Hello, on this engine it is usually caused by a failing glow plug module. Without working glow plugs the vehicle doesn't start well when cold.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

On the 6.0l engine usually when it wont start cold it is a failed FICM module, a scan tool hooked up to check the FICM_MPWR reading will check this, it needs to be 45volts or more to start, a new module can now be bought preprogrammed.
