Customer Question
Ford F350 6.4 won't...

Ford F350 6.4 won't crank intermittently. Seems to happen while on an incline or decline, if that makes any sense at all.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

Diesel

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your F350?

2009

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

Not much. Not even sure where to start. All indicators come on with the ignition turned but nothing happens.

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

Has happened 3 or 4 times over the past 6 months otherwise runs good.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Can you duplicate this issue?

Do you have a volt ohm meter so we can do some testing to figure this out?

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

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.
