6.0 transmission

I just recently purchased a 06 6.0 F350. When I test drove it, it was already warmed up. (they picked me up in the truck). After I get it home it sat for a day. When I started it this morning, it started fine. When I drove it, it did not shift well at all. It also felt as if it had no power but idled just fine. I pulled over and let it idle for a few min. As I drove for about another mile it started shifting and driving fine. Is it normal to have to let it warm up for it to drive fine? The weather today when this all took place was dry about 80 degrees.

NO, this is not normal. You be able to start it up and run down the road. The very first thing you need is an engine monitoring solution like a Scangauge II. You can get one from Bullet Proof Diesel for less than $200 and it will tell you a lot about your engine and control systems. Check out the links in my sig for some more info. The factory gauges in this truck won't tell you anything is wrong until it's way to expensive to fix. Sounds like injector stiction or a FICM problem. You really need more data to t-shoot this problem.

I bought a edge CTS for the monitors. It has not arrived yet. Will this tell me what I need to know?

If the is the Insight CTS it should tell you a lot. The big things to know is FICM voltage, IPR and ICP values. I am not sure the Edge device will pull all the DTC's the PCM will generate.

I'm still learning here. When I get the insight what should the numbers be?
Ficm voltage
IPR
ICP
DTC
PCM
Also what do they stand for.

While I'm thinking about it, what should the EOT,ECT numbers be?

Thanks a lot.
JJ
