Help starting dt466e

Started and ran a little bit two weeks ago but doesnt want to start today. Have tried several times. A couple it seems to be almost running like 6 or 8 revs then dies. Thoughts?

The cheapest way I know of is with a scam gauge d it's the ignition control pressure if it's not getting at least 500 psi at cranking speed it won't start

Is this lack of pressure something that would be common even though it started a couple of weeks earlier?

It's the most common with power stroke and until you can rule it out you probably won't be able to diagnose it any further

I have started a "diagnostic" folder for which I plan to keep in my bus for times when I have engine problems and need immediate help.

So if I break down on the road, I get to go to my "Diagnostic" library !!!


TO Doe69936,
Thanks so much for that PDF , lots of great info in it!
