Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.
Do you know if there are trouble codes stored?
Will it start and remain running at full throttle?
Do you have the ability to monitor the fuel pressure and ICP pressure during this crank-start-stall?
Since your not able to perform diagnostics I assume your looking for my best educated guess on the symptoms you have?
Jumping the reverse relay if done right and in fact on the reverse relay should not have caused a no start.
Since you do not have the tools needed to diagnose this. I suggest the vehicle be towed to a shop. A guess is what your up against without doing any diag and a guess on a diesel is expensive ad normally takes many guesses. Now in the event you find a fried whom can help you diagnose this and has the tools. I am more than willing to continue and try helping.
Thanks for using Just Answer, and rating me so I am compensated, Chris
