Possibilities??

So I'm looking at an 04 6.0 (I know, not the greatest motor). From what the guys is telling me, the truck misses on a cold start, but at some point during warm-up, and while operating at optimal temp, the truck runs great. Any ideas what this could be? I was thinking maybe an injector, but was curious as to your input. Truck is bone stock with 131000 miles.

If u decide to buy i would do oil bypass 5w40 synthetic oil and add archoil if it is stiction that usually will clear it up as long as injector or more than one aren`t shot. good luck

its hit or miss with negotiations... some sellers wear their heart/price on their sleeve.

to me, 9k is high for bone stock that needs work out the gate.
