Cold start Problem
Ok now that it's getting cold I'm sure it's getting to sound like a broken record on here.
First a lil history, I was having issues with white smoke. Did EGR delete, made to smoke lighter, but still smoked.
Called Ford said they wouldn't touch it cuz it's been modified and recommended a mechanic that does.
Brought it to him said it was 3-4 bad injectors, the turbo, and fuel pump needed to be changed. Changed all $5k worth of parts.
Ok it stopped smoking and even before it was fixed never had a problem with the cold all last year.
I swapped out the batteries as well from my dually before trading it in, the truck had interstate in it before i swapped with duralast gold.
I read alot of threads about the FICM I will test that this afternoon, but to me it seems like the truck worked better when all the problems were wrong except for spraying for mosquitoes at traffic lights.
I haven't gone and got the batteries tested but they're not even a year old, could that be the problem.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated, sorry for the lenghty thread.
