Starts and immediately dies.

My 95 powerstroke has been starting up just fine. I went to start it yesterday and it wouldn't turn over. I have a brand new starter and batteries. I sprayed some starter fluid in and it turned over, but immediately died. Any advice?

Do not spray starting fluid.

It was a cold start, about 30 degrees, I let the glow plugs warm up for about 10 minutes.

/\ +1 Don't spray starter fluid unless you deactivate your glow plugs.

Start with the simple things first. Is the Fuel Bowl full of fuel? Is your tach moving while its cranking? Is your wait to start light on before cranking?

glow plugs don't run 10 minutes non stop.
So it would not crank at all at first? No rotation of the crank shaft?

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

I'm new to working on vehicles, and I ask a lot of dumb questions, but why don't you spray starting fluid with the glow plugs in?

The starting fluid will go directly into the chambers which happen to have the intake valve open. The glow plugs in those chambers will immediately ignite the starting fluid. The resulting blast will blow out through those intake ports and up to the air intake. It's been known to blow up some fellas' air boxes. Thus, it is not a dumb question (it would only be dumb if you ignored the admonition....).

Starting fluid is really intended for spark-ignition (gasoline, etc.) engines, where the spark occurs (plus or minus a few degrees) right when the piston is moving from the compression to the power stroke, because it ignites so easily, even with weak spark. It does work on compression-ignition (i.e. diesel) engines, but only when allowed to stay in the chamber until the transition between the compression and power strokes.
