Diesel in coolant Res and more!!

Went to start my 03 7.3 and it started but was rough and i herd a grinding sound. Turned off but the grinding sound kept going, it sounds like a electric motor spinning but not good sounding, so i pulled both positive's on the battery and it stopped. Now what??

The diesel in the coolant is injector cups and the grinding sound could be the starter stuck on or the electric vacuum pump running.

So pretty much dont start it, replace the cups and flush all the coolant? What does this cost? The truck only has 97,000 miles and was running great yesterday. This blows

The heads used to have to be removed but if you can find a machine shop/diesel shop with the tools then it can be performed in Chassis. I believe Rosewood diesel will rent the tools to you. You will need 8 new injector O-ring kits around $10 ea and 8 new cups around $10 each and then you just need a new radiator cap and coolant. You should probably change the thermostat and all hoses to ensure no issues in the future since the fuel will weaken the rubber. We charge 10 hours labor which is $750 plus parts so that should give you a good idea but those O-ring and cup prices will likely be higher since the shop will mark them up.

Thanks for all the help, it turned out to be the injector cups and the starter was sticking. Thanks to Ray Hansens Powerstroke repair out of Priest River ID he got me back up and running. 1300$ later, but we did all the cups so i should be good to go.
