she is a cold lil' *****

06' 6.0 TD

she isnt hard to crank, runs like a scalded dog when she is good and warm! but, she runs like crap for the first fifteen minutes if i crank and go....even when its almost 90 degrees outside.
is this normal, or can it be fixed?

Might get it scanned. I had a FICM going out and it got to where it would barley start. Also it could have some injectors that take a bit to come online. JJ

I agree with the above. Get it scanned. If it was the FICM it would be hard to start, if it would even start, towards the end of it's life. My guess would be injectors, but like I said, I would start by getting it scanned and go from there.

sounds like your injectors are sticking cold, and as the engine temp comes up they free up and perform. check for codes and if possible monitor or record live data when it's acting up and you should be able to find your cause.
