Help!!! 96 7.3 no start, daliy driver
Hey guys , o.k. yesterday very cold out in the am . and I did 'nt plug the block heater the night before because I did'nt think i'd need to go anywhere in the am. Woke and surprise my daughter needed a ride. So out to start the truck I went. I knew it would be a difficult start as the glow plugs a shot . Cycled through the glow plugs a few times, Cranked motor over and i got the usual smoke from un burnt fuel coming out from under the hood and tail pipe, continued to cycle glow plugs a few more times and did get it to fireup a short burst (as it usually does when this cold and no block heat the night before) I continued to cycle glows , and crank over till i run the batteries down and had to charge them. tried all day and could not get it to fire over. so I drained the fuel filter housing till empty , closed drain valve and tried to restart with no luck and fuel filter housing would not fill with fuel , checked all fuses pertaining to injectors, fuel, checked glow plug relay etc. all good so I changed out the fuel pump today and the fuel filter housing is very slow to fill up. I cranked it on and off for about 3-5 min and the fuel is just above where the bottom of where the base of the filter rests. is this normal to take this long to fill, any Ideas where to go next? oil is full also This is my daily driver and i need it. Cant afford to loose work. Oh yeh. Just to let you know tech doesn't move , but every so slightly when i crank it over if this means anything thought I read it somewhere in this forum with this issue.?
