    Default Starting issues with Ford SU 4000 Diesel

    Having problems with starting after it sits for awhile. It cranks but won't start. have changed fuel filter so that is not problem. Would appreciate any help to fix this. Didn't have to use it much this summer as it was so dry, so it hasn't been used for a couple of months.

    Sounds like it may be losing it's prime. Check for broken line or fitting in fuel system, causing the fuel to drain back to tank, or onto the ground.

    just changing the fuel fitler and waving your hand and saying 'that is not the problem' is empty words.

    when cranking over is it making smoke?

    what color?

    have you bled the line to the pump and getting good flow there?

    bled the injectors?

    if plan pranny.. have you tried to pull start her? it's the easy way to bleed them..
