Hi

I believe you just have a simple heat related cranking problem. How old is the battery and where did it come from/what brand is it?
I would suggest if it's questionable, to replace it and go get one at Wal-Mart...They’re made by INTERSTATE so they last and perform and they're cheap there. Get the Maxx battery since you have a diesel to turn over.

Also refer to this link for further assistance.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

2005 GMC Yukon Denali's computer shuts down after the truck warms up


sounds like a fuel problem, how many miles on vehicle? as a quick fix it would be worth using a fuel addative , you haven't said if petrol or diesel, if petrol get addative that covers the catalytic converter ,having a blocked exhaust system can cause engine to stall also get the OBD codes read as this will tell you what if any sensors/switch's are faulty

DI have a 1983 ford f250 with 6.9 diesel engine. The previous owner told me that the front fuel tank did not work; he said that he was running the truck on the front tank once and that the truck started...


have you looked into the injectors, or injector balance? glow plugs just preheat the cylinders before you start turning the engine over. if the injectors are dumping too much fuel it will run rich and blow black smoke, lean it will dump white smoke, same as if it has an internal coolant leak, but smell different. Ford has had problems with EGR systems on some of their diesels, being an older truck how many miles is on it? and the front fuel tank could have a bad fuel pump, pretty common for them to do what you have described. Also might want to have the timing looked at on it! It ignites off of pressure, and if the timing is off it will adversely affect the ignition of the fuel which will make for hard starts, and poor running. there is a lot that needs to be looked at to figure this one out! could be quite a few different things. Good luck!

Changed fuel filters in 6.0L ford diesel. now it wont start.


the filters need to be pumped with fuel, should show you hoe in the owners manual; empty filters cause the same effect as running out of diesel.

It may have run out of fuel when the filter was replaced, you may need to use some starting fluid for diesel to getting going and when it starts just rev engine for a few minutes to bleed any air out, also the fault may be related you would have to scan it to see what the fault is , i would start with these things first. hope this helps, good luck.

1984 bronco 2-runs 15 min shuts down wont start again for 20 runs


If the fuel filter is dirty it will settle when you turn the truck off. When it runs for a few minutes the debris in the filter will get sucked into the screen and stop the fuel from getting through. If it was a starter or coil, it would not start at all.

Fuel pump relay


If this happens every time you start your truck and it shuts off the same each time, you just might have a dirty fuel filter only allowing so much gas pass through until it clogs once again. I once had a chevy van, when I would drive it, would go a few miles and engine would shut down.   I would wait 10 or 15 minutes, it would start up and allow me to drive a few more miles then shut down again.  I changed the fuel filter, It was fine after that.
