Problem after Coolant Flush

So I made the switch from the gold to Cat ELC EC-1 red two weeks ago. I did do the Restore and Restore+ flush. My deltas are fine, but I have noticed that the coolant temp reaches 190* much faster than it use too. My concern is that the past few days when I start it up after it sat all night, the first 10-15 seconds the truck is running, it shakes ALOT, and shoots out a white plume of smoke for about 5-10 seconds. What the hell is causing this?

Well, just drove it around town for awhile. Checked my Edge and found out a threw P0275 code. Everything Ive read, sounds like a bad injector. Not sure if this could be from coolant flush or not, but I'm pretty sure this is gonna be the issue. Giving truck to my buddy at Ford tomorrow to have him check it out. Ill let u know what happens.

Not related to the flush. It sounds like the injector is draining fuel into the cylinder that's the rough run and smoke on startup. Be careful it doesn't hydrolock on you. That could ruin your day. And many more days after.

Correct, it can not be from the flush. Replace it soon though dont wait. If it does hydro lock your going to have to pull the glow plugs.

Finally got the verdict from Ford. The #5&7 injectors were bad. They are replacing them as we speak. Best part, I only have to pay $100 deductible on my warranty. Let you know how it is when I get it back.
