Temp gauge stays cold


If the thermostat is bad (i.e. stuck open at all times), this would allow coolant to circulate in the engine even when it is below the desired operating temperature. This leads to OVERcooling of the engine. You can either replace the thermostat as a first step or remove it and test it -- closed when cold, open when heated above 190-200F.

Tip

Easier starts in the cold temps.


If your getting hard or no starts in the winter/cold temps cycle the glow plugs 2-3 times. They are programmed to cycle up to 120 seconds or 2 minutes which in some cases isn't enough. Turn the key to ignition (not start) and allow the plugs to heat for about 90 seconds then back off again. Do this 2-3 times and your diesel should fire up. If extremely cold plug it in for an hour which should be enough to assist in starting.

2000 f350 diesel has a cold start problem i changed glow plugs did not solve the problem


There should be a delay (hold off) until the glow plugs have done theirwarm up thing. Usually a minute oe so. Don't immediately crank the engine. give it about 30 seconds in the on position before cranking.
The glow plugs are like the coils on an electric stove. The heat up is not instant alrhough a little faster.

Tow/haul light comes on gauge shows HOT


Does the trans fluid have a burnt smell and is it brown or dark brown as opposed to a red wine color? If this is the case then you may have a service issue caused by a clogged trans filter which is what this sounds a great deal like and the sooner you get the truck to the dealer or your mechanic the better as the trans in these are not cheap to rebuild or replace.

Manual heating system with automatic trans. 7.3 L Diesel, 45k miles


it may be your thermostat, the gauge on the dash is a dummy gauge, there is only three positions that it sees, dead cold, operating temp, and hot, so even though the needle looks fine it just means it s closer to operating temp then it is to cold,
