Why Won't You Start?!?!?!
New to the forum, and thank god i found it! Just bought my first Ford Diesel (01 Excursion 130k miles). Bought it to tow boat and trailers around, but has turned into my daily driver.
For some reason getting the Excursion started has become almost impossible. It took me 10 min to get it started this morning, and even when it is warm, it still needs to crank for about 30 sec. to get her running.
First guess was fuel pump, but when i turn the key on, the pump turns on and has pressure when i turned the fuel drain lever by the fuel filter.
Maybe glow plugs... was 75 deg when i tried to start it.
Wait to starts light comes on for 10 sec.
runs perfect once it is started.
reprogrammed it back to stock settings
no fuses are blown
cranks no problem.... just no fire
I have only owned one other diesel.... and it was a 93 dodge, with none of these craxy sensores on it. So i am a real rookie when it comes to these engines.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
