Engine Won't Start
So a couple months back we were getting some of our colder winter weather and snow, which we only get a couple times a year. So I plugged in my '96 powerstroke, but when I tired to start it, it would crank and then nothing. A couple times it tired to kick over but wouldn't start up all the way. After that nothing just cranking away never once starting up. I put it on a charger wondering if my batteries were low, still nothing.
Figuring it might be my glow plugs, I had already bought some to replace them, I decided to wait it out. Kept my batteries charged and then couple weeks back I changed my glow plugs, still nothing, it just cranks away and doesn't start up. Wondering if it was fuel related I drained the water out of the bowl and swapped my fuel filter. Still nothing, just cranks away and still doesn't even get close to trying to kick over.
I pulled my starter and got it tested wondering if that could be the issue, auto part store tested it and said it was good. Oil levels are good and I disconnected the ICP to make sure it wasn't causing any issues.
So far nothing has changed my symptoms, cranking away but not even starting to kick over anymore.
Still new to working on diesels, so starting to feel like I am just going blind hoping something pans out. Would greatly appreciate any direction or suggestions you all could give.
Thanks a bunch!
