Was low power - Now No Start?
I've got a 02 excursion that started having a problem about a month ago:
When the truck was cold, it would start ok but have no power at all, could not even move, until the engine warmed up for 5-10 min. Once the engine was warm, the engine had normal power and all was fine. Restarts on a warm engine never showed this problem.
The truck went in for the cam sensor recall and it had no effect on the problem. Starting yesterday the truck won't even start, just crank. I checked the oil, and it was low, so I put some in. I can't get a good reading since the truck is dead on a hill so I can't get a great dipstick reading. I checked the fuel filter to make sure I had fuel there and I do, and I put a new filter in while I was there. I verified that the fuel cut off had not tripped as well.
Any suggestions on what to check next? I saw something about the glow plug relay...not sure it explains this exactly, but it's easy to check so that's next.
The truck has ~70K on it, I've owned it since new and it gets it's regular maintenance.....
Thanks in advance for any advice!
