rough starting cold

I have a 2006 F350 6.0. When its cold I turn the key wait for the light to go off then attempt to start my truck. She starts and idles like only 4 cylenders are hitting and wont have a lick of power. If I turn the key on wait for the light to go off then repeat a few times she starts fine. Whats the problem? Im thinking I need to heve the computer reflashed tor cold start up.

yep, reflash was the first thought i had. hell, it's under warrenty, let them monkey with it for awhile.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

I have the same problem but I hear the injectors vibrating when I glow all the time. My batteries have been low at different occasion when I glow often and then it turns too slow.

Hey guys, I work at a Ford Dealer, on cars not trucks, but there is a reflash for hard cold starts on the 6.0L Diesels.

When was the new flash released? I just recently bought a 2005 6.0, and don't know when it was reflashed last.

Back in the summer was the latest reflash that i am aware of.
You could just get you an SCT Xcal3 from DJ and his custom tunes have the cold fix in them

2003 6.0 F350 dually on high cholesterol fuel (WVO)
2000 7.3 Excursion also on a high cholesterol fuel
