6.0 losing power.. Help needed

My father inlaw has a 2004 6.0l excursion. He said that when he is driving around town it will all of a sudden act like its going to dye. It will start sputtering and lose all power and also as he give it fuel to keep it running it blows out a ton of black smoke. It will drive but has hardy no power. After a few minutes it start to run normal again. It usual does it he start running for the first time of the day and it happens when in a mile from wherever he starts. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciate. Chris

Better check the FICM. Sounds like the culprit.

Tell him to take a look and see if he still has the throttle plate on the intake - we have them on our '04's. If it is still there then it will cause the exact symptoms. I just went through this and the the throttle plate kept sticking making my truck die. otherwise it would run great. My problems are gone.

I thought so too, but in my case the EGR was new. This is what was puzzling me at the time. However, his fil's EGR may be thirty though.

OP...what codes do you see.

The truck is bone stock. No mods at all. What is FICM?

Pull valve out and check to make sure valve is fully seated and not hung open.
