I have f-350 7.3 diesel, I am having a problem (intermitten) sometimes it will not start, I have replaced the cam sensor 3 times, just recentley, still did not start, I pulled fuses and checked, i checked the relays, fuse-ingnition fuse Good fuel pump fuse good, I have even reset the fuel reset on passenre side. Last year my son had to tow me do to no start, he towed me about 15 miles, when i got home, just to check i attempted to start and it did, last week when it did not start, had to tow to my mechanich, before i towed ran it through computer no indications of anything wrong, no check engine. After towing, i left my mechanic called me and told me it started right up. Its driving me nuts, last year put on computer and it gave a injector pump code but, but never had a problem until recentley, does anybody have any advise, also is there a nuetral switch relay in the transmission, or a relay i can check. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

I have f-350 7.3 diesel, I am having a problem (intermitten) sometimes it will not start, I have replaced both batteries, starter and clutch neutral switch (6 speed manual). The problem is that it will not crank. Sometimes after towing, it will crank. Could this be a cam sensor, solenoid ord relay problem. These problems all started after haveing the clutch replaced. Ford technician told me the master cylinder shaft was putting pressure on the clutch switch and causing the problem, but after replacing the clutch switch the problem began afer arriving at home and turning off the engine. The truck immediately would not crank again.

I have a 2003 7.3 diesel power stroke that will only start when it has been plugged in for several hours or more, then starts hard. On the computer, the glow plugs are fine. We have replaced the high pressure fuel pump and put gaskets on the reservoir tank, checked pressure on the tube in the reservoir tank, etc. Plugged it back into the computer after these items were replaced and no codes are coming up. Still won't start. Any ideas?

I am having the same problem as Bob #14. I have replaced the fuel pump, and fuel. When the truck runs 15-20 minutes it will slow to 20 mph. When it sits for a while I can crank it back up and it will creep at 20-25 mph. WHen you press the gas pedal it will billow white smoke in neutral. WHen the truck acts up and you turn the switch off and then back on the fuel pump will raise cane. Truck starts fast, cranks good but 15 -20 minutes until warm it will act up. Any help would be appreciated. Jimmy Banks 205-256-315-9949 for anyone who has any information.

I have a 2002 7.3 diesel engine ford f-350. When I try to start it, it cranks but then it drains the battery down and won't start. I've checked the battery-full charge. I took off the starter and had it tested-it's fine. The glow plugs look normal. Any ideas?

fuel gauge, driving it before it warms up, stopping the engine before it cools off, bad fuel & low power engines that needs overhaul for: injectors, pump, engine.

READ THIS IF YOUR TRUCK IS RUNNING REALLY BAD, IT MAY HELP: I have a 1999 ford f350(7.3), with a million issues, but right now the biggest one is what is causing it to not even run!! I already know the glow plugs and possibly the glow plug monitor come up on the codes, but that is not what is wrong. As long as it's plugged in and not too cold, it will start fine, normally. Anyways, just yesterday it will start, but run very poorly and it wont go over 20mph and if you try to put it in reverse, it will die. It ran just fine like hours before. About a year ago, I had this same problem and what it ended up being was the wiring harness that goes down into the injectors was loose and just that one little thing caused it to not even really run. This may be the problem with a lot of people's trucks on here. Anyways, I am praying that is the problem, if not, does anyone have any other ideas of what it could be?...please don't say injectors. I have to do a lot and need my truck back on the road a.s.a.p. Please email me ameier85@gmail.com if you think you know what it is. *Ashleigh M.*
