Stumped

No Start Issue

I Have A 1996 250 2wd I Had To Replace The Cps And Glow Plug Selnoid. 10 Days Later No Start Lots Of White Smoke. I Had To Start It With Either, Not Good I Know. Now If I Don't Plug It In At Night It Won't Start Even When It Was 72 Degrees Out. Once It's Started No Problems. The Voltmeter Stays Low For A Few Minutes After It Is Started. So If I Can't Plug It In I Am Stuck. The Truck Is Bone Stock Running On B20 Biodiesel. Any Help Would Be Great.

Maybe Marc or one of the techs will see this in a few. Hope you get it figured out.


Cheap plug, check out the NC section if you have not already

I am located in Hickory NC. And again it was 48 degrees last night and no start without the spray. So I have got to find the problem out soon.

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance

It is normal for the volt meter to read low after starting, while the glow-plugs run their 90 second cycle. Have you replaced the plugs?
