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 neutral, 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.
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.
