Long cranking time only when cold. Normal starting time when hot.

Been having trouble starting my truck after about 5 hours shutdown. I do know I have one bad glowplug, but even when it is warm out, it takes about ten seconds to begin to fire. Sometimes I have to hold the starter engaged while it initially fires until it gets going. Yes I know this is not good and as such I need help. Any ideas??

make sure your using the factory oil filter cap with a factory filter. I see this all the time on trucks coming into our shop. If your using the right cap and filter than air test it I bet with your truck being an 05 it's the STC fitting or a dummy plug.

OK, I am not sure about how to diag this, I don't have access to a good scan tool.
When i try to start it cold it takes about 10 seconds to start. After that if I don't drive it for at least a half hour, it still takes some time to start. Now being around 20 deg F. It takes several times to start and keep it going. After about 3 or 4 times it will stay running, don't know, is there a way to air test the hipop system without a scan tool??

Stc fitting or stand pipes. Mine did the same thing but to be sure you need to check icp? I believe. Someone else should chime in. I would go ahead and replace the stc fitting, $50 and then u know you wont have that weak link.anymore. took me just at 3 hours to do. Just pull the turbo and you can get to it. Kinda tight and far back there tho.
