rough idle (cold start)

Hey guys,

I'm newer to this, so don't chew me up too bad.
2001 7.3L f-350 132,000mi. no mods
when I start the truck when chilly (below 60) the truck runs real rough like a lope idle.... I have to shut it down then restart then it runs better. it seams like a cylinder in not firing (maybe more).... could this be glow plugs?? mind you I want to get this fixed before colder weather but can't replicate until it's colder...do you see my problem??? issues/clutchcable

How many miles on oil change? Injectors use high pressure oil to actuate. Powerstrokes love fresh oil.

what oil wieght are you running, if it is a non-synthetic then you should be running 15w40. when it is a synthetic i think you can get away with 5w40
