Truck keeps stalling/missing

For the past couple of days when I drive my truck when its cold it sounds like it has a miss and bogs down and then eventually stalls and then the truck dies when you try to accelerate afterwards. One thing I have noticed is that the fuel bowl is ice cold when it misses like this and then when I pull over and keep it revved to about 1800-2000 for a few minutes it clears up and runs just fine when the fuel bowl is warm to the touch. Any ideas on what this might be?

That's what I was thinking but I am not sure if cold fuel would cause it to do what it does?

I have no way of testing the codes unfortunately.

Anywhere from low 30's to low 40's.

So fuel isn't gelling up so bowl heater isn't an issue.
Probably need to watch your fuel pressures.

definitely not gelling then. Have you changed your fuel filter and checked your pressure?

Brand new fuel filter, have not been able to check fuel pressure. Talked to a diesel shop today and the guy said it might be injector seals. I'm going to take it in there soon and have them run a diagnostic on it and find out what's up.
