Exclamation "hot start" issues '06 6.0 turbo

I just bought my truck a year ago. It had 92,000 miles on it, I just hit the 100,000 mile marker. Now I'm having the "hot start" issues, I'm new to diesels so I don't understand all the acronyms yet that everyone is putting in all the threads. So, I'm wondering where to even start to fix my issue!
Should I just take it to a mechanic or dealership?

You most likely have an High Pressure Oil (HPO) leak causing the issue. Biggest problem area for the 05-07 engines is the Snap To Connect (STC) fitting on the High Pressure Oil Pump (HPOP) or the dummy plugs or stand pipes that feed oil to the oil rail under the valve covers.

Is this something I can change myself?

You can do it, but you need to verify the problem first. It's not a quick fix.

Do I have to see a mechanic or someone to diagnose it or is there anything I can do to figure out what the problem is?

I am fighting through the exact same issues on my 04. My advice would be to take it in and have the system pressure tested so you know where the leak is, otherwise you are just replacing part randomly.

At least you don't have to worry about the STC. Stand pipes are not real common on yours either. At any rate, hope you both get it figured out soon.
