Ford has a TSB for this issue:
* WHITE SMOKE, LACKS POWER, EXHAUST ODOR, SURGES, RUNS ROUGH, OR NO START - 6.0L
Publication Date: January 23, 2006
2003-2006 F-Super Duty
Some vehicles equipped with a 6.0L DI engine may experience white smoke, lacks power, exhaust odor, surges, runs rough, or no start. These conditions are caused by the injector spool valve sticking internally when cold. The concern is typically evident following a cold start and may last 3-5 minutes or longer as the vehicle warms up.
Diagnose these driveability concerns using the following Service Procedure.
NOTE: IF THE VEHICLE RUNS ROUGH OR HAS A MISFIRE WHEN THE ENGINE IS AT OPERATING TEMPERATURE, DIAGNOSE THOSE CONCERNS BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THIS TSB.
NOTE: OIL ADDITIVES THAT INCREASE THE OIL'S VISCOSITY AND POOR MAINTENANCE CAN DELAY COMMANDED INJECTOR SPOOL VALVE RESPONSE. FAILURE TO CHANGE THE OIL ON A REGULAR BASIS AT THE PROPER INTERVAL WILL CAUSE THE INJECTOR SPOOL VALVE TO STICK WHEN COLD.
Refer to the owner's guide for recommended service intervals and oil grade/viscosity. Several oil changes with driving cycles may be required to "flush" the engine of residual additives and/or degraded oil.
NOTE: VEHICLE PERFORMANCE ISSUES RELATED TO FUEL QUALITY, MAINTENANCE AND AFTERMARKET MODIFICATIONS/ADDITIVES ARE NOT COVERED BY FORD MOTOR COMPANY WARRANTY.
