stroker wont start

I parked my truck last saturday afternoon and tried to start it monday and all it would do was crank, the tach was working but i changed the cps anyway because i had a spare, its been pouring out alot of white smoke when i've started it in the past few weeks i dont know if this is somehow related, anyway, i noticed the fuel heater in the filter housing had somehow come unplugged i plugged it in and it kept blowing the fuse so i unplugged it again, it still will not start i put a new glow plug relay on it and still nothing so i thought maybe since the fuel heater was unplugged the fuel could be gelled in the filter so i took it out and drained it and it didnt help, it does seem like it tries to fire about every two or three cranks but it wont, i have to haul some cattle this weekend and need to have this truck going any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

i've got another problem now, i tried starting my truck earlier and it is leaking fuel very badly somewhere, it is dripping down in between the motor and transmission when you crank on it, and it still wont start, looked all over and cant find the leak but from looking at the puddle its got to be a pretty big one, any help would be greatly appreciated i need to use this truck thanks

i have a 2000 f250 and mine would leak fuel to when i would first start it in the mornings.this would only happen when it was pretty cold ( 0-15 degrees F). it stopped doing this when i put the winter grade in it. so the fuel leak may not really be much of a problem. just wondering if you have a block heater?

check oil level and quality first, has to have it , far as fuel leak goes ,it would have to be a very substantial leak to keep it from running if you know someone with a scaner pull codes also ,saves alot of time sometimes

stroker won't start

Hmm maybe you answered your own question. Fuel heater unplugged. When I plugged it back in the fuse blew. So I unplugged it. I would start there. Replace the Fuel Heater. Or trace the wires to the Fuel Heater to see if one of them is shorted out. But I bet that maybe your problem.

I got it going again, I had a bad fuel leak because when I put my filter back on I pinched the o ring that sealed it and it was spraying out when I cranked on it, I feel stupid for not catching this but I'm putting it on here in case anybody else has the same problem always check around the filter first and have someone else help you so they can crank it and you can check for leaks, it's pretty hard to do yourself. As for the fuel heater, I dont know I havent got the new one on it yet,it's going on tommorow, I hope it is all that caused all of this, Just wanted to say thanks for your help you guys are great
