Hard start, rough idle, then fine after up to temp!
I have a 2006 f350 6.0.
It has a rebuilt ficm, dummy plugs
I had a edge evolution on it and took it of an sold it two days ago( sct is on its way). When I took it off and sold the chip, I went to start my truck and it started prefect then started to idle badly. Sounded like a bad lope tune. So i shut the truck off and tried restarting. I got the same result. So I pulled the truck forward and after about 1 min the truck ran fine after it got to temp.
So then I let the truck sit for 2 days not driving it and not plugged in.
I went to go start the truck and it would not start. Cranked and cranked and cranked. White smoke like crazy. So I plugged the truck in and went inside for 2 hours and came back out and tried to start it. Cranked right up but started the bad lope again then after it got to temp it ran fine
Engine light is on now and I haven't got the codes read yet
These symptoms happend right after I unplugged my edge. So I'm guessing it has to do somthing with this. Please help me!
Should I get my truck flashed? Should I wait till my sct gets here?
I've also heard tht it may be my batteries??
