Question 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?

Before any of us can really help you we need some data info. Get you some gauges (I recommend a manual one for test purposes) and lets see what your hpo readings are while driving,wot, and while cranking. Could be several things right now.

It sounds like an IPR issue possibly. Sometimes they stick and cause the issue you are having. You can remove it and try cleaning it. Be sure to get new o-rings if you do this though.
