Long crank to start time, more so when warm. 1999 7.3
My truck takes a few seconds longer than normal to fire over. I bought it with 287k miles and ive just hit 289k on it. Its been like this since i bought it. Seems to run decent, no hesitation, skipping, missing, ect. I have since serviced all fluids and filters, changed cps, ipr, replaced leaky oil line that goes from hpop to cyl head (driver side). So now it runs decent, no leaks, just takes longer than it should to crank over, oddly more so when warm. What could be the deal here? Im starting to think/hope that the starter is just getting wore out, doesnt seem to spin nearly as fast as it should. Batterys/charging system good. 3/99 eng build date.
