      Server Slowness & Strange behavior   03/15/2018

      I'm aware of the server and the site speed being weird. Might find strange server error messages and other things happening randomly. What I do know is the hard drive is hitting 100% load randomly and driving the server load up high. Then for no reason, the hard drive returns back to normal loads and server load drops. I've got the hosting company watching this and attempting to find a solution. I apologize for the performance issues... Thanks for understanding...

Harder starting when warm?

Recommended Posts

Everyone,Well my truck has done this for a little while, but thought I would ask and see what people say. The truck starts great in the morning everytime. It seems to mostly do the harder starter (when it has to crank a few more times to start) when the engine is warm. I'm going to start to watch and see if that is a rule with it or not. The VP is new for the second time on 7/23/2010 from Midwest Fuel Injection. The first one was replaced on 1/11/2010. Fuel pressure is good, no codes and the truck runs great otherwise with high 17s or 18s mpg on average. Any thoughts guys??:shrug:Also I should say it did this a few times after I put the new VP on, then I tighten the injector lines and it didn't seem to do it again. But recently I started doing it again. Doesn't always do it and it doesn't seem to matter if the truck is facing up or down hill...:ahhh:Thanks,Winslow

That's a tough one... I want to say try pulling the lift pump lead and seeing if the truck start easy without the lift pump at start time. Possibly a weak diaphragm? Too much cranking pressure? :shrug:

Tell me about it. It doesn't look on the gauge to be too high, but you never know. What's strange is it doesn't do it all the time. I might try the lift pump idea and see what happens. I've tried not to let it bother me as that will only make my mad, but figured I would try to get some ideas on it!:thumbup2:
