rough starts already???????

well just recently its been getting into the low 40's at night and the truck is starting like POOP again. it just sounds so rough on it and i will cycle the glow plugs a bunch of times and it will start better but i want it to be smoother especially now that im gonna be 30 min away from home for college and winter time and dont want it to not start on me to get home. currently im running either motorcraft 10w-40 or rotella 10w-40. i believe this oil change has motorcraft in it, cant remember. i only have about 2400 miles on this oil change but i dont think i can wait, plus i dont drive it that much, mostly shorter trips. will synthetic 5w-40 and rev x help it start better? and how much rev x. mobil 1 synthetic 5w-40 i see alot, is that a good oil or do i get a different brand. here is a vid of my truck starting, it was close to 47 degrees F. when i started it. and whats with the blue smoke

I have to say according to the video, it didnt really sound that rough. Need it to be closer to the engine. The smoke is fine, it will do that on cold mornings for just a bit. 5w-40 synthetic will help but mainly rev-x.

Definately some rev-x then. I have a vxcf9 ficm which helped my cold starts, so i'd say do the revx and syn oil will help a bunch. There is a place in eaton, oh that sells revx as well.

I have to agree with windrunner, it really didn't sound that bad. However, some 5w-40 with 8oz of rev-x will help. My last oil change I used valvoline premium blue extreme 5-40 with 8oz of rev-x and I couldn't be more pleased. The other morning it was 39 degrees out and my truck hadn't been started for 2.5 weeks, it started faster than ever and there wasn't a hint of stiction or rough running. I also have the vxcf9 flash.

thats not rough at all, try some rev x and synthetic oil and it will be better though.

sounds like your batteries are weak, get them load tested before they take out another ficm.
