Glow plug pin-out

Does anyone have a glow plug pin-out?

Here is my issue. When you first start the truck and the engine is cool it buck's and kicks like you wouldn't believe. Once the engine warms, it is fine. No codes, I've done and injector cut out and no issue found (when warm). I'm at my wits end. Could it possibly be loosing prime over night or after it sits awhile as well? I am going to test my FICM and glow plug harness but I am wondering if anyone has a pin-out of the harness so I don't go poking injector solenoids.

Truck has 90k ARPS, and had a new EGR cooler and Oil Cooler done at 50K. Filters all changed 2k ago.

Thanks for the help.

FICM by itself could cause this problem. If the FICM tests good, when is the last time you had the truck reflashed? Ford has some enhancements to cold start issues. Also maybe try an oil additive like RevX, might have some stiction issues. But when my FICM was going bad, cold starts were a beast, then it had to be plugged in for like 4 hours. Readings were good, ended up having a bad logic side. Had to put a known good one to pinpoint the problem

How did yours run warm? Did it happen to kick every once in awhile at low rpm cruise speed under load? Mine doesn't have a hard time starting, at least yet!

when it was warm, at like highway speeds it would feel like I lost an injector or 2 without the smoke..loss of power, bucking. If I got on the skinny pedal again it would smooth out. Basically in OD it was gutless, thats when I started to realize I had a serious issue going on. At first I thought the hard starts just might be glow plug related

I had same exact symptoms, needed new ficm ( make sure you test it cold), and T6 5w-40 with archoil, now just T6 in the oil and its fine.
