Exclamation PLEASE!!! Need Help With Truck!!!!!!!

I need help with a problem with a truck i just bought.

I go out to start it and wait for the glow plug light to turn off. Go to start and it wont start.
I try again doing the same thing.

Also it does not puff any smoke out the tailpie while cranking.

I push the truck into the heated garage and let it warm up for bout 30-60 min and the truck will start.

PLEASE
does anyone have any clue how to fix/or what to check.

Thanks
Matt

There r no codes that come up on the scan tool. When u turn the key u can hear the relay click on and ckecked with a test light and the power switches from the power side to the switched side when key is turned.
There is 12v where there is supposed to be 12v

Dont know if that how u check or not.

Also the wiring harness and connectors dont look burt or smell..

The motor in the truck only has 75,000 on a rebuild from what im told. I have the documents on the rebuild.
everything was new
*turbo
*injectors
*glow plugs
*gpr
*harness

I checked for the block heater and all i could find is what looked to be like an oil heater.

Is that the blockheater.

Your block heater could be bad. You should read some sort of temp on the gauge instead of rock bottom cold.

Check your glow plug relay. it is in the middle of the motor, on top, more towards the passenger side and looks like the starter relay on your passenger fenderwell. Check the big lugs on that relay. One lug should be a constant 12v from the batts. The other should be dead until you turn the key to the on position. Once the key is in the on position, check the voltage and it should be around 12v as well. If not, your GPR is bad.

Check the wiring harness at the valve cover, they shouldn't smell or look burnt, if so you need new valve cover gaskets and under valve cover harnesses.

Temp reads rock bottum on an aftermarket gauge.

What I meant was if you leave it plugged in overnight, the water temp gauge should be above the dead cold reading.
Also make sure your batteries are charged all the way and both are good batts. How is it at turning over? Does it sound sluggish or does it spin pretty good? You getting any smoke while cranking? Once it starts, does it run fine?

I would definitely have the batteries checked. The cold will kill a batt.. Maybe the warm garage will let them push the juice.
