Help I am confused over this issue!!!!
I have a 96 E-350 w/a 7.3L. On sat. I want to start the van and it developed a odd issue. It would crank and keep cranking. Even after I pulled the key. The cranking would stop about 10 sec later. I would have white or gray smoke come from the tail pipe. So I replace the solenoid on the starter thinking it was finally done. Still the same issue. So I called a friend for his advice, he said to replace the grounding wire between the body and battery. That 1 of his friends had the same issue and that corrected it. So I did and went inside to do other thing cause I was sick of messing with the van. So sun. morning I went out and tried to start the van and it fired. I tried it 3 more time and on the 3 time it acted up again. So I replace the ignition switch and checked the column to see if the column was the issue and still the same problem. The last time I fired the van up it cranked and cranked and cranked so I figure I should just pull the switch it should stop and guess what it did not. So now the issue is what could be wrong???? I am stumped, I have never run into an issue like this b4. Please help!!!!
Thanks in advance.
