95 PSD Hard starting.. Probably a glow plug issue but.....
So here's the background story. I just transferred to Kodiak AK from Michigan. I had to drive my truck to Pontoon Beach IL (St. Louis MO area) to have it shipped up here. On my way down, my water pump went out, and since I couldn't ship my truck with a ton of stuff in it, I took all my tools out. So needless to say I had to let someone else under the hood to fix it. Sucked, but it is what it is. That was April 28th.. Fast forward to June 27th, I got to the transportation office to pick my baby back up, and they say it won't start, and that I'm responsible for getting a tow truck to get it out of there. WTF I just drove it 750 miles the last time I was in it, and now it won't start? The temp here has been in the mid 50's to the mid 60's for the last two weeks, and that's nowhere near what it was in Sault Ste. Marie when I left, at the end of april, we were still in the low 40's. Either way, I asked if I could plug my truck in for a half hour or so and see if it would start, and sure enough it did. And now it still starts, but it takes about 2 to 3 times as long as it used to. So I have to believe it's the probably the relay, or is there anything in the area of the waterpump that the mechanic that fixed it might have knocked loose or anything. I'd like to get this fixed before the end of the month, because I'm about to leave on a few month deployment and when I get back it'll likely be either snowing or getting ready to. Thanks...
