My first question would be, do you have any experience driving a truck with the 7.3 or living with a Diesel truck in general?

I might suggest registering the '90, and living with it a while. The...

The truth is, that cold can highlight any number of starting issues.

Aging lift pump, IP, injectors, glo plugs, and so forth.
