96 f250 dies?

Hello, I have got a 96 f250 7.3l with 102,000 miles. i am having problems after starting, the truck will skip or die. recently it has started dieing more. This only happens within the first min. of starting. If the truck is warm or has been driving around it will not normally do it. This morning it was around 20 degrees, i use fuel treatment, and plug the truck in. it skipped about a 1/2 dozen times and would have died if i was not on the gas, it will die if not pressing the gas or driving. any ideas? Thanks for all your help.

Maybe glow plugs?or fuel heater!

might just be the fuel heater in the bottom of the bowl, also there is a chance your glow plug relay could be bad, since there suppose to run even after the light is off. to help keep it going smoothly!!! just maybe!!!

if the fuel heater was the cause ,it wouldnt run at all, need to check oil level and make sure its in good condition ,sounds more like a cam sensor to me
