Hard to start when cold.
Ok so recently have had a cold spell here in WA, about 20-30 degrees. Went to start truck this morning and took about 5 min, I cycled pre heater every time when it finally started it ran real rough for about 30sec to 1 min. After that no issues. Now I am guessing it is probably the obvious JUST THE COLD. Granted I also did not plug her in cus I have never had these issues before. However I have never ran the truck in this cold of weather, since installing my air dog 100. Some further info when it ran rough was smoking alot etc till it warmed up a bit. After about 1 min of running shut off and it fired right up. No codes using the key trick. Also further info, I have a fairly new IP from Industrial I installed this summer, Air Dog 100 lp, and a fuel gauge set up just like moparmans at the ip for the pressure. During start and run fp was at 13-15, the entire time. Also I have not winterized my fuel at all yet. So go ahead and let me know what ya think and suggestions, also I think I have an air leak at the manifold from where I took off the old fuel filter, or maybe one at the sending unit from the air dog. I am winterizing fuel today and plugging in tonight, but I cant plug in at work and had starting issues at work yesterday (High temp of 31), it only took 3 tries yesterday at work though. Allright thanks for your help.
