Smile QUESTION ABOUT TRUCK STARTING

Thanks for any advice in advance. Any time I go to start my truck, turn the key on, let glow plugs warm then crank. Takes about 3 to 5 seconds 9 out of ten times. Ideas anyone? Thanks: wlsmithjr1960

I have heard these truck take a few revs before they start so the computer can be sure all is ready. possibly for the CPS to send signal to computer. it is normal some are a little faster than others.

I find if I start the truck about a second after the glow plugs go out I get the best start time. I'm pretty sure they stay on for 2 min after start, for some reason that second tends to give it a boost.
