Hi - from Southern Illinois

We (my wife, actually) recently bought a 2001 F-350 PSD, 6spd manual dually that has replaced a '97 F-150 FX4. The truck has a 4" exhaust and a scorpion programmer. Will be occasionally pulling about 14000# of farm equipment.
The truck drives great with power to spare but has a few bugs to work out such as the cruise control doesn't work and it will not start below 40* unless plugged in for a couple of hours. Will do some archive searching first but will probably be asking several questions. Prawnfarmer

Welcome to the .org! As far as your no cold start problem I'd start by checking your glow plug relay, its a simple fix and fairly cheap to replace if its bad. If that's not it then your glow plugs likely need replaced.
