problem you could have is the Starter has such a bad intermittent short in it, that it keeps the points welded together after the key is released from the Start position. You can get a starter Draw test done at some parts stores like Autozone or Oreillys to name a few, they do it free and on the truck.

Let me know the result please,

The only thing that keeps a diesel engine from running.. OTHER THAN A MECHANACAL PROBLEM.. is lack of fuel. Since it starts when you spray starting spray the engine probably does not have a mechanical problem 1. does the fuel solenoid open when you energize it?, is the fuel filter clogged?, is the lift pump working? Is there fuel in the tank? IF YOU HAVE RUN OUT OF FUEL YOU WILL NEED TO BLEED THE AIR OUT OF THE FUEL SYSTEM.

Diesel 6 0l

Every diesel has an electric solenoid that shuts the fuel off when you turn the key off. I suspect that is your problem but I don't know where it is exactly on a Ford. It should be mounted on or near the injector pump.

First thing to try with any diesel that won't start is to do a diesel system bleed. This one should be before the HP fuel rail type so start by bleeding the lift pump, then the fuel filters, then the main injector pump to lines to the injectors and lastly the injectors. Good luck.

Hi ,Ihave a diesel focus on a w plate, has a fly by wire bosche pump.does the fuel shut off solenoid click when ign is turned on? mine does not. I have diesel circulating through pump but not at injectors...

I think you are on the right track. The solenoid should make some kind of noise when engaged or shutt off. Be sure you have power at solenoid with key on and tap on it with something. If it dose not engage it probably is the solenoid. good luck

Have you checked for power on the fuel shut-off solenoid on the injection pump? There are two wires to the pump. One is the fuel shut-off the other is the cold advance. Both should be hot with the key on when the engine is cold. Do you hear the glow plug relay clicking when you turn the key on?

How to install fuel shutoff solenod in a 1987 7.3 int. engine and how works . i have already replaced switch and have power to it but dont know how it grounds, does the arm on the solenoid make the switch...

it is grounded threw the bolts that hold it in place. I believe you are talking about he diesel engine an the biggest issue this rig had was the fuel pump on the side of the block not the high fuel pressure pump you should pull the lower fuel pump off and check that it has vacuum and that it holds vacuum when you push the plunger down it should hold vacuum for a couple of minutes if not it has a bad check valve. the symptoms would be dieing out low or no power I know you did not ask for this information but you will need it to help solve the problem. when the fuel shutoff kicks in it shuts the fuel off when is off it is cut off. hope this helps.
