Slow to start

Truck seems to crank longer than usual to start lately. Thought it might be GPR and ordered the Stancor, but last nite I plugged it in even though it was warm out and when I started it this morning the wts light went off right away as expected. And it cranked for a long time to start again but as soon as it fired it started right up. Could it be starving for fuel at start up? Have efuel on way so it might answer my question. Any input would be appreciated this is my first powerstroke always ran cummins before.

check your batteries. what year do the stickers say on them? either that, or the starter is worn out.

Even tho the WTS light goes out, the glow plugs will be on up too two minutes at a time. The light has no indication of how long they are actually on. Your relay may be bad and since you ordered one already put it in. I think your fuel is just fine. My guess is that your batteries are on their way out. If they are over three years old, replace them with a good quality battery. You need to remember that these motors are damn reliable and that it is usually the simple and obvious things that go bad.

I had the same problem, put in a Stancor relay, still had the problem. I put in new batteries and that solved it, was like a brand new truck after that.

If your batteries are good, then I would think your starter is shot. Solenoid is worn out
