Chris is right.

CR Injectors are know to fail internally which when they do the pintle needle never seats closed so the injector is constantly pissing fuel in the cylinder. This makes it tough for the CP3 to build pressure hence why you need a burst of ether to build enough rail pressure to get it to pop.

Watch this it will help you understand CR injectors.

Not to say CSnyder or any of you are wrong bit wouldn't his mileage be in the crapper with bad injectors. 21 MPG makes me wonder if his rail is draining back to the tank over night. To the OP will the truck restart right after it is shut down?

I didn't think about the mileage part..... I wish he would come back and tell us what the problem was.

Nope typically you will never see a loss in mileage with bad internal seals on a CR injector. There isnt a way for the rail to drain back except through the injectors. The rails dont hold pressure after you shut the truck down either.

Thank you, I never knew this. I guess the old saying is right you learn something new everyday!

Here you go Tom.........A little long but I now know the problem! You guy's were right, kinda!
I had started a previous thread about a problem first with a cold start and then with a total "no start" issue back about a year ago, maybe on Diesel Bombers though. I was in total denial that I had an injector problem because of the fact that the truck would run like a Swiss watch after I start it with ether, COLD or HOT starts! I just couldn't convince myself to spend 1500-3000 on injectors without knowing it truly was the problem! So I saw the opportunity to purchase (2) "new" injectors at a reasonable price and bought them. THE OUTCOME......... I had the #1 and #2 replaced yesterday and to my amazement I went outside this morning at around 10 below and started the truck without even plugging it in! Sum beach! "It's the friken injectors! It's apparent I don't have a nozzles or spray issue but a flow back from the injector causing a no pressure start! Thus the reason it runs like a Swiss watch when running! So! How long before the other 4 can't take the pressure and go bad??? Another thing I noticed is the injectors are not as quiet as before the change. Any input on steering me in the right direction would be appreciated! It also seems to run not as smooth, will it get better on it's own? Any break in so to speak? Will they get quieter? What's next guys!
I should have listened to you experts earlier!
But hey! IT STARTS NOW!

I would start saving for the injectors, as they go bad at about 150-170k. This way you will be ready.

There should be no 'break in' for the injectors.
