My '91 ford E-350 Econoline Diesel 7.3 L is starting hard. When engine is cold (not- run-for-over-eight-hours) it starts up right away, BUT ONLY RUNS FOR 3 SECONDS AND STALLS. It can't be the glo-plugs, because it does start right up on the first try. But after it stalls, I have to crank for about 45 to 50 seconds before it will start. Lots of blue smoke after it starts, but being a diesel, can't tell if that is normal. _______ any guesses ? _____ Shade-Tree-Mech.

THE MECHANIC says no brake fluid in the vacuum hose, but the fluid IS disappearing from the Brake Master. I'm SURE THAT it is being sucked into the engine (?) VIA the BRAKE -POWER-BOOSTER. ~ THANKS (?)
