Question about 1996 Ford F250 Crew Cab
1999 F-250, oct,1998 build date7.3 litre will not start if outside temp is under 45 degrees or so, it will start however if i plug it in for about two hours depending on how cold it is outside. I have checked glow plug resistance and actually had to change 3 of them,and yes the relay is working correctly. I have changed crank position sensor, cooloant temp sensor, engine oil temp sensor, high pressure oil pressure sensor (regulator), and the thermostat. The fuel heater is good but I dont know if it is turning on, I do keep fresh oil and filters in the engine and just recently replaced both batteries, it cranks good starts good and runs good when its warm. It has 165000 miles But was rebuilt by ford dealer at 85000 miles under warranty due to low compression in two cylinders caused from what they called dusting (very fine dirt passing through air filter). They also replaced the turbo and the injectors in the same two cylinders. I do suspect another injector going bad because it does smoke and idles rough on start up unless it has already been warmed up or has been plugged in for a long time (over night). It has developed an exhaust leak right after the turbo but the cold starting problem existed long before the leak. IT JUST WONT START COLD, warm runs great
In cold tems you need to make sure that you use a block wormer it will help alot
