Problems NEED HELP ASAP

I have a 2000 F250 that I just bought. I had my block heater plugged in and truck started fine. Let it run for a few minutes before I started to drive it. Had to put it in 4wd to get through dirfts in my drive. I drive about 50 miles to work temp gauge showed same temp as always but I didn't have any power. It ran like it was cold all of the way to work had to beg it to do 50. It was much colder when I bought the truck and once it was warm It accelerated normally. Do these have a limp mode? Had to accelerate pretty hard to get through drifts and it was not quite up to temp. If it does have a limp mode how do you clear it. It never had a cel either. I have to drive it home tonight don't want to do any damage. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Joe, I'm not too familiar with the 7.3 but have to wonder about the possibility of water in the fuel system. Maybe frozen and causing partial restriction of fuel flow. You may find when your ready to leave for home later that everything is seemingly back to normal.

Sounds like ebpv is partially shut. Idling, is it making a hissing sound in the exhaust?

I noticed that when it was cold but I didn't check late but it seems like it did sound a little different. How do you fix that?

gomer pyle thanks! there is a switch on the dashboard that a previous owner had apparently installed. I hadn't messed with it but I must have bumped it at some time or other. There was a hissing sound and it seemed to be over fueling (huge clouds of black smoke) until I flipped that switch to off. I belive that I will eliminate that switch. Also it has a K&N air intake if that makes any difference

Do away with the k&n filter whenever you get a chance, those are known to do damage to diesels. 6637 filter is popular and inexpensive

I got mine at Napa. 6637 is the part #. Riffraff sells them too.
