got it rebuilt, still no start!!!
Ok guys, i have a post with several threads from a few weeks ago. it laid out some information about what was going on with my truck. here it is in a nut shell:
I got a e99 and have a late 99.
im trying to get the e99 to run using parts from my late 99.
the e99 would crank but not start. so far ive replaced the following:
Glow plug relay
high pressure oil pump
fuses are good
i started with the obvious glow plug relay because it was the cheapest and easiest. i do not and have not had a good scanner on it. i do know that im getting compression because you can feel air coming out the tailpipe when its cranking. i changed the cps next because i know that it can cause a no start. the IDM i heard controls the injectors so i swapped them out. still no start. batteries were swapped so i got a faster crank; nothing. DID try ether, no start. the hpop i took off my other truck because i took the valve covers off the truck in question, and saw a bone dry valve (cavity)? so i assumed i wasnt getting any oil pressure. still no start. in fact when i got all that crap hooked back up after the hpop swap my glow plug light didnt come on. then i went and played around with a few connections, including the cps, which was plugged in but the sensor didnt "snap", so i snapped it in. and the glow plug lights came on and cycled off after a few seconds. BUT NO START. im running out of patience. any ideas my fellow dieselers?
