Question about Ford F

1 Answer

Hi. i have a 94(M) ford transit diesel which hasnt wanted to start for past 6 months. but today i found a snapped cable from something behind my throttle assembly (the bracket that the cable pulls) so i jammed the thing that the cables snapped from on temporarily and it fired up first time!! the part is not part of the throttle as the van still revs fine once started but was thinking it may be some kind of choke or something although it doesnt have a manual choke and i dont think an automatic one would have a cable.. sorry if its not the best description but if you can help in any way it would be much appreciated.. thanks.

IF THE CABLE GOES TO THE AIR BOX CHECK IF IT PULLS THE FLAP IN THE BARELL, IF IT DOES THAT IS A MANUAL CHOKE AND NEED TO BE USED TO START THE MOTOR, BUT AS IT IS DIESEL U PROBERLY HAVE PRE HEATERS IN THE HEAD WHICH DO NOT WORK HENCE WILL NOT GET THE FUEL HOT TO START. MAYBE THIS IS A ELECTRICAL FAULT AS THEY SHOULD WORK ON THE KEY, TURN TO IGN POSITION AND LEAVE FOR 10 SECONDS, THEN CRANK ENGINE, USE A METER TO SEE IF POWER IS GETTING TO THEM, THEY HAVE A CABLE LINKING THEM TO THE RELAY THAT RUNS THEM

2002 F-250 7.3 l diesel leaking fuel at the fuel filter


Running Bio-Diesel should not be a problem, although BD is a great solvent that will dissolve petroleum desposits left behind by regular diesel. I suspect that the gaskets on the fuel drain valve are worn out and leaking fuel. Most of the time the whole valve is replaced, but I have seen only the two o-rings for sale on the internet. It is easier to repair by laying on your front side on a large pillow. If that does not work, come back to fixya and we will help you again.
