Your heater plugs one or two might be faulty
dont try to start it when heater light goes out wait for 20 or 30 seconds more and then try start .reason for this is the heater plugs are still heating after light goes out and therefore more heat for cold start goodluck

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.

Truck just died at stop sign a block from home and will not start


assuming the vehicle is a diesel because you say you drained the water separator ? What engine ? What fuel pressure does it have to the injectors ? Do the injectors fire ?
Ford 7 3 powerstroke crank no start due to low icp injection pressure...
Do you know how to trouble shoot diesel engines ? Your best bet take it to a qualified repair shop .

Does a toyota hilux surf 1995 diesel have spark plugs and points as in the days of yore??


Diesel engines don't have spark plugs. They use compression and heat to fire the diesel. Most diesel engines have glow plugs which are designed to preheat the combustion chamber to help burn the diesel fuel when you start it up. Hope this helps.

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump


Fill your fuel filter all the way up and take precaution not to get any air into pump. Try this several times. Once you get air into some pumps it can be very hard to bleed it off. There should be some way to bleed. Look on pump for bleeder.

It's a 1990 Toyota HiluX surf. Can't start it, yet the day before running fine.


a glo plug is basically a heating element that heats up the cylinders to allow for easy starting of a diesel engine. there should be one per cylinder. if it is a diesel, you could have an air bubble in the fuel system, which will cause it not to start. You would need to take it to a shop to bleed the fuel system.

Won't start, turns over but will not fire


check OBD1 for trouble codes
battery
air
fuel
spark
if you have engine cranking over and ample fuel, air and spark, time to look at the crank sensor. Rocks kicked up like to destroy them.
Again your post lacks lots of important details ie;
what size engine, when did it start giving trouble and was there anything leading up to its failure?
