Customer Question
Truck not wanting to...

Truck not wanting to start. Long crank time, and sometimes when I turn the key to start nothing happens.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Truck Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Ok

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

Don't know much about diesel engines.

Sorry, I do not work on those trucks, I will move you out of the Ford car category so another can help.

I have 2005 Freightliner with a ddec4 14L Detroit and what
I have 2005 Freightliner with a ddec4 14L Detroit and what its doing is, when the engine is cold it stars perfectly. when the engine has been worked and is at operating temp and you turn it off for 30mins or more, it is very hard to start. It will crank over & over and sounds like its trying to get fuel. It will start to fire on about 3 cylinders and immediately fire up all six, as though nothing was wrong. The truck runs beautifully and has great power. Its just that every now and then it does this. There has been 3 times now that it has refused to start at all and we had to use Aerostart to get it going. Any suggestions? … read more
