I don't know if this is a help or not, but my 2006 F350 had the same problem, and finally would not start at all. Towed to a Ford dealer, and they found the FCM (Fuel Control Module) was bad. Replaced it, and now it starts fine. Pretty costly, but at least is works. Good Luck

SOURCE: 2006 Ford F-350 6.0 power stroke will not start

This really is the sign of a dying battery - one that may not be getting any charge to replace it. I would disconnect the +ve lead and put battery on charge for at least 24hrs (with an intelligent charger). Then check Alternator for correct output when running. Also check for current drain when turned off. A high drain may indicate a blown diode in the alternator - the rectifier block is usually replacable without scrapping the whole unit.

SOURCE: 1996 Ford Ranger won't start

I had the same problem , and if you read your book, it could be the fuel pump shut off switch, mine was bad and went from on to off position, its usually under the passenger side of the dash, look underneath at the "top" of the carpet, and you'll see a little red switch, check to see if the thing is plugged in , if it is , check to see if the switch is all the way down. i had to get a new one , sombody must have kicked mine and made it broken, but i got a new one and it worked fine

This is very complex system. Best to have it checked by qualified diesel mechanic who has the proper equipment to check out all the systems, that could be related to the problem you are having. Just to start throwing parts at it can become very expensive very fast

SOURCE: MY F250 POWER STROKE QUITE RUNNING IT WONT START

The 7.3 power stroke is not tha bad sheesh its actually pretty simple ok let me ask some questions here ok lets start simple when cranking does the needle on the tach move to approx. 5-600 ? if not more than likely its a cam sensor in which case there is actually a recall from ford they will fix it free.... yes I said free :) if not my second guess would be the Idm they were notorious for getting moisture in them btw IDM stands for injector driver module and you can find a good reman unit online for 200 "use google" if you have a friend with a high end scanner hook up and watch engine rpm there and also do a "buzz test" no buzz = idm fail another easy thing to do is open the drain on the fuel filter bowl and turn the key on and crank for 1 sec is there fuel shooting out ? if there isnt check fuel pump well that about covers it good luck please let us know whats up :)

SOURCE: 2006 Ford F350 Power Stroke 6.0 - Only will start when it is cold

make sure there is no fuel leak anywhere, replace the return line on the injector pump with a clear line and check for any air bubbles in the system, also make sure the oil level is ok

2006 crv low power will not keep running


Sounds like you have a cat converter plugged up. Too much engine back pressure will result in low power and eventual shutdown of engine, and hard restart. If after setting awhile it will it will restart further indicates a bad converter and will have to be replaced.

the D4D ENGINE on Toyota Landcruiser has electronic injectors common rail engine and there is the possibility for gummed injectors and also but quality of diesel fuel in tank. Change the fuel and filter,and also a fuel treatment additive to be use as soon as started. and remember for good also treatment with cleaning use 250ml 2-stroke oil in a tank full of fuel and carry on with this for a month filling. Tank full to empty position and then use 2-stroke every time

I have a 2005 Ford F350 6.0 Diesel and It wont start after the motor gets warm. It also starts rough when cold. When it is running it runs great. Any help would be appreciated.


I had this same issue and luckily my F350 2006 was still under warranty. Basically there is a high pressure oil system that has a tendency to leak internally. You won't see any oil leak. When cold the oil has enough viscosity to keep the pressure sensor from not allowing the engine to start. When the engine is warm the system doesn't reach required pressure to allow the engine to start. In short it's a Ford dealer repair. Good luck.

the power steering pump also is connected to the brake booster and both take vaccum this is a verry common problem and sucks, the only way to fix this is to get a new power steering pump, just to have it happen again in a few years.

Ford F-350 Power stroke 6.0 L difficult to start


on both a 7.3l and 6.0l oil pressure is everything. Both engines use two oil pumps one for lubrication and one to fire the injectors. if your high pressure oil pump (inj pump) is weak it will take a long time for the truck to start. In order for the ficm to fire the injectors it wants to see at least 250 - 400 psi of ICP pressure. you will need a scanner to determine your high oil pressure at crank. Let me know how you make out.
