Another Long Start Thread
I have spent hours looking at old threads and decided I still need to post a new one.
Symptom: occasional/random long starts. Truck takes a while to start 10secs ish randomly. Not necessary when its cold. Like this morning it was 34 and the truck was in a insulated attached garage. This evening it was outside all day on campus and started just fine. It has happened maybe 4 or 5 times in the last 30 days or so....
Specs: New alternator and batteries around July. Yes I have motorcraft fuel filters and caps (changed with last oil change about 500 miles ago) Rest of Specs can be found in sig. Truck has 138xxx miles
Treatment: FICM, Glow plugs, other?
I will probably go ahead and do a voltage check on the FICM tomorrow (with fully charged batteries). Can I check the glow plugs?
Thanks for the input!
2008 ECLB FX4 all stock
Planning on: Spartan, full 5", EGR delete, 6"on 37's
