Im back and its been a long while. My truck is cranking strong as ever but wont start. Updated: ffor anyone that remembers me. I have changed cps, ipr, tested hpop (4000 psi), new water pump and recently bought another computer. My truck just wont fire, not even on ether. I kno not to use it but im getting desperate to get the turd on the road by winter. I need help bad!
Ok, that's a start.....
#1) Charge the batteries....cause they run down quickly and no need to tax them...
#2) HPOP, a square or Hex looking plug is on the top...verify you have oil within 1/2" +/- of the top... extended cranking may lower the HPOP res. and will show up on your crankcase dipstick as a "over-serviced" at least it did with my thread / No start.
#3) Disconnect the ICP electrical plug, and try to start it with it disconnected, may see a "CEL" light illuminate on your dash...
#4) Check your Fuel pressure from the Schrader Valve ( tire stem) valve Fuel Bowl area) with a cheap tire gauge during a cranking session...you'll get a little wet with diesel, but focus on the gauge - as it will pulse- and "ballpark" a PSI during the cranking session.
#5) thats a start...other will chime in
#6) Smoke from the tail pipe when trying to start?
#7) I assume you have a WTS lamp, and NO CEL light illuminated?
#8) How many miles and how old the oil?
