2002 hd, for the last week I've been having a problem starting my truck. Usually it turns over and starts instantly, for about the last 5 days it takes about three or four seconds of turning the key to get it to kick over. Any ideas or should I just take it to the shop. I did just put in some Chevron tech(something) for injector cleaners.

Fuel pressure regulator would be the first thing I would look at.

Question: Does it take 3-4 seconds of cranking to fire, or 3-4 seconds to START cranking? If there's a delay between turning the key and the engine cranking, look to the electric system. Check the battery cables. If it cranks for a few seconds before firing, it could be the fuel pressure regulator.

3-4 Seconds of cranking to fire and start. Mostly when engine warm or smie warm.

The Fuel Pressure Regulator is a common problem with the '00-02s. If you turn the key on, then wait 5 seconds or so (for the fuel pressure to build up) then it will start right away when you crank it over.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
