One More Code

I now have code p1395 coming up on every cold start. I can clear the code after the truck is warm and it will stay off until the next morning. Truck starts fine and runs fine but still throws the same code when cold. I researched the code and found that is glow plug system related to bank one (passenger side) but I don't really know where to start next. I am guessing it is either the valve cover gasket or some glow plugs on that side? I have already replaced the GPR so I don't believe that is causing the error code. This is a Calif. truck as I believe this code only applies to the Calif. models. Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Glow plugs

I had the same issue with my 1999 7.3. Learned that in California P/Strokes's any issues with the glow plugs an error code will show. Not the same with 49 state Powerstrokes.
Replace all the glow plugs with the Bosch plugs, as the quality is better.
Pull them out carefully as the clearence is a tight fit and the ends swell when they get old or bad. If they are extremly bloated the heads have to be pulled. Also be careful with the wire connectors in the valve cover gaskets. The wires tend to be hard and brittle after awile.

Changed the valve cover gasket and inner wire harness along with all the glow plugs (two were bad). Problem solved.
