Hello to all the great folks on the forum. My first post.
I've got a starting problem thats got me stumpted.
2000 F-250 7.3 powerstroke, 199K and only changed the water pump(1yr ago), stock chip
Friday morning I get in her and she does not start.
engine turns over but, No Start
In troubleshooting, i found that a 2 sec. shot of starting fluid, and she starts!
She runs, guns and drives normal turn it off and then on again, No Start unless i use starting fluid
Here's what i can tell you so far.
All fuses are good. injector relay exchanges with another same relay
Batterys are charged, clean terminals, disconnected for 30 min.
fuel pump sings with key on
no "check engine" lights are on, "Wait to start" light acts normal
50 miles into a motor oil changed and full tank of die$el
Changed CPS and can see movement on the tach
I have not checked for codes and my have erased them.
I have not changed the fuel filter in some time.
What is not working at start-up that seems to work while running?
Please help! I may have to saddle my horse and ride her work.
