    Thank you for the input. I have a OBD 2 but it doesn't work on models before 2005. I hope I can further diagnose the problem and if it is cheap fix it! Cheers Jeff

89 Ford E350 Diesel - two problems 1) no power to instrument cluster, 2) diesel will not fire off without starter fluid...but the glow plug solenoid does click and wait light goes off


You should never use starter fluid when the glow plugs are hooked up. It can cause severe engine damage. You probably need to replace all the glow plugs and the glow plug controller.

I have a 2008 ford kuga 2.0 tdci 4x4 when its below 5ºc it will not start i have pluged a snap on scanner in and has come up with a fuel pressure fault any ideas ?


Diesel fuel tends to be sluggish to pump in cold weather and that is why some diesel cars and trucks have heaters in the fuel tank to overcome this problem. However I tend to think that the glo-plugs are not working as they should be. Have them tested . The fuel pressure fault may be the inability of the pump to pump enough fuel to do the job.

1999 ford escort diesel early morning hard start


Do you have a glow plug light that is flashing on and off very quickly? That would mean the glow plug circuit resistance is low, that means that that one or more plugs are burnt out.

I have an 1993 Ford F250 turbo diesel truck that won't start. I've been told, that the glow plugs are not warming up. Where are the glow plugs and is there anything I can do to warm them up or fix? Do they...


Are you waiting after turning ignition key on before actually moving key to start position? My diesel I turn key to 1st position;bells and lights;if engine is cold an amber light that looks like a lamp filiment comes on...wait until that light goes out before engaging the starter.

86 Ford truck WONT start


Sounds like bad advice. If your glow plugs are bad, the last thing you want to do is try to start it. Remember, diesel engines use these glow plugs like coils in a toaster. Since diesel is harder to burn than gasoline, the glow plugs heat up to a combustible temperature, allowing the diesel to ignite and your vehicle to start. I don't know the reprocussions of trying to start it without them working...but it can't be good.

Bad glow plugs and/or glow plug controller. Common issue with these vehciles. Some also have harness failures. Replace all glow plugs as a set not individually.
