SOURCE: ford f350 7.3l diesel carnks but won't start

Check your battery voltage while cranking. If it's too low, the electronics won't work and the injectors won't fire. If the batteries are down a bit, there won't be enough power to turn the engine over fast enough to start. It needs a minimum of 100 rpm and 8 volts while cranking. You also might try waiting till you're sure the GPR has dropped out. That takes the GP load off the batteries and may get the voltage up enough to get it to start, oh and also does the tach move when you're cranking? If not, then chances are the CPS is the culprit.

SOURCE: replace fuel pump on 03 Ford F350 diesel

simple : obtain replacement pump from parts provider (no used stuff)

Now help me out here: thats the year they were bolted to the pass side front of engine
and not inside the tank right? (better go look to see for sure)

using a tube wrench unscrew the fuel lines (i use large wire nuts to temp block off fuel leakage)

with a 12 mm wrench undo the two side bolts holding the pump to block

wiggle pump it should come straight off

clean mounting place on block with solvent let dry

silicone back (or use gasket that comes with pump ) of pump

apply pump to block (depending on where crank stopped you may have some tension on arm you will have to overcome to get flange to meet block )

use locktite (blue)or simmiliar thread lock on bolts retighten firmly but not hang up the dog tight

use light grease or vasolene on tube connections don't try to tighten dry

Now the fun part your diesel now has air in the fuel system

there are two ways to remove this ( hard and harder)
your choice here are both methods

loosten the fuel supply line for #8 injector ( I did not say remove) 1 full turn ought to be enough

crank engine 30 seconds only
wait 5 minutes for starter to cool down
crank engine 30 sec again
did it start but runs rough while it's still running tighten #8 injector (caution fuel under high pressure)
engine smooth out good your lucky
engine did not start yet
wait 5 minutes
crank engine 30 sec again
start yet
if so tighten #8 injector up

Now here's something I've done to my diesel to make this much less a hasstle

trace fuel line as it comes up from pump
obtain a small low pressure electric fuel pump and a two short pieces of fuel line
and a few clamps

use tube cutter and cut fuel line just before it bends to go in filter
deburr edges
slide tube and clamps over pipe (both sides)
insert pump observe flow arrrow towards filter

the wires of pump can be stretched over to #1 battery terminals

now any time you change a filter or open your fuel system for any reason
all you need do is connect pump to battery
open sharader valve on top of filter for a few min
and start truck as normal
then disconnect wires and stow away for another day

SOURCE: Need a pic veiw of 2004 ford f350 6.0L diesel EGR

1st of all when Ford started out with putting "EGR's" on those diesel engines, they rushed it and are nothing less than a pain in the ***! i recommend having an EGR cleaning service performed by your local Ford dealer, i know they charge up the wazoo, but they're the best people to perform the service period.this is a VERY common problem with those engines and that service is "supposed" to be performed every 30K I believe. i dont recommend attempting to remove and service it youself, this WILL only make it worse.

Have an 07 f350 Ford pick up 6.0L power stroke .batterys replaced . Alternator replaced . Dash battery light still stays on no charge .soure voltage gd to alternator ,and plug . Reads gd voltage to si


I would try the regulator, there is a few tests to see if the alternator is charging, use a multi meter and check the b post on the alternator and earth and see what voltage it is producing, check all those sort of things and you will find the problem, make sure the battery terminals are very clean or they won't accept charge as well, hope this helps

On a 2005 Ford F350 6.0 Diesel (yup it's a a lemon) The truck has cost $16K since out of warranty. I'm on my 7th alternator and 3rd set of batteries. If the truck sits for a day it won't start and...


Well, the Diesel does not use Electronics to fire the cylinders. So you have a Timer system for the glowplugs and that is all. If you rig up a cheater light on one of the glowplugs and fuse it and run it to an added light inside the cab, you will know if the glowplug circuit is staying on or not. It should only activate a few flashes on each cold or lukewarm start and then stay off.

Alternator brush plug-in. The plastic clip containing the contacts for the tab in the Alternator can ride up when a Mechanic tries to install this wiring lead.

Rear window defroster staying on. Sneaky. Can be on without indicator light showing. Can break contact as Negative ground is disconnected.

Transmission solenoids and converter use electric. Possible short.

Battery Saver- Can deactivate charging system even at 70mph.
Anti-theft- Can reduce battery voltage to starter.

Would be interested in knowing final fix.

My 2004 f350 diesel is not charging the battery Alt. test good Bat. test good


Possible that the alternator or the electronic charging unit has failed. You need to start and check the battery voltage with the car running and reving.

Charging system


If you have changed the alternator and regulator, about all that could be left would either be a short circuit that is draining current away, or a bad ignition warning light bulb. That is because the power to energize the field of the alternator, comes through this dash bulb.
