7.3 PSD Dies while running when cold

New to the forum but need some help. I have a 2000 F250 with 270,000 miles, just recently after the cold weather came through. I developed a problem, if I don't let it warm up for 15 minutes in the morning I only get a block down the road and it starts running rough and loses power and blows white smoke out the muffler. Then it has shut off and I have a hard time getting it restarted. If I let it warm up it runs great. No hard starting when cold, have drained the fuel filter. The temperatures are back up to the 50's in the morning. Any ideas? Thanks.

I am alos in Florida and have experianced the exact same problems, I am wondering if my problem was related to oil pressure or fuel presure??

The other day it shut of with out running rough first then It would not restart for a good 10 minutes.

Sounds like it may be an ICP sensor issue, or very well an IPR valve.

The ICP yes, the IPR no. A bad IPR will show up on a scanner that can pull the duty cycle info from it. But if your pulling codes, the ICP sensor will throw a CEL

I have the exact same issue. I just recently bought the truck, and the guy showed me the receipt where he had the ICP sensor replaced a month ago. Other background info - have recently replaced the fuel filter (it went from one with a relief valve on the top) to one without that port. Any ideas if it's not the ICP sensor? Thanks guys.

And Tyler, if you still suggest the IPR valve, has this been known to solve these problems (I've seen the same issue listed a lot - just not a lot of solutions)? I don't really have ~$100 to throw at something (sensor or valve) if there's not a pretty good chance that it will resolve it. Thanks again.
