6.0 cold start/ rough run

My 04 never had any issues until this winter. It wont start unless I cycle the glow plugs 4 times. Then it runs incredibly rough and wont get out of its own way until it reaches full operating temp. No other start issues after initial startup. Any ideas??? Straight exhaust, AEM intake, Hypertech module

I had the same issue and fixed it with some REV X additive. Other people have gotten a new flash from Ford and fixed it as well.

How cold are we talking? When were your oil and fuel filters changed last? What weight motor oil are you using? How old are the batteries? IMO, start with the basics and go from thier.

It could be alot of things that have been covered above. Voltage battery problem, oil quality and viscosity problem, Injector issues, Flash program issues. I'm following the Rev X stuff, it sounds very promising and could save alot of people some money.

My batteries are less than a year old, oil and filters were changed right before christmas, Rotella 15-40. I was about to order the glow plugs when I started hearing about the flash update. Local dealer is $120 for the latest update. I will try to get my truck down next week, and see where we go from there. The temp here the last couple weeks has been around 15-20 degrees in the morning.

I have always run amsoil series 3000 and never had a problem, had to change oil before a family crisis trip no choice and to leave asap so I used a competitors oil. I now have a hard start problems with mine when its cold she doesn't want to start and also runs like chit for a few. I have never plugged my truck in until now and I will be going back to amsoil. Have you made any changes to your oil or anything lately??

starts fine runs fine until 60 around 18 and 2000 then it stats missing wants to shut down blue smoke i can pull over and wait 2 min as long as i keep it runing
and it will clean up and if i rev it up a few times a bunch of blue smoke comes out and hit 60 0r 70 all over again in can an injector put in to much fuel or can the oil from the injector leak in to the cylender getting p0226 more than any other coad and by the way 6.0 powerstokes SUCKS
