Ok, you're not an idiot. Got it. Some people don't know not to use ether on a diesel.

You can use ether on a diesel just can,t get carried away with it.Without it i highly doubt this truck would have started this morning.Unless i,m gonna tarp it in setup a torpedo heater wait and hr then try to get it running.One quick shot in the air intake and it fired right off.Now if the engine has a air intake heater you could cause a explosion.Have been on a site with a Cat330 few winters ago.Blew the guy right off the machine.

sounds like its time for some new glow plugs Billy! I have never had an issue firing off my 7.3 unplugged. I've started it as low as 2-3 degrees.

I tested the glow plugs with a snap on modius about about 3 months said all where fine.Remember buddy wind chill was -30 other night.But i will test them again when i get a chance this week.Replaced my GP relay about month and half ago again did one also few yrs ago IIRC.

Wind chill doesnt effect inanimate objects, all it does is bring an object down to ambient temperature faster. My GP relay and GP's are new, and it will start with one cycle of the key every time. Might be a good idea to ohm them, instead of going by the computer, you shouldnt have a problem starting that truck.

If you do replace them, make sure you use OEM replacements!
