I have a 2000 F350 Dually Powerstroke 7.3.I'am a Hotshot Driver in New Orleans an when I park my truck on Friday by Monday it won't start just spin like a gasoline truck when the timing best pops or if it's out of gas.I have to spray starting fluid in it to start it.I already change Glowplug Relay, Fuel Filter, and and an Unknown name Relay next to the Glow Plug Relay.I'am $2000 in debt, and the shop doesn't have a clue

See if one of thetechs therre has the proper equipmen tto see if thefuel pressur eis bleeding off and if so, where it is bleeding off at. When it does start, does it miss or surge? Could have a bad injector that is bleeding the fuel system down over long down times and then it has air in it that must be purged to get it running.

Sounds like you may have one or more injectors going out, which could leak down fuel causing starting problem

The guy at shop said he wasn't going to warranty my truck because I needed that stuff he changed replaced. He told me I need all 8 injectors replaced, and 2 new batteries and starter then he will warranty my truck. How can U check to see which one is it? Are they easy to change?I spoke to someone at Ford they told me to check the injector harness before I change injectors

Definitly check the harness with an ohm meter to be sure the wiring is good to all injectors. They are a little bit of a pain to do, but check the harness first, he was "shotgunning" the problem with all 8 injectors, although at that mileage, it would be a good investment, a bad injector can cause internal damage to a Diesel
