NEED HELP FAST. No start after oil change.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Help please, I have to go to work in 2.5hrs. Early 99 PS. I just changed my oil, started to make sure that it was topped off. Took a couple extra turns to start but ran fine. Ran for a minute then shut it off. Now it will crank but no start. PLEASE, oh great ford Gurus help this lowly nube before I get the PSD flu and have to call in sick.

Check the oil level in the HPOP ( High Pressure Oil Pump).

It was up an hour maybe 1.5. They batteries say they are about 5 yrs old so I'll be suprized if they are both still good. I've never had one last longer than 4. I'm new to the 24v thing as this is my first diesel. I put a jumper cable to my chevy on one battery and a 10a charger on the other for about an hour. Any tips for jumping this thing if it happens again? Thanks for the quick replies.

it's not a 24v system, just 12v wired in a series so you get more amps for cranking and such...

I learned that with really dead batteries teh easiest way to start is to either put jumpercables on and leave car that is doing the jumping running for about 1/2 hr or pull cables off batteries any attach a good battery.

One good battery seems to work better than 1 good and 2 dead batteries, lol...
