Ran real rough not won't start. Batteries are OK. 1997 F350
yes.I have a 1997 f350 7.3 diesel. It had been unused for about 6 months and I took it on a 300 mile trip. Ran find, no problems. I parked it for about 2 weeks and when I went to move it, it didn't want to start. When it started, it sounded like it was running on 4 or 5 cylinders. Didn't have enough power to move. Idled real rough for a minute or two, check engine light came on, and I was able to move it about 30 yards to my shop. Watched 2 or 3 YouTube movies on the 7.3. Disconnected the batteries and removed the air filter. Started looking for rubbed wires. Took the bolt out of the main wiring plug, no sign of arcing, looked good. Put it back together. Started to hook the batteries back up. Put the cable on the neg. post on the drivers side and when I touched the cable to the pos post, it arced. Stopped to fine the problem. When I remover the neg post on the passenger side, I had moved the cable so it wouldn't make contact with the battery but had placed it where it was touching the Pos post on the started relay. Shorted. Hooked the batteries back up and the motor cranks but will not fire. The wait to start (WTS) light stays on but is real dim. Checked the fuses and #9 (Powerpoint) under the dash was blown. Don't know if blown before or if the short blew it. Pulled and checked all fuses under dash and under hood. No other fuses were blown. Replaced the fuse but no change. No start, dim WTS. When cranking, the tach does move. Watched more YouTube. Checked the #22 fuse again (fuel heater) not blown. Removed the fuel filter, drained the bowl. Turned the key on to flush the fuel bowl. No fuel at the bowl. Cranked it for about 30 seconds, no fuel in the fuel bowl. … read more

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
