6.0 power stroke 2004

My 2004 6.0 power stroke runs good after it warms up but sometime when I'm driving doin aroun 50 or 60 the truck acts like its wants to kill, when I get off the gas for a couple of secs and get back on the gas it runs fine, sometime it'll do that a couple of time, the little gas signs with the water drops will appear but goes off. if i don't let it warm up and i take off it will kill. please help. the dealer put it on the machine but didn't show anything. Thanks

Drain your water/fuel separator. Maybe pick up some Rex-X, you could have a stiction issue in the injectors. Possibly, your turbo vanes could be sticking, what does your boost do when it acts up on the hwy at 50-60?

First step is definitely to drain the water separator located on the frame rail under the driver's seat (under the truck) and proceed from there.

How many miles are on this truck?
