    Hi Charles Ting, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?

    Have you checked the fuel filter/strainer? Have you pulled the fuel pump and tested it with a multimeter?

Check your fuel pressure at the schraeder valve that is on the fuel rail. If you have fuel pressure, check for spark.If no spark, then ignition diagnosis is needed.If no fuel pressure, check for diconnected, or pinched wires, as this can easily happen during an engine swap.

7.3 diesel cranking over more than my v-10 is that normal


Yes, it IS normal for a powerstroke diesel to require more revolutions of the motor to fire than for any gasoline engine. Combustion in gasoline engines is stimulated by spark plugs and many gasoline engines will start with little turning of the motor past the position where the ignition timing creates the spark and combustion occurs. Combustion forces the engine to continue rotating and combustion in that and other cylinders becomes a perpetual event. A Powerstroke Diesel engine requires more revolutions and speed of revolutions to create the heat necessary to cause the diesel/air mixture to combust. ALSO, the diesel is injected into the combustion chamber, at high pressure, by the injectors. The injectors are electronically controlled and the Fuel Control Module (computer) (also known as the Injector Control Module or ICM) tells each injector exactly when to open and inject diesel into the combustion chamber, as well as for how many milliseconds it stays open (how much fuel will be delivered). Summary, a powerstroke diesel will only begin the perpetual combustion process when the motor is turning fast enough and the pistons are compressing the volume of the cylinder into the tight space of the combustion chamber rapidly enough to create enough heat for the fuel to ignite and begin creating power to turn the motor without the aid of the starter. IN ADDITION, a Powerstroke will NOT start at all with weak batteries. Not only does the motor need to revolve rapidly in order to start, the injectors require a MINIMUM voltage of MORE THAN 12 volts in order to activate (open). The exact amount of voltage required can be different, depending on the Fuel Control Module (FCM) or "Injector Control Module" (ICM) type that is installed. (Note; terminology for the FCM / ICM tend to depend on who you are talking to, what resource you are reading, etc. They are the same thing.) If batteries are weak, the starter uses enough amps to drag the voltage down and, even though the starter turns the motor fast enough that any gasoline motor would fire right up, the ICM will never send the signal to the injectors for them to activate so, the cylinders never get any fuel and the motor never fires. I hope that helps. Yes, a 7.3L diesel will normally need to turn with the starter for longer than your gasoline fueled V10.

Disconnected battery and now won't start


Won't start as in no rotation of the starter motor and no clicking sound? Or starter turns slowly with the engine? Or the starter and engines turns normally but will not start? Or starter turns normally but engine will not turn?

Engine wont turn over on my gv 2006


The 1st thing i need to do is clarify what you mean by "won't trun over" do you mean the starter motor spins the engine and it will not fire up or that the starter doesn't trun the engine over? If the starter doesn't turn the engine over do you hear a clicking coming from the starter solenoid when this happens? If so replace the starter solenoid the heavy electrical contacts are burned.

Stop on stop sign engine died


If the engine won't fire up, but your starter turns over, you may want to check your timing unless you have a check engine light on. If the CEL light is on, have the codes scanned.

If the engine won't turn over with the starter or it clicks, have your battery tested at autozone or advanced auto parts. Replace the battery if it is bad. Else, have your starter tested.

If the engine still won't turn over and the battery and starter are tested fine, you may have a blown fuse, bad ignition switch, or a failed relay.

If the engine fires up but randomly dies and starts back up, you either have a failed sensor, failing fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, bad plugs or wires, or a failing ECU.

1993 gmc 1500 350cid - engine turns over but will not start. Fuel is good


Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If it's not turning over then the problem will be on the firing. If there's no current to the plugs, the engine won't fire up. Few things to look at to resolve the issue... First, the ignition coil can be faulty. Second, The ignition switch can be faulty. Third will be the starter. If it's faulty, it won't kick the flywheel. One good reason why it won't turn over.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

99 dodge ram 3500 diesel starter will not shut off with key, turn off key and starter moter stays engaged and engine has run on. had to disconnect both batteries. gently tapped starter selenoid with hammer...


it sounds like the starter solenoid contacts are not separating to stop the starter from turning.the run on is due to the starter not stopping causing the motor to continue to spin.replace the starter unit as it will have damage due to being engaged with the motor running,also have the flywheel inspected to make sure the teeth are not damaged on it.

I have a 2004 excursion diesel drove it all day stoped at a clients turned it off for 20 min came out and wont start the starter is going but its just not firing could it be a fuse I dont smell fuel but I...


Ok well the glow plugs on a diesel have nothing to do with the engine firing. All the glow plugs do is heat up the combusion chamber on cold starts. Diesel engines fire using high compression. An oxygen sensor won't cause the vehicle to not start and your diesel doesn't have one of those anyways. It could be a fuel related issue. (pump, line, pressure etc.) Have you it scanned for engine DTC's? But based on your knowledge of your diesel vehicle i'm going to suggest you take it to a shop.

2003 ford transit diesel fuel getting to injectors engine is turning over but not firing


Have your injection pump checked. If the diesel fuel feed
going to the pistons is not highly atomized, there's no way that the diesel fuel gets to explode to keep your
engine to run. However, also check the air filter system
going to your engine. To get the diesel fuel to explode needs right air fuel ratio. Once these are checked, I'm
sure you get your diesel car running.

1987 Mitsubishi Pajero 2.5 turbo diesel not starting


Hi, there is a little cable that in on the starter motor, probably you have just disconnect it, it happens to my pajero lot of times. look around the starter motor for a cable that is not going somewhere and then locate the little connector on the top and rear part of the starting motor. if this is not the case then try another battery, pretty sure one of the two is the problem.
