Question about Cars & Trucks
Spring and summer time warmer temps truck starts easily but cold winter days does not start i also have circulating heater and block heater plugged in if i put a heater in front under truck and warm up engine compartment it will start.im very frustrated and love my truck please lrt me know if you have a sullution thaks Kristian .firstname.lastname@example.org
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

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

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.
