Pro-long cranking before starting

My 2006 Diesel spins over for a long time before starting after sitting for a long time, say over night or all day while at work. When starting after a quick stop it fires right up. I'm trying to discover what can cause this so I "don't spend a weeks vacation money for someone to seek and find". Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same problem. Someone told me to check all my ground connections and my connections at my starter, haven't done it yet, but it sounds like it could be the problem.

I am having the same problem now after I got the truck back from Ford. They did a new FICM, injectors, egr cooler, oil cooler and egr valve. Since the work (no problems before it went it just did it before the warranty ran out) I have had this EXACT problem. I have been told that maybe I got a bad FICM.....or the SCT valve is going bad.

Yep weak batteries will cause the truck to take longer to start. I replaced mine and my truck kicks over in about 2 - 3 seconds.

Nice rig by the way... is that a RMK hanging out the back?

Where do you live?
