Ever since I bought my truck, an 07' F250 Harley,used, it seemed to take too long cranking before it would start. I took it to a dealer thinking the 100,000 mile warranty would cover it. Well, long story short, at first they said it was a bad battery, which I thought was ridiculous, and after changing the battery they said it was a damaged IPR sensor. The also told me warranty only covered the motor and not any sensors or anything, and that Ford would pay for half as a good will gesture. Anyway, paid almost 300 when everything was said and done. Well when I got my truck back it would
still crank too long before it would start. (I compare it to a previous 06' F250 I had stolen, so I know how long it should take.) Anyway, I decided I would keep using it like that, since I need it to drive to work everyday and couldn't
afford to just leave it at a shop and be truck-less.
Well yesterday, after leaving work, where it started as usual, I drove about 45 minutes on the highway and stoped at Wallmart to return a movie. I literally shut-off the engine for only a minute, while I left the movie, and came back out to go home. Well I was surprised to find that the engine would crank but would not start. The tank was almost full, I checked
all obvious relays and fuses but could not find anything wrong.
Does anybody have any idea of what could have changed after only a 45 minute drive and having shut down the engine for only a minute? Right now the truck sits at home until I can get someone to take a look at it. What
do you think? HPOP? Crank Sensor? Any ideas or things I should check?
This is my first diesel so I'm trying to learn as much as possible, but still not nearly enough to troubleshoot something like this.
Sorry for the long post, but I'm pretty desparate. I appreciate your help, guys.
