Welcome to the Org!Hey guys new to the forum. I have a 2000 ford excursion with a 7.3 diesel, it has some trouble starting even on a 70 degree day I have to crank for 30-40 seconds before it will start any advice?
Wow thats awesome! Hell of a truck. You've got some money sitting under your right foot, FYI.....It only has 50,000 original miles on it I have owned and babied it since I brought it new in 2000! Plenty of power otherwise I will look at how long since the last oil change and figure out how to check those sensors.
I checked the hpop level yesterday after it sat for a few days and it looked ok. It takes a while to crank over hot or cold but more so when cold. The batteries are only a year old and I leave a battery tender on it since I barley use it. I wasn't really sure what else to check. I wasn't getting 12 v reading on the gpr when I cycled the glow plugs ever after I swapped it out, I'm sure I'm testing it right because I tested it on my 99 powerstroke and it tested fine. As someone was saying at warm temps the glow plugs shouldn't have much of a effect anyway. I took it to the shop this morning and will update on what they find.I just asked you a few questions that will help narrow your search down a few posts up, and you never wrote back.
