The car usually starts in the morning but after driving and then parking it for some time it will not start unless jump-started. But it starts again the following morning. Why is it behaving this way?


diesel is diesel and the quality will only affect performance
At this point from what you state I suspect that it is a starter motor
To remove it and have it pulled down and armature and fields properly tested would remove it from the list
have an accredited auto electrician check out the charging system

My 2000 cadillac deville wont start. Battery and alternator good. Trunk or gas door will not open either until I start it. I jump start it and its fine all day until the next morning.


If you can jump start it, then it is most likely the battery. Unless you have had the battery Load Tested, a simple voltage check is not enough to ensure there are enough amps there to start the car, especially on cold mornings. Since you can warm start it and it seems to do well all day, my bet would be a weak or dead cell in the battery.

I have a 2001 F350 diesel 7.3L crew cab. Since the cold night, I’ve been using my plug-in heater at. In the mornings it starts fine. But after 8hours of work (where I can’t plug the heater in), I have to...


very normal with a 7.3 to be hard starting at lower temps the only thing i can recommend is getting a remote start with cold start where it starts it every 2 hours and runs it for 10 mins other than that you need to plug it in

Are you letting the glow plugs get hot enough? Does it have glow plugs? How about the battery? Does it die down while all this is happening? Might want to think about using starting fluid on cold days. My tractor would fire on cold days and the battery would be half dead, but I always waited for the plugs to get hot enough.

It was cold this morning and went out to start the diesel truck, turn the key and let the glow plug lite go off and try to start and nothing, it won't even crank over. Came home that day and it had warm up...


you can have a weak battery alot of time when its cold it effects battery's with dead cells but when they warm up. Make sure your battery cables and terminals are free off corrosion if they aint clean the and try you may need to jump it after or it could be an altenator or number of diffrent things.

Ford F250 turbo diesel cut out and died as left house this morning, cold morning. Will not start, not even a cough. Have new fuel filters, need location of the filters, anything else I should check?


if you have the 6.0 then the filters are located on top on the motor right beside your oil filter and under the drivers side on the fuel pump, check to see if you have diesel in your bowl where the fuel filter is, no diesel in there your fuel pump might be dead, check fuses to fuel pump and check relay on the passengers side kicker panel, check your owners manual

Jaguar x type 2 litre diesel. how often should the glow plugs be changed?


Hi, glow plugs does not need changing unless the vehicle struggles to start in the morning or when cold. When testing the glow plugs, they should not take longer then about 5 seconds to become red hot.

Truck fails to start


The 01 DuraMax trucks do not have a block heater, unless they were special ordered with one. Just turn the key to the on position a few times before you try to crank it, and hold the accelerator partially down while doing it. However, don't hold the accelerator if it starts to crank, it DOES need a minute to warm up before being revved. Also, use a diesel treatment when its cold, it helps a lot.
