I just bought my first powerstroke, had the cummins and duramax, now playing with a 7.3.
I'm having a hard time starting it, temps in the single digits to teens. When I turn the key overt for glow plugs to kick in, fuel starts pouring out from under it. I eventually got it to start yesterday and fuel stopped leaking. Today the fuel did the same thing. I have the block heater hooked up now and am going to try and see if that helps.
is this normal or am I having issues with fuel pump?
should I still have to hook it up even if the glow plugs are working properly? planning on putting a meter on them today to see if they even work.
more issues to discuss after this.
Thanks for any help. I haven't had the truck a week and want to make sure I'm not in for major trouble off the bat.
