This morning I went outside to start my truck to go to work, they engine turned over but wouldn't start? The truck had been sitting all weekend(Block heater not plugged in) It got down in the single digits over the weekend. After it warmed up to about 35 degrees the truck started right up. Is it possible I am having a glow-plug issue? This is the first time this has ever happened....

Thanks,

might be a fuel gel issue, are you using any type of fuel additive?

Agree, sounds fuel related, especially if the fuel filter has lots of miles on it!

if you dont use any fuel additives i would recommend howes additive. You can find them at any truck stop. I use it in mine all the time and my dad uses it in all the semi trucks and we never have any problems and i never use my block heater

Ill throw a vote in for fuel related. I know that gas companies put additives in to avoid gelling. Since you live in Maryland the companies might not put additives in because the temps rarely go low enough to cause gelling.

No mater what Id replace your fuel filter extreamly soon. I have heard of filters causing problems if not changed every 10,000 miles. If your filter has gel in it it will cause low fuel pressure. :spit:
