LONG START

Well im sure y'all are getting tired of seeing my name and questions on here but i've got another. had the ficm repaired about a week ago kept getting a p2552 code finaly got it to go away. and now its taking longer to start but no pattern to it. temperature doesn't realy effect it. it starts fine sometimes when hot or cold. then others drags out and takes between 10-15 seconds. any ideas? thanks for the help gentlemen

Ok, the filter is Motorcraft, but are you sure the cap is Motorcraft? Many aftermarket companies make their own cap, and if you were to use it, would create the condition you are having.

I've been thinking that myself. I've had the truck about 7 months and whoever had it before me replaced one battery but not the other. So I think the over one is going bad. Probably go ahead and put two new ones on it.

when i replaced mine, i saw a huge difference in cranking speed. i was almost scared at how fast it turned over. thats good tho, also have the alternator load tested by an auto parts store, its free.

and that is a good lookin truck

Thread hijack, dumb question maybe, but will it say Motorcraft on it? I'm doing my first oil change soon, and want to use the right cap. Thanks.
