didnt start this am LOL same old story dunno which verse

Went out to the truck, reached in and turned the key. Fired up so I turned to head to the fridge to get a dew for the roaad and it quit. Reached back in and cycled the switch a couple of times to warm the glow plugs. Never fired. I think the orilies alt is draining the batteries cause it turns over slow if it sits a couple of days. New batteries so I dont think thats the problem and it started right off anyway. I also checked the fuel bowl and its got fuel.
So its on the charger and there were no check enginelights. I'll check for ccodes tomorrow.

Did I hear that something will fry if theres low voltage and you start it? Also it has been turning over a longer before it starts lately.

I know its a long post but more info is better

Wow no help. Used to be that everyone helped everyone on hear. Seems like the org has went down hill.

(EDIT) I am apologizing to everyone in the org. that I may have offended. I was having a ruff day that day. I know its not a excuse but its mine. (I'm having to drive a 87 ranger rust bucket) Anyway please accept my apology.

Yes, if your batteries are old, everything suffers. I put a volt guage in my truck for that reason. Don't know why ford decided not to in these trucks. When the temp drops, if your batteries are old they could go south. Whats the temp where you are? Hows your oil? I recently switched to full synthetic becouse i was experiencing long crank times. Cleared right up.

Don't cry...............Remember this is the Holiday season and you posted on Friday nite. It only goes downhill when someone posts crap like this.

Oh and also don't forget this is a free site.....sometimes you get what you pay for.

So the ORG has gone downhill because you can't get a miracle answer in 5 minutes???? A 6.0 is not a 6.9l mechanical engine. A stall/no start could be caused by 10+ things. ICP issue, FICM, fuel issue, or an electrical problem. Any memory codes, ICP psi readings, FICM voltages????

No Ive seen several posts that have went unanswered for several days and even weeks. I know this is a free site. If you notice I have payed and help support the site. Its just when I first signed up anyone would help anyone. It doesnt seem that way anymore. If you think I'm wrong ok fine so be it but You can still find a number of posts that no one has answered. Heck I had to put something in smart *** like to get the posts I have gotten.
I also know there are no miracle answers. I have owned my truck for 4 years and it now has 198 thousand miles on it. I do my own work. Just looking for some friendly suggestions.
