I've recently purchased a '96 f-250 with a 7.3l powerstroke turbo diesel. Truck has 300,000 miles. The truck ran well once it started Really hard to start after sitting for a day or two.
Since I didn't know the maintenance history I decided to start with changing the glow plugs among other things. I did the passenger side 4 and now the motor skips.
If the plugs weren't screwed in far enough would this cause a problem? The cover is just sitting on there now and I am going to take it off to check the wiring. I suppose one of the caps could have come off or is not seated. Other than that, I am at a loss as to what could be the problem. These are new Bosch glow plugs from NAPA.
