No start, low rev starter, rapid clicking from under dash
New to the forums and new to this truck as well. Early 99 F350. 6-speed manual 4x4. Guy I bought it from did hardly any maintance on it. Long story short, replaced o-rings on fuel lines, took care of MOST of the leaks, new CPS, new fuel filter and fresh oil change.
Go to start it this morning, turn the key to ON, hear a few clicks under the dash. (???) let the GP do their thing, wait an extra 20 - 30 sec after the wait to start light goes out, and it's slow to roll over. Hmm, OK put on a charger and took the car instead. Don't know how old the batteries are. (Probably few days older than dirt, but not orig) Gonna go to NAPA and get some new ones.
Had a problem with it yesterday, stopped to pick up something from the store was in maybe 30 min, truck didn't want to start. Seemed to roll over fine, tried to start it about four times, (off, wait 30 sec for GP after WTS light, roll it over) and the forth time it took, but low power (limp mode?) Restarted while rolling (didn';t wait after the WTS light) and it did just fine. turbo even started spooling earlier about 1600 rpm. Any ideas?
