05 F350, high mileage near 280k, start - no start
I have an 05 F350 Service Body truck with about 280k miles. It is a company vehicle that I need to sell. Problem is sometimes it starts, other times it does not. CEL is on, but only code is for #2? glow plug. I also have a handheld where I can see FICM voltage and lots of other things. FICM is 48v almost constant, never dipping too low. Been there with that problem in the past on another 6.0 work truck.
I do not want to dump any money into this truck, just need it to start every time so it can be sold. In addition to being a hard start, it also has to crank for a long time before it fires off. Would any of this point to anything in particular, things to check? I know the truck needs an injector or 2, at leas that is what the local Ford dealer told us, but I don't trust them any further than I can throw them.
Thank you in advance for pointers and advice.
