Hi, my truck has a hard time starting up after being parked for a couple of hours. In the morning and after work, I insert key turn the ignition forward and the engine
cranks what seems to be too long until the engine turns over and idles perfectly. I've left the engine running for 15min then shut the engine off wait a minute and proceed to start the engine again and it starts right a way. My vehicle is a 2006 Ford F-250 6.0 turbo diesel 4x4 crew cab pickup. It seems that the pickup has a hard time starting right a way when the engine is cold or sits for a couple of hours. I've bought new batteries, alternator
, glow plugs, glow plug harness, and glow plug control module thinking it would fix the problem and it did for about 2 months until the symptoms show up again. WTF can I DO to fix this???
