  1. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    So I go to leave work today and the truck just clicks! It has a pretty much brand new starter solenoid that I tried to jump with a screwdriver with no success. Tried tapping the starter with a hammer.... no success but you can ever so slightly hear the starter trying to turn. Tried jumping the...

    I just bought a new glow plug relay. It looks exactly like a starter solenoid I have. Any chance it's the exact same thing? I'd hate to blow the tips off my glow plugs but I could get my $55 back.

    Hi, I have a 96 7.3 and have had trouble starting it (0-30 degrees, colorado) I just replaced glow plugs, and relay last night, thinking today (30 degrees) would start right up like it did last year, but it didn't. Battery dies in about 3 attempts, If I jump the truck it will start. Here are...

    I am having trouble getting my 79 Bronco with a 95 Powerstroke Turbo Diesel started. I am thinking it is the glow plug relay, so I tested it today. Here are my results: You can see which post I am testing in the picture, with the voltage I am getting. Please keep in mind that my...

    I have looked through several threads before posting to determine I might need a glow plug relay. Well I bought one and still no starting, bought another today and still nothing. The glow plugs will heat up if I jump the posts on the relay with a screwdriver. I actually got this 2000 F350...

    My truck will not start (turns over) unless I plug it in for a couple hours. When it fails to start, it seems to be trying to run on less than 8 cylinders and produces white smoke. When plugged in, it starts and runs fine. I replaced the gpr with a Stancor. I checked the glow plug...
  7. 94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke Discussion
    OK so today I finished replacing my glow plugs and the wiring. When I would take the plugs out of the head the oil that was on it them smelled burnt. Yet the oil in the head was still good. Another question is what is the best Glow Plug relay (GPR) I don't want a cheap AutoZone one that fails...
  8. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Ok. Replaced my batteries last year and this year I have had to charge them a couple times. I thought it was due to truck sitting around and not running but my gpr proved different. I noticed after jumping my diesel it would run fine until I shut it off and tried restarting it would run the...
  9. 94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke Discussion
    I am looking to put in a manuel button for my glow plugs. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to set one up. I assume that I should go through the relay to make sure I don't overload anything, but I am not sure. I have a 95 ford f250 with a 7.3l turbo powerstroke.

    I have a 95 f-250 with a 7.3 powerstroke in it. I am not geting any power to my glow plugs at all. It is obveous that I need to replace my GPR, but I was wondering why when I arc the 2 large posts together it still does not heat the plugs. I have power coming in, but if I put a screwdriver...
