Re: 1993 E350 starting problems
I believe that the injection pumps are worn out. When you shut off the motor, the IP heat soaks which expands the metal in the pump and increases the internal clearances. Then the fuel bypasses the plungers and there is no injection pressure.
There is a test - when the truck will not start, pour a pan of "room temperature" water over the IP which will cool it down. Then try to start. Do not use cold water as it can cause physical damage to the IP.
