6.0 won't start
I have a 2005 F350 with 6.0 power stroke. Started getting hard to start a couple of weeks ago, when it was cold, but ran fine otherwise. Started fine as long as the engine was warm during the day. Started plugging it in at night to keep it warm, started up perfect every morning. Figured it was the glow plugs so replaced them, but made no difference. Thought maybe it was the controller, but didn’t get a chance to change it before I drove it to work. It set for 7 hours and would not start at all. Plugged it in and let the motor get warm, but still didn’t start. I brought it home on a trailer, charged batteries, plugged heaters in overnight. Doesn’t even try to start now. Pulled out EGR valve and inspected the hole, no moisture, just suet. Cleaned the valve and re-installed and still didn’t start. Truck ran perfect before this…lots of power, no misses, no smoke, no smells. No water in oil, no oil in water.
Did notice it used 2 gallons of water exactly as I filled it with a gallon jug. Truck has 75,000 miles on it.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
