97 PSD, won't start
I have a 97 F250, the other day I fired it up in the morning, went in the house, and when I came back out it was stalled. Up until now there were no issues, plenty power, never stalled, never ran rough; only thing I ever noticed was a 8 mpg loss.
I changed the fuel filter and added Diesel 911, that didn't fix it. So I changed the CPS, and that didn't help either.
The engine does turn over. When I crank it over, the tach twitches but really doesn't move. The other day it was registering a couple hundred rpms, but now nothing. I have been reading other posts and the tach question seems to come up a lot, I don't know what it means.
The oil pressure gauge registers sometimes, but it may take a couple times of cranking before it shoots up to "normal". Also I don't know if the gauge reads pressure from the HPOP or the pan.
I really don't know much about diesels yet, so I was hoping someone might be able to give me some direction. Thanks.
