Sounds like you got water in you fuel. Trying and additive to your fuel should help the motor run better.

Hi mate
In is possable you have a faulty coolant temp sensor.
This could be confirmed by having a diagnosis check done at a garage.
It might have 2 sensors fitted so if it needs them make sure you replace the right one

SOURCE: 99 Ford F350 Powerstroke diesel; misfire code; loss of power

The first thing i would check is the Glow Plug Relay. Depending on your engine there should be (2 solenoids, or just one) sitting on the top front a little to the right of center. (right bank of engine that is) If you have 2 of them one should be smaller and it is the one furthest to the rear of the engine. It controls power to your glow plugs for cold start up. When you turn the key to the on position the 2 larger wires should both have power. When the ignition is off only one wire should have power. Check this if you do both these tests and only one wire has power with key on or off then you need to make sure that the key switch is sending power to the solenoid. Do this by checking the smaller wire with key off. It should not have power and then with key on it should have power. If this is good and test one is bad then the relay is bad. Note This is not true for the larger realy that sits furthest foward on the engine. The bigger one. This test will not work for it but it controls your intake heater. On another note: This is a timed circut and will "kick out" after about 1-2 minutes. In otherwords it does not stay on all the time that key switch is on it will for for about 1-2 minutes then shut off! Next would be your injectors are getting weak or bad and even your HPOP could be getting weak. or glow plugs in engine are out, In otherwords there are alot of possibilities causing your problems If you are getting a misfire code for your injectors then you may have some weak or inop injectors. Any way this will give you a pretty easy test for the most common failure which is the Glow plug relay. About 35-40 bucks at your local auto parts house.

Ford escort 1.8 diesel ran dry. Put in diesel tow it to start drive 120 km. Switch of next morning just turn over not starting. When tow it starts and drive well. Standing overnight no start


sounds like you might have air getting into the fuel system. Or a fuel check valve leaking, letting the pressure escape. Make sure filters are full.

Hey Stephan P. and others... - 1994 Ford F-250, Turbo Diesel, pre Power Stroke - hard to start, maybe a minute or more?


Does it have dual batteries? A friend of mine threw 3k$ at his, then found out one of the batteries were low or had a bad cell. It was turning over for a long time, and we never suspected them being at fault. Like 2 750 or 850 CCA batteries. Have yours tested at a parts store to rule them out.

I have a 2001 F350 diesel 7.3L crew cab. Since the cold night, I’ve been using my plug-in heater at. In the mornings it starts fine. But after 8hours of work (where I can’t plug the heater in), I have to...


very normal with a 7.3 to be hard starting at lower temps the only thing i can recommend is getting a remote start with cold start where it starts it every 2 hours and runs it for 10 mins other than that you need to plug it in

01 5.9 dodge diesel slow to start in morning. Starts fine rest of day Why


Check standing battery voltage after sitting overnight. Battery may not be in very good shape, after starting, it will develop a surface charge that helps during subsequent starts. A starter that is drawing too much amperage can also cause this. Also make sure glow plugs are good.
