Idle surge and stalling

I have an '04 6.0, a couple months ago it started to surge slightly at idle, it's getting worse, to the point it will surge bad enough to blow black smoke and sometimes the motor dies, could it be the ice sensor?

Check for codes. Then unplug the ICP sensor and run that way for awhile - see if the surging goes away. You can do the same thing w/ the EBP sensor.

What weight oil are you running? I was running 15W 40 and I had the surging. I switched to 5W 40 and it went away almost instantly.

It is the weight of the oil and not the additives that cause the surge. Try 5W 40 oil on your next change.
