  1. 6.0 Motor problems
    I have a 06 f250 that doesn't want to start! I've looked through a bunch of posts and threads on here and other forums, and finding a lot of the same issues but seems like no one ever posted what it turned out to be. I've got it diagnosed (possibly incorrectly), and I don't have the money to...
  2. 6.9L IDI Diesels
    Bought or found an old truck? No key? You may be able to start it. If there is a block heater - plug it in. if the truck is older - you maybe able to engage the injection pump to allow diesel fuel to spray into the cylinders. And if you can get the starter to turn you are set. This example...
  3. Engine 911
    My Powerstroke will not start! I've been reading through these forums for advice for months after buying a 2001 7.3L Powerstroke. This is the first time I ended up in an emergency situation requiring me to post in the 911 section. I recently repaired some significant Oil, and water leaks...
  4. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    Well I have a truck that cranks for a bit before it starts when it has been sitting for a hour or so.. Thats around 60-70 degrees. The glow plugs are working, all brand new, good resistance, good relay. All of the cylinders have generally the same compression (checked by jumping solenoid) and no...

    I have a 97 7.3 and when I go to start my truck after it has sat for a while it will crank but not turn over and will push out white smoke. it starts fine after it has ran for any amount of time. I don't think it would be glow plugs seeing as i just got them replaced 6 months ago. any ideas?
  6. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    Okay so i just recently put new glow plugs in my 2000 7.3, bought a week ago. While I was in there I noticed oil in the turbo pipes and it seemed to be coming from the CCV so I rerouted it away and thought that would fix the little bit of white smoke I had seen. Now the truck pours white smoke...
  7. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    My truck is a little hard to start lately, new stancor gpr and glow plugs. Not sure the problem, and ideas? It has been in the 70s and 80s, not hard to start after warming up, but the initial starting is like 5-10seconds. Mornings I usually have to try 2 times to start.

  10. General 6.0L Discussion
    Ok so one day I go to start my truck ('05 Auto 350 112k) and everything works normal except it wont crank. I messed around with the shifter and it started right up in nutral. So I am thinking it is a switch on the shifter but not sure where that might be. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks...

    Hey guys. So I just raplaced passenger side to rocker arms and push rods. Put it all back together and it didn't start. Pulled valve cover off again to make sure the rockers were actually opening valves and they were. I tried to bleed air out of fuel system and it didn't seem to work. But 2...

  17. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    When I try to start my 2000 Excursion it sounds like the batteries are low. It turns over a little slow and hesitates and then starts and runs fine. The batteries are good and so is the starter and alternator. The air filter is a little dirty and will be changed tomorrow. Any ideas of what...

    I bought a '02 f250 with 238k miles a few weeks back. Started good when looking at it. Drove it home about 3 hours and the next day it didn't want to start. I have driven it once since bringing it home. Oh yeh, this is my first diesel, but I have been wrenching on gassers for over 20 years. Just...
