7.3 with long/ cold start issue and new parts.

Ive been having a slow start ever since ive bought the truck. Also its never started when cold unless plugged in. It cranks for about 7 sec when warm.

Does it do the long crank every time you shut it off? If you have it running good, shut it off then immediately try and restart it will it fire right up or still crank for a long time? Just wondering if you aren't losing fuel pressure when it's shut off. Have you checked the oil level in your HPOP? Oh and put a new CPS in to rule that out.

It long cranks every time. Oil in rez is full. I have not tried a cps. I figured it runs well but just long crank it couldnt be a cps.

I have seen the top o-rings blow out and leak into just under the top of the injector. If you have a way to read your icp psi while cranking and see if the psi comes up slow.

Batteries, 850CCA min. Clean connections, good batteries.
GP and GPR. MAKE SURE they're operating right and ohm out right. Just new out of box means nothing.
Check the UVCH wiring. That supplies power to the GPs.

Ok then I'd think high pressure oil first, then maybe fuel.

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.
