2006 F-250 6.0 Starting Problem?

On my '06 F-250, it seems like it cranks for about 5-6 seconds before starting. This is in 60-70 degree temperature. Is this normal? It seemed like it used to fire in like 2 seconds. Is it something to be concerned about? No check engine light or anything...and I haven't had the hypertech on in over 3,000 miles (truck only has 4,000 miles on it).

It does it worse on cold, but even on hot, it takes a good 4-5 seconds I would say. I was thinking an internal HPOP leak could be starting...just didn't know if the dealer will think I'm crazy if I call for an appointment for this.

It's your warranty and their problem. If they think you're crazy then maybe they will be scared of you and fix it right the first time!

I just made an appointment for Friday morning to drop it off. Luckily I've got a work truck to use while it's in the shop. Service advisor agrees cranking that long isn't normal.

Just got her back from the dealer. They stated it seemed normal. They checked out the vacuum pump, too...I thought it was making some weird racket. Everything checked out good. So back it is and running great. No more withdrawals, lol.

The repair ticket didn't show that it got reflashed. However, last night, after driving it and coming home, the injectors do cycle after the truck is powered down...which never happened before. So they did flash it. I thought there was a newer flash now that doesn't cycle the injectors. Anyone know anything on that one?
