Will my truck start

Ok I been at work all night. The temps have been in the single digits.

My truck has not been plugged in at all while at work. Right now current temp is 13 degrees. It will most likely be around the same temp when I get off work in about an hour.

So will my truck start.

I will let you all know the outcome when I get home from work. I will also post the reason for this poll at that time as well.

How long was your shift Scott. Mine will start after sitting 10-12 hours in subzero temps. You may have to let the glow plugs continue to cycle after the light goes out though

8 hours, but my truck was parked since 11:30pm, I get off at 8:00am.


I will post the reason for this when I get home. As I hope to learn something about my truck during my ride home. I will explain everything once I get home.

But I am sure the techs and mechanically inclined can already guess why I am asking.

If everything is up to par on your truck( good glowplugs and everything) then it should start without a problem.

It's not really fair to expect us to vote when we don't know all the circumstances.

Ok well I know I left out some key points. Like why would I do a poll like this.


Ok here is what I got going on.

1. Excessive cranking
2. Blue Smoke immediately at start up. Right after the truck is running for like 30 seconds the blue smoke is gone.
3. Missing one or more of the 8 cylinders


Now I spoke with a couple of people on here about this. Those people know who they are. They know what they told me.

Now I have not had a chance to look into it that much yet.

How ever things I have checked
1. glowplug relay it is good
2. scan for codes no codes found
3. when the engine is at normal operating temp. The miss is gone and the truck runs like new.

Going with what one of the great techs on here have told me. I believe he is right. Now what is the cost of the repair.

The repair that is needed is injector o-rings. At least as of right now with out actually doing a contribution or buzz test. This is what I have been told is wrong with the truck.

Let me know what you guys think. As well as the cost of the repair.

Just a couple ?'s for ya. How many miles you have on your truck? Is your truck using any oil? (is the oil level going down on the dipstick in between oil changes,and if so,about how many quarts?). I would have to say thaat the o-rings are a good possiblity,and if not also compounded with maybe a couple bad glowplugs. As far as cost wise,do you plan on doing the repair yourself or having a garage do it?

I would think that you can handle the o-rings yourself. Don't know the cost of a kit but I would say it should be substantially less than $100.
