7.3 shuts off when cold? Help?

I've been having a problem where my truck (if cold) will sometimes start up and have a noticeable knocking sound and once I get about 100 yards from the house it'll start white smoking, loping, and then shuts off. Then I go to crank it and it takes about 45 seconds of constant cranking to finally start back up and then it lopes and knocks, and it runs but you can tell it lopes and knocks even after it gets warmed up. It only does this when the temperature is below 65 degrees. Any suggestions? I have run it stock and with a ts 6pos and it's done it with both. It's done this about 6 times in the past 2 months.

I would look to ICP readings.
