Truck cranks and cranks then starts

Hey all I have recently been letting my truck sit and have only put about 30 miles on in the last month and I am having a hard start issue. The truck cranks for 10 or15 seconds then starts and runs fine most of the time sometimes it romps then smooths out but once it romped a couple times then died. I am not sure where to begin I do not have access to a scanner or anything like that right now but am going crazy because my truck is not perfect right now any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

The batteries are 4 years old and I did hook up the battery charger for about 30 min and left it hooked up and started with the same result lots of cranking before starting

Batteries and Starter are the first things to check. Sounds to me like you need batteries though if the starter seems to crank fine.

Might be time for some new glow plugs too. Or a relay. Milage? ever put glow plugs or a relay in?

Glow plug relay fixed my neighbor's when it did that. Get a spare while you're at it.

if it is the gpr get the stancor/white rodgers relay.

check your oil level. when my oil was low it did this.

might be time for a oil change too?

well if your oil is only 3k old i wouldnt change, just verify it is at the correct level.
pull the icp and see if theirs oil coming through.


make sure you are getting fuel to the fuel bowl as well.
