7.3 power stroke - Wait to start buzzer sounds when giving trouble. What could cause this?

I just bought this truck 80% of the times of it runs great but the other times it starts to give this trouble. It does this in gear and in neutral. I have owned two Cummins diesels in the past but I have never had any problems.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check compressions hot and check fuel delivery system, check for contamination in the fuel. I would be looking at the lift pump and the high pressure pump. Power strokes have a habit of failures with these items.
You need a good truck shop that can diagnose it correctly for you and give you a bid.

Yes, Cummings are great engines with very little issues.
