Why am I having fuel issues with a 97' f-250 7.3 powerstroke, put new sensors on everything, new fuel lift pump, glow plugs,filter, new tank filter, cleaned all the lines from tank to the fuel bowl, s


If this situation occurs after a period of time then check the tank vent correctly at the vent valve on top of the tank. If it occurs reasonably quickly then check the fuel return lines from the injectors to the tank for obstruction ,kinks ,squashed etc preventing the fuel free access to the tank. check the pressure regulator to the pump is holding sufficient pressure to maintain pressure to the pumpin the pump

DI have a 1983 ford f250 with 6.9 diesel engine. The previous owner told me that the front fuel tank did not work; he said that he was running the truck on the front tank once and that the truck started...


have you looked into the injectors, or injector balance? glow plugs just preheat the cylinders before you start turning the engine over. if the injectors are dumping too much fuel it will run rich and blow black smoke, lean it will dump white smoke, same as if it has an internal coolant leak, but smell different. Ford has had problems with EGR systems on some of their diesels, being an older truck how many miles is on it? and the front fuel tank could have a bad fuel pump, pretty common for them to do what you have described. Also might want to have the timing looked at on it! It ignites off of pressure, and if the timing is off it will adversely affect the ignition of the fuel which will make for hard starts, and poor running. there is a lot that needs to be looked at to figure this one out! could be quite a few different things. Good luck!

New injectors nnew glow plugs new filters new batterys and still wont start in cold conditions


Is the glow plug timer opperating for long enough ? and do you wait for glow light to go out before starting? On real cold days there could be a problem with fuel waxing up in the lines, your heaters would compensate for this. some add a little kerrosene to the fuel. check with your fuel supplier. There is also a verry good Wynns product that lowers the freezing piont of the wax in deisel so that freezing is less likley to occour. hope this helps

Will not start. code reader says glow plug heater circiut malfunction.


Hi Mike:
Glow plugs-on fed truck usually the controller-on cal.equipped truck usually glowplugs themselves.

We are assuming the you have some of this codes:
- P0380 Glow Plug/Heater Circuit A Malfunction
- P0381 Glow Plug/Heater Indicator Circuit Malfunction

I found this after searching this and other diesel sites for about a week glow plugs are covered on factory extended warranty-10 years or 200000 miles call GM @ 1-800-462-8782 have VIN# ready

Models: 2002 - 04 Chevrolet Silverado
2002 - 04 GMC Sierra
Equipped with 6.6L Diesel V8 (RPO LB7 - VIN 1) Engine; and California Emissions (YF5/NE1), or Clean Fuel Emissions (VCL)

Condition: Some customers of 2002 - 04 model year Chevrolet Silverado; and GMC Sierra trucks, equipped with a 6.6L diesel V8 (LB7) engine, and California emissions (YF5/NE1), or Clean Fuel Fleet emissions (VCL), may experience a condition where the engine glow plugs may fail. Failure of the glow plugs on these vehicles will cause illumination of the MIL. Also, depending on the ambient cold start conditions and the number of glow plugs failing open, some customers may also comment about hard starting, misfiring and white smoking after cold start.

Customer Notification: General Motors will notify customers of this special coverage on their vehicles (see copy of typical customer letter included with this bulletin - actual divisional letter may vary slightly).

Ask your local dealer.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I will appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

This issue had nothing to do with the glow plugs nor the batteries. This is most likely an issue with the fuel system. I would have to start with the fuel filter and see if that may not be plugged up.

My 2500 chey silverodo starts hardfor the first 10


Hi, if it's a diesel engine, they all have to sit for some seconds because of the glow plugs. Some diesel don't send power to the starter until the glow plugs run for the pre-determined amount of time. There are many things that could be causing this. Fuel filter, clogged injectors, fuel pump going bad or bad connection to fuel pump. Try checking out for this things..
Take care

diesel engine have small starter helpers called glow plugs that heat the combustion air so that it can self ignite the diesel fuel
reasons for hard starting are
slow cranking speed---battery not charged enough or not big enough to do the job
injectors squirting and nit atomizing--- take the car to an accredited diesel pump/ injector repair shop for tip replacement and adjustment
the check engine light could be from faulty glow plugs
keep the fuel tank full ,especially in cold climate as there is hot return fuel from the injectors that causes condensation in the tank--water -- and that promotes the growth of a fungus which damages the pump and injectors
use diesel fuel condition on a regular basis to prevent that condition or keep the tank more that 3/4 full to stop condensation occuring
