Question on the cold start procedure: I noticed when I crank my truck it will crank moderately quick for about 3 seconds and then speed up a little. Does it every time. Are they somehow controlling the amps to the starter or is it literally just because the oil is getting circulated to all the parts and the load on the starter frees up?You guys are brutal!
I just has a pro change my oil for me about an hour ago. Amsoil Signature 0-40
I watched and he did NOT take my oil pan off. So I've got some old oil contaminating my fresh.
I asked him to let me start it so I could pre-oiler the top-end. He said sure, but what's up?
I let him watch me spin it over while monitoring oil pressure. And as I suspected, it took a long time to see just 1 pound. More than 5 seconds!
Before I could tell him why he guessed himself! Then told me he's done a couple of timing chain /phaser repairs for customers. Said it was the first time anyone did the cold-start procedure.

It's an 18 and doesn't start instantly?My truck seems to crank longer on a cold start than it does on a hot start. I assume this is By design but couldn’t prove it. ‘18 3.5 Lariat
