Starting Problem

My F350 Diesel will only start when plugged in. I was told it could very well be some sensor called a thickem? Something to do with the injectors? I was also told it was not the glow plugs.Help! The dealer wants $1400. to fix. it is 2005 with 140,000km

More info is needed. Like, which diesel and mileage. Sounds like you need a second opinion too...I guess that's why you're here. Sounds like a glow plug issue to me but not certain. I've never heard of a thickem???

if you mean ficm(fuel injection control module)plugging in would make no difference,if you have access to a scan tool read the stored powertrain codes,it will help with diag.


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
