6.0 Rough Cold Start And Idle In Drive
Ok, I am very sorry but I have been searching and reading all posts I could find on rough idle and cold starts and all that stuff, but my problem seems to be a little different than EGR (Which I have unplugged, no fix & cleaned, no fix) and tested glo plug wires (tested amps on the bundle of wire, found no major difference of amperage).
So, My Problem Is: The 2004 6.0 starts from a "cold start" (coldest is 65 F overnight, I have owned this for 2 weeks) and the engine starts fine, idles fine, put into gear it feels like it misses, take it out of gear it sometimes straightens up, but if you put it back into gear it just "puts" along and shakes the whole truck, if you give it slight pedal it shakes more, and severely lacks power. After a short highway drive it runs fine, for the rest of the day, off and restarted.
It has 119K Miles on it, just changed both filters, ran lucas fuel treatment, changed air filter element, and read codes with a generic code reader, and it was clean.
