The GPR sits right on top of the engine. You can easily check it with an ohm meter. Also, you can check your glow plugs via the UVCH with an ohm meter without removing the valve covers. I'd also look at the condition of the harness termina;s, and inspect for meltdown. Hope this gets you started. Read lots &

I would agree, if it's hard-starting even after warm-up, the GP system is low on the suspect list. Check the HPOP reservoir level when you park it. Then check it again after it's been parked a while, before starting it again. It's possible the reservoir is leaking back down to the pan, and requiring extended cranking to refresh.

How old is the oil, anyway? How's the level?

I'd say that you have a bad HPOP, or a bad CPS..... there are MANY other things that can cause you grief, a plugged up fuel pressure regulator screen for one, the fuel pump going south for another....unless you REALLY know what you're doing, you need to find a good friend that does.... check the obvious things, like the fuel filter, etc and then go hunt up a fellow 'stroker to help ya with it.....

My truck does the same thing minus the water in fuel light. If i park my truck overnight with the front end of the truck facing down a little hill and i mean if its 6 inches down compared to the back of the truck i have to open the fuel bowl drain and crank it and it fires right up.

But if the front end f the thruck is 6 inches higher on a little hill i crank it its normally fires once and dies crank it again and it fires right up.

Idk y having the front end up or down a little incline makes a differance but it does in my case.

I havent been able to figure mine out either
