Rough idle for a few minutes

Sorry guys I'm sure you have answered this question a million times but I can't find a previous one so I must ask I bought a 2005 6.0 a couple weeks ago. Drove it 700 miles and it died on the rode ended up being the HPOP and an injector! I get the pickup back and it was idling really rough if it was cold outside even plugging it in at nights. I changed the glow plugs ( except 2&4 because i cant get to them) because code reader said 6&8 were bad . Now if I plug it in it starts ok it shakes for a little bit but at least the idle sounds smooth . But once I get to work if I don't start the pickup a couple times during the day later that night when I go to head home it starts fine but runs really rough and if I put it into gear it is running so rough it won't even move!!! Code reader says there are no codes so I'm lost any help would be great! Thanks guys. I believe the forums are better than my local dealer most days so I appreciate all your help!,

Also once pickup is warmed up slightly it runs awesome!!! Temp here now is anywhere between 20-50 degrees. I've always been a dodge man and bought this ford and now I'm worried I made a mistake please help me out and prove me wrong!!

I never seen it get below 48 when we tested it the other day. Not started and while cranking it didn't seem to change.

Could be sticky turbo vanes or a sticky EGR valve. EGR valve is the easiest to check. You can also see if your EGR cooler is leaking at the same time.

Park your vehicle nose down overnight. First thing in the AM, pull the EGR valve and look for signs of wetness in the intake manifold - if so you have EGR cooler issues. Normally it should be very fine soot and perhaps a little oil from the crankcase vent. Even if it is dry it may feel oily. Take a little bit and set it out in the sun to see if it dries out or not. Other wise clean up the EGR valve, just be careful not to get anything inside the valve body itself. May want to pick up some new O-rings and gasket for the valve cause you may trash them when you remove the valve. Also, try to vacuum as much crud out of the intake manifold.

Valve can be hard to remove. I remove the bolts and connector, rotate the valve slightly, and if I cannot simply pull it out, I take some rebar tie wire and loop it thru the bolt holes of the valve, and then around a 5 foot 2x4. The end the 2x4 rests on the cowl/firewall, and you can push up to pop out the valve. Just make your wire and board arrangement such that you are pulling straight up on the valve.

change to synthetic oil and put some archoil9100 or rev-x in it for 5000 miles. when you do fuel filters make sure you change both. try running some fuel additive and make sure batteries are good and strong. load test them individually.

Found a TSB about after a hpo system service there could be air trapped in it. You just have to drive it about 100 mi or do 12 aggressive accelerations from 25-50 mph.

Thanks for all the things to try guys! I believe to my knowledge the egr is removed! At least it's capped off at the exhaust behind the turbo . I have synthetic oil in it and I just bought some Rex x to try. Is one bottle enough seems pretty small compared to 15qts of oil. Thanks again I bought fuel filters yesterday but haven't changed them yet. Hopefully I'll get time tomorrow.

I have a EGR valve "tool" just like yours which I took a router and wrote "SnapOn" on it. LOL
