1993 ford f250 7.3 liter diesel starting problems


It is worth ensuring the glow plugs are actually receiving current by attaching a test lamp during the starting process. Heater plug timer relays can cause problems.

A good cranking speed is necessary for good cold starting and also good injector spray patterns and break-off pressures. Bad spray patterns and low pressures, slow cranking and fuel drain-back are common problems.
Low compression pressures can also be a problem. If the other stuff has been checked and found to be ok it is worth having them tested.

I have a 1985 ford f250 diesel. It ran out of fuel and now I cannot start it. How can I get it started after running out of fuel


You have to bleed the AIR from the fuel system. there is a valve stem on the side of the fuel filter housing.crank engine a few turns then bleed the air. its easier with two people(1cranking engine while one bleeds the air).may have to do several times.

1985 ford f350 diesel will not allow the ignition to engage. Dash light says water in fuel. I put on a new fuel filter. Did not help. Can I bypass the sensor?


The Diesel engine doesn't have an ignition system. Also the dash light shouldn't cause it not to start? You said you changed the fuel filter right? After you started cranking it again did the lift pump fill the new filter up. I have had these before where the lift pumps go bad causing low lift pump pressure which causes the water in fuel light to be on. Did it die going down the road or did you shut it off and can't get it restarted.

My 84 ford f250 6.9 diesel. Starts and then dies and wont start.


could have a bad fuel transfer pump ( block mounted) or air getting into fuel system. This could be caused by a pin hole in the fuel lines ( supply or return) have someone crank it over for you while you press the shrader valeve on the fuel filter housing , see if you are getting fuel or air. Could also be an injection pump problem. Best thing would be to have it checked by a qualified diesel mechanic, as this could be caused by many different things. Kinda costly to throw parts at it on a guess without proper testing

7.3 rough idle


Gas or diesel having same problem, I'd start there to confirm fuel pressure . It may be pump running partially when cool, but when it heats up (the pump) it may be cutting out pressure wise. Not uncommon for a fuel pump to pump good when cold, then die once pump heats up from running. Still makes noise, but isn't supplying any or enough pressure.

Fuel problem, wont start


the pump is part of the filter/separator not in the tank no fuel will come out if filter is removed make sure there is fuel in the upper filter if there is the pump is ok it might be an oil pressure concern
