I'm new to forum and diesels.....
It Seems like alot of people here really have their stuff together and I am Ignorant to the world of diesels. Bear with me though, I am trying to learn..
I recently (Last Friday) bought my 2005 king ranch F-250 and LOVE IT!!! It is my dream ride and I am finally at a place in my life where I can afford it! Anyway, she is bone stock except for Wheels and tires.
Here is the problem, When I go out to the truck first thing in the morning to start it, it runs terrible, but doesn't stall. It takes 2-3 miles of Low power and revving out before shifts before she acts right. I've read about cold starts, but I live in south Georgia, is this cold enough to cause the same thing northerners experience on cold days? Every other start for the rest of the day seems just fine, even if it has sat for 4-5 hours.
If I start it in the morning and let it sit for 5-10 minutes before I get going it is fine.
I did a search and it seems everyone else experiencing this is in a much colder climate than I am.
Thanks for any help...
