No start issue..

Ive had my 6.0 for a couple weeks now, no issues when I first got it. Gradually took longer an longer to start (2-5 sec) (cold start). Now it never starts at first crank when its cold. After I drive a bit its fine an will start right up.

Glow plugs light goes off so I would think there warm? Just had my oil changed by Ford an they said batteries are good. Not having any coolant issues. I have no idea how to check FICM so kinda lost on this. Any help is appreciated.

EGR delete, 4" turbo back exhaust, still not studded, 62k miles

Theres a video on youtube and on the threads. Just search around it will say circuitboardmedics.com or something like that as a watermark. Thats what I used. Also bad glowplug wont actually turn CEL on, its a hidden code. I would start with the ficm and look around for an autozone or something, sometimes they have decent scanners that will pick up the glow plugs

I just had same issue...

Except I fixed it as soon as I noticed the longer crank.

For me it was the passenger side dummy plug o-ring became damaged and was allowing the passenger side oil rail to leak down. The HPOP then had to fill the rail before it could start and it took a longer crank.

Replaced my Stand pipes and Dummy plugs with the updated units with Teflon backer rings and all is fine again. Hope this helps you as well.
