I've been a member here for a while, but ive just been lurking in the shadows, but anyway, lately my 7.3 has been starting a bit harder than when i first got it, it just seems to take a bit more cranking before it fires. What could be causing it to do that? it does it even at operating temp. i can shut it off and restart it seconds later and it still does it. when i first got it, it would pretty much pop right off, now its takin a bit longer, im just worried about it gettin worse and leavin me stranded. it runs great otherwise. as far as maintenance goes, ive only had it a few months, im gettin close to doin the first oil change. the previous owner took really good care of it and kept up on the maintenance.
