6.0 cold start trouble.

I have an 05 6.0 psd with about 45k. i work second shift can't plug truck in while at work. its gotten down to about 22 degrees so i let it glow 2x before attempting to start. when i let it glow i hear the clicking sound... whatever that is. Anyway when i went to started tonight, it acted like it was gonna die and started blowing some serious smoke. After about a minute it seemed to run ok. When i plug it in it starts right up... Anyone have any idea, maybe glow plug relay?? If so can someone tell me where the gpr is located. Sorry but i'm sorta a diesel newbie...

take this truck to ford and have the inductive heating reprogram done , doesnt have a glow plug relay , has a module and they dont tend to give problems , the reflash should take care of your problems

one thing to remember as well , the glow plug light and actual glow plug on time are 2 different things , glow plug on time is controlled by engine oil temperature , the light only stays on for up to 10 seconds , but glow plugs are still on, cycling the key is a waste of time

I used to cycle the key a couple of times in the morning and wound up blowing the gasket on my fuel filter.

yes that can help , even after starting the glow plugs are still on up to 90 seconds depending on temp ,but yes to answer your question , waiting another 15-20 seconds can help

some do, some dont , we did if it was out of base warranty , after 36,000 then its chesaper than the deductible , so they probably will , just call them and ask them
