No start

Friend of mine just changed fuel filters on his 92 f250 IDI. He has put apox 300 miles on it sence. Today he stopped to put fuel in it, he started it up, and said it went to a "high idle" and then it died, and will not start. He says that it will spin over fine, but if he sprays alittle starting fluid to it, it lugs down, and still no start. He knows to be easy with the starting fluid. I told him to see if its getting fuel past the pump, if so, take a line loose at an injector, see if its getting fuel there......What else? I just dont know enough about the idi to tell him anymore

if you shut it down for filling, the engine should be warm enough. wonder if the fuel pump is pumping. and what tank level was it at?


sending unit might have got air in the lines if the pick up tube is bad.

Even with that being done, why would the engine bog down when starting fluid is shot to it?

either supply pump or injection pump bad , as said before check the line coming from the filter housing to the injection pump and make sure you have supply fuel , if so injection pump is bad , not sure what all the is it smoking talk about , but as hot as it is right now here , glow plugs ,etc. isnt gonna make a difference , if this idi has fuel it will start

he got it started.....the frt tank was empty, so he flipped it over to the rear...which was almost empty...filled up the frt tank and never swapped them....

Still dont understand why the engine would bog down on the starting fluid...he "said" they didnt drown it, just a short shot to see if it would fire...

its an auto
