Asked by Mar 29, 2009 at 06:54 PM about the 1988 Ford F-250

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

so my 88 f-250 with a 7.3 navistar diesel had alot of charging and starting system problems. its has gone through many batteries, starters, and an altnerator. well one day the truck's main power wire leading from the starter realy down to the starter itself grounded out and caught on fire. so after putting out the fire and replacing all the lines, the truck never started again. i replaced both batteries, starter relay, starter, igintion switch, and power wires with the correct gauge, and the grounding wires.

any ideas? i dont have the truck anymore but that is one of those things i want to understand what happened.

no start or no crank? no start, could be the lift pump on the side of the block not working. Fuel filter plugged? air in fuel system? fuel tank vent plugged?
