6.0 Very Hard to Start!

truck started acting up this morning. it is a 2005 f-250 and has around 111K on it. went to start it and it took a lot longer to start than normal. problably started the truck 6-7 more times today and it seemd like it was getting worse each time. it takes about 10 seconds of cranking before it started and then it didn;t sound normal when it finally did start. Once the truck is running it seems to drive fine though. really can't afford an expensive repair right now and can't go without the truck. ANy thoughts??

The '05 did have a leaky fitting on the hpop. It is worth looking into.

i can honestly say I wish i woudl have never bought this truck. Would take a HUGE loss if I was able to sell it, diesel is really expensive, truck gets poor fuel mileage, and the 6.0 is a POS that is unbeleivably expensive to work on. I do love the looks of the truck and when it is running it is fun to drive.

truck died to day on the way to the dealer. Very dangerous, almost cuased an accident when i lost powersteering and brakes in a turn. I am so pissed b.c this is a known problem. The dealer showed me several busted HPOP connectors that they had replaced. Now i have to come out of pocket $700-1000 to fix a design flaw by ford.
