Unhappy e450 6.o

2006 E450/6.0 when cold I have no power and trans. will not shift, after it warms up about 15 mins. it seems to run a little better and trans. will shift but still feel a surge. Any ideas for help with this problem. It's in a church bus and we really need it.

If it is real cold it will take a while to warm up enough to shift. Do you have a block heater in it? If not this will keep the system warm and solve the problem of waiting for it to warm up. Also you can put a piece of cardboard in front of the radiator until the guage shows it has warmed up. Hope this helps.

How many miles are on this vehicle? My 2004 F350 is slow to warm up also but it will shift better as it warms up. It takes about 2 miles after I take off. It may need a filter change, this will make fluid move slow until it warms up.

You may be having trouble with the turbo, they are variable vane and have an electrical connector in the front of the turbo. This may be your problem also. It is hard to tell online. You may need to take it in for tech to hook up at tester to it. Wish i could give you a better answer.
