No Power on cold motor

Just bought truck(2003 crewcab) and drove it while it had a warm motor, subsequently next morning, im in texas, its already 75+ outside and after start it kinda lopes weird and has no power, pulled out into road and it wouldn't go over 20mph or 3k rpm. after it gets drove for a bit it runs fine and has plenty of power. turbo sounds a bit loud.

sorry its my first post and i havent searched, just wanted to get the question asked and registered on here. going to search on phone

taking to diesel shop saturday to see what damage is there. hopefully it isnt the 2k egr my buddy was saying it could be.

its my first diesel and i plan on taking out a loan to change oil this weekend
(best oil)?

Threw some Lucas injector cleaner in there. Going to change fuel and air filter as well, previous owner cut the intake so it's a bigger hole sucking in from engine bay. Maybe it got wet.

Make sure you run ford filters and get some Rotella t6 15w40 and then try and find some Revx at a diesel shop or google it and find some online (that's what I have to do). And it's normal for your turbo to be that loud being an 03, let me know of you want to sell it for a newer style

Ha I originally got it to trade for a 00 built lightning. But I'm gonna sit on this and save. Going to try and build a truck. Like 50s f100 an a lightning motor.

Buddy at work also works as a train hausler and told me they use the shell in the train motors so definitely what I'll put in.

It will also be nice changing the oil in my drive way instead of the hobby shop. First vehicle I've had that I can crawl under and work on.

Ya they are simple to work on, drain plug underneath and oil filter on top. If you have a 36mm socket it make getting the filter cap off alot easier
