Question about 2005 Ford F 350 Super Duty

1 Answer

I HAVE E 350 6.0 DISEL, Part of the time it will trun turn over real fast but will not crank, as the battery is getting weaker, it will start. it doesn't matter where it is cold or hot, i have used a scaner it does not show any codes, this happens one time twice in one day, then it may go 6 or 8 weeks & not happen again, i have taken it to a reg. diesel shop, (that is what they do all the time). they can't find what is going on, & they can't find any codes either. The engine has 210,000 miles on it. part of the time going down the road it seems to be missing like it has bad spark plugs wires ( I know a Diesel doesn't have any) any help?

When you say you're having a hard time starting it does that mean it cranks over fine but it just takes a while to start or does that mean the starter is dragging when you try to start it

93 Geo Storm standard Transmission 1.6 Engine Lately I have to push start it Replaced ignition switch Checked all the fuses Starters good Help 48 disabled female


bad fuel, is it old? fuel.
needs tuneup, air cleaner and spark plugs , at least.
if the starter cranks fast and dont' start,
but does push started. that means the spark is weak
when cranking, and marginal spark plugs can do that.
this car is really (under Geo snake skins) a
an Isuzu Impulse
and Isuzu is defunct there too. (double bad)

now my real guess......analysis...
im not sure your order stated.
the engine would not crank over with a key before the new switch or after?
and "starters good", does that mean , it still fails to crank start with key
but the hot wiring of starter does?
try this:
tell use what happens when you turn the key, is best.
I turn the key, and i get the dash board to light up,
lots of lights. and the CEL LaMP GLOWS.
the CEL lamp, means the ENGINE brain is alive.
then you turn the key to cranks (start) position.
  1. nothing happens.
  2. it only clicks
  3. it cranks slowly,
  4. it cranks fast, just like a new car does. fast. cranking.

1,2,3,4.?

and does jumper cable starts work>?
if this works , your battery is low. , discharged or dead, or bad.
if the battery keeps going low, its bad, or the alternator fails to charge the battery, or you have phantom drains , discharging it as you sleep.

my guess, (based on most common)
is #3, slow cranks, and spark plugs are long since gone.(fouled and gaps no longer in spec>)

Have a load test done on the batter to check for failing cells. For diesels to start any thing less than a fully charged battery good battery is a waste of time as the engine needs fast RPM to heat the air to ignite the fuel and slow rpm's just doesn't cut it.

When I turn the key to crank my Dodge Ram 2500, nothing happens.


Is this a manual or automatic tranny? I would be looking at the gearshift selector, did you try starting it in neutral, as opposed to park, if it's an auto, and how about a switch on the clutch pedal to prevent starting in gear, if it's a manual? How about wiring to the neutral safety start switch? Any fuses, circuit breakers been checked? What year truck?
I'm just throwing things out there, just to check before you spend any more money that you don't have to.
I could use a battery, right now- got an extra one?
:-)

Good luck and keep us posted.

When I turn the key it just clicks


The battery may have just been replaced, but have you checked the voltage lately?

This sounds like it may have a charging problem.

First, put the battery on a slow charger over night, and see if it will start the next morning.
If it sounds strong, but get weaker after running for a while, you'll want to check the output of the alternator.

You can take your Venture to a local autoparts store, and ask them to run a charging check for you.
