6.0 Trouble

Well, I've had my '03 for about 4 months now without a single problem. But the other night, it got down to about 40 degrees for the first time and I noticed the powerstroke didn't like it much. She was a little pissed when I tried startin' her and ran real rough for about 10 minutes before she got up to temp.

The next night it got down to 40 again and she did the same thing and I had to run to Wal Mart. Once warm, she was perfect but when I came out to head home.. no start. At all.

In the shop now. I know this happens a lot because I've read the posts. I'm just worried about it, I love that truck. Ha. And I'm a little strapped for money so I'm worried about that as well.

I was thinking a sticking injector or two? But would that cause a no start? Maybe glow plugs or relay? Would that cause a rough idle until warm? I didn't think 40 degrees would affect anything and didn't plug it in..

I know I'll find out tomorrow, just a little worried.

Could be a few different things, do you have the latest calibration from Ford?

I don't at the moment, but have read posts about a few people saying that fixed the problem I described. Is that true?

Talked to the mechanic today. Turns out that the glow plug module went out causing an entire row of plugs to go out.

Im just glad it wasnt injectors.

I would be as well. 6 OH injectors are high dollar, like 2800 bucks worth high. I am glad you found the problem and it was a easy fix.
