have you checked the oil level?
oil change might not be a bad idea too if it hasnt been done in awhile.
i have 240k miles and my truck starts just fine. was 15 degrees last night and went out to work this morning and she fired right up. not plugged in and still original injectors and hpop
also synthetic oil helps.
blow by out the cap is normal, if you flip the cap over and it blows it off then you have problems.
if the cap just vibrates off your fine.
most stock gp relays burn up within 6 months to a year. white rodgers/stancor gp relay is wayyy better than stock
motorcraft glow plugs are the only way to go.
also look into getting new uvch, 40 bucks each from dieselorings.
verify you are getting correct oil pressure at startup.
pull the icp and if theres oil coming through it buy a new one.
if you really want something to scan the truck and read all the vitals the AE with ford package is the way to go.
