my dad owns a 99" sd 7.3 (one of his company trucks)
he told me today that it wouldnt start
so i said...
pluged in? yes
wait to start? yes
then i said has it had trouble starting for a while now? no just this past week
so i said lets go look at it and it would turn over and it turns over quick enough and sounds like its trying to fire but dosent fire
so i said lets try the gpr
so i went to napa-closed
then autozone and they said whats a gpr? and i showed it to him and he said the starter selinoid and i said ?????????????????
and he got one-duralast looked simalar but it was olny 10 bucks and i was again like ????????????????????
so dad said yep!!! thats it so i changed it and nothin changed
called dads mechanic and he said the 7.3's dont have a gpr
he said they dont even have gp's, said they have some ordeal under the intake that dose somethan or another-i didnt pay much atention after he said 7.3's=no gp's
and i just pretty much just hung up on him
but when you turn the key on (idk what it is) there is a l black cylnder looking thing with a 1/4" hose or 2 comeing off of it that clicks real fast while the key is on
sorry for the hijack
