Check the valve cover gasket wires there is a chance after you did the glow plugs one or more of the wires is rubbing on the rockers and is shorting out

You may want to surf around on some of the powerstroke forums for detailed answers, but I know the powerstrokes use oil pressure to control the injectors so you may have some problems with the high pressure oil pump.
Again, it is just a guess. I just wanted to point you to some of the Ford Powerstroke forums which may be of much more help for you.
Good luck..

    I meant to say to do an internet search. I don't think you will get anywhere near the detail here that you will get on those forums.

Why dose my 2002 Volvo xc90 d5 not start in the mornings


I have similar problem different vehicle, my ignition was not connecting well and the glow plugs were not initially getting properly hot, not sure how to fix it/ I disconnected the battery entirely and unplugged what I could and switched # 1 for #3 plug and waited overnight and charged the battery out of the truck, next day put all back and attached battery and started right up right since , so try take out battery and charge better first.

Good god people!

Glow plugs means not gasoline being burned, you will truly ever find spark to be the problem; I will only credit one of the answer guys for even being awake and on point enough to have a clue, the answer involving the coolant temp is the right one, I however will suggest another angle on living with this symptom: spill about two tablespoons of gasoline onto a clean rag and hold that over the air intake, crank it it will start. This will not harm anything and will confirm you have a faulty glow plug timing issue, and for the love of sanity buy the shop manual and follow the troubleshooting flow chart, the best answer will be there.

seems fuel related--pump and pressure regulator may be failing--a pressure test for residual fuel is needed. Go to an honest, independent or specialist. Injector driver could be going bad. It\'s in the computer. Get a obd 1 scan tool on it to read data as well as any codes

Random multiple misfire code. Cat gets glowing red hot. Sluggish lack of power/acceleration


Combining the hot cat converter and the missfire code, I would lean toward a fuel problem. Too lean or pressure too low.
If it was an ignition problem the cat would usually not be hot.
If the exhaust was stopped up, you would not usually get the multiple missfire issue. Just lack of power.
It could be a leaking EGR or other vac problem, and a dirty fuel filter too.

89 K5 Blazer 350 TBI cranks but won't start... the rad hose blew, i fixed it then the next day it bogged and backfired, ran fine cold, but when warmed up it would lose power and stall when trying


Have you checked Google I found this hopefully it's not your timing or it may be flooded but doubtful have you tried spraying starting fluid into the intake while cranking it
