Will not start with out plugging in.
I have looked through a lot of post and have been unable to find an answer.
I drive a 2002 F450 and live in Texas. Last winter I had to plug my truck in to get it to start in the mornings. I figured some of the glow plugs were bad, and since I did not use the truck that much it was not a problem. Then this summer it was in the high 90’s near 100F. The truck would not start, so I plugged it in and an hour later it started right up.
Now I have some money and going to do some work to my truck but have no idea what could be causing this issue. I know the previous owner used ether on it because he had drilled a hole in the air filter housing, and I have used it a couple of times when I was in a pinch and had to get it going quick.
Help what do I do? My mechanic says to sell it but that is not an option right now.
