Truck starts different now

Hello,
I have a 2006 F-250 that bought new. It has been a great truck so far. I have just over 90,000 miles on it now.
It has always started the same way since the day I bought it. A week ago I went out to go to work and it turned over for a second or more than it ever had before. Now that seems to be the way it starts all the time. I know it must be hard on my starter.
This is the first diesel I have ever owned, and sadly I know not much about them. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You, Jeff Mauro

have the temperatures dropped? how old are the batteries? do you have a monitor? 2006 could also mean its time for stand pipes dummy plugs and the STC fitting. you may also have developed a small oil pressure leak. Find a way to get the FICM checked and ICP numbers checked and the batteries load tested out of the truck one at a time.

if you dont already have one order a monitor for your truck it will save you tons of money in the long run. 300-400 bucks. get a scan gauge 2 or something like an edge insight.

I just had this same problem with mine. Ended up being an oil leak, went for updated dummy plugs/stand pipes and got a STC fitting as well.
