So what's the harm of digging up an old thread? Better than starting a new one, IMO.

I don't believe I read thru this whole thread and wasted my time. The OP's problem was never solved from what I read. Let me find something that I can learn more of.

I'm with you Dwayne BUT...This is the classic case of someone who looks for help from members then for whatever reason, fails to complete the thread when/if he fixes the truck. To learn the most, there has to be a solution which solved the problem...without the OP giving that feedback to the board, the majority of the learning is lost.

Neal in fantasyland: I wish that when a person had a problem and started a thread, they had to put up a $5 deposit that was refundable when the problem was solved and he posted the solution.

I know this is an old post (please don't kill the messenger), but was there a resolution on the problem? Did the Op sell the truck or fix it?

WHAT HAPPENED????

im having the same issue with my truck it will not start without a shot
of brake clean.been doing this for about a week trying to get into a shop
i trust in my area to scan my codes.this started after a 40 mile run doing
75 mph...and by the way its got a e4od trans as well.always been kinda
rough to start when at operating temp but it would start.i use rotella 15w40
engine oil with a gallon of lucas because it makes me feel good not sure if
the truck likes it but it never says anything bad about it.i have replaced
one injector last may and it runs ok.seems to idle rough .i replaced the glow
plug relay today with high hopes . no better dont have any fuel leaks and
i dont see any oil in the intake valley.change my oil every 3k mabey over
kill but again makes me feel good.and the truck has 322k on it. help
oh and just in case it matters i added new motorcraft glow plugs and
harness at injector replacement.batterys are hot and she turns over
with out any issue.

Bob with 322k on the clock, your injectors are about done.
The hard starts when warm indicate HPO (high pressure oil) leak, likely injector o-rings. You can get a bluetooth OBDII adapter and the TorquePro app and scan your own codes for less than any shop will charge. Finding a shop that knows much about a 7.3 can be tough. Not even the dealers know them.

Welcome aboard.
