Top up your anti-freeze...make sure your radiator and overflow collecter is full cold. It seems to me like once the coolant is hot and it expands...it expands enough to fill your heater core. if everything seems full while it is cold and not running...you may have an air lock somewhere

It takes quite a while for a diesel to warm up by just idling in order to produce any heat.you have to put them under a load (drive it), before you will get any noticeable heat.if you have a block heater, plug it in 4-5 hours before you plan on driving it and that will definitely help produce interior heat quicker.

The transmission shifts good but the truck has to warm up for it to go in drive. once it is warmed up a good bit it will go into drive and shift fine. Why is that, and how can I fix it?


what is causing your problem is the seals inside the transmission are getting hard do the the fact that the transmission is alwise heating up and cooling down , this is a common problem for all high mileage trucks first you should try to have the transmission serviced and add some transX to it, this will help to make the seals playable again unfortunately if this does not work the only other thing to do is have the transmission rebuilt or replaced, but the transX is a good product i have seen it do the trick 100's of times.....GOOD LUCK

Your pre heating circuit may not be working properly. It should cycle for a bit when you first start the engine. Also it may be a good idea to change the fuel filter. Haynes has a Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part # 10330 that may prove to be a help for you. Hope this helps.

Diesel 1989 F-250 set too long and will roll over


You may have to bleed the fuel system. There may be a very small air leak in the fuel supply line and after a long time idle, the fuel seeps bac into the tank, leaving an air lock in the pipe. When you go to start, this air makes its way into your injection pump & needs to be bled out before the engine will start. Begin from your fuel filter bleed valve, next the injection pump using the primer pump to transfer the fuel. Next loosen off the injector pipes and crank the engine over until fuel sprays form all the joints. Tighten injector pipes and start. It may run a bit rough for to begin with, but will soon even out. If it doesn't start, repeat bleeding of injectors.

How much warm up time does a dodge sprinter 2500 diesiel require in the winter time?


At idle it can take hours to fully warm up

If your concerned about driving it right away after starting, not a big issue.....start, let it warm a min or two then drive.

Diesels warm slower than gas engines, and they take longer to get warm enough to give you heat untill fully warmed up.

Normally you should see good temp and good heat after driving about 15 minutes after the first cold start of the day.

2000 F-250 7.3 diesel, cuts out runs rough no power


Well, you have to let diesels warm up before you drive them so the engine gets warm and it may not sound right at first because if its not warm the compression gets off and doesnt fire right. If you try to give it too much gas before its warm, extra diesel will get in the cylinders and misfire. Then when it does fire, there is a lot of extra fuel in it so that causes the smoke and smell. You should always let it warm up for a bit before driving when you havent driven it for a while.

check out the steering stabilizer(it's the shock on the steering linkage) for wear. If it shows signs of leakage replace it.
