Got a couple of issues

I got a couple things going on that Im not sure about.
Truck- 2002 f250. Intake, exhaust, PHP chip. 140,000miles

Issue #1- I had a thread a little while ago about my starter grinding/free spinning every once in a while. It was also a little slower than normal to start. Replaced starter with db electric high tq starter. The grinding issue is gone and the motor spins over faster but it still a little slow to start. Now by slow I mean like a cold start every time(about a 2-3mississippi count), it used to fire up immediatley.
Any ideas on whats going on with it? Is something starting to wear out or fail?

Issue #2- On my first trip of the day when truck is cold my tranny doesnt want to shift into overdrive until like 65mph. Once it warms up everything goes back to normal and it shifts fine.
Any ideas on whats going on with it? If anything?

My red truck is slow to start, cranks over a while, then fires. Yellow truck takes almost as long to fire up... both get plugged in every chance I get when it's cold.

As to the auto trans, if it's still kinda cold, it will hold drive for longer, my auto truck holds out on the OD shift just like you're discribing. I sugjest letting it warm up longer before you take off... less of an issue when plugged in and already somewhat warmed up.

The slow starting this could be fuel pressure, are you throwing any codes? How full is your tank? It also could be just slightly weak injectors, but nothin to worry bout. Is this a plugged in start or a cold soaked just gp start?

And yeah the trans shift is normal. If you can spend like a mile or 2 on side roads till your tranny gets up to temp that should help

Thanks Crawler.
Well its not that cold here lately. I plug it in when its in the teens or 20's. I remote start it while im getting my stuff together so it normal idles anywhere from 5-10 mins. Its been doing this slow start since summer.

This is a glow plug or plugged in start, it was 40 degrees this morning so not plugged in today. Tank is always 1/4 or higher. My remote start is set to run gp's for 20 sec before start up. I havent tried to pull any codes, but I dont have any lights on. I was thinking maybe along the lines of low fuel or oil pressure but not sure.

How new are your batteries? Slow cranking= low HPOP= slow start. Guess it could also be low fuel pressure... my yellow truck has been starting a little quicker now that I replaced the fuel bowl drain o-rings a few months ago... will do that to the red truck soon, to see if it helps it start quicker...

Batteries and alternator are about 8 months old. I had to do my drain orings about a year and a half ago. Its cranks fast just starts slow. The high tq starter help the slow cranking.

And I just changed my oil,filter and fuel filter 2 weeks ago.
