Next Tuesday, the 9th, National Spring in El Cajon, CA is gonna replace ALL
4 spring-packs, on my 2000 F250 SD/SC 4x4, seen at webpage
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://homepage.mac.com/dhsanto/PhotoAlbum.html, with THEIR spring-packs.
Gonna also have upgraded bushings installed, front & rear, 4 Bilstein shocks
(to replace the Edelbrocks currently installed E's are good, but...),
Air-Lift Air Bags on the rear, Super-Duty version, and the dual-gauge in-cab
controller. Will let you know anything special afterwards, if you would
like.

Sounds like a hydraulic problem, either the clutch master or slave.

I had a 96 F350 with the 5 speed that had the same noise.  It turned out to
be the master cylinder.

It sounds like you have a bad controller or some (or all) glow plugs.  There
were many revisions of the glow plug system on the 94-97 Diesels due to high
failure.  The latest seems to have fixed the problem.
I had the same problem on my '96 right after I bought it.  It was very
strange though.  I would cycle the glow plugs and crank, no start.  Switch
fuel tanks, cycle the glow plugs, and it would start right away.  If I was
to shut it off right away and try to restart it, I would have to switch back
over to the tank I was on and do it all over again.
The dealer replaced 5 glow plugs and installed the latest controller under
warranty.  It has worked decent since.

> I'm talking 40 degrees here - not anywhere near freezing.
I crank mine about 10 seconds after the light goes off and it starts good
down to 0 degrees.

It will not hurt the glow plugs to crank while the light is still on.  The
glow plug system will stay on for about 2 minutes after the light goes off.

If you have any interest in 1948-1979 F-series trucks, the
2001 Supernationals is THE place to go to. Over 800 trucks
in the show each year, plus hundreds more parked all over
the strip. Vendors, hundreds of awards, model car and truck
exhibit, t-shirts, tech shows and a great parade with about
2 miles of Effies!

The show is at the Grand Hotel and Convention center in
Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. You can book at room at any of the
many hotels around town or camp in the nearby Smokey Mountains.
There is a trolley/bus system so getting around town is easy.
Lots of fun things to do, Dollywood, the Smokey Mountains,
rides, outlet mails, craft centers, and much more. There is
something for the whole family.

The Grand Hotel can be contacted at:
3171 Parkway
Pigeon Forge, Tennessee 37863-3309
(865) 453-1000

Pat Ford Promotions can be contacted at:
1920 Council Avenue
Statesville, NC 28625
(704) 872-7327
Registrations should be sent to Pat Ford Promotions. Call or
write them to get a registration form.
Pre-registration for your truck: $20
Registration after April 15th: $25

Ford Truck Enthusiasts will be staying at the Howard Johnson.
The best reservation prices I've found was on www.expedia.com.
Every hotel listed near the Convention Center, are rated as
the same number of stars so price and location will be your
primary considerations.

The closest hotel to the Grand is the Holiday Inn.  It will
run about 30% more than the Howard Johnson's.  The HoJo is
within walking distance of the Grand (about 2 blocks).
The next hotel down the strip is the Days Inns.  It runs
slightly more than the HoJo and is further away from the Grand.

FTE stays at the HoJo when we reserve early.  Last year we
were at the Days Inn because we didn't reserve early enough.
