99 7.3 Starting Issues (never heard that one before)
Hey guys I need some help. The truck has 218,000 on it. The truck has 2 problems. The first and most serious is it's becoming hard to start. I'll turn the key and it'll just crank and crank but won't start. I'll let off the key, wait a second, and it'll crank a bit more and then finally start. Sometimes I have to crank it 3 times.
The truck is totally stock other than a Tymar and a striaght pipe.
The second problem is an electrical bug. Whenever I turn the key off, the radio will still stay on, even with the key out of the ignition. Also it will intermittently leave the marker lights on, even with the switch off. The windows always work, too, regardless of key position.
I've just been popping the fuse under the hood that all of those accessories are on, but it's a real PITA sometimes.
I'm not too concerned about the electrical part right now, but please, I need some help with the starting issue.
