Having problems with your 2003 Ford F350 Super Duty DRW SuperCab ?

'03 F-350 7.3 Powerstroke cranks but doesn't start.

\015 I bought a 2003 F-350 7.3 liter with 107k miles from an Arkansas wholesaler. I ran a CarFax on the VIN and it showed the truck as a one owner and no other info/history. Next morning won't start. "Gee, we didn't have any problems." My good mechanic diagnosed and replaced the following: Glow Plug Relay ($125) Injector Drive Module($777+$53!!!), Battery cable end, Fuel Heater, Fuel Heater Thermostat & Water Infuel Sensor. Checked glow plug resistance, Injector resistance- all were the same, Fuel Pump pressure 112 psi deadheaded, Both head rail were 60psi. $1527 total. Arky wholesaler refunded me $1030 even though I bought it "AS IS". My mechanic conferred with a Ford dealer diesel mechanic after all of this and he has no ideas. Still won't start except with a gasoline soaked rag in front of the air intake. Once it is started, it will continue to start throughout the day. Next day, cranks but won't start.\015\012In the shop for 4 weeks, sittting in driveway for 4 weeks.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 21-01-2019
