I have a 2000 7.3 that I recently replaced the CMP/CPS with a ford factory replacement and a few weeks later now I am having a hard/long start issue. I replaced the CPS due to reverse stalling not starting.
Starting takes some time, no matter ambient temp, I live in Florida so cold weather isn't a remote factor. I could have just driven the truck 1k miles and shut it off and try to fire it right back up and I have the same issue as if I were to come out first thing in the morning or let it sit for a week and try to fire it up.
Truck runs once started which takes 5-10 seconds now and use to take about 2 if that to start. I will say she seems to get a little sluggish at WOT but if I back out a little bit she will stretch her legs. I also have noticed that when she gets sluggish that my EGT's go higher than they use to.
In the last two years I have replaced-
HPOP- terminator 500
LPOP- melling pump I believe it is
Injector O-rings with factory rings
CPS/CMP Factory part
All new glow plugs
I do have the hypertech programmer on it which has been on for over 6mo and haven't had any issues from it other than constant codes being thrown p1316, and a few others that are consistent and aren't new. I have an edge insight inboard that I constantly monitor.
I have an extra CMP/CPS sensor that I bought from ford to keep in the glovebox incase I have an issue driving to Guam and don't want to stop to find one. But I didn't want to use it yet since I can't believe that within a month or so it has gone bad. Any ideas? I have read several different threads on this and haven't seen anything that is jumping out at me.
I believe that is all the info for now, any ideas?
