2005 dead in driveway, wont start...

Ok
I have a 2005 F350. Started up the truck after work and heard a slight hicup but kept running. Turned it off and started it again seemed fine.
This morning went to start the truck and only cranks and has a little fire but will not run. Tried the pedal also but no luck....
Anybody have any ideas?

It will get towed to the dealer tomorrow......


Oh the air and fuel filters are fairly fresh also.

Sounds like a fuel pressure problem to me. Although fords fuel system is different then Internationals so I cant be sure. Also after the wait to start light turns off try having someone spraying ether in the intake it should should start but dont kill it you should make it to the the dealership and save a tow bill. If it is out of warrenty that is, if not just let the tow truck come.

You should NEVER spray ether into a glowplug motor. I can't even believe a tech would say that. All you'll do is break piston lands and rings or lift the heads or cause other SERIOUS motor damage. Sounds like an HPOP problem which is very common with the 05 motors.

Ether?? Never in to the world of glowplugs my friend.. It maybe the HPOP as NPCC said or maybe theirs somethin with the Fuel thats causing her not to fire. She turns over and fires a little bits sounds to me like little or no fuel in the engine.. Spray some WD-40 in her see what happens

If the HPOP/STC fitting has malfunctioned then the injectors won't fire or will barely have enough oil pressure to fire an injector, i.e. the no fuel problem. Sometimes they will maintain enough pressure to run at engine speed but it will fail and leave you stranded.

Ok maybe I shouldnt have posted that in a public forum but when used correctly ether (actually I use contact cleaner) will not cause any problems if the glow plugs are off this is why I said wait till after the wait to start light goes out the glow plugs turn of at the same time as the light. As for the hpop or stc. If the pump fails no start no hiccup. If the stc fails if its a minor failure it might start when cold but not when hot. If its a major failure it will not start at all. If it was a minor failure and you let the engine cool off it will have a very long crank (up to 30 seconds) then a rough idle for a second or two but I would not call this a single hiccup.

Usually, it is either the High Pressure Oil Supply (fuel) OR a stuck open EGR. Both can cause almost the exact same problem.

If it turns out to be a stuck open EGR, the final cure will be not to overfill the Oil on the Oil Changes - This is a very common problem on Ford and GM diesels with "Stuck EGRs" - too much oil in the crank case.
