Good morning. I took my 96 Powerstroke to the mechanic last week to figure out why my turbo was not boosting correctly. Ended up being a stuck actuator in the turbo pedestal. They replaced it, turbo works fine now.

The problem is now my engine takes 5-6 seconds of cranking before it starts. Prior to the turbo pedestal replacement, after the "Wait to Start" light went off, I would just tap the starter and it would start right up. Now it's almost like it's out of timing.

They are looking at it again next week for me, but wondering if there is anything obvious it could be? It's almost like the glow plug isn't heating up on a cold day, but considering it's 100 degrees outside, I doubt that's it.
