TROUBLE STARTING HELP PLEASE

I have an 04 6.0. i was in north ga this past weekend. It was somewhere in the 40's. when i went to crank my truck up sat morn it took 5 minutes for it to crank. when at home ive been keeping the block heater plugged up and it fires right up in the am. tuesday it was in the 60s so i didnt plug it up and had trouble starting that morning. i work 12hr shift so my truck is in the parking lot a long time. like i said it was in the 60s yesturday and when i went to leave work i sat in the parking lot 15 mins trying to crank my truck. it will crank up for 1sec and cut off. then eventually it will start running really bad and the whole truck shakes and it cuts off. it does that about 3 times then evens out and runs great. is there something going on with my glow plugs or what? i do turn the key wait for the light turn it off turn it back on and so on and it doesnt work. any help is appreciated. oh and it also had an sct program on it. doubt that makes a difference though

Exactly what my truck did.

Exactly.

I fixed it by changing my oil. No kidding. Read the link in my sig.

It's called Stiction.
