1997 deisel tough starting

1997 ford deisel starts hard after the wait to start light ... only this year .. if I turn the ignition off and try to restart ... without use of the glow plugs it will start right up many times. many times if I FOLLOW THE RULES and wait for the light to go out it may take 5-10 tries. But if I turn it all the way off and retry it will start right up ???

Lol...yup, the "Powerjoke" diesel.....my acronym for their "Powerstroke" engine. Noisy and clattery .

How's the quality of the fuel you are using? Recent maintenance on the truck?

Does www.alldata.com show anything in the service bulletin or recall area?

The Powerjoke is made by Navistar for Ford actually
