99 SD F350 7.3l Not Starting

Truck doesn't start unless I spray wd40 in the air intake. Once it starts it runs great. Any ideas?

Is this only when cold or when warm too?

stop spraying stuff in the intake now,
these trucks do not take ether, wd 40 or any starting fluid, EVER

are you having cold start issues?

read the sticky about winter, hard starts etc.

these trucks also come equipped with a block heater, if yours has never been used its tied up behind the grill drivers side.
use this until you get the glow plug system working like it should be
