Customer Question

1991 F-350 HD has been setting for 2 years. It turns over, but does not start. Where should I start? Glow-plugs? Fuel Tank and lines? Or should I replace all?

You most likely just have air in the fuel injectors and you should be able to get it to clear without replacing anything. 2 years really isn't that long for a diesel to sit.

Have you tired pulling the fuel filter canister to see if there is fuel in there?

Have you tried to see if it will run on starting fluid or butane? I know diesels say "no starting fluid", but you really only run into trouble with starting fluid if you use it on a hot turbo.
