Starting Issue.

I bought a 95 Powerstroke off my buddy knowing it had an issue starting when cold, below 65 usually. We thought it was the Glow plugs, replaced them, same result. I talked to someone at a ford dealership, told them my light only stays on for about 13 to 15 seconds when cold and they said it should be on longer, change the relay. Did that, same result. So now I don't know what to do. I have check the HPOP, operating level. I went to the local Peterbilt dealership around me because they used to be Tri-State Ford and still have the diesel mechanics there and he said to plug it up at night to to keep it warm and see what she does the next day. I did that and it starts up great. He said if it does this, it sounds like it has a scorn injector, and it's bleeding off over night and wont allow it to start in the morning when cold. He said I can bring it down to them and they'll hook it up to try and see which injector it is. I hate spending a bunch of money on injectors in not needed. I hate going thru loops to just find out whats wrong with it. Anyone have any insight that I can use?

Thanks.

I think my truck was doing the same thing. I thought it was glow plugs or relay causing the issue. If that's not the case with yours, I'm back to square one. I will be watching to see what happens.

well the diesel mech said it could be an injector bleeding off, and he can hook it up and find out which one? why not just have them all rebuilt to stage 1's then? or have it hooked up and find out which one?
