I have a 2002 F-250 7.3L, my truck does this at times as well. When it does I change the oil and don't have a problem afterwards. For the cost of an oil change I would give it a try. If that don't fix it may be a sign that the cam postition sensor is going bad. Those are the only two things that I did when my truck was acting that way. You may also want to change the fuel filter. I change mine every other oil change.

Check your Oil. Sounds like it's either low or your HPOP resivour is low. I had this same problem last March/April and changing my oil and checking the levels every fuel fillup fixed the problem. Also, let the truck idle at least 30-45 seconds before taking off when cold. It takes about 30 seconds for the oil to get circulated to the valve covers.

It sounds like you are saying that the HPOP recirculates it's oil, which is not the case. The hpop res., gets it's oil from the LPOP, if the HPOP is low, it's either because of, a failed, or failing IPR, leaking HPO lines, a failing LPOP (Good thing is, the truck will NOT run period, if the lpop fails), or, a low oil level. If you have visible oil on your dipstick, (even if it's in the add area)low oil level is not the problem.
