Question about 1993 Ford F350

1 Answer

1993 E-350 Ford Diesel. Problem starting in hot weather

The engine turns over but it won't start. This happens intermittenly approx. 2-3 times a week usually in hot weather. I lift the hood and wait approx. 5-15 minutes and then it starts. Any suggestions on what could be causing this problem? Thank you!

Possible connection but not sure: Light on the shift lever cycles on and off from time to time -- if slightly rev engine, it goes away.

Replaced fuel pump but it won't start it will crank but it won't start


when you have your hood up in the air can you hear the starter trying to make a clicking sound or no sound at all with the starter ? Starters also go bad too and some times it is intermitten some times as well. You can use a multimeter if you know how to use one that you can use one to test the starter red hot plug from the battery to it.

The issue may be the alternator is going out.If an Autozone or Advanced auto is in your area usually they will test these for you at no charge. Would have the system tested multiple times because it may pass once then fail the next. If it repeatedly still passes. There may be an wiring problem at the pigtail plug of the alternator.

Car not starting - Intermittent


intermitten problems are the worse, when it wont start check fuel pressure with a gauge, and then check for spark, i have spent days on problems such as this, what you have to find is what is missing, fuel ,spark, is maybe coolant leaking into one or more cyls, i have seen air in the fuel system that only cause problems when under hood temp is high, open the hood and it cools enough to to start, hope this helps
