Ok I think I'm in rite place. 2000 f250 7.3. Running too but now have problem with not wanting to start up. If I leave plugged in for 8 hrs. Starts rite up. If left unplugged at wrk with no electrical connection to connect will take 1/2 a can of starting fluid to start. They sed it was my glow plugs. Change em with genuine Ford parts. Does same thing. So???? Wait to life start wrks. So for must be next??? I put a screw driver to jump the gpr to see if it was the gpr. Nothing???
Give the above a read... one of the better cold weather aids write ups. You really don't want to be using starting fluid on these trucks for long. That isn't to say I haven't done it myself but how that stuff behaves at 180psi and 380psi is a big difference. Your rings definitely don't appreciate it. How many miles on the engine? How many miles on the injectors? How is the compression on the engine?
