Customer Question
1995 7.3 PSD, starts...

1995 7.3 PSD, starts and runs with starting fluid, stall right away once you stop spraying

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Hmmm, no front clip on it right now, but two fully charged batteries

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '95 Ford?

F-350,

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Dually, with a sleeper on it...some kind of custom rig we picked up about a year ago.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

We bought the truck about a year ago with the engine begun to be taken apart, water pump, oil pump and a few other things taken off. Supposedly ran but smoked a little. So today, we put a few things back together, hooked up two good batteries and after maybe 3 or 4 minutes of attempted starts, it fired up with starting fluid, as long as you keep spraying starting fluid it runs, stop shooting In the starting fluid, it stalls...

What Customers are Saying:

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
