Starting Problem 02 Excursion

I continue to have this problem with startup. When starting the engine will start and run for about 5 seconds and then die. I then have to restart and usually have no problem. It is as if the engine is starved for fuel or chokes out. In the colder temps it is almost a given that this will happen. In cold temps I usually cycle the glowplugs a few times before starting.

Is this a telltale sign of something? Any comments appreciated.

It'll be interesting to hear, because we just had to rebuild our 02 excursion motor as we blew it up and now it's doing the same thing as yours!

Does yours sometimes not start or does it always start, but dies? Then starts and runs fine?

This is frustrating and we are as stumped as you - hope someone knows!

you may have a better chance taking yours in to where it was rebuilt and try to have work under warranty. If I take mine in I have a feeling I will get soaked and still have no definitive answers. I just thought I would take a shot on this forum to see if anyone had the same symptoms with a workable solution. Please check back if you get answers,,,,,, I will.
