Starting problems

Iam having a starting problem with my '95 not wanting to restart after it has been running. Starts fine in the morning, even at 20 degrees. Drives fine with plent of power. Can drive it all day long. Once it has warmed up and I turn off the ignition switch it cranks but will not start. Let the truck sit 5-6 hours and restarts with no problem. Just moved from Alaska and had no problems at all, even at -15 and not plugged in.

Could a CPS cause this? Just change one on my '99 E-350 because it had 155k on it. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Paul

Sorry, about the new thread. I just saw DeeselDorfs problems, and mine sound like the same symptoms.

Did not really find out what DeeselDorfs outcome was.

What I do not understand is how I have no problems starting in the cold but will not start after that.

Things that I have checked for:
-Oil level in HPOP good before start and after ran
-Wire harness connectors at valve covers look good
-Fuel filter and bowl clean

I did notice my fuel bowl filled up rather slow while having the cap off and filter out while turning over the motor. Would you know what the flow rate should be?
Thanks
Paul

uhh.. I dont know but maybe check the connectors underneath your truck on the starter? Mine is loose and i just punch it and i start up. But your truck still cranks but doesnt start so thats probly not it. sorry Maybe clean up your battery connections a little bit.

i have a 95 f-250 with almost the exact same problem. i have changed the fuel filter and replaced the crank sensor, yet it is not fixed. i resently obtained a code reader and will soon have the problem fixed. i will re-post as soon as i find and/or fix it.

What the heck is the IRP valve? Can you get codes if you don't have a check engine light? David

Sorry, Did not mean IRP I meant to say IPR.

I was not able to work on the truck this weekend. Had to go in to work for awhile and will be pulling 24 hour shifts (in military) thruout the week. Should be able to get to it Friday.

As for pulling codes with out a CEL (check engine light) Iam in the same situation. You should be able to pull them if you have the right reader. Not quit sure what most people are using on the earlier model trucks. I also have a 99 E-350 and have used an OBDII and it worked.

Will let you know on the outcome with the IPR repair later this week.
