Hi all,

A "Great" Ford diesel site is:
Thedieselstop.com.  I have been a member for years. 
If you post your message there, they should be able to
help you out.  
On your truck everything is done by a computer.  You
should check it for codes.  Powerstrokes are good
engines but they are not like our simple 1.6 IDI's or
the older 7.3 IDI. I own an older Ford with a 7.3 IDI.
These have no computer.   Best of luck.  P.S. Do not
use ether unless you disable the glow plug system!
Severe engine damage will result.  Ether is explosive.
 Glow plugs and ether do not mix.

I hope everything works out.

1990 Ford  F250 7.3 Diesel 4x4 supercab
1992 Jeep Cherokee 4x4
