Good god people!

Glow plugs means not gasoline being burned, you will truly ever find spark to be the problem; I will only credit one of the answer guys for even being awake and on point enough to have a clue, the answer involving the coolant temp is the right one, I however will suggest another angle on living with this symptom: spill about two tablespoons of gasoline onto a clean rag and hold that over the air intake, crank it it will start. This will not harm anything and will confirm you have a faulty glow plug timing issue, and for the love of sanity buy the shop manual and follow the troubleshooting flow chart, the best answer will be there.

If the car has over 100,000 miles on it, you may need to replace the distributer. I don't think the bad gas caused this issue I think it may just be a coincdence. But if you already changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor, I would definetly check the distributor.

SOURCE: No glow plug light, car turns over but won't start, no CEL or codes

I don't have the solution but a possible help in diagnosing.  If you remove the water temperature sensor connector from the sensor, the glow plug light should stay on when you go to start the car.  Try leaving it on for 15 seconds and then start the car.  If it starts right away, it is your sensor.  If it doesn't, the good luck.  
The sensor is located on the right side of the engine near the top, at the back.  It is in the coolant fitting directly behind the hose from the rad, just left of the thermostat.  Be careful to disconnect the wires, and not remove the sensor, or you will loose a lot of coolant.  The sensor is held in by a separate plastic clip, and the harness just has a little built in clip on the side.  Hope you have small hands...

U are going to have to pull the gas tank out and replace the fuel pump inside the tank, this is common when you run the gas completely out, the pump is cooled by the gas it runs in, if u run it low allot it burns out the pump bearings very quickly.

Ssangyong kyron wont start when cold


I had a similar problem with my Ssangyong Rexton. Unfortunately, it is the injector pump, the filter gets clogged with micro-particles of crud. Take it to a diesel pump specialist (as a Ssangyong dealer won't know what to do in my experience and they will charge $000's to fix) and get them to remove and clean the injector pump.

95 chevy corsica wont start. it ran fine the night before but now it turns but wont start.


As with any no start issue, you need to figure out if you are dealing with a no fuel or no spark problem to proceed.
The pump could have failed, or the filter in the tank could be plugged up.
I would make sure it has spark at the plugs and then check fuel pressure with a gauge.

2004 chevy 2500 hd deisel, wont start, canged fuel filter about 3 months ago, started today and ran for about 10 seconds then shut off. Haven t been able to start it since??


2 items that will put you back on the road. The glow plug controller When you turn the key on do you hear it. Its on the left rear of the engine above the rocker cover to the left of the turbo charger the glow plus is a assistant to aid in starting, There are two type of controller its either a rely or a solid state, Cycle the key it should come on for 2 seconds. cycle the key again. then start it,if it start get a glow plug control.now if it doesnt start are you willing to use either(its called instant start) use the one for diesel. did it start and stay running. if it stays running glow plug control is needed. Now if it didnt stay running and shuts right of youll need to replace the cam sensor, the cam sensor is located in the right side of timing cover behind the water pump pulley. They are plaque with damage. inspect the cam sensor and the connector for damages, If the camsensor rattles its defective. This cam sensor are failing left and right oh by the way carry an extra one the are common failures

Put new glow plugs in ran fine for 1 day now it wont start..


You may want to surf around on some of the powerstroke forums for detailed answers, but I know the powerstrokes use oil pressure to control the injectors so you may have some problems with the high pressure oil pump.
Again, it is just a guess. I just wanted to point you to some of the Ford Powerstroke forums which may be of much more help for you.
Good luck..
