Wont start.

Well I went out this morning and was going to go hunting and i try to start my truck and nothing. It will turn over but will not fire and if it does fire it will not stay running. I was thinking it was something with the glow plugs so I plugged my block heater in. Well, 5 hours on the heater and still just just turns over and wont fire. Now im thinking it is something with the fuel system. Any ideas?

Thanks for any help.

Wouldn't it eventually fire though?

I probably will hook it up to one tomorrow if I can get in touch with my buddy and this really makes me want my x3, I just ordered it Friday.

If would let it get all tosty with the block heater, then throw some jumper cables on it and crank, sometimes if the gpr is going out, you will kill the batterys trying to start it, and by the time its warm enough you dont have the voltage to start it anyways

Tried it and still nothing. It has been on the heater since 2:30 and it is now almost 9 (Alabama) and it still wont fire, just turns over.

GENTLEMEN, first of all, what is a "gpr"? I'm assuming you mean a GLOW PLUG RELAY? In my limited experience with 6.0L engines, glow plugs or the entire glow plug system for that matter has NEVER been the cause of a no-start.

Goose350, you summed it up pretty good when you stated, "Now im thinking it is something with the fuel system."

Well, there are a few things that will cause it not to get fuel. Firstly, lack of sufficient ICP (Injector Control Pressure) WILL cause the PCM not to command the injectors to fire. Usually, this problem causes a no-start/hard-start when the engine is warm. Secondly, a bad FICM (Fuel Injector Control Module) will definitely cause the engine to either run rough, or not start PERIOD. Thirdly, if either FICM SYNC or SYNC (or both) fails to read "yes" when the engine is cranked, the PCM won't command the injectors to fire because it doesn't know WHEN to fire. Lastly, if the fuel pump fails to deliver 56 psi of fuel to the secondary fuel filter housing when the engine is cranked over, your engine will eventually starve for fuel.

But without the use of a scan tool you are just pissing in the dark. The first step is to have it scanned to see what's missing from what I've mentioned above.
