96 F350 7.3

This is my first diesel truck and the only one I've ever wanted. Finally found one clean on the inside and a brand new motor just put in. It had 1400 miles on it when I got it now after a trip to the river it got just under 5000.
Thursday morning I went outside (28°) and it wouldn't start. Turned over but no fire. Left it alone till that afternoon. Tried it again, same thing. Found the plug Friday afternoon and plugged it up. This morning (Saturday) same thing, turns over, no fire. I've been reading quite a bit of other people's issues and fixes with similar problems so I'm going to try some stuff. Any help would be awesome. Thanks for reading.

Re: 96 F350 7.3

Is the wait to start light coming on, if not unplug the fuel bowl heater and check fuse 22 under the hood.

If the light is coming on is there smoke present at the tail pipe. If not check the CPS and verify the hpop reservoir has oil in it. Also check the IPR connector an unplug the ICP sensor an try again.

An maybe @Sbluke55, or @tjctransport can move this to the correct spot for more views an help. Site problems prolly not the best place to post FYI

Re: 96 F350 7.3

You need to see if the block heater was reconnected to the cord. The heater is right above the oil filter.

My first guess is the glow plug relay and that the block heater isn't connected.

No problem, but this is a 96, not a 99 through current

Re: 96 F350 7.3

i fingered that.


the parental units beat me up this am, then we had a disagreement about money as i was leaving.
they have" too much money" in the checking account, and wanted to give me a check for 5 grand to "help pay bills" i offered to transfer it to savings, and was told "i already wrote the check, and am not going to void it" .
i told them to take the money and go somewhere for the winter, and the answer i got was "can't. all our friends are dead".

Re: 96 F350 7.3

They might have a pretty good point there. Tell them to go to Hedenism 3

Enjoy them while you can Tom. You'll miss them when they're gone.
Mom's still here physically, mentally not so much.
Kinda like you @tjctransport
