Smile motor missing when cold 6.0

When i start my 03 6.0 when it is cold it misses until it warms up. It has no power until it warms up. The other day I was going down the road and it just started slowing down and it finally stopped running. I took it to a mechanic an he said the high pressure oil pump was bad so he replaced it. It would start up but did not have the power it should. Can anybody help me. Thanks

He probably just threw it out there just to get money. 6.0s have this problem a lot I've noticed. Do some searching and digging. You should find it.

FICM failing or some injectors are varnished up internally, would be my guess. What weight oil is in your truck, and what is the ambient temperature there? What do you consider 'cold'?

It's really a good thing to replace oil pump but I think you should focus more on the battery and alternator. It will be a good idea to run parasitic test.

You are supposed to be able to take off cold without it running like crap. It's not recommended, but it's supposed to be able to do it. I agree with BigAngryHillbilly that it sounds like a ficm issue.
