2006 6.0L Engine miss

I have two ford diesels, different years, different engines, but same exact problem. My 2006 6.0 and my 2000 7.3 both miss very badly when "cold" and by cold I mean ambient temp can be 30-90 deg F. On both of them, as soon as the engine oil temp (the only temp I can watch to within a deg or two) gets to 160 it is like a switch is thrown, and they both run perfectly. When they are missing it is as bad as if they had run out of fuel and had just started picking it back up, engine/truck shakes, not enough power to hardly move. Then when the magic temperature arrives they run fine. Is there a bypass/solenoid/something that switches over when a certain temperature is made?

Thanks,

RM

Its called stiction. Caused by dirty oil. All 6.0's have the problem eventually. Call archoil get the 9100 and youll be amazed at the difference.

2006 6.0 miss

Ah, don't see it being a "stiction" problem, two different engines same problem, bad miss until hitting an exact (160 deg f) oil temp and then both engines smooth out perfectly. There has to be some type of automatic change that is programmed into system, ie. bypass solenoid closes, etc. Just hoped someone had knowledge of Ford diesel settings for cold engine start/warm engine run.

Thanks anyway.

I had the EXACT problem in my 6.0. So did 3 others of us with the motor. When I warmed up, it ran like a dream. I promise you on the 6.0 at least that is your problem. The injectors use the oil to inject the fuel. Dirty oil will cause a miss until it thins out when it gets up to temp. Mine would miss and not run right until it got warm. Then it straightened out. Someone on here told me to try the Archoil, I did and 150 miles later she was cured. The 7.3 I couldnt tell you, maybe an injector. Try it, if it works great if not your only out 30.00 and still not really as the Archoil WILL clean your engine. OH, that 30.00 will treat both motors.
