Exclamation 03 Misfiring and Stalls when driving

Well I'm in Northwest Indiana where we are having -45 wind chill and yesterday I had to run to our TSC to get some straps. My Truck was plugged in, and I let her warm up for 35 minutes before I drove. Oil and Coolant temps were right around 140 when started driving. I have added a bottle of Diesel kleen to keep from gelling also. Went out and drove and I noticed a little loss of power and then it seemed ok where I was back to normal. 2 Miles later I couldn't go above 25 and I could tell that it was misfiring and sounded strange. Is it just because of the extreme cold that it is doing this or is it something else? I haven't drove it today because it is still about -25 and figured ill mess with it in the coming days when it is warmer out.

well it does sound like a fuel pressure issue. i would assume it would be because of the cold, but then again i live in florida and the coldest it gets here is 65.

What modifications do you have done to the truck? IE any type of aftermarket lift pump and what not? Any codes?

I agree it sounds like fuel related.

How much diesel kleen did you put into the tank with how much fuel?

What color was the diesel kleen bottle?

I have 4 inch lift with 37s, K&N intake, magna flow exhuast, SCT livewire with custom tunes, zoodad mod, blue spring mod, and ficm, injectors were replaced 30k ago. I have 214k on the truck and haven't had any problems recently. It was the white bottle for 40 gallons so I put it all in except for a couple ounces.

I'd hook a scanner up to it and look at your ICP and IPR...maybe even your FICM voltage. Just to be safe. I believe you can check some of those with a Livewire but don't quote me on that.
