slow start

so here we go its 2005 and slow start... most of the time it sarts good in the morning or when cold but takes a longer crank time when warm. I can always get started but have to crank for a long time. I have no smoke and the truck runs good other than little slow untill warmed up but I think that is normal thanks for the help

The standpipes and dummy rail plugs are updated with a kit that can be purchased from Ford by ordering part number 6E7Z-9A332-B

High prssure oil system air pressure test, best performed when the engine is up to operating temperature (when the oil is thin and the symptom can be duplicated).

If it is in fact a high pressure oil system leak, no it won't really damage anything, but it MAY leave you stranded somewhere if you shut the truck off and need to restart it once the leak worsens to the point where it won't build up sufficient ICP to start the engine.

I have the same problem. Changed the STC fitting when I changed the oil cooler and did an EGR delete. Now looks like I'll open up the valve covers. I found a trick when it doesn't start. Unhook the ICP sensor hook it backup when it starts.

I did it just the way the instructions said to I even bought a crows foot to torque it..... well let me know if you take your valve covers off and how it go's I need some moral support. mine also has not gotten to the point where it never starts just has to be cranked on 2 times when hot!!!

How may times have you actually shut the engine dow and re-started it after the repairs? For what it's worth extended engine cranking is to be expected after any time the high pressure oil system has been "opened up" after any type of given repair. For this reason, after any kind of job like a head stud install, or replacement of a set of coolers I usually request authorization from the customer to the vehicle for about 200 kms. (140 miles) after the repair so that I can address any "issues" before I release the vehicle back to the customer.

well I had to pull the high pressure oil rail back off to fix a push rod and it has been some where around that amount of miles. what is weird is it doesnt always seem as bad all the time. it was warm here today and it acted pritty good???? also also other people have a problem with no start at all I never have this problem it will start just has to be turned over maybe 10-15 sec sometimes. one more thing if it is a leak will it get worse??? if so I will take it on a road trip b/c if i pull the valve covers I want to be able to see the leak for sure!!!
