Momentary Bugaboo That Goes Away Quickly After Starting Out

My 2007 F-350 6.0 w/ 210,000 miles, runs kind of rough and is way down on power when starting out from cold. Evidence of being down on power, is that transmission goes to much higher RPMs than normal before shifting.

But this "problem" virtually goes away after 2 or 3 minutes going down the road.

Also, if I just start the engine and let it idle, it idles very sweetly (i.e. not roughly at all). I have no doubt also, that if I simply let engine idle for 5 or 10 minutes before starting out there would be no problem at all.

Any ideas?

This is where one of those monitoring devices comes into play....
Without some basic info from monitoring engine/system function you are in the dark

First thing I'd check is FICM voltage, but with no more info to go on, it's just a guess.

I think his problem is that you ask for advice, when you get advice you decide that it's not the correct advice, even though it comes from members who know what they're talking about. That might have a little something to do with it, maybe, just a little.

Some advice to the OP. these guys know their stuff. Without a moniter and some basic numbers, it's a crapshoot. Your problem could be anything at this point.

Your post is very low on details. Get some more info and you'll most likely get it figured out.

Yes and no. You did say "That is normal because of your EBPV", however you did not explain what "EBPV" is, so therefore your answer is useless.

I'll take a guess here: Exhaust ByPass Valve??? And if so, is said item malfunctioning?

If only this website has a search button. Maybe somebody should message the powers that be and tell them to add a search function. You know, for searching for common answers to common problems that are commonly answered.
