6.2 diesel hard start???
My buddy just picked up a 3/4 Ton 83 van with a 6.2 diesel. He mentioned it has a starting problem. Starts easy when it's warm, hard when it's cold.
When we were talking about it this morning, I mentioned if he tried starting fluid (I'm not a fan of starting fluid). He said there was an empty can in the back (it was a work van so it has lots of trash he has not cleaned up from the previous owner), but it didn't register at the time as he has started it easy 3 times since he bought it..
So other than the glow plug (which the dash light does come on and go off), what do you look for on a diesel? Where are the glow plugs? Is there 1 for each cylinder? [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]
