very weird cold start this morning
It was 3 degrees last night, and about 8 degrees when i started up my truck this morning. Truck was NOT plugged in, and I cycled the plugs for 40 seconds each time 5 times. I cranked it, it cranked for 2-3 seconds like normal fires up, idles at 900 drops to 700 for a second and cuts out. It did this twice and then it was perfectly fine. I have never had any issues before, does this sound like an FICM thing? I have the VXCF7 FICM flash right now with a VXCF4 Looney wild tune loaded right now.
Any insight here? Keep in mind where i live at school my apt complex has no out door outles, i've been starting unplugged all winter even at -9 degreed F and no issues whatsoever
Thinking it could be the FICM starting to go on the fritz, or maybe the stc fitting leaking? Oil pressure reading at 80psi at idle on a cold start and fuel pressure dead on a 59 psi at start up.
