Very weird and unpredictable problem HELP Please

Hey guys ive read through a lot of the forum and i cant seem to duplicate my problem anywhere.Anyways about 2 weeks ago i got in my 2000 f350 psd and started it up fine on first try with outside temp around 30deg.I went out he road about half a mile and the truck felt like it was running out of fuel no throttle and whit smoke coming out the back.I let off the throttle and coasted for a bit and got back in the throttle and it went on its merry way with no problems.It done this same thing the next day at the exact same spot on the road and then was fine again.Well this week i drove it everyday and it was very warm here this week (mid 70s) and it never done it once.Then today 35 deg and at the exact same spot down the road here it goes again,then corrects and runs fine.What gives?

thanks in advance
Jason

PS on a side note im looking for some one who can make me an intake pipe for a cool air system,ive got the filter and clamps but i need a pipe.

I just posted something very similar to yours (2000 PSD; hard to start, white smoke; more) before I read this. Sounds like the same problem, but yours is in the beginning stages. Maybe we'll both get answers soon.

This is simply your EBBV closing, it only happens when it is cold and should stop after the vehicle warms up. There is nothing wrong at all. If you are having problems starting you need to troubleshoot your GP system. I have a sticky in the maintenance section that tells you how.

Im having a weird problem with mine where ever since its been cold outside it makes this loud slushing noise coming from the engine compartment and the truck bogs down. it will only last a few seconds but does it every couple seconds or sometimes minutes until up to operating temp.. any ideas?

As NCHornet said, sound like EBPV (exhaust back pressure valve) easy to test by unplugging the connector under the turbo, this will disable it electrically and allow you to see if it makes any difference.

Definitely the EBPV. The wooshing sound and loss of power are the tell tale signs.
