im having a problem with my 03 cummins with starting the engine refuses to start when cold unless given a tiny shot of either. it seems as though the fuel is being deadheaded when cold because once it cranks over on the either the fuel is then let in. but when the temp gauge reads over 140 it will start up withing 3-4 seconds. please help no mechanic has been able to fix this or figure out what is wrong, thanks

whats the cranking speed like. I dont know that i would use starting fluid. check you batteries, cranking slower then normal...

fill out your info, grid heater working... Lights dimming when running? fuel filter, fuel additive...?
