rough running after cold start?

Hello guys,

Ive got an 06 PSD with 82,000 and I have noticed lately since its finally gotten cold down here, central Mississippi that when I crank my truck after sitting over night and the temp drops into the 30's my truck sounds like its missing badly. if you give it a little gas right after it cranked you can feel the whole truck shake. and after its idled a few minutes and I leave the house I can still feel the miss while driving off.

Ive had the computer checked and there are no DTC's and i went ahead and replaced both batterys. It cranks alot better but still has the miss when the morning temp is about 40deg or lower.

Im thinking its got to be in the glowplugs but am not sure. Have any of you guys run into the same thing?

Thanks,
Jerid

I have mine in the shop now for this problem. I brought it to a real mechanic this time instead of a parts changer at the dealership. My mechanic told me that there is an updated flash to fix this problem. He owns a 6.0 himself and he knows. I will know more this afternoon.

If you scan for codes I bet it's the FICM. Mine did the same 2 weeks ago. Code P0261 - P0283. I think that was the ramge. FICM has to be replaced. Mine was running at 17.5v should be at 48.0v.

Exactly what mine is doing also...this is why i just signed onto the forum here. Im getting the code for cylinder 1 and cylinder 4 distribution. So this is my first time with a diesel...where can i get a new fuel injector control module at? Could the EGR also possibly cause this to happen as i am throwing the p0487 code.

Not trying to hijack the thread just other solutions

Do yall think the reason I havent found any codes is because Ive got a Hypertech that I use to check for codes and its just not picking them up?

Whats got me thinking glow plugs is it only does it when it get below 40deg overnight. and after its been run, it wont do it again till the next morning if its gotten cold enough.

And please do let me know what turn up on yalls truck when you get them back from the shop.

Thanks,

Jerid

I just spoke to my mechanic. Ford just came out with a new flash and he downloaded it a couple of days ago. It fixed my cold start problem.
