Try to have codes pulled to see if any codes relate to the starting issue.

SOURCE: will not start

potential water in line. Red, plastic bottle of Gas treatment first. STP gas treatment highly rec. Definitely make sure you do not have any more gas leaks since the system relies on pressure. Any loss in pressure results in loss of fuel to injectors/carb. Start with the gas treatment first... go from there. Sounds retarded but believe me, this has helped countless people... including myself multiple times.

Afterwards, you will need to think on terms of electrical ignition problems:

HV coil

HV coil wire


clogged filter or reversed direction filter [recheck even though it is new]

SOURCE: 1994 powerstroke diesel wont start

no wait to start light is a good indication that you need to check you glowplug relay and harness. Make sure you have 12V in and out of the relay. Also if you can check to see if you have good continuity to ground through your glow plugs. This is kind of hard to do on this engine, sometimes it is OK just to check the AMP draw for the leff and right group of wires. Do this by putting an AMP clamp around all 4 wires to the left and right bank. Wait about 45 sec. for the relay to click off (if it clicked on) and then record the amps right before the relay turns off. Let me know what the amp draw is and I can check it against the spec sheet. Se you amp clamp above 100 amps, it might start around 60A and end up around 36A if I remember correctly.

SOURCE: 99 f250 diesel wont crank

First thing to check for is if the starter has a thermal overcrank or not, thermal overcrank sensor is located right on the starter it should have two wires going to the connector, check to make sure you have a ground to one wire at key engine off, next if ground is present on one wire plug back into sensor on starter and make sure ground is bridge or present on other wire, if ground is not transfer to other circuit when plugged in then thermal overcrank sensor is bad than just jump circuit or replace sensor, now if ground is not present on either circuit at key on engine off than applied ground to both wire and retest starter cranking at key switch, please update once test is complete, thanks.

When I turn over my t100 it takes about 45 sec or even longer before it will fire up. After motor is running truck runs just fine without any issues I worry that once winter hits it won't start at all


try turning key on but not to the cranking position and wait 30 seconds before cranking . that will give the fuel pump time to build pressure . you may have a leak or a weak pump .

This 30 amp fuse, If it blows when cranking, it is usually the starter dragging, if it blows by just turning the key on it is usually the fuel pump drawing too many amps.

Are you waiting after turning ignition key on before actually moving key to start position? My diesel I turn key to 1st position;bells and lights;if engine is cold an amber light that looks like a lamp filiment comes on...wait until that light goes out before engaging the starter.

Oil ran out while driving..plug had came out. put oil & plug in & truck will not start. 2002 ford f250


You ran the truck out of oil? If so then you have seized the engine up and it wont start again. If your lucky the engine could be rebuilt using the same block but the internals will all need to be replaced.

Bad glow plugs and/or glow plug controller. Common issue with these vehciles. Some also have harness failures. Replace all glow plugs as a set not individually.
