I am not an expert on Powerstrokes, but I have found that problem on a few of the John Deere and Cummins engines I have worked on. Im my experience so far, I have found that either someone has put a bit of Diesel in the coolant, or they have blown a head gasket. Again do not quote me on this, someone with more knowledge on Powerstrokes will chime in. Although normally its oil in the coolant, sometimes the gasket will blow on the inside. This will cause it to combust only some of the diesel and blow the rest into the coolant lines that run through the block, therefore resulting in poor operation (running rough, starving itself of fuel) and then some. Worst case is that there is a slight crack in the block. Wish I could be more of a help, but thats all I know for now.
I just bought an 01 F250 PSD, name is Phil as well haha
