F350 cranks really slow/no start
I have a 2006 F-350 6.0, that ran rough to begin with but now it will crank but won't start. I also noticed it cranks very slow and there is no smoke in the exhaust. It appears to not even want to, never sputters or catches ever. Just a really slow crank and i don't want to keep trying to turn it over. I had a low boost problem so I removed and rebuilt the turbo, I also put a brand new FICM on it, New mass air sensor in. The batteries ( bought 7/12) have been removed twice and checked and charged once at Advanced auto and the second time by me using a trickle charger both for 24 hours. I do have a little above the E on the fuel gauge (I've been told that it probably needs some go juice). I can remove the fuel filter and check for fuel flow also because there is no smell of diesel even after numerous cranks of the motor. I was also thinking it might just be a week starter as it did appear to smoke once during an attempt to start it but that could just be from over use.
I realize this might be confusing so if you have an question just hit me up.
