I'M SORRY, another no start
Sorry guys, I know there's a ton on here about these and why they happen and you've given me all a ton to look for but I still haven't found anything so lets try some more specifics of my (well my neighbor's that I've been trying to help) problem.
2002, F250, 7.3L, Auto, 4X4
My neighbor rolled it on Christmas (merry merry right?). Got it back on it's wheels, drove it home. Drove it for the next month back and forth to work with no problems. He finally got a replacement truck, so the wrecked one sat for a week. It was taking up space in the driveway so he started it, let it warm up a bit, moved it forward 20 feet, and shut it off. He had an Edge module on it that he removed that night. We went to start it the next morning, and no go.
OK, here's what I've checked. It ran until the Edge module came off right? So I went back and went over every single sensor to make sure they were plugged back in and they were. Crank crank crank.....no start. Plugged the Edge module back in, same story. I had a scanner available, but it showed no codes. It is an '02 with the trans temp gauge so the tach doesn't move on crankup.
There is some smoke that comes out the exhaust, and in desperation we did try some "diesel safe" (yeah right) starting fluid. It spits and sputters like it wants to fire, but I figure it's just burning up the starting fluid.
I checked and we are getting fuel pressure at the bowl. I did remove and clean the HPOP reservoir and fuel filter housing. Again, checked that all the sensors were plugged in. When it acts like it wants to start, it sputters really bad like the injection timing is off......maybe cam sensor?? but wouldn't that throw a code?
Anyways, I have to try and get this thing going TODAY and I would appreciate any help you guys can give me.
