Question about 1997 Ford F250 SuperCab
Just bought this 97 F250 and it has a starting problem. It will start with a short spray of ether, and will run great once running. It also start if the motor is still hot or shortly after it has been running. I have been told to many opinions, and not sure where to begin. I have been told it could be the glow plugs, or the High pressure oil pump. Please send your support! Thank you
Checking and cleaning the battery and conections at the battery and starrter not forgetting the all impotant grounds is a must at first. slow cranking do to bad battery's or conections is a common cause witch will allso decrease the effectiveness of the glow plugs. Allso the glow plugs of this truck do have a problem of going out so a new set wouldn't hurt the other thing to know about this truck is that the light indecater is just a recomendation the plugs themselves will stay on for around two minutes so a delaid start ten to twenty seconds prior couldn't hurt and will help the enitial cold start. Other known hard start problems for this rig consist of worn fuel pump, bad glow plug relay, or high oil presure sender. I allso would refrain from using either by pluging the truck in tell you can find the problem.

If you have two batteries dicconect both and check each one seperatley. I had same problem and one battery was weak and needed replacing.
Hope this is will solve your problem.
