Stiction. Read link in sig. Won't do it when plugged in because the engine is warm. After work, your engine is cold and doesn't like it.

I dont have an idea 4 u but I do have a question. I have a 2005 f250 that doesn't have a plug-in block heater do you know if I can install one so it can start smoother? I heard that "ford" already installs the heater just doesnt have a plug so u have to just by the plug & hook it up to the block heater which is supose to be right above the starter but I havent looked yet. Do you know how I can install the heater block or what I have to do to get it installed?

There is a few guys on here who tow a lot with the T5 and their trucks seem fine.

Roadrunner I believe is one with 10w-30 John Deere oil and his oil reports are great and he tows. A few others so, yes, it's ok.

Yes, I would contact International. Getting the cord from Ford will be 2 or 3 times as much as the one from Interantional.
