Rough start clears then misses for a while
Bit of history and im sorry for the story. bought the truck at a dealer auction 2004 F250 lariat 2wd for a steal, drive it home an ran amazing for the hour trip, found a sticker saying bdp.com an started poking an its got the bpd egr cooler an oil filter relocation/cooler w/thermostat, super excited an it has 163xxx I have poured through the forums exhaustively speculating as to what could be wrong. I don't have money to throw at my truck right at the moment or get a data logger either. Next morning i discovered i have some kinda issue. It starts up fine with a slight miss pulled codes an 7 and 8 cylinders have bad glow plugs, once it runs for maybe a minute or two it clears up. Idles perfect, get going down the road after letting it warm up a good deal and it misses noticably for about 4-5 miles or so then quits. Don't matter if I'm babying it getting up to speed or gradually getting up to 60. Even after it quits missing if I get into the gas a bit to get up a hill I feel it miss. Pulled a code for #4 cylinder high voltage cleared an haven't seen it again, tired another time an seen #6 cylinder contribution. Changed fuel filters, ran cleaner thru the system an still does it. Changed oil rotella 15/40 an rev-x still does it.
Ideas? Thoughts? Suggestions? I don't have much at all to throw at it an I am the lead tech at my shop. Gas burners as my specialty but I wanted a diesel hardcore for towing an the lariat to look good doin it too.
