Hard starting and injector timing
I own a 97 powerstroke F250 4x4 with 120,000 miles. This has been a very reliable vehicle until the last year starting has gotten harder. The first start of the day takes 4 or 5 tries then runs fine, maybe down on power a little. If i stop and shut it off the restart is very rough like the injector timing is off. If i wait about 30 min. it will start and run ok. I have kept maintence up, oil,fuel filters,ect. about 2 years ago i replaced glow plugs and relay.I have never any abnormal service lights to come on.
I hate to have to take it into a dealer to fix it but the problem is getting worse and i don't trust it anymore.
