In -13 degree weather I would not be complaining about the truck.... I'd be complaining about the fuel you put in. Sounds like a gelling problem.

wouldnt he need the red bottle diesel kleen 911? it has some alcohol in it so its taboo though. but the OP needs to change the fuel filters, drain the water/fuel seperater and buy fuel in a busy franchise station.

OK same night soon as I got into town I bought the red bottle of diesel keen added still did it on the way home and I plan on changing fuel filters soon as I can. And I bought the fuel from same place I've been buying it and has ran well. So I'm gonna drain the water separator also hope its nothing serious just have a bad gut feeling right now from a few other posts I've read. Thanks for the replies

Well guys got the fuel filters switched out and wow was that frame rail filter. Clogged up terrible all gelled up bad. But I was glad to see no water when I drained the water separator and seems to be running like a champ again. I take back all the bad **** I said bout the pickup. Thanks everyone
