DI have a 1983 ford f250 with 6.9 diesel engine. The previous owner told me that the front fuel tank did not work; he said that he was running the truck on the front tank once and that the truck started...

have you looked into the injectors, or injector balance? glow plugs just preheat the cylinders before you start turning the engine over. if the injectors are dumping too much fuel it will run rich and blow black smoke, lean it will dump white smoke, same as if it has an internal coolant leak, but smell different. Ford has had problems with EGR systems on some of their diesels, being an older truck how many miles is on it? and the front fuel tank could have a bad fuel pump, pretty common for them to do what you have described. Also might want to have the timing looked at on it! It ignites off of pressure, and if the timing is off it will adversely affect the ignition of the fuel which will make for hard starts, and poor running. there is a lot that needs to be looked at to figure this one out! could be quite a few different things. Good luck!

Shes not far wronghere ,you sure this is right a nearly 7 litre diesel engine ?? we use engine this size to pull 44 tons and here is one in a small pick up truck,anyway boss or is that the mrs? ha ha i got rid of mine sent her to live back in the uk with herdaughter ,instant baby sitter/minder brilliant well my money pit is a 1994 jagaur 4 litre auto but enough said their now as for this one then without my head under the hood or bonnet as i call it and please remember colour is spelt colour not color ,i suspect that their is something seriously wrong here and my first suspect without having a good look and sniffing its backside ---is the valve guide seals are worn and its drawing in oil down the valve guides ,the hard starting ? need to think a bit more here as if the block warmer is left in it starts then it could be a bit low on compression which could be the rings or the valve seats .If you was just around the corner i would have a look for free but iam in spain escaping the rising religious torment from the burka brigade like the rest of us brits who are now queing up to escape to europe ,then try to smuggle ourselves back into the Uk and claim political assylum and get the social handouts denied to a native englishman .No with this one i must agree with the bosswoman here its obviously worn out and you would be better off with nice citreon berlingo or a VW caddy all motors diesel with manual gearbox but keep away from the renaults though as these are good mechanicly but the electronics?? No in aqll honesty here i do feel that even without looking at this vehicle i think its worn out and its going to cost a few shekels to put right to say the least so as and when you get the goverment buy back against a new vehicle then trade it in iam sorry i cannot be more helpfull here but as the old saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words .

86 Ford truck WONT start

Sounds like bad advice. If your glow plugs are bad, the last thing you want to do is try to start it. Remember, diesel engines use these glow plugs like coils in a toaster. Since diesel is harder to burn than gasoline, the glow plugs heat up to a combustible temperature, allowing the diesel to ignite and your vehicle to start. I don't know the reprocussions of trying to start it without them working...but it can't be good.

Truck fails to start

The 01 DuraMax trucks do not have a block heater, unless they were special ordered with one. Just turn the key to the on position a few times before you try to crank it, and hold the accelerator partially down while doing it. However, don't hold the accelerator if it starts to crank, it DOES need a minute to warm up before being revved. Also, use a diesel treatment when its cold, it helps a lot.

Hard starting Ford Diesel

HAd the same problem turned out to be the fuel tank selector vlv not sealing off m/t tank on return line so when truck sat cold fuel would drain off injectors making me reprime injectors (airbound)
found this by dumb luck I got a hole punched in front tank (muddin )so I removed it and ran off back tank I observed fuel draining out unhooked return line next morning
replaced valve (and tank) problem went away
Disected old vlv (broken O-Ring)

by the way quick way to ck glow plugs ,What's your voltmeter on your dash doing when wait to start just goes out -If it's bouncing There workin
