06 6.0L issue before warmed up? no power

ok so i assumed when it was colder mornings, 40deg F, that the truck made no power because fuel/engine was cold.. but yesterday it was 60 all day almost, started it up cold at 4pm and it barely moved pulling the trailer 200 ft.

It runs worse at 60deg F making any power 30 seconds after you start it than our other 6.0Ls do when its 10deg F outside.

Its so bad that unless you let it warm up idling for about 5minutes prior, it barely will hit 2000rpms and shift out of 1st gear... same thing in any gear if you can get it into high enough rpms to upshift.

the dummy plugs and high pressure rail o rings or something were changed back in august and i had'nt driven it myself then so i dont know if it was related or not. What could cause this? You feel a misfire/hesitation bad just rolling down the road, it does it at idle too.

Say you start it at 40deg F, in neutral or park you rev it up to 2000rpms, it shakes and sputters like it cant spin any faster.

Check your FICM voltage. There are three readings you have to get. One is with the engine cold, key on. Next, engine cold and while cranking the engine over. The last is as the truck starts. If any of the readings are below 46 volts, the FICM needs to be repaired.
Before you test the FICM, you should have the batteries load tested. Most auto parts stores will do this test for free. Replace the batteries as a set if either battery tests marginal or fails. Then, charge the batteries to a 100% charge (even if you bought new). The test and charge will ensure that get the best possible result from your voltage tests. It will also make sure that weak batteries will not damage the FICM (new or old).
Directions for checking the FICM: CLICK HERE

Another thing that could be happening is that the egr valve may be sticking. Remove the valve and clean it. Directions for this: CLICK HERE
When you remove the valve, have the truck parked on decent decline. Leave the valve out overnoght and check the bottom of the hole for the presence of moisture. The soot in the hole should be a dry, packed powder. If it is greasy or you find any indication of wetness, the egr cooler has failed (which means the oil cooler needs to be replaced as well).

You answered your own concern...

These trucks DO NOT like to sit.
(EGR and Turbo problems will occur, you need to run the truck at least once a week and give the turbo a nice workout to work the veins.)

"You feel a misfire/hesitation bad just rolling down the road, it does it at idle too."

Mine started to do this after i ran injector cleaner, took it in an got a #4 injector diagnosed as bad. Not sure if the injector cleaner had anything to do with it. 04' with 168k.
