Noob here...recently bought a 1994 F250 4x4 w/ 7.3 IDI turbo diesel w/ fisher MM plow to plow my private drive in Maine....
Its been starting and plowing fine (unplugged w/o block heater) while the temps have been between 30-45 degrees F and last night it was going to be in the mid-teens and had snowed all day so I plugged it in overnight....
This morning at ~5:45am
Put key in - let glow plugs engage ~30sec then they turn out - go to turn over and nothing... just the ENGINE TEMP light comes on....?
Is it indicating too cold or too hot?
the block heater "plug" is working
But it will not crank does not even try....Any assistance is appreciated as I could have burned that thing to the ground I was so pissed this morning,,, but it doesn't take long to cool off in Maine
and I'm back to my senses
Thanks and glad to be part of the forum.
