Funky morning starts

Ive only owned the SD a year, and I cant remember last winter if this was happening. I live down south Florida, so it dont get to cold here, but on some mornings, when its like 70 and below, the SD runs really bad in the mornings at start up. Knocking engine, maybe like grayish white smoke for a few puffs, driveability really poor with no power and hesitation, then after like 10 minutes, she runs normal. Is that something I need to get looked at or is it jut the cooler mornings that are giving her a rough time? Thanks..

Wow that's usually a problem at 40 degrees or lower not 70. The inductive heating update should help that problem, but if it does it a 70 you may some injector issues. One of the techs here should be able to diagnose this further for you.

Yeah mine will do that when starting in the 30's and lower like it has been lately. I usually plug in at work and home so it isnt always a problem but today i could not plug in at work so it sounds like its full of 3/4 stone instead of oil.
I hardly get any smoke out of it, just a short burst of it and thats it.
edit: I live in Rhode Island

There is a newer programming strategy available from Ford to address the cold start issue. I had similar symptoms last year with my truck and the inductive heating strategy fixed the problem.

The new program uses the coils in the injector to heat them up and eliminate stiction. Sort of like a glow plug for your injectors.

there is nothing wrong with your truck other than it needs the latest calibration from ford for cold start rough idle and excessive smoke , like matt said , its an inductive heat to the injectors to keep them from sticking in the mornins cold , take it in and have it reprogrammed , that will fix it
