Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 1992 Ford F 250 7.3 Liter diesel. It died and will not start. It cranks but does not fire. I think it may be the fuel filter. I have never owned a diesel before. I need to know how to locate it and the correct method to change it. Could someone please help me?
Fuel filter problems come in slowly as in loss of power. It it just died and will not start I would be looking elsewhere for the problem. A good place to start would be the fault codes to check for cam/crank position sensor faults, immobiliser operation,timing belt condition. If you ran the fuel too low it may have air in the system that will have to be bled out. Best have an accredited diesel shop specialist look at it.
