Rare rought idle and drive

Hello everyone,

I've been checking on this site for quite some time and it has been of great help. THANKS!

I have a 2000 F-350 CC with 77k miles that I bought last year. Salvage truck.
Anyways fastforward the cabin has been fixed now and the truck is up and running.

But it has a rough idle, it does NOT feel as if it is missing a cylinder completely, just shakes a lot, really annoying.
Also driving you can clearly feel it vibrating sort of.
The thing is when you let it idle for minutes all of a sudden it goes
SMOOTH, idles just perfect and then goes back to rough idle.
I you leave the truck idling for an hour, it will keep going smooth/rough on and off.

Things I've done so far :

Buzz test : was good.
Checked the UVCH, they were full in, so also good I guess.
Oil is brand new
Read the codes, no codes
During live data stream I could see though that the water temp was reading -40, I know that's not good, haven't had a chance to get one yet but don't know if it can influence the idle/drive like that.

No white or black smoke whatsoever.
Other than this, the truck feels OK powerwise.

Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated

Wow, that could be numerous things. Could be a CPS. It is a cheap try. If you decide to try this only buy this sensor from Ford or International.

Problem solved, it turned out to be a damaged cooling fan.

Thanks for checking

That's just funny. Of all the things it could have been, that actually fits the problem so perfectly it's ridiculous. How'd you break it? Sounds like it was missing a fin. Glad you got it sorted out, and thanks for posting up the fix.

Ridiculous right, man I feel so dumb not noticing it before.
Just finished testing the bowl pressure and was just starring and listening to the engine idle....when suddenly it got my attention.

Well its ok now


thanks
