SOURCE: 2004 Ford f-250 6.0 Liter Diesel will crank but

Hi, i would first try replacing the glow plugs as if you have problems starting from cold then this is the cause you can usually tell if it is the glow plugs if after running it up till temperature then turn it off and then start it again strait away if it starts fine when upto temp then this indicates that the glow plugs need replacing.
If it still has the problem when upto running temp then the chances are the fuel lines and injectors need cleaning.
You can buy a fuel additive and using this will solve the problem just pour it into tank then give it a good run about 3 hours then see what its like at starting if this solves the problem then i would put this into my fuel once every couple of months.
If on the other hand you still have problems then the chances are it could be either the diesel pump failing or could be even worse like head gasket.
If this is the case then this will need testing at a garage as they have testing kits to test if their are any gasses getting into the water system this indicating a head gasket problem.
If you need further assistance then post back.
Hope this is some help to you

SOURCE: 1 ton Chevy G30 With 6.5 Diesel wont start parked uphill

If the pick-up filter is located at the front of the tank and the tank is almost empty the pump would starve for fuel.

How do i change the fuel filter on a 1992 Ford F 250 7.3 Liter diesel.

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.

I have a 91 f350 7.3 liter idi. It will not start

cranks ok , and fast?
after checking all fuses. (the FSM shows correct fuse)

International Harvester IDI (from Indirect Injection) engine is a 4-stroke 8-cylinder Diesel engine used in International Harvester trucks,
like all diesels check fuel filters first. (service)
then make sure glow plugs work. (fsm covers this)
then scan it EFI for DTC errors. got errors?
direct injection uses EFI.

IF DIY, you need the book, I promise.....
its not simple like old diesels were.

Ran out of diesel now vehicle won't start

This is not unusual on a diesel. What happens is there is air in the system. If this vehicle has an electric fuel pump loosen line where fuel enters injection pump then turn ignition key to the on position and watch for fuel to appear and then quickly tighten line before turning off key. Then try to start. If does not have electric fuel pump will need a second person. One will loosen line and watch while other cranks vehicle until you get fuel and tighten line before the other person releases ignition switch unless vehicle starts first. If that doesn't do the job do this where line hooks onto each injector. Probably will not have to do this to all injectors but could run rough until all the air gets out of everything. I have farmed with diesel tractor for 25 years and dad I drove the gm vehicles with the 5.7. You normally don't start a diesel without bleeding the air out of the lines although some will self bleed most won't. Hope this does the trick.
