Starting the engine when cold

I have a 2001 F350 SD V10, the problem i seem to have is when the outside temperature gets to ''0'' the engine is hard to start, i want to replace the coolant temp sensor but can,t find its location on the engine. All the manual says is where the diesel one is.

Look for the temp sensor around the area where the top coolant hose meets the engine. That should be your thermostat housing (goose neck)....the coolant temp sensor is typically located in or around that component. What octane gas are you using? You may find that operating in the colder temp will require you to run premium in order to avoid excessive starts.

Truck wont start on starting fluid it is a ford f350 2001 v10


I would think that you have a spark problem. There is an Ignition Relay or ECC Relay. Your need to know certain Pin connectors to test the functions of the Crankshaft sensor and Camshaft sensors.

You may have a "check engine" light showing on the dash and it is not apparent because the dash lights have not cycled off with a no start condition. You may be able to scan the truck for a diagnosis.

While you may have fuel pressure at the test port, your injectors may not be opening. But since you used starting fluid to no avail, most likely you lack spark.

Your truck should have an ECC or Ignition Relay and perhaps an ECC diode. These parts provide power to the other components of the spark system. The secondary parts like Crankshaft sensors, the Camshaft sensors, and others use the power from these Relays.

You can satisfy yourself about fuel pressure by checking pressure at the test port, but spark seems to be your issue.

Please comment on my info.

I have a 2001 F350 diesel 7.3L crew cab. Since the cold night, I’ve been using my plug-in heater at. In the mornings it starts fine. But after 8hours of work (where I can’t plug the heater in), I have to...


very normal with a 7.3 to be hard starting at lower temps the only thing i can recommend is getting a remote start with cold start where it starts it every 2 hours and runs it for 10 mins other than that you need to plug it in

My 4.0 starts great when cold, but is very hard to start when hot. Any ideas?


Sounds like the electronic module needs to be replaced. Unplug the old one take out the mounting screws get a new one at the auto parts place plug it in replace the mounting screws and it should be ready to go it's not hard

1992 F-350 Dsl - very hard to start when cool


are you using cold temperature engine oil!
if not, try changing oil for cold temperature!

hard starting happens due to the cold temperature, air pressure is low during this season so compression inside the engine is low resulting to hard starting!

make sure that all your glow plugs are working.
