Long crank time when air or motor is cool
I have an 01 7.3 and it has always fired up within about 2 seconds and here the past week, in Tennessee so temps are 80 or so and low being 65, it has not wanted to start first thing in the morning or if it has sat all day long without being started. Wanting to crank for 10-15 seconds then i let it rest and turn key off then back on and crank again for another 10-15. having to do that a couple times. No smoke during or after being started. Only mod is exhaust and selectable chip.
It will start within about 5 seconds if it has been running recently.
I changed the gpr and its having the same problem, this morning it took about 10 seconds to start the thing, I know some guys that say thats normal, well not for mine lol
What do you guys think, and if i left some info out just let me know.
and also sorry for my horrid spelling
