97 7.3 Problems
Last night my (new to me) truck started acting up:
- 1st, it had been doing this thing recently where shortly after starting the pitch of the engine got pretty deep for probably 2-3 seconds and then it would return to normal sound.
- It took several cranks before finally starting. This morning when I tried to start, it took even longer and started to self rev when it stared (almost sounded like it was to keep it from cutting back off)
- It started idling and running rough
- When you turn it off there is a weird sound coming from the fuel tanks, almost like a gurgle or sloshing sound (I didnt even drive it anywhere when it made this sound)
We have had our first colder weather here in TN and I dont know if that may have something to do with it (it was low 50s last night)
Any help would or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I hate to see my 2 month old truck with only 113k miles already giving me problems, after I had it checked out and everyone told me how good these things are...
oh, and before anyone asks, it does have a half tank of diesel and I have been letting the glow plugs warm up...
