Diesel in coolant + Romps in morning, connected?

Hello all, new to the forum, seems like a great place to ask questions so here it goes...
I have a 2000 F350 7.3

I have the romps when it gets around freezing and haven't quite pinpointed where the problem is. As far as I can tell the glow plug system is working fine. My next step was to check oil delivery to the injectors, haven't gotten that far yet. But then I noticed Diesel fuel in my coolant reservoir. I did some brief searching on this site and read that it could be my injector sleeves. Could these two problems be related?

I need this truck to get to work any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Romps in the morning? Sounds like it has a BIG cam in it? My truck has done that 2 or 3 times since i've owned it, always wondered why...

diesel in your coolent is cracked injector cups and the romps in the morning when its cold is caused by running too thick af oil in the winter time. my 03 7.3 did the same thing i changed my oil to 5w30 full synthetic and i have never had a problem since i run it year around.

I got the kit from rosewood and replaced them all. found a few o-rings that were shot, could be my hard start problem.

Any way I got everything back together last night and I couldn't get it to start. I figured it would take a while since I drained all the fuel and oil from the injectors. Is there some way I can prime the system??
