    Grody or North County Ford

    My 99 F350 7.3 truck just broke down in a parking lot near two Ford Dealers
    The engine will not start
    Any suggestions as to which one has the best diesel mechanic
    Thanks

    Tou might have a CPS failure. Might want to seap that out before you take it to the dealer. Here is a little "HOW TO" article.

    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said:
    "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    Thanks for the tip
    I replaced the CPS with a new one in the parking lot yesterday. It did not start
    Truck has 65psi fuel pressure
    Batteries are brand new & crank at 10.9v
    Replaced IPR orings & cleaned IPR last week
    HPOP is full of oil
    Pulled valve covers in parking lot & there is no oil pumping when cranking
    I am guessing it is the HPOP

    I replaced the HPOP because there was no oil when cranking at the injectors
    It started but was still hard to start. Drove it for about 20 minutes & it was still hard to start. Then I drove it 4 hours & now it starts even more quickly than it did before I had this problem. Almost starts like a gas engine now.
    Would it take that much driving to clear air out the HPOP lines?
    Is it possible there was some debri or a sticking Injector poppet that finally was blown out or unstuck?
    I am just a bit concerned about this problem occuring again.

    It takes a while to get all the air out
