Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 95 f250 with the 7.3PS. It has 160,000 miles on it. Last week it was getting hard to start in the mornings. Replaced the glow plugs. It ran fine up until last thursday. Then it was not wanting to start again. ONce it finally started it stalled like someone turned the key. once we got it running again it started to run better. Sent the truck out to work. It ran fine the rest of the day once it got warmer. Friday morning couldnt get it to start at all. We have replaced the Cam position sensor, glow plugs and fuel filter. I have tested the glow plugs and they are testing fine with the test light. The bowl where the fuel filter is full of fuel. Any help is very appreciated.

Thanks Jason.

Re: Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You Said You Tested The Glow Plugs With A Test Light. I Would Recomend Testing With A Ohm Meter With The Wire Disconnected, Thats How I Am Used To. No Resistance No Good.

I have now taken the gp out and tested. The plug heated up immediatly. I'm now begining to think its a fuel problem. However the bowl that holds the fuel filter is full of fuel. Is there a way to test for proper fuel flow?

Re: Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It Is Starting To Sound Like A Ground, Fusible Link, Or Bad Connection. If The Truck Runs Fine Once Started I Wouldnt Think It Would Be An Fuel Delivery Issue. Have You Tried Pluggin Your Truck In Overnight To See How It Starts The Next Morning? Once It Doesnt Start Open The Hood And Start Taking A Small Group Of Wires And Giving Them A Good Shake And Try Starting If It Starts Right Away Your Group Of Wires Has A Issue.
