Wont start after long drive, not heat related...
Hi, I have a Ford F350 7.3 Turbo Diesel. It’s been well maintained with the fuel filters and fuel pump as well as the gasket under the valve cover that supplies power to the fuel injectors having been replaced within the last year or so.
My problem is a bit frustrating. We use it as a service truck and we have one customer that is about an hour and a half away. We don’t visit them regularly but when we do, we always have a problem starting the truck for about 45 minutes after the drive.
I don’t think this is heat related as the truck runs strong beforehand as well as right after it starts. Also, we regularly use the truck for service locally so it basically runs strong all day, but in short trips of maybe 10 or 15 minutes.
I have unscrewed the gas cap, checked the fuel pressure and scanned the codes, kicked the living $hit out of the tires with no luck.
I'm not sure what else to do.
