Read every "no start" post!! still cant start!
Ok diesel heads,
I have a 99 f350 which ran great for a while then the transmission blew. so instead of fixing it like a normal person, i decided, screw it, ill just buy another one with an automatic tranny. well i got a really good deal on it for 900 dollars. so i cant get this one to start.
first of all the WTS light wouldnt come on, so i disconnected the fuel heater and then the WTS light does come on. SOOO....that lets me know that the guy didnt know too much about these trucks. on the other hand, I cant get it to start still.
I havent had time to check too many things on it quite yet but am open to suggestions as to what i should check first, second, and so on....i will say that even though i know youre not supposed to, i did spray a teeny little bit of ether in the air box and it still wouldnt start. also the number 22 fuse under the hood (which is the bottom fuse on the right row of the big fuses right?) is not blown. that seems wierd since the fuel heater was shorting out. i did replace the number 30 fuse under the dash and hasnt blown again when trying to start.
the batteries are almost brand new. the starter is cranking it pretty fast but still, the motor sounds weird like it has two regular cranks then one higher pitched crank if that makes any sense. probably nothing.
havent changed out the cps yet.
havent checked the hpop reservoir yet.
other than that i am lost. please please help a powerstroker out. i will gladly answer any questions i can for you when you have a problem thanks in advance.
