Question about 1986 Ford F 350
In my 86 ford F350 the glow plug light will not come on. And the truck will not start even if i do it manually. Someone told me to do that, and i dont know if it's a good thing to do or not. Any takers on how I could get it back up and running?
Sounds like bad advice. If your glow plugs are bad, the last thing you want to do is try to start it. Remember, diesel engines use these glow plugs like coils in a toaster. Since diesel is harder to burn than gasoline, the glow plugs heat up to a combustible temperature, allowing the diesel to ignite and your vehicle to start. I don't know the reprocussions of trying to start it without them working...but it can't be good.
