Won't start only when its hot????
I know, yet another no start thread. I have read a bunch of threads on here and most cover some of my problem, but not all.
I have had this 06 F350 since new. Its left me straned 5 times. I have replaced the cam sensor (factory warranty), EGR twice, second time removal for good with SCT tunes, oil pressure fitting, and seized belt tensioner. For the past year 150K - 172K mileage its been perfect. No issues at all. I use only DELO or ROTELLA full syn oil with NAPA filters. I also run Stanadyne fuel treatment and REV X. 2 bottles at every oil change since 120K.
All of a sudden last week, I was driving home from a road trip and I pulled in to get a drink. I shut it down after waiting 90 seconds for the turbo to cool a bit. Ran inside, came back out and it would'nt start. Cranked for only a short time, maybe 5 to 10 seconds and then stopped. I have been told its not good to crank and crank and crank these things. It usually fires right up within half second. So I sat there thinking of what to do and after about 5 minutes I tried the key again. It started. Not immediatly like usual, but within a couple seconds. I drove it home and parked it. I checked the oil and it was within a quart of full. The next morning I came out to go to work and it fired right up. Drove to work, ahut it down and tried to start it up again. No start. Let her sit for half a day in the 90 degree sun. Lunch time, she started. for the next few days it was the same. I never shut it off unless I was at work or home. I changed the oil and filters. Took it out to pick my daughter up and had to shut it down to go inside. Came back out and no start. Only waited a couple of minutes and tried again. This time she cranked for about 5 seconds and fired up. When running she runs fine. Its only a hot start thing I guess.
Any ideas??? Thanks all.
