conduct a cylinder contribution test. You most likely will have to take it back to the dealer for this. Also have an injector buzz test done. These two tests should have been done already. If not then they need to be done.

It sounds like you have a bad injector.

Or your fuel supply pump on the frame rail is going bad. But since it goes away when the engine is warm. I will say it is most likely an injector.

If the CEL is on there are codes. Get it on a real scanner

He says it comes on when he first starts the truck,. I took it as it shutting off once the truck is running. You know when you first turn the key on all the lights on the dash come on.

no what I meant is it keeps bogging out like it looses all power does this till it warms up then goes away and then check engine light goes off. I did have it scanned by the dealership and no codes and they said without a code they are unable to fix the problem.

Did they do a cylinder contribution and injector buzz test as well.

What was the ICP pressure at start up? You could be having IPR or a weak HPOP. When the oil is cool it is harder to push.
