Long crank to start time cold or warm
I have a late 99 7.3 with 287,925 miles on it and it takes a few good seconds of cranking for it to fire up. Doesnt matter if its warm or cold but more so when cold. So i think my glow plugs are fine. When its a cold start just a small amount of white smoke but after a little bit of idling it clears up. Other than starting the engine runs strong and idles just fine. So i think my injectors are still fine. Like i said not only when cold i could be going through a fast food drive thru and when i shut the truck off to place my order, and go to start it, it doesnt fire right up it takes a few seconds. Is my hpop getting weak? What could be the deal here?
