have found no solution.

Well I have a 06 6.0, for the past two months in the morning no matter what temp it is outside it takes anywhere from 3-7 seconds to turn over, it runs just fine after its warm. I talked to the dealership and ended up replacing the sct bracket. no change at all. Now its still taking forever to turn over and they are at a loss considering it only does it in the morning or after sitting for hours. Now in the past week I have had intermitent problems with it starting when its warm and has sat for about 30 min. I cranked it for 15-20 seconds at a time and nothing. Then let it sit for a min and cranked it and boom it fired right up and ran like a champ. Never chugs never hesitates after started so what the hell is going on??? Any tech out there or someone that had the same problem. I have heard its the ICP, HPOP, Glow plugs, fuel system. only problem is that gets very expensive to replace all of it and no one can narrow this down for me. Any help would be great.

Is it throwing any codes? Is your fuel filter clean? How many miles are on the truck?

Main reason I asked for the mileage was to see if you were keepin up with cleanin and maintenance. What does your oil pressure look like? How old are your batteries? Could be a relay or something

Took truck in today. ICP code came up and the tech who is great by the way, Started doing all his other checks because he wasnt satisfied with the answer to the problem. He hooked shop air to the ICP port and checked all the areas I guess you are supposed to check. And the passanger side valve cover with the oil cap off you could hear air gushing out. You could actually feel it when you put your hand over the fill cap. Oh and also the oil cooler and the EGR cooler need to be replaced. So I hope that fixes my problem.

Thats what they are telling me. I had my SCT bracket replaced with the new kind 2 months ago and when they were in there they said that the actual pump looked fine so I hope that doesnt go after I get this service done.

The easiest way to narrow it down to an ICP issue is to get a scanner on it and watch your ICP pressure (psi) as you crank it. It will start when it hits 500 psi. If it takes those 7 secs to build sufficient ICP then you know that's your problem.
