Once warmed up it ran fine. I looked around saw that it may be stiction so I ordered Rev-x and put T-5 Rottela oil in it. Started fine but it had only set a couple hours. It sat for 2 weeks cause I work on the road and got home tonight it went to start it turned key over it acted like it wanted to start it would fire for a second then die. Tried 3 times it would not start usually it would run for a few seconds bucking then die but not this time. I said screw it went in side then came back out an hour later tried again and it fired up but once again hardly any power till it was warmed up. I have a feeling the dealership started the truck let it get warm before I got there cause I told him I would be there around 9am. When i started it and drove it at dealership i noticed it warmed up really fast for a diesel but didnt think nothing of it until now. I have had the truck for almost 30 days. Monday will be 30 days and I have no warrenty with the truck. I would understand if it happened sometime after I bought it but the fact that it did it the first time I turned it off and let it sit tells me they warmed it up so it wouldnt do that when I got there and they screwed me over.
On the paper work somewhere in that real small print it said (sold as is) it may be something you just have to fix, if so i would start with the EGR valve that is what it sounds like to me a good place the start. Have you changed the fuel filters, Ford filters only oil also check your airfilter if you need one the stock filter is good to 500HP
