06 No start

Hey guys looking at buying a truck and can get a killer deal on it but owner is saying it wont start now. It originally started off with a Hard cold starts but was fine once warm, Now he is saying that it wont start but if he soaks a rag of iesel and holds it in front of the air cleaner itll crank over??? Does this sound right? He claims its the injectors but he hasnt had it looked at? What should I be looking at on this can get a great deal on it?

Can you pull any codes?

A rag soaked in diesel isn't going to start anything. A diesel engine doesn't burn the vapor from diesel. Now maybe he is using starting fluid (No NO NO NO) WD40 can be used to start a diesel safely in a pinch. I would suspect FICM problems.

Still thats a pig in a poke. It's very common on Craigs List to have someone list a car that has a huge problem. The way the scam goes is like this. Car has a terminal problem like bent valves, head gaskets, bearings etc etc. They disable the car so it won’t turn over or some other problem that is simple to fix, but in any case you can’t start it up to check it out before you buy it. They then tell you it’s a simple fix and the know it will run ,BUT they don’t have the time to mess with it and will make you a great deal on it. You take it home and fix the obvious problem then you find out you got screwed for a terminal problem. GOOD LUCK.

I bought a truck from a dealer for $6-7K under blue book.... started with "deathwobble"(new tires fixed it) then "no start when hot"- replaced both dummy plugs and standpipes and STC fitting, literally as soon as I started after the dummy plugs and standpipes, I had a vacuum leak in the hubs, maybe coincidence but I washed the back of the wheels and its gone, still think I got a good deal, all labor on my behalf and cheap parts, if I had to have someone do it..... not so good a deal

Well I can save about $14k on it from blue book price, I've heard it run over the phone about a week ago and was talking to the guy while he was driving it. Now yes I know he could of lied about it being the actual truck, but this isnt a craigslist deal either. Im leaning towards its a FICM problem cause would injectors really all just go out overnight and not let it start the next morning? If it was to start off of say some sort of starting fluid (wd40) would that be the sign of bad injectors or FICM?

the guy is also selling it just for his payoff value, he lost his job and cant afford it so he has about 30 days to get rid of it before they just repo it instead. So he's not trying to get rich off of it.
