Seems like a low injector control pressure situation. You may see plenty of oil pressure on the gauge but the high pressure oil that opens the injectors is probably passing through a blown STC fitting at the back of the high pressure pump or something of that nature. Check for smoke out the tail pipe, if there's smoke, I could be wrong. If you checked the glow plugs (make sure you have 12 comming and going through the relay, just because it clicks does not mean it's working) than you more than likely have compression, the last thing you need is fuel. To get fuel you need high pressure oil. Your truck should have an ICP sensor on the right valve cover toward the front. You can back probe or make a breakout harness to pins... ok I don't know what two pins but there is only three. Anyway backprobe the sensor and see if you have more than .82V while cranking. If you do not, go to the IPR (injection pressure regulator) which is behind and below the turbo. It is a round solenoid valve sticking out of the high pressure oil pump. This valve will have the connector pointing down and toward the back of the motor in it's "weather protecting" position. You can rotate this valve by hand so the connector is easier to get to but don't force it and break it. You will then need to apply 12V and a ground to this valve. Do not supply the voltage for more than 120 seconds though or you could burn the valve up. with 12V to the valve see if it will start. If it will you may have a power supply problem to the valve. If none of this helps let me know, the rest of the troubleshooting is pretty involved.

Could be the Camshaft Position Sensor (CPS) again. Did you have it replaced by the dealer on the Ford unlimited recall ? It's easy to check...get under the front end of the truck and look up by the harmonic balancer (sits behind the main pulley) on the passenger side and you'll see a sensor (could be brown but I believe that one was the recall color, most likely it will be black) with two wires coming out. Is it secured onto it's mounting bracket ? Is the wiring plug snug into it's socket ? If so...it could very well be a defective CPS. It's not unusual. Any possibility your batteries drained to a point where it's not cranking out enough ? Also consider, you may have originally had a different issue besides the CPS.

SOURCE: where and how do you put a cam sensor on a Ford

Camshaft Position Sensor located above front crankshaft pulley. Use 10mm socket on 1/4" drive ratchet. Crawl under front of vehicle, disconnect electrical lead, remove bolt, clean timing chain cover area, install new CPS. About $27 at Ford dealer. On some years this is covered under a recent RECALL by Ford...after years of litigation.

Some of the Ford transmissions actually have an aluminum gear which will go out somewhere around 150 to 200 thousand miles. OR it could be really low on transmission fluid.

SOURCE: 99 Ford F350 Powerstroke diesel; misfire code; loss of power

The first thing i would check is the Glow Plug Relay. Depending on your engine there should be (2 solenoids, or just one) sitting on the top front a little to the right of center. (right bank of engine that is) If you have 2 of them one should be smaller and it is the one furthest to the rear of the engine. It controls power to your glow plugs for cold start up. When you turn the key to the on position the 2 larger wires should both have power. When the ignition is off only one wire should have power. Check this if you do both these tests and only one wire has power with key on or off then you need to make sure that the key switch is sending power to the solenoid. Do this by checking the smaller wire with key off. It should not have power and then with key on it should have power. If this is good and test one is bad then the relay is bad. Note This is not true for the larger realy that sits furthest foward on the engine. The bigger one. This test will not work for it but it controls your intake heater. On another note: This is a timed circut and will "kick out" after about 1-2 minutes. In otherwords it does not stay on all the time that key switch is on it will for for about 1-2 minutes then shut off! Next would be your injectors are getting weak or bad and even your HPOP could be getting weak. or glow plugs in engine are out, In otherwords there are alot of possibilities causing your problems If you are getting a misfire code for your injectors then you may have some weak or inop injectors. Any way this will give you a pretty easy test for the most common failure which is the Glow plug relay. About 35-40 bucks at your local auto parts house.

I have a 2005 ford f-250 diesel powerstroke the check engine light stays on what is going on


check all fluid levels including the radiator at the cap. Run the fault codes and find out what put the light on. It is there to advise you that continued running may result in serious engine/ transmission damage so check it out asap.

What would make my truck misfire if my son put deisle in it


You're joking, right? First question... Why would your truck misfire if you put water, Jello or peanut butter in your gas tank? Answer: Because your truck wasn't designed or set up, to run properly on any of those as a fuel source! Second question... Is you 2005 Trailblazer designed or set up to run on diesel? If your answer is no, slap your son in the head, drain your fuel tank and flush all the diesel from the system. Replace it with the unleaded fuel it was designed to operate on and educate your son on fueling up your truck. Your truck should stop misfiring once all the diesel is gone. Good luck!

I have put unleaded petrol in my tuscon crtd cdx diesel oops. how do i drain my tank is there a bung in the bottom if so where has i can't see it or do you advise me to get profess drained. also could you...


there will be a bung in the bottom of the tank but i advise you get it done professionally, because they'll have to check and test alot of things as putting petrol in a diesel engine can cause alot of damage internally. you probably shouldn't even drive it to a mechanics shop because the more you drive it the more damage it'll cause.

Need to change glow plugs on a mercedes C220D 1998


dont bother too much with thebullshit recipe .mercedesbenz were built in a cold country and have the cold start tecnique off pat .you need to establish if all the glow plugs are working .,if the engine misses and runs rough when it does start then the glow plugs are not all working but you need to test them with a test light and i would be inclined to think you will need to replace them. do them all as the ones that do work will stop soon.they all seem to go around the same time------------"youdoit "

I have a feeling you got a wholed of unleaded fuel or bad fuel
I drive a diesel box truck the station I always took it to the fuelman put unleaded in the diesal tanks and the truck just died it had to have the gas tank completed drained and cleaned out but also ask yourself how many miles are on it and when was last tune up and if you live in a cold climate I recommend a heater block plug
