I am not a diesel person and am lost on new vehicle electronics. Step 1 — Check the batteries and connections It could be drained or dead. Reset the fuel pump shut-off switch, especially if the truck has received a sudden jolt, such as during an accident. The required time for the glow plugs to be energized decreases as the engine oil temperature and barometric pressure increase. Create your own new one.
The battery is the most common reason why your truck isn't starting. A minimum of 500 psi is required for injector operation. This light is used to indicate when to start the engine. If the glow plugs work, proceed to Step 5. At wide open throttle with a load i. The reason the Oil cooler gets restricted and clogs up is due to silicone sand in the coolant system. Most injector issues are noticeable at the beginning of a cold start up and will go away once the engine is warm.
The timeline shows that it takes less than 4 seconds to start and stabilize the injection control pressure. There are no warning signs for a clogged or restricted oil cooler but tests can be done to determine if a problem is there waiting to happen. This ensures that oil is available on initial start-ups. I have tested for a blown head gasket and replaced the raidator heater core thermastat and water pump and did and egr cooler by pass and no hoses are sucking shut and the heater doors and. If that doesn't work, say a prayer and check your bank balance, because you likely some serious engine work.
Check the connections on the battery terminals to make sure you have a good, solid connection. It has been a while but I think if you hook up to 5 ignition wire the marks will come up for you. Although the glow plugs aren't always essential for starting, they assist the process especially when the ambient temperature is very low. Then about the fourth try it started, but was idleing very low, and when I pushed the gas pedal it didn't do anything at all. This article applies to the Ford F-250 and F-350 2005-2014. Keep in mind that if the battery voltage drops below 9. In applications where performance has been increased via aftermarket components, cylinder pressures may rise beyond the limits of the head bolts, ultimately causing head gasket failures.
The problem is after the engine gets warmed up it starts missing at low rpm. At 325 hp and 560 lb-ft, the 6. Note the time in seconds from when the key is turned on and the glow plug relay energizes until the glow plug relay de-energizes. Make sure glow plug wiring is routed to avoid moving parts. The starter is responsible for cranking your engine to start it—often as it goes bad it needs more and more power to turn the motor over—so when you turn the key, all you'll get is a click or nothing. If ignored this can cause serious engine damage.
The 2007 had 54k miles on it and the first morning, the cold start was terrible. Once you have changed the fuel filter, attach a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel line. I thought it was because of the cold weather in Denver. The oil filter housing contains two critical valves: One is an oil change drain valve that opens when the oil filter is removed, allowing the oil to drain back into the pan; the other is an antidrainback valve that uses a one-way check valve to keep oil in the housing with the engine off and the filter installed. So once the P0301 is set it never turns off, except by code deletion procedure. Post a new thread in the 6.
When this occurs, throttle response will suffer and the turbocharger will take more time to spool. If the valve sticks in the open position, a loss of power may be experienced. Both are prone to failure, the common culprit being soot buildup. To access it, you'll need to remove the plastic cover that is held on with two bolts.

Wire Harness Chafing The root cause of many hard start, no start, and electrical issues is chafing of the wiring harness. Step 5 — Check fuel filters They could be dirty, clogged, or have water in them.
Check fuel quality, electric fuel pump pressure and fuel pump inlet restriction. If vehicle does not start, continue with other non-oil-related issues. There are many claims that the early 6 liters were the most problematic, though it is debatable if there truly is any significant correlation between model year and reliability. Bryan Wood The F-150 is a hard working truck, except for when it fails on the job and refuses to start. Ford diesel truck repair is a good opportunity. Every motor is comprised of several.
