Strange cold start symptom, 2003 Edge 4.0
Hi guys. I have had my beast for about a month or so. Has 130k on it and the starter had a bearing noise when it would spin down so I figured I'd replace it b4 winter. The other day before I replaced it though, When it cranked it halted almost like timing was too far advanced or a low battery but then continued to crank and started fine. Like a hiccup, for lack of a better description. Battery is fairly new and tested good so I thought "yeah that old starter is outa' there". Well, it did the same thing yesterday with the new starter. Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem. It's only done it twice but I'm trying to avoid a kick in the ballistics from her some morning in winter. There will be enough other things that will do that for sure. Should I look at a possible timing issue? I figure the ecm should take care of all that but being this truck is new to me I'm putting it out there.
Thanks for any input/insight.
