Customer Question

JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: I have a 2000 f250 7.3 with 578,000 miles a month ago I developed 3 pin holes in the radiator and didn't realize this existed,so on a Friday I started loosin power and it was smoking black so I shut it down,well it had gotten really hot and my gauge wasn't showing it so I towed it home so the next day I pulled the radiator and found leaks but before buyin a new one I put it back in the truck and changed the oil and cut the old oil filter open to see if any shavings were in it none there and none in old oil. so with new oil and the old radi full of water I tried to start and all it would do is turn over without firing up????? any suggestions

Do you have a scan tool that can check the ICP pressure while cranking?
