My 2000 F-350 is having a really hard time starting these past couple of mornings. It takes a lot of white smoke and 1-2 minutes to get it started, and then its a really rough idle til it gets warmed up a bit. I've watched Bill Hewitts (powerstrokehelp.com) video (
) on this kind of problem and he is a huge supporter of Archoil (9100 in the oil and 6200 in the fuel). Just wondering if this actually works? Is this a pretty permanent fix?

I haven't really done any concrete testing yet besides just how it starts and how it idles for the first few minutes. After its warmed up it sounds great and runs like a champ!

Any experience at all with the 7.3? Great info in the other post though. Thanks!

Just try it. And stop watching bills videos. Sometimes, like this, he's spot on. He does have a bit of bad advice though. Come here next time you have a problem.
Thanks Patriot. What kind of bad advice does he give? Just curious.

Other people can clarify better than I can. All I'm saying is that he does have some good info, but always check here before you act on his advice. Check out Diesel Tech Ron instead.

What I got from the videos I've seen is that he throws all new parts at it when a truck goes in his shop. Not saying he doesn't know what he's talking about but his solution for most stuff is fully "bullet proofing" the 6.0. IMO he does a lot of unnecessary work. Just my .02
