I have a 93 ford bought in 99. the motor was replaced before I got it. It only has about 25000 miles on it. Hers the question. I dont really know much about diesels and had this problem back a few years ago. It ran fine then one day it had a problem starting, seemed fuel wasnt getting to the engine so I think. It would have to crank for quite a while before starting, even when warm after letting sit for an hour. I could smell fuel but wouldnt start. Once started it was fine. After doing this for a few weeks it would run my batteries down. Well It has been sitting now for over 2 years and I want to get this up and running again, heres my questions. What could have caused this and now that it has been sitting for so long what would it take to get it going again? Any rough estimates on what it may cost to get it going? Im sure the tank will have to be drained. It had 1/4 tank when left.
