Question Truck takes longer to start WITH glow plugs...

Hey, thanks in advance for answering my question. This place is great!

Anyway, I have been noticing that if I let my wait to start light go out on the dash and then start the truck, it takes 2-3 seconds of cranking before it runs, BUT if I start it right away (its like 90deg. here) It will start in 1-2 seconds. It doesn't matter if its the first start of the day, or if it has just been shut off 5 mins ago. Batteries are brand new 875CCA.

No smoke, no romps, no rough running.

What could be 'causing' this, or is it just the way it is. It's one of those things that doesnt bother me, as long as I know it isnt a sign of problems.

Same problem here. I'm putting a new starter in soon. I've heard about the stater causing this weird problem.

same thing happens with mine, and many others. a simple solution i use is not waiting to start when it is warm out.
