7.3L Strange starting problem.
Hey guys I was reading about other starting problems but couldn't find anything that was similar to mine. MY truck starts fine when the engine is cold, and starts fine when I plug it in on cold nights. The problem is when it is at operating temp, and I shut it down then go to start it back up a couple of minutes later or second later it turns over fast but takes a longer time to fire. instead of the normal like 2-3 seconds it may take like almost 5. The glow plug light usually isn't on very long (I assume because the engine is warm, but I don't know.) I just changed the fuel filter like 6000 miles ago and the oil was changed like 150 miles ago. I'm not sure how old the batteries are, but like I said it turns over fast. Any ideas? As always thanks in advance.
