This truck is a new addition for me, it has 130,000 miles and is a god truck with the exception ofthis one problem. The problem is when it is cold it just cranks and cranks, until it warms up or the battery runs down. This happens when the outside temp is 50 degrees or below. If I plug in the block warmer over night it cranks up without any problems. It has been put on the computer and no codes, but of course it is warm by then, living way out in country I can't just drop it off. The throttle body has been changed as well as all regular tune up components. If I make a quick trip and lots of stops, it does fine. If my stop is for several hours, now that it is winter, and I can't plug in the block warmer I have to crank it for a long time before it will warm up and then start.
