cold start issue

Hi i have a 2003 6.0 with 60,000 miles on it when i start the truck in the morning after it sits all night the truck runs ruff and it actually died one day. I will let the truck run for 3 to 4 minutes before driving it but even after letting it warm up some i have a major lack of power for the first 3 miles i mean i can try and acculerate and watch the rpms go up and not gain any power. The Turbo was replaced at 55,000 miles which was supposed to take care of the issue but it did not change anything. The truck is 100% stock. Someone please help me. Thanks

its more than likely injectors dropping out cold. You will need to dropp it off at the dealer one afternoon/evening so they can start it cold in the morning and see which injector(s) are acting up cold

I have the same problem, seems to happen anytime it dips below 10C (50F). Plugging in the block heater overnight prevents the issue, but that shouldn't be necessary until it's -10C or -23F.

And about 20k ago I paid for the dealership to do the "high pressure injector cleaning" thing. I wonder if I was hosed on that one.

When they replace the injectors, are they putting in something that is better than the original design? I guess the same question applies to the turbo, EGR, and other bits that commonly fail.
