2000 Hard Start cold and runs rough read message
I had several injectors that had the plunger and bores sticking. Dead skip cold and rolling skip warm. It did not matter if it ws plugged in or not. I purchased
8 reman injectors, glow plugs, valve cover gaskets and harness. Since I installed all this it doesn't want to start cold unless I plug it in. It will fire and fire several times
then may start after several times but rough very rough. Vibrates, seems to skip. I let it get warm for 5 - 10 minutes shut it off and restart it runs great. If I plug it in starts fine. I tested glow plugs ok. Connected Ford IDS and performed tests. Passed all tests enven when it would not start. ICP 950 pounds cranking, injected passed all electrical tests. There was several codes in the system mostly EBP codes but also has P1280 ICP Sensor circuit low P603 Power interuption on KAPWR and P605 PCM memory failure. Cleared codes P1280 came back in continuos memory. I found a TSB relating to P1280 wire ends. Anybody have any ideas? I do not think it is related to the glow plugs but it is heat related. It also has new batteries and glow plug relay.
