New here, slow start
Hey guys, I'm new to the forum, recently bought my first diesel. I have done a search for this issue, but the threads I found either didn't have quite the same problem or suggested a solution that I've already tried.
I purchased a late 99 F250 EXT Cab 4x4 a couple of months ago. Just over 130K miles. XL with a manual transmission. Love the truck. Pulls everything I want it to and is fun to drive. When I bought the truck, it had been sitting for awhile. In 2004, it had 114K on it, and like I said, it's now just over 130K. I got a great deal on it, and budgeted to put some money into it. It turns over great and starts up after 3-5 seconds. Not a long time I know, but my brothers 7.3 fires right up. I figured I would get to know my truck a little better and do some work that may not have needed to be done because it had been sitting. I replaced the batteries, the GPR, all the GP's, and the CPS on top of doing new tires, new brakes etc. It still doesn't fire right up. Cold outside, warm outside, after driving 200 miles and then stopping for gas, doesn't matter. It's always takes a few extra turns to fire. Any suggestions?
Also, anything else that it's just a good idea to replace after it sitting awhile?
