i got an early 99 7.3 with a six speed stick, went to start it today and it took at least 20 second to turn over, once it did it idled at maybe 250 rpms almost dying for about another 20 seconds, then went back to normal, i thought it was weird but i havent drove it in a couple days so i thought nothing of it, driving it felt like a washing machine, didnt die but had absolutly no power till it hit about 3000rpms then it only pulled barely, any ideas?

not sure on this but could the hpop res be draining back to the pan while it is sitting. Can check through the plug hole on top of the res before you start it the next time.
