2001 7.3 No Start??

2001 7.3 will not start

It seems as if it needs to cool down then it will start up again.

This is just normal daily driving too nothing intense no load

Try turning the key all power comes on ect. say wait to start then no wont start to turn over battery voltage is good no codes or nothing... any body have any idea on what this might be?

Sounds like what my '96 did when the cam position sensor went out.

I usually just pull the starter off and hook it to a battery charger. Or you could pull it and take it to a parts store like Autozone.

Start with the basics. Make sure your batteries are up to snuff and fully charged. You need at least 10.5 volts for the pcm to fire the injectors. So a draw would cause a no start. So check your connections if the bats are good. You can check the start soleniod its on the passenger side fenderwell. You should have 12 volts going to the starter side of the big post with the key turned to start. Check your oil level and make sure its ford diesel rated. Also check your fuel filter. Make sure you have fuel pressure just some things to look at.

Heat soak on the starter would be my first guess. Then I would look at the oil and fuel.

It seems Scuffy had a post about a month ago and listed like 3 or 5 things that it could be...

^ Once again Vital beats me to the punch.

The only thing I don't agree with is the voltage being down on the batt's if it restarts later after sitting. However, bad connections would definitely be a good place to start because it's a free fix, and even if it's not the problem it's always good to have clean terminals!
