This truck is driving me crazy. Another no start
1997 cclb drw 4x4 zf5 242k
The truck wouldnt start unless you gave it a shot of start juice the it'd run perfect. I replaced the batteries and it started right up. Turned it off once and it turned right back on with no assistance. Drove it to the gas station and turned it off and then wouldn't start without go juice again.
What could this be? I have ruled out fuel pump, cps, PCM, idm, starter, batteries. My powers of reason point to wiring but why would it run great once started? Seems like if it was wiring it wouldn't run at all. Do idms get week as in if I did the 140v mod does that help starting?
It's not throwing any codes, no smoke is visible but in the garage you can feel the diesel I your eyes.
Thanks for any help, I don't want to throw parts at it I don't think that would change anything. A weak hpop wouldn't have let it start those couple times I'd imagine.
Any help is appreciated
