Helpp

I drove my truck to work this morning, cold start. I cycled the glow plugs a few times and it eventually started. that was at 0615. 1210 i get in my truck to start it and its cranks but doesnt turn over. I keep doing it and that crank gets weaker and weaker so i stopped. I know batterys are charged. I tried to jump anyway on drivers side battery didnt work. I just locked it up and came home.... any ideas???? The only thing funny i got going on is the starter cable broke and i slide underneath the truck whenever it falls of and hook it back on there good enough to starter up.. help please



If u dont wanna type call me. 7738926621 looie

Hmm well start with the basics first I guess and make sure your batteries are fully charged. You have plenty of fuel? Your oil is full?

Also check your fuses. Could be the fuel heater element fuse blown.

Okay make sure you don't have a drain on the starter or ignitions system. Do you have a meter? When cranking the starter check to make sure you battery voltage doesn't drop below 10.5 volts. Also drain you fuel filter housing and make sure when you crank the motor your housing is filling with fuel. Could be fuel pump.
