Is the glow plug timer opperating for long enough ? and do you wait for glow light to go out before starting? On real cold days there could be a problem with fuel waxing up in the lines, your heaters would compensate for this. some add a little kerrosene to the fuel. check with your fuel supplier. There is also a verry good Wynns product that lowers the freezing piont of the wax in deisel so that freezing is less likley to occour. hope this helps

SOURCE: engine block heater not working/truck wont start if cold

Hi bud876 did you get a faulty block heater? if the cord and block heater are new it should work when energized double check for power, as far as glow plugs do they cycle? is the glow plug relay working properly?you would be a lot better going with a circulating heater rather than a block heater,hope this helps good luck

SOURCE: Hard start condition and some times a no start

I have many fords in my fleet i have found let the glow plugs cycle about two or three time in a row before trying to start makes a big differance, they all start really hard. try that it might work better for you.

diesel engine have small starter helpers called glow plugs that heat the combustion air so that it can self ignite the diesel fuel
reasons for hard starting are
slow cranking speed---battery not charged enough or not big enough to do the job
injectors squirting and nit atomizing--- take the car to an accredited diesel pump/ injector repair shop for tip replacement and adjustment
the check engine light could be from faulty glow plugs
keep the fuel tank full ,especially in cold climate as there is hot return fuel from the injectors that causes condensation in the tank--water -- and that promotes the growth of a fungus which damages the pump and injectors
use diesel fuel condition on a regular basis to prevent that condition or keep the tank more that 3/4 full to stop condensation occuring

Will not start in cold weather. Starts great if temperature is above 20 degrees. New battery and no problem found by mechanic.


There is a 5th injector called the cold start injector, that is electrically controlled off the starter. You can easily unscrew it while still attached to hoses and wires, and watch it squirt. You can also verify it is getting voltage with a test light or meter. There is also a thermal timer for it that could be bad and preventing current from the starter.

Problem with cold starting Ford 7.3L Diesel at > freezing temps


most likely the relay. its located to the left of the fuel filter( looking at the motor from the front). my experience is that they only last about 50,000 miles. the part costs about $20 at an navistar dealer. remove the cowl over the filter, disconnect the batteries(so you don't short the new relay out if you cross the polarity with a wrench) ,remove the four wires from the ceramic relay, un-fasten the relay from the base. reverse the process with the new relay. CAUTION; do not over-tighten the nuts on the wire studs, you could crack the ceramic relay.(iv'e done it) . hope this helps
