Having problems with your 2004 Ford F350 ?

Diesel Truck. I Have a 2004 Diesel f-350 super duty truck. Plain and simple, it wont start. I have taken apart the top fuel filter(close to the turbo hose) and found no problems, and the fuel pump works fine and pumps fuel into that second fuel filter. I found a blockage in the fuel filter and cleaned it up but it still wont start. *By the way it has air compression and the glow plugs work fine, it hits off of ether* Any tips?

Possible solution. I have an Edge Juice Programmer for my '04 6.0. While making the harness connections, I misjudged one connection and it wasn't completely in, causing truck to turn over but not start. Check on the driver's side front wheel well (under hood). You'll see 3 connections there with a grey lock lever. If you push the lever towards the engine, it will unlock the plug. You can check to make sure that these are completely in, and possibly there is no moisture getting into these connections. If so, try spraying some WD-40 (Water Displacement by 40%) on the connections and reinstall.

I have a 2001 F250 7.3 L diesel that I had idling and hooked to jumper cables for jumping a street rod truck in my shop that I am building. Once I got the street rod started I shut off the F250 and it sat for a couple days and now won't start. It turns over fine, but won't even hit a lick. I checked the fuses, both under the dash and hood. I also removed the fuel filter and turned the key on and it's getting fuel to the filter fine. Any ideas of what else it might be??

Yes it sounds like the pressure regulator. the only way to be sure is have a scan machine put on the truck, then you can see the pressure when truck is cold.They are quite pricey so dont just change it without checking the pressure first. ... 2006 Ford F 350 Super Duty

Our 2003 Sterling LT7500 Truck will not start in the morning. The engine turns over; however, it will not fire up. We have replaced all of the fuel filters and that didn't help. The only way we can get it to start is to spray a little starting fluid into the air cleaner. Once the truck has been running, the truck starts fine for the rest of the day.

My 93 gmc sierra would start but when i put it in gear and tried to accelerate it would act like it wasn't getting gas. I used a diagnostic tool and it said there was a problem with the map sensor i replaced it and now the truck wont start at all. so we took apart the throttle body and found that the fuel pressure was really low but its not the fuel filter. Is there anything else I could do besides replacing the fuel pump.


It sounds like your fuel pump has failed. Use a fuel pressure gauge to see what your pressure is now. Once you've replaced the fuel pump you will see the difference in the pressure and it will repair your concern. ... GMC Sierra 1500
