95 7.3 PSD starting problems
I am new the the deisel world and I just bought a 1995 F250 PSD. I have had this truck for 1 month and about 1 week ago I began having problems starting it.
It starts great when it has been turned off for at least 4-5 hours but if I turn it off and go into the store or a restauraunt and come out to try and start it after it has been turned off for 15min-1hr it cranks but wont start. It seems like the fuel is not getting to the engine or it is not combusting fast enough to start. I have been spraying engine starter in the air intake and that has been working but this is obviously not a long term fix.
The glow plugs were replace before I bought it so I dont believe that to be the problem. I read on another thread about Cetane booster helping combustion. So I added some last night when I filled up, but it has not been long enough for me to tell if this is the fix or not.
I love this truck and any help in diagnosing the problem will be much appreciated.
