somebody please enlighten me!!!!

Long story but bare with me...my girlfriend has been driving my truck for over a month now since hers has been in the shop. Today the truck just died on her. 01 7.3... turned over but would not start. Had it towed home and I tried to start it and it would fire but would not hold an idle. Checked oil, it was low. Added oil tried again and it fired and idled VERY rough. Gave it some gas and you could tell it was only running on 7 cylinders and plenty of white smoke. Then it starts idling just fine. Still running on 7 though. I let it sit for almost 2 hours. Fired right up and ran completely fine...any thoughts
