Question about 2004 Ford F250
Today my Ford F-250 diesel suddenly wouldn't start. The engine turned over but wouldn't catch and ultimately the truck had to be towed. When it got to the service station they said it started right away. After checking it out they said the alternator wasn't fully recharging the batteries when the truck was on. So when it came time to start the weaker batteries turned the engine slightly slower, which didn't build up enough oil pressure to engage the fuel injectors which caused the truck to not start. So the problem is a faulty alternator that needs to be replaced after only 56000 miles. Sound right?
No, that dos not sound right at all, if you wish to challenge this and test the they have a good battery or friend to boost your battery when it is not starting and try it again, do this several times, but this makes no sense to me, if you have a volt meter and know how to use it check your battery voltage when it is running, it should read 13.5 to 14 volts max, this is the nominal voltage you should read with the vehicle running.
