I was having a cold cranking problem, where when I finally got it cranked it would pour white smoke. I ended up replacing the glow plugs and the uvch's. Now I cant get it to crank. It will turn over but will not fire. Any suggestions of things to look for?
The only thing I know is that its not fueling. while it is turning over, there is barely even a fuel smell in or around the truck. I just have no clue where to start with why it is not fueling. A friend suggested maybe the HPOP lost its prime? The truck was torn down with no valve covers and the injectors unplugged for about 12 hours. Maybe that will help a little bit.
You need to have a cylinder contribution test ran for the injectors. A buzz test just tells you the solenoids are clicking, not that the injector is good... And if your getting smoke on start up, your obviously getting fuel......
