1999 F250 XL CC LB Suddenly Died, Won't Start
Hey guys, I guess it is my turn to ask for help. I started my truck outside and let it warm up for about 5 minutes in 20° sunny winter weather. Pulled out of my driveway and drove it about 200 feet when it suddenly died as if someone turned the key off. It will still crank over, but won't fire.
1. Checked that there was fuel in the fuel bowl and it is refilling.
2. Swapped out CPS, still won't start.
3. Checked to see if the ICP sensor was bad, no oil leaking through and wiring harness was clean.
4. Bought A.E. and ran it through, at first it had both the CPS and ICP trouble codes. Cleared the codes and it still won't start, but the codes haven't come back.
5. Did injector test and they all passed.
6. Found out I was a couple quarts low on oil (synthetic 0w40), filled thinking may it wasn't pushing enough pressure. Still no start.
7. Have two yellow top gel batteries, low voltage from cranking multiple times, trickle charged back up, still no start.
8. Checked glow plug relay (new as of five months ago) its getting power, and pushing power when key is turned on.
9. Drank some tequila. Still didn't start.
10. WTS does come on.
If you master tech's could help throw me some wisdom, I would appreciate it. This is my work truck, so it is beginning to be a bigger problem every day. I am new to diesel's, but grew up on gas engines, so I at least know the terms.
Please help. Thanks!
