Hello to all. The truck has 60,000 miles. The problem is that it developed a prolonged cranking time issue about two years ago when the engine is warm. It starts every time, but it would crank for up to 15 seconds before it would start. When cold, it would fire right up. About a year ago, it reversed itself. Now when cold, it takes 5 to 10 seconds to start. When warm, it starts immediately. It has a new battery and cranks strong all the time. I can hear the fuel pump firing up when the key is turned to on position. Any ideas? If you need more info, let me know. Plugs, wires, serpentine belt changed at 50,000 miles. It does have a very slight, noticed only in the tach, drop in RPM at idle. And it pings like an SOB under load. Dealer says it is supposed to do that. Even gave me a print out stating this. I don't know if this helps, but I wanted to give as much info as possible.
