No Start

I have a 2000 7.3 that was running fine. Truck was parked during work week. Temps dropped to 32 degrees. Then warmed to 65. This morning Truck started right up and ran for about 45 seconds without any problems. Then it just died. It turns over, getting fuel, but won't start. Wait to start light does not come on after this. Any ideas


also noticed 30 fuse was out, replaced it, and it blew again. Could this be a bad GPR? Also checked oil on HIGH PRESSURE, is a little low. Help!

I had this problem before. The cure for mine was the fuel bowl heater. There is a plug in the fuel bowl which is your fuel bowl heater. The plug is bad and all u have to do is pull the plug out and leave it unplugged and you should be good to go. The fuses shouldn't blow anymore and your truck should start right up. you can either replace the plug or leave it unplugged. i have had mine unplugged and havn't had any issues. Hope this helps you out

Thanks Luke I saw a post you had earlier, and that is exactly what I did. Unplugged it put in new fuse and truck started right up. Wait to start light is now works. Do you know the part number for the plug?

Well, I'm in South Texas, home of the Spurs. It doesn't too cold down here anyway. By disconnecting that plug, does that mean I can't plug in?
