lots of smoke and no power...?

Hello everyone,

I have a problem with my truck and I need your expertise in solving the problem. Here is the story. I drove my truck about 30 miles from work to a hardware store. Most of the driving was highway the last 8 or so miles was city driving. Turn the truck off go inside and pick up what I need 5-10 minutes. Start the truck, no power, but idles, in gear step on gas pedal, will hardly move and struggles and smokes like a train(white smoke). Stop put it in nuetral, then in gear again, step on gas pedal and same thing, no power, smokes, and barely moves, but it moves maybe 4 parking spaces, starts getting better and then all of a sudden the smoke goes away the power goes up and the truck drove fine. That happened about a week ago and the truck has been fine since. The outside temperature was about 25 degrees that day. Please help me solve the problem. Thank you for the help.

It does not show any codes. I hooked it up to my buddys bullydog just to check codes and there were none. It still runs great, so I dont know.

Bullydog and SCT aren't good for truly diagnosing a problem. You need a Scan Gauge or something similar. I bet if you took it to the dealership and asked them to pull codes they'd find some.

Scan Gauge, Autoengininuity or Ford scanner, take your pick. They'll let you know if it's an injector and if so, which one it is.

When my '06 F350 had the exact same symptoms, the dealer ended up replacing the FICM (still under warranty) and that fixed the problem.
Looking back on it now... I think the whole issue started when I returned from a 2 week business trip where my truck had been parted at the airport, I returned to find the batteries were dead and I had to get a jump start late at night in zero degree temps. I also replaced the batteries after getting the new FICM.

I had the same problem. Check the voltage on your FICM! I will be willing to bet, its starting to go out on ya! You can find out how to check it yourself online pretty easy!!! Follow close! DO NOT SHORT OUT WHEN CHECKING! I would get ahold of SWAMPS diesel performance if ya need a new one! They did awesome for me!!
