Having problems with your 2002 Ford F250 Super Duty SuperCab ?

7.3 liter will not start.

\015 The low pressure side of the fuel system is ok, we have fuel to the filter and I would assume to the fuel rail as well. We decided to install a pressure guage on the high pressure oil line from the pump to the valve cover and when turning over the engine we see no pressure at all therefore no fuel pressure to the injectors. We thought maybe cam position sensor but we are not receiving any engine codes while turning the engine over. Is the high pressure oil pump knowing for quitting on these engines?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Answers :

Yes they are you stated that you have mech oil pressure did you install a gauge?. this is a fuel line pressure sensor on the right bank at the frt of the head this sensor is rail pressure that high pressure oil pump creates check you pressure there that will elimnate that head the other side is a little more of a pain to test. one other thing to keep in mind is that the cranking speed is very important, and have you checked the oil level on a 7.3 deisel if you are more than 3 qaurts low on oil you will trap air in the high pressure pump. this will cause a hard start our even a no start

Hi, these problems are unrelated--lucky you. \015\0121. The starting issue could be your safety interlock or possibly a security system blip. Next time it happens, try starting it in neutral rather than park. If that works, replace the park ... Saturn Ion

I have a 1987 Plymouth Reliant LE station wagon 2.5 liter engine. When I was driving my car it started shaking like I lost power and I parked it in the driveway and I tried to start it but it won't start. I sprayed starting fluid in the fuel injection and it still wouldn't start. I checked my spark plugs and they were black. I put new spark plugs today and I tried to start it and it still did not start.

While driving my chevy tahoe gave a kick as if out of gas. I pulled over and got gas. Then I started to start the truck but should little sign of starting with gas hand on quarter tank. So I went under the hood and checked oil, it showed to have very little so I put 2 quarts of oil. After that it seemed the more I tried to start the truck the dimmer the lights got and eventually shut off. Now when I try to start it up literally nothing happens.


Reason headlights got dim and eventually went off is because you drained the battery trying to start so first thing you need to do is charge battery after battery is fully charged check to see if it start if doesn't start pop hood and on fuel rail t ... 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe

My 1999 Chevy Suburban 5.7 liter hesitates to start right after driving it. I could get in the truck in the morning, start it right up head to the gas station, fuel up. When I get back in the truck and go to start it, it rolls over once, then twice, then I pump the gas pedal and it starts. Any ideas? I recently changed the starter a few months ago. This started happening after that replacement. Bad starter?

Then I went to the gas station, got gas and again it would just crank and not start. Waited about 1 minute and started right up and got me home about 10

My daughters 1999 Jetta GL, 2.0 liter AEG engine, has trouble starting after refueling. After that, it starts fine. I have been getting a trouble code for evap emission control system malfunction. I'm not sure if this system could cause the starting problem.
