Exclamation Hard Start??

I added this video to one of my other threads, but no one is responding. so maybe I can get some information here. (Click Image for Video)



Ever since I returned from my trip out to the desert my starts have taken longer an seem to be getting harder. Is this just striction or something else? How can I fix it?

Thanks

Rob

Mine is doing the exact same thing. Thought I had it fixed with new STC fitting and IPR valve, but doing the same thing again. Very frustrating. Does it always start even when it is hot?

sounds like your batteries aren't the best.. get them load tested at autozone or something! mine give me around 13V and what are the CCA on the batteries?

Your batteries are good!

No one can help you with the limited info you provided.
Codes (hard/soft), IPR, ICP, and FICM for starters?
Any other info such as: smoke, smell, oil fill rate, fuel flow and pressure?

Almost all no starts are oil - high pressure, FICM, or fuel flow related. Most long cranks to start are glow-plug, fuel pressure, oil flow (wrong filter), low fuel pressure, FICM and slow to build HP oil.
