Cold Start. Stiction or Glowplug???

Hi Everybody,
Looking to get peoples input on whats going on with my 05 f350 105,000 miles. At 40 Degrees in the morning without being plugged in, my truck cranks alot and is hard to start. when it starts, it smokes blue and black and chugs for about 30 seconds. It has to warm up for ten minutes or I cant even drive it, It bogs out and wont shift and smokes blue.........If i plug in the block heater, it starts right up and runs good.......I ve been browsin the forums for weeks trying to point me but wanted to see if this happens to anyone else.... by the way no check engine light... thanks

sounds more like a classic case of injector stiction more than glowplugs..

Switching to 5w40 Synthetic oil and using 8 oz. of rev x should take care of it...

Thanks Pizza Pig..nice name by the way....so that REV-X stuff is really that good?? Can somebody explain what it really does and how. I know its so expensive but I guess if it works its worth it. My truck runs horrible by the way. I hate it.

It really does work, flat out. People testing their oil after a certain amount of miles turns up that there is a noticeable amount high concentration of potassium and sodium in the oil.... Who knows, i dont really care as long as it works its worth the money.. better that than an injector going out!

Its chemical formula removes the soot deposits and crap from non synthetic oils that builds up on the spool valves on the oil side of the injector. The Rev x removes that crap and lubricates it so i can function properly and prevents future build up of deposits.

The best bet to getting rid of stiction is to use 5w40 full synthetic and 8oz of rev x. After running that for 5k, just change the oil and maybe throw in 4 oz of rex x every few oil changes.

sorry for tagging in

I hate to jump on some elses topic, but I started having the same problem. After I let is sit at night or while I'm at work (7hrs) it will smoke blue for a while. I first noticed a little blue smoke last week, and it has gotten a little worse each day. I do need to change the oil, which would support the depletion of the oil.

The other thing I noticed was an small antifreeze leak from the overfill. This is not as bad as the blow head gasket problem I had last year. I spend $$$$ to redo the egr delete, oil cooler, head gaskets, studs..... etc.

Could this be related?

All this started when I tried to drive correctly to save fuel milage
