99 7.3 no start
My truck has had some issues starting. I thought they we're mostly cold related but today it wouldn't start. I let the glow plugs charge for a full minute and it almost turned over but didn't. I waited 30 seconds (didn't cycle glow plugs) tried again and same result. I then noticed a wiff of smoke coming from the engine. Popped the hood and there was a little smoke and a ticking noise coming from the center of my engine. Any ideas what this could be? Would my GPR be making a ticking noise if it was fried? Any help would be appreciated.
More info. The ticking noise is faint, I could not hear it in the cab or standing next to it in the garage, only when I popped the hood. The ticking starts shortly after I hear my glow plugs quit charging. I cannot see or tell exactly where it is coming from but it sounds like its coming just behind and below the black cover that says powerstroke turbo 7.3L on it, in the center of the engine.
