oil change gone wrong?

hey guys,
I cant figure it out so im wondering if you guys have any imput i have an 03 6.0 with 123k stock besides 4 inch turbo back. I changed my oil for the first time on saterday (bought the truck 4 months ago). any way after changing the oil now my truck will not rev above 1000rpms while cold. it has to warm up untill i can move it at all but once its warm it runs fine... im stumped i added just over 15 quarts of 15w40 and a motocraft filter. does anyone have any idea where i should start to diagnois this.

Thanks in advance
-Ryan

What is your temp range where you live? And what do you mean will not rev over 1k rpm? As in full throttle will not go past 1k or the computer is limiting it? The oil seems thick to me. What brand of oil? Synthetic/non?

That oil seems thick for up north right now. Are you sure your oil filter cap is oem?

Gonna jump on the thick oil band wagon. I just got rid of the 15-40 and went with the t5 10w30. Synthetic blend. The trucks cold start habits are totally improved.

hey guys
thanks for all the responses and yeah thats what my buddy told me to run soo i did (15w40). but as for the rev problem it wont rev with a load on it while cold. example. in park truck will rev normal but in Reverse or Drive you can put the pedel to the floor and it wont go up past like 1k.. im thinking maybe sence the oil is thick and its currently 19 degrees here and the injectors are oil driven that its just not flowing right untill warm?

Sounds like you may have a bad case of stiction and the heavy oil is not helping. Do your truck a favor and try t6, and rev-x or archoil 9100. Do you have a monitor?
