wait to start??

Just bought my first diesel anew 6.4 and there's no wait to start light ok the dash. I drove older diesels before and had to wait for the glow plugs. Do you have to do the same even though there's no light? I don't want to ruin this thing

There is a wait to start light (squiggly line by parking brake light) but the technology in these trucks is so advanced that it will not come on unless absolutely necessary and even then only for a second or two.

Yeah the glow plug symbol comes on - the squiggly lines - . Hardly see it in the summer but during winter months I give it a bit before starting.
