Question about 2000 Ford Excursion
I HAVE A 2000 FORD EXCURSION WITH THE7.3 THAT TURNS OVER GOOD BUT WONT START. WILL START WITH STARTING FLUID BUT DONT WANT TO BE USEING THAT. GLOW PLUGS TURN ON AND IT STARTS IF I JUMP IT. DONT KNOW WHATS GOING ON WITH THIS. PLEASE HELP AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH
Since you said that ,".....IT STARTS IF I JUMP IT", that indicates that your batteries are not providing enough energy to turn the engine over quickly enough to get it started. You could have the batteries checked and go from there. It is also possible that the cable are not making sufficient contact with the battery cables. First, disconnect battery cables and clean up the cable ends with some kind of over the counter acid neutralizer or make your own with sodium bicarbonate and water. Brush the terminals and cable with a wire battery brush and reconnect cables to battery terminals. Be sure to connect positive (red) terminals first and then the negatives (black) to minimize sparking. If the engine still does not start, then, I would just replace both batteries with two new INTERSTATE batteries. They are a little pricey, but they make high quality batteries. This should fix your problem and your car should start. If you still need help, please contact me at FixYa and I will be glad to assist.
