It could be several things. Alot of people say it's an injector sticking and going bad. Some people say you can get the latest "flash" update on your truck's computer in order to correct this problem. They say the flash will cost around $100. Injectors cost around $250 each, not counting labor to put them in. Hope it helps. I'm sure the other, more experienced techs will chime in with more detailed info.

does it clear up after it warms up? If so it could be the stiction issue with injectors. This can usually be cleared up with a reflash from ford, and sometimes using synthetic oil will help.
