Question about Ford F-250

1 Answer

I have a 2006 F250 diesel an d it will not start. It would stutter when trying to start and then nothing. I ran the batteries down and replaced them as the old ones were 4 years old. The truck has been plugged in and the block heater is working. It is -25C outside and it will not fire up. Never had a problem before so this is puzzling. I am thinking of changing both fuel filters and possibly the crank sensor.

are the heater plugs ok? and also the EGR could be jammed shut in that temp.
Check to see if it is getting fuel or is not air locked somewhere, especially if it has been run low or out of fuel.

Stalling and stuttering at high speeds

You might have had some dirt in the lines or grime that was causing it two stall another thing is it could be the start of injectors needing to be replaced. I have had to put them on alot of 7.3 but at high miles there very good motors. If it starts acting up again I would check your fuel pump first as it will be cheaper cause injectors are not a cheap job good luck and let me know how it works out for you bud

2006 Expedition ran great, parked over night, would not start, battery checked Okay

See if you can jump start the car from another battery which is sound. If you can then the battery you have is rubbish and must be replaced.

It ran out of diesel fuel and now it wont crank what should i do

I would try filling the fuel filter up with diesel. If that doesnt do it dump a little gasoline down its throat.

If it actually wont crank,
" like the engine isnt being turned over by the starter" your battery's are hopefully dead.

You dont want to crank on a diesel starter for more than 30 seconds or you will burn them up. I was tought to try and start it for 30 seconds or so then let cool back down for 5 minutes.

Depending on how long you tried to start it you may have burnt the starter up but I doubt it. If its the starter I would guess its bound up. You can either tap on it with a hammer or take it out and clean it up and have it tested and put it back in or replace it. Good luck

I have a 2004 F-250 6.0 stuttering at start

FICM, fuel injector control module. About $800 installed by your dealer. They come blank and must be programed by the factory/dealer computer. This is the big silver box on the driver side valve cover. Check connections first. The FICM converts battery power (12.4 vdc) to 48 vdc for fire the injectors. Wont work if your batteries are not up to snuff. This is a common item to go bad on vehicles with this discrepancy. It can be bypassed (the injector heaters) by disconnectiong the alternator wire that leads to the passenger side battery (if its warm outside) it may start and get you to a dealer.
