Hello all, I am new to diesel trucks, I bought an 05 F-350, I have had it for a little over a year, with no problems. Today for the first time, I cannot start my truck. I turn the key, it fires for a second and shuts down. I have never had a problem starting it before. Yesterday I changed my oil, it ran fine after that, then this morning it wont start. Any ideas? It got down to maybe 15-20 degrees last night.

Any help is appreciated. Paul

Hey Paul, it's been a couple days since you posted this. 2 questions...Did you get her runnin'? If not, were you getting any check engine light or code? I had similar stuff with my 03, with no codes. I've got it running now, didn't know if you still needed any ideas. PM me if so. If you already have it running...congrats!
