Sorry to ressurect this old post, but the sypmtoms that JDEN had were exactly what I am having, except, I just replaced all the glow plugs and nothing. It is only around 34 degrees here, melting as we speak, but still no life whatsoever. Doesn't even sound like it wants to start.
Any other ideas? I have an 81 300D. fuel filter is full of fuel, the old glow plugs had fuel and oil on them (except the second from the back (#4?) which was completely dry, and my battery is 3 days old.
Any ideas would be great - I am out of where to look next.
81 300D 250K+ (odo doesn't work!)
Want another one.
