2001 Slow Start
Now that I got the truck running I want to fix some other issues. The truck when cold cracks for a couple seconds before running. When hot it takes 5 or 6 seconds. My 99 PSD takes about a half a second. Could the injectors be leaking down? What else could cause this? I plan on replacing glow plugs soon. Could this cause it on a 80+ degree day? It also has a puff of white smoke at start up then it clears quickly if that means anything.
Any ideas? I have to drive this truck a few thousand miles in a couple weeks and want to get back.
BTW. the 2001 has 425K my 99 has 441K so I would think the 2001 should start as easy as the 99 does.
