7.3 starting issues with video

Here's what my truck does. Not sure how to explain but here is a video.

6AE44A1B-3DE3-49A6-8CE8-0E48CCFC9288.mp4 Video by Scott610 | Photobucket

Basically acts like it wants to start but won't full kick on.

Gp, gpr, valve cover gaskets and harness are all new and have been changed and tested. Fuel is in the fuel bowl.

What are other possible issues? I was thinking about switching to thinner oil and seeing if that helps out.

You've got a Much bigger issue than oil....

You ever see the SES light? Can you find someone with a professional scanner to monitor the sensors with as it does this?

You Could try disconnecting the plug on the ICP sensor to set a default value for the IPR to run with. Did you check the plug and sheet metal nut going to the IPR? That nut can vibrate off and allow the solenoid going over the valve to slide around. The wires going to the IPR can get brittle, crack, and short together. Make sure the plug & wires look in good shape.

Also maybe see of the HPOP reservoir is low on oil (take the Allen plug from the top and "dip" it with the wrench). Oil should be only around 1" down.

After truck does this you can let it sit for about 20mins then it'll fire right up. Have a slightly rompy idle touch gas and all is good. Truck runs awesome.

Also whenever plugged in truck starts up like a brand new one. Doesn't even need the glow plugs for assistance. What could this mean?

Truck only does this on the first initial start up of the day. After it starts perfect rest of day without issues.

I will check that whenever I can tomorrow. Does the hpop make sense tho? The truck starts fine with no issues at all whenever it is plugged in for a little bit.

It only does this during the first initial start up of the day whenever it's not plugged in.

So, it's either about Time or Temperature then...

Time could be the valve in the bottom of the HPOP not holding and allowing it to leak down but, warming the oil up shouldn't help.

Temp would be about the oils viscosity and warming with the block heater or after running some would be an indication of something other than the HPOP I'd think.

How many miles on the engine? Original Injectors?

Read the part about oil temp and injectors -> http://www.swampsdiesel.com/files/7....Diagnostic.pdf

Truck odds have a small oil leak from somewhere. Never really paid much attention to thst because it's tiny.

The engine has 150k or so on it. Original injectors.

If hpop was the problem would I be as to buy that rebuild kit for it and if so where do you get that at?

Whatever the issue is. Whenever it's plugged in it starts up with no issues

Ok well I pulled off the cap on hpop and stuck the wrench down in maybe 3/4-1" down..maybe even a little less than that but oil did show up on tip of the wrench.
