Runs like crap unless I plug it in?

K guys here's another one my pickup starts and runs fine if I plug it in if I don't it runs rough and sounds like we are only running on half the cylinders it's getting 70 degrees during the day and I still have to plug it in at work! Changed glow plugs. Code reader reads no codes ?? I'm lost. Help!!!!!!

Re: Runs like crap unless I plug it in?

Its in the general 6.0 section. Tittled Fixing Stiction. If you haven't turned a lot of wrenches on a 6.0 then you could try some rev-x or archoil 9100. Usally tuose clear it up. Cleaning the spool valves is a longer term fix.
