99 7.3 strange no start
My story starts about 2 months ago, starting became harder and harder, slower and slower, last friday it took a few cycles of the glow plugs, a few slow cranks, more cycles, then it would finally start, when I left work about 5 hours later it took about 2 cycles to get it started. It sat over the weekend, I went to start it monday and notice I had 0 electrical power, batteries were drained.
I bought 2 new batteries, still slow start, noticed starter was burning hot...and then...boom it started! I let it run a few minutes, shut it off, tried to start it again and nothing!
Bought a new starter, man does it crank fast compared to the old one!
Tried one final last resort, sprayed some starting fluid, it would run for a second, just off the fluid itself and that's it.
Also, when trying to start there is no smoke coming out the exhaust.
I have a TS-Chip, I've tried unplugging the chip, to no avail.
What could this be?
