stutter or miss???

2007 powerstroke, power train is all stock (for now) and I have developed a little stutter or small miss at take off. It seems to disappear as soon as truck is fully warm. It starts with zero issues, but when you go to pull away it seems to have just a slight stutter.
I generally let the truck warm up in the driveway for a few minutes before moving, but it 80F here in the morning and really shouldn't need that much.

What do you think it could be? dirty injector, fuel filter, water?... thoughts?

could be some injector stiction or could be the ficm taking a dump. i would test the voltage on the ficm first as that can cause injector failiure.

I was leaning towards stiction also. If it goes away when it warms up. When was the last oil change?

It definitely goes away once warm. I was hoping that maybe I picked up some crappy fuel somewhere but this is second tank and still doing it. I guess ill change fuel filters and see what happens.

REV-X seems to be highly recommended for injector stiction like you are describing. Might be worth a try.

Use the search in this forum. There is a TON of info on here about both. Also I've read that you can put certain 2-cycle oil in the fuel and that helps to lube and clean the injectors. Gotta put in some time reading. There is enough info here to read for days.
