Huntin' an idle!
I may be in over my head here but I sure could use some advice. My '99 F250 7.3 sure is havin' trouble getting started. Outside temps don't really matter. It's 70 degrees out in the afternoon and if she's been sittin' and cold she hunts for an idle and makes some nice white smoke. When it is cold (30's) outside it takes a few attempts to even get to the rough idle and has to run for while before she has enough power to move.
If I plug in the block heater a couple hours prior to start she starts up, no problem, and runs great.
This truck is stock, new batteries and a new alternator.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. But go easy boys, I'm no mechanic!!
BTW: She's got 108K miles.
