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.

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
