Hard cold start
I am having a rather long crank hard start
cranks for 3-5 seconds. after it starts first a cloud of black smoke followed by a trail of blue smoke. black smoke comes out in first 2 seconds the immediately followed by the blue and the blue stops by the 5 second mark.
2 new DEKA 1040 CA 880CCA batteries
NEW BPD FICM old one had 34 volts this one has 48 minimum
in the last year i replaced the dummy plugs stand pipes and STC fitting
the alternator charges at 13.8-14.1
I assume the glow plugs work correctly when i turn the key on voltage drops to 11.6 when i crank it drops to 11.3 and once it fires its back to 11.6-12 and after the seat belt light turns off ( 60 seconds after the truck starts ) the truck jumps up in voltage. and i assume thats the glow plugs kicking off.
no rough idle of any sort no matter the temps.
someone point me in the right direction or gives me some things to check/test please and thanks.
