Starting problem with 7.3 PSD stick shift.
I've just got my F250 7.3 not so long ago. I spent a lots of time to look aroundand buy someting worth it. I like stick shift a lot, and here in SoCal its not easy to find one. Anyway, the truck looks pretty clean and stock. When I bought it it started easy.
Last few days of use it started to develop some starting issues.
Turned the key, wait for lights, everything looked ok, time to start=> didn`t crank. I heard one click, thats all. After couple of try it did fired up and run good. Next day, first turn and it started up. Same afternoon, needed a few try to start.Yeserday sit at the parking lot about 10 minutes, probably tried 15 times, twice it had starter going a little but stopped. Sit few minutes, turned key again it fired up no problem.This morning 2nd try and was running good.
If you have anybody some ide where to start to look. It seems some kind of electrical problem. I`m gonna check battery, connections and starter tonight.
I read a lots of thread about starting problem, and have a little idea now, but if any of you had someting like what I wrote please help me out.
Thanks for reading,
