I read somewhere (on here I think) that it is possible to get air in the high pressure oil system and that in order to clear it Ford recamendeds doing 12 hard accellerations from 25 to 50. Then letting the truck sit for 5 min. and restarting and see if the crank time shortens. Needless to stay I tried this and it didn't make any difference.
I started thinking maybe I just got some bad fuel. I avoid bio blends because I notice the difference with them and they seem to cause longer cranks. Since I dont drive much (I work 5 min. from home) I am waiting to get all the fuel out and I am going to try refueling somewhere else and see what happens. It is back in the 50s now here and lows at night are only 42. Right now I am down to a half tank of fuel and the truck seems fine. So the power service I added to the tank got mixed around and is helping, I ran out the bad stuff, it is warmer, I dont know...For now I'm not really worried about it. We'll see if the problem returns and if so I will let you guys know.
