Question about Ford Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

1992 Ford F350-7.3 Diesel 4 wheel drive. Have to crank engine a long time to get truck started.

Replaced Fuel pump, glow plugs, glow plugs controller, engine temperature switch, fuel filter & continuous vent with check valve. Also, checked fuel coming thru fuel pump and checked glow plugs to make sure they were ok. Why do I still have to crank the engine so long to get it started?

Instead of investing all that money for items that may not have had to be replaced, why not invest in the services of a qualified diesel mechanic? They should be able to isolate and correct your problem, and probably at a fraction of the money you have already spent. If this work was done my a 'qualified' mechanic, take it back and have it done right or file a claim against them, and report them to BBB.

96 Ford F-350 Turbo Diesel. Replaced 4 glow plugs on driver side. After replacing the glow plugs and the glow plug relay, the truck will crank slow and not start. Batteries power drained quickly while...


Have a load test done on the batter to check for failing cells. For diesels to start any thing less than a fully charged battery good battery is a waste of time as the engine needs fast RPM to heat the air to ignite the fuel and slow rpm's just doesn't cut it.

2001 f350 diesel wont start without starting fld after wormed up


Starting fluid is a bad idea on glow plug engines. Some things to check are, the IDM, TPS, crank sensor, cam sensor, wires running through valve cover gasket, glow plug controller, ECM. Have the codes ran first. Could be one of the fuel pumps, but not common.
